I’m so very interested in Sapphire Fox Hair for my preschoolers and K4.
They say it comes with a prop version (.hr2) for “all of our favourite figures”, too.

Will I be able to make it fit to them easily just by scaling and adjusting? And do props always fit any figure??

It will take some work, but in principle yes it should be possible to get it to fit any figure.

It would be more accurate to say “props can be made to fit any figure, with enough tweaking”. Usually. Eventually. Hair props in particular can be a bit fiddly — it isn’t too difficult to get close to a pretty good fit, with patience, but sometimes all you can do is just avoid looking at the hair from certain angles where it can’t be fixed without a bit of remodelling.

Sometimes DAZ offers hair props with the comment: “fits the following characters”
In the case of my wanted Sapphire Fox Hair they say: “for all of your favourite figures”

I agree with those who have responded above. The prop hair should fit “all your favorite figures” but it may take some work—it won’t necessarily be easy or automatic. I’ve made a tutorial that (among other things) goes into some detail about how to fit prop hair to a figure it wasn’t designed for: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/5646/

Hope you find it useful!
