Hello, welcome to mdvanii.com! 

Thank you for bearing with me as I develop the website!

I am in no way affiliated with BillyBoy*, BillyBoy* Toys, or Surreal Productions, the creator and manufacturer of the Mdvanii doll.  I am a collector, and hope to use this site to communicate with and share information with other collectors.

I will be adding photos from my own collection, as well as photos provided by other Mdvanii enthusiasts.  In some cases, the owners of the dolls/outfits do not wish to be identified, in other instances I'll be giving the owner's name. 






"Flame"  is a gorgeous platinum "New Basic" doll


This gorgeous ensemble is called "Chez Paul Poiret"


Does anyone know the name of this fabulous ensemble from Liberty of  London?
