You could submit that to Engrish.com. I love inexplicable translation disasters.

My guess is it's some kind of computer translation error. I wonder what they really meant it to say...?

Maybe they meant to say that the eyes can move, like a Pullip's? Although with that shady side-glance the doll in the picture's giving me, I don't doubt that its eyes can "turn hostile". :really:

I found an Aliexpress listing for "Paternity scarves" instead of "Infinity scarves," made even more hilarious by the fact that the main photo is split-screen with an adult woman and a small child. ^^;

Kind of makes me wonder how a hybrid DC Elizabeth/Fairyland/Soom/DoD would look? Probably horrifying. And I know it certainly wouldn’t cost $33.99, considering that Elizabeth alone is normally $480 blank and without shipping.

4.9 stars. Gee, I wonder :what:

It's really just trying to tell you her eyes can change. That was basically it. My Chinese isn't the greatest but running it through Google translate was enough to get the gist of it...and it was ten times better than anything their translators managed. XD

Not Aliexpress, but Taobao, which is similar...Was looking at Night Lolita dolls when the translator gave me this:



"Blueberry Gentleman". XD

That's some kind of weird translation that happens when you have girls in "boy" clothes. You'll see the human-sized ones referred to as "gay prince" clothes pretty often, or Gay Gentleman (and another word I can't use because... yeah... the English equivalent of the style is "Prince" taking from the Japanese of "ouji"/王子 but somehow, Chinese sellers/makers decided to add extra characters to the descriptor, I guess to separate it from actual princely things?).

I used to work for a Taobao shopping service, and a friend currently runs one, so we chuckle over the inexplicable names of things all the time. One of our favourites recently was Gay Cat Prince Pumpkin Shorts. They were little bloomer-style pumpkin pants, with a cat tail and pawprint pockets, in pastel colours.

They're a brand called Night Lolita/Ye Luoli. Seem to be the same molds as the newer My Ballerina Dolls, I think the Ballerina dolls may have been made in the same factory. I've been collecting Taobao links and trying to decide which girl I want. XD

This seems to be the official store:
