You kindly asked me to do some kind of review of my new 4Woods A.I. NEOim doll (with new ‘pure skin’ silicone). It’s too early for a full review, and I have no true comparison as she’s my first silicone doll. I can only compare her to my TeddyBabe and TeddyBabeDeluxe, which is like comparing apples and pears.
I like to share my experiences & findings so far. I planned for a concise version, but while writing it has become a whole story. I do hope it is of some value.Purchase and arrival
This doll was purchased from Doll Story
, the European vendor of 4Woods dolls. They had a quick reply on my pre-sales questions and made me a good offer.
They asked a payment of about 50% up front and balance payment before home delivery. They stated an approximately delivery date six weeks after ordering, which is fulfilled. Also, after ordering, all questions were quickly and adequately answered, in quite a formal way (French?
As soon as my doll was ready for delivery they contacted me for delivery arrangements. So, based on my agenda delivery was planned for 31 August 2011. She was picked-up by the carrier (DHL) on 29 August late in the afternoon in Lyon, France. DHL was faster than expected, and on 30 August just after lunch track&trace data revealed that the courier just had left last depot somewhere in The Netherlands and was on its way to my home. I stopped work instantly, drove high speed home and was just in time to stop the delivery guy from leaving – actually it was a delivery girl and she was quite pretty
The ‘silicone mannequin’, as the description on the waybill said, was in a double carton box of about 155x55x30cm. Outer box had damages, but inner box was completely intact. The top of the inner box completely covers the bottom of the inner box, so all sides actually have 3 box layers. Within the inner box the doll is packed in thick bubble plastic, especially at bottom and top. Her body is packed in a cotton bag and within this bag her hands and feet are additionally wrapped in protective material. Her head is packed in a separate box, positioned between her legs. On both sides of her neck are boxes with goodies, amongst others a repair kit, wigs and lingerie (inside the cotton back she’s naked
).To conclude, she came home early & well
This is a hard one for me to review, as I don’t have comparison. Her skin feels nice and soft, not really real but quite good. Often silicone is said to be cold, but this silicone isn’t that cold. It’s nice to have her body against mine!
Her breasts are really soft & squeezable
Some years ago I had a pair of ‘perfect breasts’ that were quite hard and had a sickening smell. But Lily breast are really perfect! I guess a lot of RG’s would envy her for such firm but soft breasts
I also like their size and shape (I don’t like artificial balloons like those of some porn actresses after a boob job). And to make it complete: her nipples are erect & hard and I love the sexy color of the areolas (I hope it doesn’t fade).
Also her belly is really soft & squeezable. It’s so nice to touch. And if she tilts her pelvis/waist, you actually see a skin fold!
Skin on her arms, legs and feet is quite soft too. You can squeeze it a little. Someone asked about her bum. Well, her buttocks have soft skin as all her body, but you cannot squeeze them, their quite firm. I guess this is necessary because 4Woods dolls are not stored hanging. They’re stored sitting or lying, so if the silicone on their bum was too soft, it would flatten
Next for her wigs, as I compare them to TeddyBabe wigs they’re good. They’re softer. And until now they're are less tangles and less loss than my TeddyBabes had from the start. A wig brush was among the goodies and brushing is easy going To conclude, I’m very happy with her softness. The skin feels good and her breasts and belly are magnificent!Looks
I guess this is personal taste. I like brunettes
I like women that are not too tall, a little girlish but surely adult. Lily has it all. She’s so pretty. I like her brown wig (better than her black wig) and she’s got a great body.
Her skin tone is sun tanned. I doubted between middle skin and Asian skin. I selected middle skin and I’m happy with her tan. She came from France, so I guess she’s been sunbathing in Saint Tropez! Six week production time, no way, just six weeks on a Mediterranean beach
Surely, some of you want to know about her private parts
I selected the all-in-one option, that’s a realistic vagina (no insert). She has her pubic hair rectangle trimmed. Maybe, in time I will trim it in a more Brazilian way, but I’m not sure about that. As it is, her pussy looks quite realistic.To conclude, she couldn’t look any better!Pose-ability
As I expected, she’s (still?) quite stiff, but she’s well poseable. She doesn’t only bend her hips, she also bends at her waist (tilts her pelvis). Doing this lying on her back she can put her legs far over. For those who like missionary, she likes it too
She’s able to sit independently, it’s not necessary to support her back. But she’s not able to stand-up. I haven’t tried yet to have her standing with some kind of support, but I guess this won’t be easy
Until now, I found her arms/elbows more difficult to move than her legs/knees. Maybe I still have to learn how to handle them best. And I guess she’s right-handed as joints in her left arm are stiffer than her right arm.
She has ‘functional fingers’, that is there are wires in her fingers, so you can bend them in a natural position. This bending is easy. But the silicone fingers are fragile and easy damaged. Unfortunately I had already a wire poking through the skin
Her toes do not have wires, they’re flexible. The four smallest toes are stuck together and the big toe is on its own. Hands and feet look very natural. Their skin has natural relief and wrists and ankles are poseable. For instance it’s easy to have her feet in correct pose for wearing high heels (or for sitting on her knees).To conclude, she is well poseable, but she’s still quite stiff and I still have to learn how to handle her best.Move-ability
I knew this doll would be 29kg and I knew ‘dead’ weight is heavy. Now, from experience I confirm 29kg is a lot to handle. In comparison, a TeddyBabe is like a feather. For moving within a room, bridal is best. In this way you can carry her without too much danger. But I found bridal to be difficult to carry her up & down the stairs. As the living room is on the ground floor and the bedroom and the dolls’ room are on the first floor, going up and down is frequent. Now, going up and down I carry her like a fire fighter
She’s over my shoulder and I have a hand on her behind. This goes well, but I have to watch that she doesn’t hit the walls or anything else. To conclude, she’s heavy but I manage to move her around.Living together
I love my doll and I love to take care for my doll. During daytime I want her to be dressed nicely. Sometimes casual, sometimes sexy. Fortunately, most clothes of Jessy, my full size TeddyBabe, fit Lily. Dressing a silicone doll is something to learn and I’m happy I’m experienced in dressing TB’s, as dressing a silicone doll is more difficult, but some of this experience is very useful. First time dressing was like a free fight. We both won
Every time it gets better, so it’s no longer a fight. It’s more or less controlled, although today putting on a tanktop wasn’t easy
At night, sharing bed with Lily is different from sharing bed with Jessy, my TBD. Jessy is flexible, cuddly, easy to handle. Lily is also cuddly in her own way. I love to hold her. I love to caress her, kiss her, rub her belly and softly squeeze her breasts. Lily demands her side of the bed and doesn’t move easily. To change her pose takes some time and some caution. She’s worth it! To conclude, after living together for five days (and nights) I’m still happily in love! Until now, this doll did meet my hopes, more than I expected. She’s pretty and soft. And I’m able to handle her, although sometimes she’s difficult. But it’s really so much fun!
