Contacting Us about Illegal Products

Please contact us at the email address below if you find any illegal copies of Super Dollfie®, Dollfie Dream®, and their related items.

Please understand that we may not be able to answer each single question about illegal items, nor can we offer any kind of authentication services.

How we have responded to illegal items.
  • In 2003, Kyoto Prefectural Police arrested a vendor which manufactured and sold illegal copies of Super Dollfie® in Japan.
  • Around that time, dolls called "Cast Doll" which had similar characteristics as Super Dollfie® (Ball-Jointed Doll Casted in Urethane Resin) started to be sold on the Internet in Asian countries.

Unfortunately, dead copies of Super Dollfie® and imitation items that were made slightly different from the original ones in order to get around the law had been found there, so we took measures against that. We cooperated with customs to prevent the inflow of illegal items, and banned all the foreign-made dolls in our events including Dolls Party.

  • In recent years, we have received more reports about recast items of Volks Original items being sold by online stores or at auction.
    In particular, all of the items sold by the online shop which uses the images of Super Dollfie® Limited Models and allows customers to choose the skin colors are recast items.

Some of these items are called by misleading names like "Foreign-Made SD", or falsely sold inside Japan as second-hand VOLKS products.
These kinds of cases have been found in the items customers bring to "Parts-Exchange Service".

  • We are consulting lawyers to take appropriate legal steps.
    And when we confirm that illegal copies are sold on online consignment store, we immediately ask the store to stop selling the items.
    We also urge our customers to take precautions to prevent the spread of damage.
