This list isn't as diverse as The Complete Guide to Sailor Moon Dolls – primarily because the majority of Doremi releases are similar dolls with slightly different accessories. They are all made by Bandai.

The accessories were Sharp Friends playsets (2000) and various outfits and prams for Hana dolls (2000-2001).
 
Bandai Europe started releasing Doremi dolls in 2005. Only one doll, Hanna, was a copy of Babu Babu Hana-chan, the rest were either original dolls, like Magica Doremi Parlante, or dolls using Japanese bodies but packed with different accessories and outfits. 
Witchling dolls were produced for the USA, Magica Doremi dolls were released in Italy in co-operation with GiG, Dorémi Magique (2007) were made for other European countries.

Bandai Doremi playsets were rereleased in Europe as Univers Dorémi Magique series.
 

Bandai Asia released several big Doremi playsets which included 12cm dolls.

 

After several attempts to buy at least one Character Model Original Doll, I had to content myself with the first in the line, Kurumi.

Character Model was a series of resin kits, probably distibuted as a magazine supplement, which occasionally included doll kits. However, the first three dolls didn't have to be assembled.

The Kurumi dolls that I see in the Internet are usually kept sealed in the box, so I decided to unpack this one.

The doll has a standard Super Action Jenny body. The boots are too massive and loose for her small feet.

I like Kurumi's beautiful blue eyes and her 90's looks.

P60127 142002

Maybe the hairline is too bright, but it looks neat.

The contents of the box are a typical SAJ stand, plastic gloves, arm warmers (or, rather, sleeves) and... a bucket?!

Here is what Kurumi looks like when she wears the accessories.

As for the bucket, it is, in fact, a maid headband! You have to cut it out from this piece of plastic, so at least one DIY element is present.

It doesn't look very convincing on her head (and can't be secured properly).

P60127 144726

In general, Kurumi is a very good-looking doll, but there is nothing special about her, as she is basically similar to any other Takara poseable doll.
