A Little Boy at Last

Well by now most of you have probably heard that IpleHouse are discontinuing a number of their sculpts. Amongst them is BID Peekaboo, a little cutie with a slightly grumpy look about him. As I haven't been happy having Naias as a boy (mainly because he looks quite feminine), I decided to bring Peekaboo home with this face up and in light brown skin.


So this little one will replace Wren and join Finch and Raven in the Thunderbird Gang. (I guess this is what most people refer to re-shelling?) Not sure what wig I will be putting on him yet, but I'll have a couple of months while I'm waiting to decide that.

The former Wren (Naias) will become Eve, one of my Tom Boys, but will need a little sanding down below and something decent to wear.

  1. Hi Sandi!
    I didn't know that Iplehouse are discounting some of their sculpts. I think this one is a good choice, I like his grumpy facial expresion.
    Greetings ^^

    1. Hi Lily,
      Yes the 20% discount was a great help as it covered the cost of shipping. I really like his facial expression too, I think it gives him character.

    1. Thanks Musume, I think Naias will suit being a girl much better than being a boy. I will post pics when I get the right wig. Though I am a little scared about sanding off the boy part. UGH!

    1. Thanks Alejandra. He's not a popular sculpt so I think that's why he's being discontinued. Last time IH did this I missed out getting Ringo, so I was determined not to miss out this time. :)
      Hope your weekend's great too!

    1. Thank you Giac,
      I guess all good things come to an end sooner or later, but at least this time I managed to snag one before he was gone for good. :)

    1. Thanks Alasse. The resin colour will be different from what is posted here...slightly darker. I haven't been able to see one in the colour I selected, so I hope he turns out fine. :)

  7. Congrats! He's adorable, so I can't wait to see what you'll do with him.

    I've been tempted by the soon-to-be discontinued dolls too, but there are so many of them going that I haven't been able to select just one!

    1. Thank you Niina, I wanted a boy that looked like a boy, so I think he will fit in nicely when he finally arrives. :)

    1. Thanks Lucy, I'm happy I got in early and saved the 20%, but I'm keen to see what he looks like in the light brown skin. Will post him when he arrives. :)
