Kurhn Goes Disney

The doll market has been pretty dry recently, so I thought I would talk a bit about one of my favorite doll brands, Kurhn. Specifically, I want to showcase some of the adorable Kurhn/Disney collaborations. The Disney releases are usually found on sites like AliExpress or eBay. They aren’t typically found at Walt Disney World or at China Sprout, who carry some non-licensed dolls. (Australians, you can find a few at Red Q Panda!) For those who don’t know, Kurhn is the Barbie of China. The popular fashion doll is sold all over China at stores like Wal-Mart, Trust Mart and Toys R Us. They also can be found at Shanghai Disney Resort.

I wish we had Kurhn at our toy stores! To see this many together– I’m jealous! Maybe it’s a good thing, though, because I don’t know if I could resist leaving without one (or all of them)!

With summer (and summer vacations) nearly upon us, I thought it would be a great time to showcase some of the dolls under the Kurhn/Disney collaboration! This post will mostly feature photos, since there’s no good reference for Kurhn dolls online.

This picture is of two different two sets, each with a Kurhn and a child. The outfits are a bit casual, but you can tell right away that they’re Minnie and Mickey themed! How adorable are the Mickey ears? These four are ready for a day at the park, for sure!

Kurhn’s also come in fancier outfits, like this Minnie themed ball gown. I would love to have this doll in my collection.

 

This Kurhn is ready to party in her Minnie dress! It’s a cute, simple look!

Another Kurhn set I’d love to add to my collection. Modern Minnie gives you one doll and two outfits that are very different in style.

This bathing suit Kurhn is a bit more basic than the others listed before her with the common bob haircut and non articulated limbs, but her bathing suit and accessories are super cute.

Kurhn playsets come with some really cute pieces. In this case, the doll comes with a whole Minnie themed room with a dresser and shelving unit!

Sometimes, you’ll see Kurhn’s with different style faces. I don’t know if they’re different characters or if it’s just something they change on a whim to not become stale, but Minnie Style Sweet Outfits uses a different face paint style than the other dolls featured in this post. It’s not my favorite face, but still cute.

If the doll isn’t your taste, but you love the ouftits, have no fear! There are outfit packs, too! Because Kurhn is 1/6th scale, like Barbie, the outfits should fit many other dolls. One of these outfits would be perfect for your dolly traveling companion next time you go to the Disney parks!

Sold without a doll is this cute coffee table and chair set. Perfect for a doll house!

The Shanghai Disney Resort Exclusive Minnie Kurhn doll is super pretty! If anyone vacations at Shanghai Disney Resort this summer, please let me know! The teal and orange look so pretty together!

Here’s another cute playset. The doll is similar to the one in the playset mentioned earlier. The souvenir stand is a fun prop, though!

Kurhn dolls usually feature some fun fashions and the one above and below are no exception! I especially love the doll with the braids!

 

By no means does this post feature all the dolls in the Kurhn/Disney collaboration. There are more that I’m sure are floating around the internet, so consider this a small sampling! Which Disney Kurhn is your favorite? Do you own any of these? Where do you usually find your Kurhn dolls? Let us know in the comment area!

    These are quite cute. I especially liked Modern Minnie and the outfits are nice too. I had a quick look at the Red O Panda site and it looks as if the dolls are selling out fast. Very affordable prices though.

      So cute! I’m tempted to buy the outfits one of these days!

    I have the bathing suit Kurhn and she is absolutely adorable! I put her onto one of the more articulated bodies and she’s even cuter!

    I have a Disney Kurhn girl that I got off ebay about 2 or 3 years ago. She has 2 dresses and a Mickey ear headband. I usually have her in a pink polka dot dress with a Minnie on the skirt. I’d post a picture if I knew how to do it.

      Sounds like a cute set! It’s nice that so many playsets featured extra outfits or accessories.

    Never seen Kurhn in real life! These Minnie-themed dolls are adorable though, and I’d love to find one.

      I’ve been lucky enough to find one at a doll show, but it is much easier to find online!

    My fave is definitely the Shanghai Disney Resort Exclusive. I love her hairstyle. The teal and orange are different, bold, and definitely pretty! I just wish she had articulated wrists.

    I also like Modern Minnie and the swimsuit one. Honestly, I’m just amazed there are this many Mickey and Minnie inspired dolls and outfits. (Also, amused Alibaba had a link to an ad when I clicked on the image. It was really sweet though.)

    One day I think I need to get a Kurhn. No idea which one… lol I guess whenever I’m serious, whoever grabs me the most on Alibaba.

    I love the Modern Minnie set. I got a Disney Kurhn set a couple of years ago, Minnie Mouse Picnic Combination. I love that it came with so many outfits. 4 full outfits and multiple accessories. And the dolls are so affordable.

    This doll company is new to me. Thanks for sharing this information. The dolls are very pretty. I like the doll in the teal and the orange. It outfit feels culturally authentic.

    • kewpie83 replied:

      You’re welcome! I’m always happy to introduce people to Kurhn dolls. 🙂

    So, this is unrelated but I think you might be interested! I saw a post about this on another doll blog (Crazy Doll Lady on WordPress) but I can’t contribute to the Kickstarter right now, other than to signal boost (our current car is now caput and we need to get a new one… well, new-used. As such, all of my potential luxury purchases for the near future are also caput.) I was a little uncertain at first but the prototypes and the doll designs look good! 🙂

    Did you buy any of these? I tried to order one, and it went through. Then the seller sent me a message about it being sold out, so (s)he had some choices for me and promised to send some pretty accessories. Non of her/his alternatives was the same standard as the doll that I had ordered. Then I saw that the only review was from another person who had also gotten an alternative doll. So I started wondering if it was a thing that sellers do: show something pretty, someone buys it, sale goes through (which should not
    be possible when the item is unavailable), offer buyer some gift and some not nearly half as good item, buyer feels sorry, and then happy that seller is so good at finding another solution, seller gets away with sending things that are not worth what buyer paid. Therefore I wondered if you ordered the dolls and got them?

      I’ve bought Kurhns from Aliexpress before without a problem. None of the Disney ones, though.
