The first Lati that I bought was a White Special Cherny, and she arrived in October of 2009.
On my doll page you can find the link to the Lati site. Just warning you though, they only take orders every few months and then you wait for ages for your Lati to arrive, but you can spend the wait dreaming about which one you want to buy next!. I most certainly will be buying a few more of them, but it is so difficult to decide which one.
Here is a link to a Flickr group for Lati’s. I find that looking at what other people have bought, and how they dress them helps me make decisions. Lati White
Finding clothes for the larger size Lati’s is quite easy, but for the smaller sized White Lati, finding clothing to fit them is an entirely different matter. An example of this is; searching on Etsy you can easily find clothes of all sorts for the Yellow Lati, also for the White Special. For the White size though, you will be lucky if there are more than a couple of sellers making clothes for them.
The clothes made for the Pukipuki doll fit the white special quite well, so there you a few more options between them. For the Lati White the Fairyland LittlePuki clothes will fit and I have been known to have mine wear the larger White Special clothes. The smaller sized Kelly clothes and some Strawberry Shortcake clothes that you can find on eBay fit well.
If you are wondering why I bought the smaller size I will say that the White Special just appealed to me, and I wasn’t aware how difficult it was going to find clothing.
For size reference, the Lati White Basic is 3.85 inches, or 9.8 cm tall. The Lati White Special is 4.75 inches tall, or 12 cm tall. The Lati Yellow is 6.3 inches, or 16 cm tall. Since I am going to buy a Pukipuki at some point, they are 4.40 inches, or 11.2 cm tall.

Last piece of information on Lati sizes. Susan 402 on Flickr has taken loads of photo’s that are quite helpful, and this link is a Lati size comparison photo that perfectly shows the differences in sizes of the Lati’s.
My second Lati is a White Laches, and he is a little brother to my White sp. He is definitely a tiny one, and is very cute, even though his head is way to big for his body.
I have sold him because he just wasn’t for me, and he is now living in California with a very large family of Lati’s.
I ordered my first Lati Yellow in November of 2010 and am waiting for her arrival! I am slowly buying clothes, shoes and wigs for her.
