Here in America, we have Realdoll. The Japanese equivalent is called Candy Girl Dolls. If you have never heard of either one of them, you probably have a girlfriend. The craftsmanship by both of these dolls are so lifelike; it’s scary. Every feature of the Candy Girl Doll is anatomically correct… if you want it to be. There are many different styles, “shapes,” and every other thing that makes a human unique. However, if you live here in the states, getting your hand on a Candy Girl Doll will be a little bit tricky. You may be able to talk Rinkya into making that happen.
Meet Ta-bo, not to be confused with Billy Blanks Taebo which is also hugely popular in Japan. He’s a 45-year-old engineer from Japan. When he arrives home, it’s not to a wife or girlfriend, but to a living room full of Candy Girl Dolls. He has spent over $170,000 on his collection. Ta-bo says,
A human girl can cheat on you or betray you sometimes, but these dolls never do those thing. They belong to me 100 percent
While I can’t blame him because some of those Candy Girl Dolls look quote real, I feel it’s hard to imitate a female’s touch. Maybe he just hasn’t found the right one yet. He’s not alone, seems there are even forums dedicated to those with a love doll addiction.
