I firmly believe that BJDs are the most beautiful dolls in the world. They look insanely real and so much work is being invested in creating them, that you can simply not ignore them. It’s enough to see a few and you will be forever a fan of ball jointed dolls. And today I have a nice treat for you, no matter if you’re an experienced collector or just getting into this hobby: the best BJDs under $300.
Usually, these dolls sell for small fortunes. It’s not uncommon for clothing items alone to sell for over $300 a piece – and this is one of the reasons why many believe it’s a hobby for the rich only. That’s not really the case as there are fairly priced options as well – as you can see in today’s article.
So what we did was to visit Amazon and check out tens of beautiful ball jointed dolls, select the most amazing of them all and share our findings with you. All these dolls are selling for under $300 at the moment of writing this article – and some of them come fully equipped with all the items in the photos. Some don’t, so make sure you read all the details and be ready to spend a bit more for your hobby afterwards.
We did our best to choose the most beautiful BJDs available on market right now and selling for a fair price. I personally thought that we’ll have very limited options, but I am happy to find out that it’s not the case. As a result, we have more than 10 beautiful ball jointed dolls to recommend below and I am sure you’ll fall in love with each of them. So pick your favorite(s), order them and make them part of your collection or, why not, family. You’ll see that they’re extremely rewarding and you’ll feel amazing in their company. Ask any BJD owner out there: it’s an activity that’s worth every cent spent on it!

Now let’s see which are the best ball jointed dolls you can buy right now. You can click the photo or the link at the bottom to check out each of these dolls, find more details and see more pictures.
BJD: Elf Ear Girl
I don’t really know why they call her “Elf Ear Girl” since her ears seem human-like to me. But this problem aside, we’re talking about a beautifully made doll with a really nice body and beautiful face. You can’t help but love those large eyes, right?
The doll is 65cm tall and it’s made out of resin. Only the doll and her face (with makeup) are included, so you won’t also get the shirt in the photo, nor the wig.
Cristina Baby BJD (MK MysticKids)
The look in her eyes is a killer! She looks a bit sad, a bit nostalgic, and you definitely need to get her and care for her like nobody else does. A really beautiful doll overall, I absolutely love those eyes and the small paw-tattoo on her left cheek.
Cristina is 27cm tall, so it’s a smaller doll. It also comes with free makeup and you’ll receive some random gifts as well. But it’s worth having in mind that the clothes in the photo and the wig are not included in the price.
SD Nice Brunette
This is definitely the sexiest doll on our list. Beautiful and ready to make you bite your lips when you see her and have beautiful dreams over the night. Classy, stylish and insanely beautiful – that’s how I would describe her, the miss BJD on the list.
It’s a large doll too (65cm), but comes without the clothes and wig. The face and makeup are included, though.
After the recommended model above, we’re getting back to innocence with a bride doll. She’s cute and has beautiful brown eyes (she can’t blink, though). All in all, extremely cheap and great value since the clothes are also included in the package. 45cm tall.
Meng Meng Dollfie
A funny baby boy that has everything he needs to put you under his spell. This is a hand made product, crafted from high quality resin and looking absolutely amazing. You can’t help but love this doll!
It’s a small doll (17cm) but it comes with all the items you can see in the photos – all clothes, makeup and hair. This is a great way to have a complete BJD for a really good price!
Vidar Baby Spirit BJD
Bring some magic to your home with this spirit kid. Vidar has a jade-green color and looks absolutely amazing. His face is extremely intense and loveable. Great doll overall!
It’s a larger doll too – standing 27.5cm tall. The price is for the doll only, but you can have the manufacturers give you the clothes and everything you see in the photo for a bit of extra money. Or you can make it your quest to craft them by yourself. It’s your choice.
Custom Made Ball Jointed Doll
Although her green eyes seem a bit sad (maybe because she has such a generic name?), this doll is really beautiful. Large (42 cm) and made of resin, it offers a ton of customization options and can prove to be a great companion.
The doll sells without clothes and wig, but you will receive some random gifts for her after making the purchase. It’s great value in my opinion!
St. Lucia in Black
She’s a bit spooky, but at the same time extremely cute. You will instantly fall in love with her intense, red eyes and that nice facial makeup. Great attention paid to all details by its manufacturers!
She’s also a decently sized doll at 27.5cm, but the package does not include the clothes and wig. Those can be ordered at an extra.
I really didn’t know if I should include this or not on the list. The main reason behind that is that I am not a really huge fan of ball jointed dolls that represent such unhumanly creatures. But this one is still really cute and nice and definitely loveable.
It’s very small though (just 10cm), and the description doesn’t make it clear if you’re getting it with clothes and all items or not. This is the second reason why I really considered including it on the list. Probably you can talk to the manufacturer and find out – I believe that everything is included judging from the price / size ratio.
Cute Girl Duck Mouth
A little girl that brings a lot of joy! She’s really cute and happy and can brighten up your day without a problem! The doll also comes with a set of free gifts for her, so you get some customization options too. Worth looking at, in my opinion.
Yummy the Ball Jointed Doll
Yummy is even happier – and so sweet that you indeed can think that she’s made of candy. She’s not, fortunately – she’s made of resin and comes in a small size: just 17cm. But it’s all beauty and happiness!
The listing price is for the bare doll only, but you can order the accessories and everything else you see in the photo for an extra and at the moment of writing this, the whole package would still be just a bit over $300. A good deal, overall!
Nostalgic BJD Model
Another one with killer eyes. It breaks my heart to see them so sad, but maybe she’s just thinking about her lover who hasn’t called for a while (but will soon). Either way, she definitely looks like a great companion and an even more amazing doll to own. Check her out!
This is definitely an expensive hobby, but you don’t always have to spend fortunes in order to get into this or in order to expand your collection. I am confident that our findings above will amaze you and you’ll find at least a favorite.
Make sure that you check out all the details on the dolls’ store pages to know exactly what you’re getting when ordering, and prepare to discover a brand new and extremely amazing world: the world of BJDs. It’s absolutely spectacular – one of the best hobbies out there!
