This site is about puppy52’s dolls, toys and dolls related crafts :D
Why “52”? I was told by a girlfriend 52 looks like a heart shape as a pager code, I guess since domains like puppylove, puppyluv were long taken up, I’ll use puppy52 for my first online gallery. Puppy52 had stuck for more than 10 years now and over period, puppy52 expanded into dolly related area under puppy52doll. And now Puppy 52 dolls (with the extra “s”)  is born in 2009!

Below is photo taken July 5 2009 at our previous home office.

This expanding doll hobby all started with one blythe doll, over time it grew and extended into other types of toys and hobbies like making clothes, to entering a “Blythe beauty contest” (Which included conceptualizing, customizing and sewing for the base doll)…

Loosely translated of above:
Based on the song Mary had a Little Lamb. The pull ring forms the collar for the puppet lamb and so the two (Daisy and Clover) are always together. Wiggle your finger and you can show off the lamb puppet. How very cute!

More on Daisy and Clover

I have also met many new friends who share the same love for the hobby. In 2009 I joined forces with 2 talented girls, Yuki and Mai to create another custom blythe – Glacier Lily, for the Blythe Beauty Contest 2009, and we managed to become a finalist as well!

While I am currently distracted with my love for Volk’s Dollfie Dream, I still love my blythe dolls, and time to time I still get tempted…  Currently, I have them displayed in my “Sewing Dungeon” as my husband fondly nicknamed it, mainly due to that that little nook of a room does not have any windows. But I like that it is a cozy place I can get creative (=Messy ^^; ).

I still do some part-time illustration work time to time, and post my art on puppy52art.com when I get a chance to :) Some of my more current illustration works are done for dannychoo.com notably Mirai fox and Working Mirai‘s images. It was thanks to Danny that I got hooked onto Dollfie Dream. ^^;  I was also had the pleasure to work with Danny to create some doll clothing for Danny’s lovely Dollfie Dream musumes.

Since I use a laptop, I tend to move around in the house depending on the most optimum conditions to work with.  My work space was being featured on Otacool and now Otacool 3 too ^o^!

Below is photo taken Nov 16 2009, we just moved in and the Dollfie dream girls were finally set free from their box ^^;

    Hi there,

    I was wondering if you still take orders for Smart doll clothes. I was browsing under “buy category” but couldn’t find a catalogue of available items. Btw, how much will it cost to ship to Calgary and how many days? Thanks. More Power!

      Hi! Thanks for your interest, could you kindly e-mail me at puppy52(at)gmail so we can discuss in detail? I hand make everything myself and currently have not open any pre-orders. I am based in Vancouver so shipping to Calgary may take up to a week or 10 days unless you pay for expedited shipping. And that is not included time needed to make the item ^^;/

    Hello, where can I find these dolls? I really like them and I am also a doll collector.

      Hi, the big headed dolls are called Blythes, the anime-style dolls are Dollfie Dream :) Dollfie Dream is by Volks Japan, you probably can find them online?

    Hello puppy52

    I really admire your work and I’m wondering whether you sew by hand or machine? ^^
    I too wish to begin making doll clothes seriously once I save enough money for a doll ^^
