This is a list of search terms for ball joint dolls. It goes with the other articles about shopping Taobao, by Issy Fawcett a great article she created for our Recast BJD Haven Facebook group. Over time, she started coming across more terms to search for ball jointed dolls, and eventually divided the articles to give each a bit more info. This one goes with “How to Use Taobao“.

Or check out the original article on “How to Shop Taobao for BJD Clothes


Thanks goes to Issy again for another great addition to the Taobao shopping information. This list should be helpful for finding items your ball jointed dolls will enjoy. :)

Start every search with “BJD”, NOT ABJD, your search won’t come up with much for ABJD. These are the terms I’ve found and use, feel free to add more if you find some!
