Shopping

Man I remember the days when the first thing I would do was pop onto @bountifulbaby and see who was on sale :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts: see if any new kits were released or if any of the babies I’ve been wanting was back in stock.

Idk why but the Magical feel good feelings this used to give me is gone and I rarely check the site. Part of it is it’s changed so much :worried: one of my favorite things to do was check out all the customer review pics to see different versions of the kits and get inspired.

I just realized the other day my wish list is gone too :flushed:

The way the kits are in the shop is organized different

They aren’t doing a little descriptive write up for each Realborn like they did when I first started. They each used to have a little bio on who their siblings were if any and how much the actual baby weighed. I’m guessing maybe that info was to personal and maybe weirded some people out but it did kinda give an idea of proportions etc and somehow made them more real to me and less just a kit :pleading_face:

The out of stock kit page is so inaccurate I stopped anticipating kits being stocked… I know this isn’t BB’s fault as shipping is so unpredictable but it’s almost like they have forgotten we are addicted and are feeding on any updated info that comes out.

I don’t know maybe they do more on Facebook :woman_shrugging:t2: I can’t stand the way Facebook works now the info isn’t in any order that I can understand when I go to someones page and when something is difficult I give up.

Maybe I’m just being whiney cause I need a new kit fix :rofl:

I’m still waiting for sleeping Sunny. Should be in stock in May, but there’s only one week of May left.

I have an overall feeling of blah the last 2 years or so of reborning. So I get what you mean.

Seems like nothing is the same.

Yep, I think so too. Such a shame.
Ive been wanting to get her to take with me to events. May even get both asleep and awake and turn them into twins. Swap them out at events and pretend there’s only one. Tell people she fell asleep. Wonder how many people I can fool with that. :rofl:

The entire world is not the same as it was before two years ago. I just hope that things can recover and start coming back to what they were.

Seems like there was a turning point in the reborn world around 2015. Not just with Bountiful baby but the entire community. I had a baby in 2015 and put a pause on reborning and when I came back to the community, most of the forums had disappeared, most people were selling on other social medias, and the focus went more to silicones. Honestly, I have felt lost and have been greatful that Bountiful Baby has kept its forum open becasue I dislike FB groups because its not much of a community and just more a place to sell/buy dolls. I also do not trust selling/buying on there. I have much to say about the change in the community but I will stop there. It has made me very sad and almost feeling kind of like a loss to me.

Edited to add*** Lots of people now use Tiktok, Instagram and Twitter to sell dolls and even though I am only in my early 30s, I have to admit, I have no idea how to use any of those. FB is enough for me to navigate. LOL

TikTok is fun IG is intimidating cause everything seems so perfect lol

I was thinking the other day that maybe people are getting tired of the same old BB kits already, I know I am! It’s just taking so long for the new kits to get released. I wish they wouldn’t announce them until the release is closer, the WAIT is horrible. Maybe it’s just me, but I get bored of doing the same kit multiple times. JMO

The new website is so confusing to navigate through! I loved having that gallery page where I could just scroll down and see all the kits.

Definitely used to do this everyday, a few times a day because sometimes the sales would change that fast.
