I first started collecting Fashion Royalty dolls in 2004. I only had a couple of dolls when I discovered Nippon Misaki. It is an Integrity Toys (IT) line manufactured exclusively for the Asian market. I immediately fell in love with the "playability" of these dolls. Harajuku Honey is still one of my very favorites. I really enjoyed Misaki dolls until about 2009 when IT seemed to lose interest in maintaining the line (49 dolls were released between 2004 - 2009 and less than half that number since).
There are several Misaki that I missed from the early years. Fortunately I was able to pick up two of them recently at great prices. The first is from 2006 and is called Autumn Champagne. I owned her once but used her in a trade. I have regretted the decision ever since, so you can't imagine how happy it made me to find a beautiful version NRFB to replace her.
