Yes, with the following caveat:

Since UK legislation has been creatively revisited in March 2019, the selling of such a 'functional' childlike doll in the UK could be illegal as it promotes illegal activity, thereby falling foul of obscenity laws.

https://www.cps.gov.uk/legal-guidanc...olls-childlike

Specifically:

(b) Publishing an obscene article, whether for gain or not, or having an obscene article for publication for gain, contrary to section 2(1) Obscene Publications Act 1959 (“OPA 1959”).

A 'for sale' listing would be 'publishing'.

One should note that (b) above also brings simple ownership into question if you intend publishing the 'article'...

what conclusions can be made from this? That 140cm dolls are ok?

the whole thing regarding smaller dolls is incredibly frustrating, as we are given no objective criteria by the law instead we are at the mercy of subjective opinions of "authority" figures

Talking Thanks for thread info

Thanks to Shamus for directing me to this thread someone appeared interested in Lola (whose 108cm not 110cm in my post, can't seem to update that line up top) and we exchanged some PM's even with Moi quoting very reasonable fuel to personally deliver and the reply I received was this:

I consulted several experienced doll owners and they were all unanimous in expressing doubt over the legality of owning a doll that is less than 126cm in the UK.
It is a pity but do not want to break any laws regarding this issue.
I expressed my intentions to buy the item as it is a manageable weight but did not fully appreciate the legal consequences.
Therefore I have no option but to cancel the transaction and wish you a successful sale in the future.


I'm in no real hurry to sell, so happy to wait for the right buyer to come along.

Thumbs up Clients height

I forgot to add that my actual client who had bought the doll was only 5'3 and I'm 5'7 so her height/weight was a massive factor when it came to purchasing, no other reason. She takes up less space and I can move her from room to room without a struggle.

I best keep an eye out if a post is incoming!

Itís such a tricky minefield. Iíve been on the look out for a smaller doll for a good year or so (since I had to let go of my 157B to a member here) - sadly too heavy and big to keep out of sight with the family around but have sorely missed that company when able to.

Iím sure one day Iíll come across the right one, though looks like time is running out of legislation changes 😂

I wouldn't lose any sleep over it at the moment snowleopard. With the complete shitshow ongoing at the moment, our government has far too much on it's plate, and banning dolls is gonna be way, way down their list of priorities.
