A ball-jointed doll is any doll that is articulated with ball and socket joints. BJD was firstly founded by Japanese artists using porcelain or Polyurethane resins to make their artworks. They are usually large, humanoid and less cartoony. When the idea was born, it was out of control and swept the whole of east Asia, and soon to be global. They were usually considered to be cute and anime-inspired. After all, who can say no to a cartoon doll with movable joints?
