Product Development - Smart Doll

I wanted to create a 1/3 scale fashion doll modelled after Mirai but no manufacturer was interested in working with me. After having the door slammed in my face, I spent about 2 years researching material properties, various molding methods and then doing extensive networking to find vendors who I could work with.

I used up pretty much all the cashflow that my company saved and started to develop our own brand of fashion dolls in Japan using 3D printers to make molds.

Today, Smart Doll is in thousands of homes worldwide owned by creative folks who love to customize and take photos of their new companion.
