The source of parts used to make the doll is unknown. They are said to be left-over parts, parts that did not pass TAKARA quality standard, prototypes that eventually got discarded, parts made on the side etc.
Some people consider the factory doll a counterfeit. Regardless of what she is, she is cute for playing with, a great fun for taking photographs and practice on customising.
