Regardless of the origin, inflatable dolls as special tools really flourished in Japan.
In 1977, the well-known Japanese inflatable doll manufacturer “Oriental Industry” (Orient Industries) was established. In 1987, the “shadow body” of Oriental Industry. In 1999, “Asuka” of Oriental Industry.
The most expensive dolls in the world can sell for hundreds of thousands. The 3D modeled face, the sight of the eyeball can be adjusted, the built-in heating device maintains the body temperature, the “semi-solid skeleton” simulates the activities of human joints, and the human hair can be implanted to shape it as you like.

But dolls are just dolls after all. No matter how real the semi-solid bones are, they can’t become mechanical arms. Soft bodies do not equal flexibility. The practicality of high-end inflatable dolls has gradually given way to ornamental.
“It takes a long time to change the posture, Ella is still very heavy and it is very difficult to hold, and after a long time there is no interest.” Slina said that Ella is an imported girlfriend he bought for $500.
In the unity of opposites between spirit and form, the more vivid the photos of inflatable dolls are, the more they emphasize the emptiness of the spirit behind them. From this perspective, the evolution of inflatable dolls seems to be a sociological issue.
Inflatable dolls have no hearts, but many people are willing to believe that they have hearts.
American documentary “Love me love my doll” interviews those who choose to accompany inflatable dolls for life. The interviewee said to the camera: “In the beginning, there was only a physical relationship with the doll, but slowly I just wanted to sleep by her side and appreciate her. I don’t care about being alone at all, because I’m not lonely.”

In “The Air Figure”, when Xiaowang’s owner found out that Xiaowang was alive, his first reaction was not surprise, but panic.

The owner begged her to change back into an inflatable doll: “It’s too much trouble for me to fall in love…that’s why I chose you.”
It’s the best thing you can do if you don’t leak.

She doesn’t cheat, she doesn’t get sick, she doesn’t get old, she doesn’t get fat, she doesn’t grow wrinkles, she doesn’t yell at you.
The lack of a soul is her only weakness, but she just so happens to be an ideal container for your imaginary perfect lover.
