We play with dolls as children pretending to be our favorite characters and stars. Then we grow up, get jobs, pay bills, and spend the remainder of our money on more dolls. Well, what else are you going to spend your money on? Food? Well, that is why ramen is so cheap.
Here is a list of 15 anime-inspired dolls (one a bit of a cheat but still inspired by anime) every anime fan needs in their collection. These dolls range in price from a couple of hundred dollars to an amount you will have to win the lottery for. But then again, the anime fandom has never been cheap, and you would only spend that money on boring things like electricity anyways, so get ready to sit in the dark with a bowl of instant noodles, surrounded by your expensive new friends!

A few tips on caring for your new dolls
Never immerse a doll fully in water. To clean them, use a well wrung out damp cloth.
Keep all accessories together. Ziploc bags are useful for this.
Treat doll hair the same way you would treat baby hair. Use baby shampoo and dry naturally.
Use Q tips to clean joints regularly. They collect dust fast.
Never be tempted to use alcohol based cleaning products. These can remove paintwork.
Never be tempted to trim hair. You remember what happened to Barbie when you were six, right?
- You should consider getting any doll over $200 in value insured. Parts break and accidents happen, then you find that the more expensive ones cost more to fix than buying a new doll.
