Dolly Review: My Little Pony Express (March)

It’s time again for a new My Little Pony Express box opening post!  As you know, Ruth over on Etsy runs something called ‘My Little Pony Express‘.  It’s a subscription box service based around the first generation of My Little Ponies. Since writing about this program a few months back, it has changed slightly.  The three and six month subscription packages are gone, meaning the boxes have to be ordered month to month. As of yesterday, the April subscription boxes were sold out.  (They sold out very quickly from the looks of it!) I recommend ‘liking’ the My Little Pony Express facebook page for instant updates on the program.

January brought me Bubbles.  February brought me an Italian Posey. Here’s what was in my March subscription box!

This month brought me an Italian Applejack with curly hair!  The Italian Applejack differs from the US Applejack in a few ways.  The green eyes of the US pony are instead blue in this Italian release.  The coloring on the cutie marks differ slightly, as well.

Dolly Review: Ever After High Lizzie Hearts

Lizzie Hearts is finally in my collection! After months of searching, one lonely Lizzie was sitting on the shelf, waiting to be snatched up by yours truly. What can I say?  Lizzie was totally worth the wait. (I’ve learned that this is actually the new re-issue of Lizzie.  The original release had more details.)

Lizzie Hearts

Lizzie Hearts

Lizzie has tons of style.  She’s on a short body, like Maddie, which draws her apart from many dolls in the Ever After High line.

Lizzie Hearts

Lizzie Hearts

Lizzie has rooted black hair with bright apple red highlights in the front.

Lizzie Hearts

Lizzie Hearts

I really like the contrast between the black and red.  It looks great!  Held in with tabs is a large gold crown.  It looks really neat!  I would recommend leaving the tabs in the doll, because I don’t see her crown staying in place without them. Behind her crown is a sprayed down curl. I lucked out and found a doll with a very nice curl, though with Mattel’s quality control problems, I can imagine some left with less than perfect hair.

Lizzie Hearts

Lizzie Hearts

Lizzie has a fantastic face. The show stopper is the heart that surrounds her right eye. Her eyes are large and green.  They’re highlighted with heavy black eye liner and long lashes.  Lizzie has red lips and her peach skin is blush free.

Lizzie Hearts

Lizzie Hearts

As far as outfits go, this may be my favorite Ever After High outfit so far! Lizzie wears a sleeveless dress that is perfect for her character.  With a red, gold and black color scheme, her outfit is reminiscent of a decorative deck of cards.

Lizzie Hearts

Lizzie Hearts

The dress itself is very tight, but doesn’t look tight due to the checked fabric on the sides of the outfit. Lizzie’s black fish net tights are decorated with red hearts. With heavy play, you’ll probably find that Lizzie’s tights will slip down. Her red shoes play on the card theme, as well.

Lizzie Hearts

Lizzie Hearts

Lizzie’s joints work well.  One thing to mention on her body, though, are her black gloved hands.  She has black molded hands and two black bracelets that double as the ‘lacy’ bottom of the gloves.

Lizzie Hearts

Lizzie Hearts

As far as pros go, I love the look of Lizzie from head to toe!  Her color scheme is spot on.  The hair styling on this doll is cute and, to be honest, I prefer it to the prototypes (and short lived/hard to find original releases) styling which had two sausage curls atop her head.  Her face paint is very pretty, as well. And finally, Lizzie’s short stature– I love it!

Lizzie Hearts

Cons are few and far between on this girl.  I can’t think of anything that really bothers me about her final product, other than the fact that it took months to find her.

Toy Fair 2015- JC Toys

I’m not a baby doll collector, however, I do appreciate well made baby dolls.  JC Toys had a booth of really impressive baby dolls at Toy Fair. This family run company has been in the doll world for quite some time.  Their Artistic Director, Salvador Berenguer, has an eye for crafting really nice, realistic faces and expressions.  Here are a few of the items they had on display.

Toy Fair 2015- JC Toys

I believe the dolls above are from the ‘First Day’ 15″ anatomically correct La Newborn Baby dolls.

Toy Fair 2015- JC Toys

This crib has dolls from the polka dot and white star lines.

One thing was clear from the booth’s showings– they have a variety of sculpts and skin tones.

I love the faces on these dolls! The expressions are fantastic. The hands and feet are also quite detailed.

Stepping away from babies, JC Toys also had some different play dolls on display.  Below are some examples, including their Lil’ Cutesies.

The real high points for me were the baby dolls, though.  I loved the variety. They definitely looked like they were made with quality and care.  And the expressions?  So cute!

Dolly Review: Maru and Friends Tanya

Last year, I reviewed Maru from the Maru and Friends doll line.  To my surprise, I received an e-mail early February from the company asking if I’d review another one of their dolls.  Of course, I said yes!  Up for review today is Maru’s friend Tanya. Tanya is 20″ tall and vinyl.

Meet Tanya!

Meet Tanya!

If you’re familiar with Tanya’s original release, you may notice a small difference in the doll I’m reviewing.  The original release had crimped hair with lots of body.  The second version, the doll I’m reviewing today, has been out for two years and has silky hair with a light curl to it.

Tanya

Tanya

With a face sculpt by Dianna Effner, Tanya is a cutie.  Tanya has a pensive expression, which I love.  If you look closely, you’ll notice that while Maru and Tanya share a sculptor, they’re not identical.  That doesn’t always happen in doll lines of this size.

Maru and Tanya

Maru and Tanya

Her almond eyes are a gorgeous coppery brown, very much like a Tigers Eye (the stone).  They look amazing on her olive colored vinyl.  Just like Maru, she has ‘real’ upper eye lashes and painted on lower lashes.

Tanya

Tanya

Another feature I love on her face are her chubby cheeks, brushed with a light rouge.  Her lips are a natural mauve like color.  If it weren’t for the faces on these dolls, they’d be like any other 18″ doll line.  However, Dianna Effner’s craftsmanship is seen clearly in this series and that is a huge reason why they stand out amongst others.

Tanya

Tanya

And look at her profile. Gorgeous!

Tanya

Tanya

Tanya is wigged.  As I mentioned before, her silky hair is chestnut (with some red shades tossed in for good measure) with a light curl.

Tanya

Tanya

When compared to promo shots, it doesn’t seem to have as much body as you’re lead to believe. However, it feels nice and, while it lacks body, the style (a basic side part) is very cute on her.

Tanya

Maru and Tanya

For the most part, I like Tanya’s outfit.  It’s a knit two piece that consists of a long turquoise sweater with hidden snaps and a belt, and leggings made in the same color.  Under her sweater is a spaghetti strap top and, of course, white undies. I love the sweater.  There are so many small details that they didn’t need to put on her outfit, but did anyway.  Her pockets, for example.  I love them!

Tanya

Tanya

As far as cons, the outfit might do well with another snap, higher on the sweater.  Sometimes, the garment puckers in a weird spot across the chest.  However, I love the color, especially on this dolls skin tone.

Tanya

Tanya

The outfit is completed with black riding boots.  While I like the way they look with the outfit, the shoes seem to hinder Tanya in a way Maru wasn’t.  Tanya has a really hard time standing and I think it has everything to do with the heel on her boots.

Tanya and Maru

Tanya and Maru

To get Tanya to stand while wearing the boots, you have to stand her so her torso pushes forward more so than you might assume.

Maru and Tanya

Maru and Tanya

Tanya

Tanya

Speaking of joints, Tanya has a head that can tilt in multiple directions.  She has shoulder and hip joints, as well.  Tanya doesn’t have joints in her elbows, knees or ankles.

Tanya

Tanya

I hope these dolls receive elbow joints one day.  While her shoulder and hip joints allow her to move well in all directions and hold poses well, elbow joints would be a nice addition to her body.

Tanya

Tanya

As far as quality is concerned, Maru and Friends are completely worth their price point.  They have far more vibrancy than similar lines and have some of the best face sculpts I’ve seen.  I highly recommend taking a peek at Maru and Friends.

You can find Maru and Friends online, on facebook and on youtube.  If you live in the Florida area, you can actually see these guys in person at one of their showrooms in Miami and Coral Gables.

Mattel’s new Play, Rate and Review Program

Recently, Mattel started posting about a new Play, Rate and Review program open to anyone and everyone in the United States. The idea, from what I gather, is that the company will be putting products up on their website.  If you want to review an item you see, you’ll select it and Mattel will ship it to you free of charge.  After that, you’re obligated to review that item on the program’s website.  Now, that’s just my idea of what this program will be based off the FAQ’s.  It could be completely different.  We’ll have to wait and see.

Program

Program

This program covers all Mattel products, not just Barbie’s.  I signed up a week ago to see what this was all about. So far, I have yet to see anything appear on the site for review. To sign up for yourself, visit Mattel’s special website.

Do you think this will help or hinder Mattel?  Share your thoughts below.

Toy Fair 2015- Adora

I’m a fan of Adora dolls, though I can’t say I own any. There’s a vendor at our local doll show that always brings beautiful Adora dolls, however, he’s not the most personable seller. It was nice being able to see Adora dolls in a different environment!  Here’s some of the highlights from the booth.

Toy Fair 2015- Adora

My personal favorites from Adora are the large 20″ baby dolls, the ToddlerTime Babies.  They have such expressive faces and substantial bodies.  I think they’re so pretty. The ginger/redheads, Froggy Fun Girl and Boy, seen above, were my absolute favorite Adora dolls at Toy Fair.

Toy Fair 2015- Adora

The boy in blue below, Woof, was such a cutie!

Toy Fair 2015- Adora

My second favorite thing seen at the Adora booth was one of their new products, Mixxie Mopsie.

Toy Fair 2015- Adora

You can actually detach Mixxie’s arms and legs and reattach new ones.  What I love about these is their play value.  Baby dolls are nice, but they can be hard for kids to hug as they sleep.  These plush dolls look soft and huggable!

Toy Fair 2015- Adora

Adora BabyTime Babies have some of the cutest baby faces I’ve ever seen. I love the almond eyes and open mouths.

Toy Fair 2015- Adora

Also on display were some 18″ dolls called Adora Friends.  Now, I personally prefer other 18″ doll brands.  However, there were some mighty cute outfits on display.  The two outfits below (the panda and western themed outfits) were designed by children and were entries in a contest Adora runs each year called By Kids, For Kids.

Walking the Toy Aisle

With only one or two more Toy Fair reports left, I thought it was about time to post a new Walking the Toy Aisle! Here’s a few things I saw while browsing the shelves last week.

Insurgent Barbie

Insurgent Barbie

Fun fact: I was an extra in Divergent.  You can see me twice, if you know where to look.  Because of that, I’ve kept an eye on the doll line.  While I liked the ‘Divergent’ Tris, I love this Insurgent Tris!  The short hair looks fantastic on this doll!

5th Music Group

Fifth Harmony Group

Fifth Harmony Doll, Lauren

Have you heard of ‘Fifth Harmony‘?  Apparently, they’re a musical group.  I, personally, have never heard of them.  The doll versions of the group are really well done, though.  Lauren and Camila are my favorites.

Anna and Elsa

Anna and Elsa

There were some Frozen items that were, I’ll be honest, super scary.  These two My Size dolls were not.

Anna Styling Head

Anna Styling Head

This Anna styling head, on the other hand, was not my favorite Frozen item.  I don’t like the face and don’t see much resemblance to the animated character.  Maybe it’s too long or not wide enough?  I’m not sure what the problem is for me, but it isn’t my cup of tea!

MIniature Frozen

Mini Dolls

I did quite like these miniature Frozen dolls.  Little Kristoff is adorable.  Anna’s hair color is a bit strange, but the faces on these are rather cute.

Barbie

Barbie

I am loving Barbie’s rebranding.  I haven’t liked a bathing suit Barbie in forever, but Glam Vacation Barbie is super cute!  And, she has a real bathing suit!  (There are a number of Barbie’s in the Barbie aisle with painted on suits.  Not a good trend.)

Kelly

Kelly

Which brings me to this new Chelsea/Kelly doll.  Notice her painted on top.  Why, oh, why do you insist on doing this, Mattel?

As 2015 progresses, we’ll be seeing many new Star Wars toys.  The large figures seen above are quite neat! Han and Luke look pretty good, much better than some of the small action figures.

Moxie Girlz haven’t done much for me since they debuted.  However, these Moxie Girlz Friends caught my eye while shopping.  They’re kind of cute and definitely different from the dolls we’re used to.

So, there are a few items I saw while browsing the toy aisles this past week. What have you seen recently?  Share your thoughts below!

Toy Fair 2015- Viola Studio Dolls

Viola Studio Dolls made their debut in 2008.  They are soft body dolls made out of high quality materials.  These plush dolls caught my eye because of their unique, playful look.  The designer, Viola Hale, has a fantastic eye for color and design.

Currently, I don’t see any Studio Dolls on Viola’s Etsy page, but there are miniature versions of the dolls seen above.  This one is done in a different style, but I adore her! Viola also makes clothing for children.

Dolly Review: MiWorld Sprinkles Cupcakes

I’m a huge fan of MiWorld and have been since they debuted last year.  This Christmas, I received a new MiWorld room, Sprinkles Cupcakes.  I’ve never actually heard of Sprinkles before, so I can’t say much about how this miniature set compares to the real life store.  I can, however, give you a sneak peek into what it looks like and how it compares to past MiWorld sets!

Sprinkles Cupcakes

Sprinkles Cupcakes

Sprinkles is considered a ‘starter set’, not a deluxe set.  That means, it is one room as opposed to two rooms.  Sprinkles has a very colorful back drop.  The walls are decorated in lots of bright colors.  One wall features merchandise, like t-shirts.  The second wall features the menu board and 2D cabinets holding supplies. The backdrops fit well into the base.  Before you place the wall into the thin cardstock floor panel, remember to place down the thin pink floor piece.  The walls attach with a very tiny L shaped piece of plastic.  It’s very easy to lose, but, unlike past sets, seems to stay in place!

Sprinkles Cupcake

Sprinkles Cupcake

As far as large furniture pieces, this set has a few.  The biggest accessory is the display case.  It comes in multiple pieces, so you’ll have to put it together. I’ve found that mine stays together well and looks pretty neat when all is said and done!  It holds accessories well, too!

Sprinkles Cupcakes

Sprinkles Cupcakes

The second piece you have to put together is the table and chair set.  The table and chair aren’t the best accessories I’ve seen in a MiWorld set.  They seem flimsy.  My table is just slightly off due to pieces not fitting properly.  I love the ‘peanut butter cup’ look to the table top, though!

Sprinkles Cupcakes

Sprinkles Cupcakes

Besides the large set pieces, this set includes a number of smaller accessories.  Inside are twelve cupcakes, two t-shirts, two canisters (of what, I’m not sure), two coffees, two plates and two flavor capsules.  There are also three foldable boxes.

Like other MiWorld sets, there are some stickers you’ll have to apply to get the full effect. The stickers are easy to remove, but they have a few problems of their own.  Mainly, it’s hard to tell where some of the stickers go.  For example, there’s this huge Cupcake ATM sticker, but I’m not certain where to actually put it!

Sprinkles Cupcakes

Sprinkles Cupcakes

It would make sense to put it in the empty white space on the second wall, but then again, why would a cup cake ATM go behind the register?  The cupcakes get stickered with dots, which was strange to me at first, but I went with it anyway.

Sprinkles Cupcakes

One major issue with the stickers is that they don’t like sticking to the miniature accessories.  To make sure the stickers stay on, you’ll probably want to tape these down with clear tape.

Sprinkles Cupcakes

Sprinkles Cupcakes

I think the MiWorld sets are really great, in general, but this set is a bit of a let down.  I love the color of the backdrop and the fantastic display case, but the table and chair set is a disappointment.  It seems to me that this set, more so than the rest, went through the most changes from prototype to actual product.  Still, though, you couldn’t ask for a better backdrop for your tiny dolls.

Toy Fair 2015- Madame Alexander

One of the first booths I visited at Toy Fair was Madame Alexander.  Madame Alexander has a rich history and has made a huge impact on the doll world.  As you know, I am a huge fan of vintage, hard plastic Madame Alexanders, so it was a treat getting to see what was in store for this long-lasting brand in 2015.

Many different items were on display at Toy Fair.  Here are some of my favorite dolls featured at the show.

Toy Fair 2015- Madame Alexander

Above are the Travel Friends dolls.  These 7″ dolls are so cute.  Notice the joints at the elbows and knees!  The Travel Friends made their debut in 2014.

Toy Fair 2015- Madame Alexander

New for 2015 is the NASCAR line.  Madame Alexander partnered with superstar Danica Patrick, driver of the No. 10 GoDaddy Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. While I’m not a NASCAR fan myself, research shows that one out of three girls ages 6-11 are fans of the sport. With statistics like that, I’m surprised we haven’t seen more NASCAR branded doll lines. These tiny dolls, aimed at 3 and up, will retail for $16.95.  The NASCAR, I Dream and Storybook lines are set to launch in the fall.

Toy Fair 2015- Madame Alexander

The dolls in the I Dream collection are nice, as well.  The chef is my favorite.

Toy Fair 2015- Madame Alexander

Above is Beauty from the Storybook collection.  Of all the 7″ dolls featured at the show, Beauty is my pick for prettiest!

Toy Fair 2015- Madame Alexander

The dolls pictured above may be my absolute favorite new items in the Madame Alexander booth.  These are prototypes of the new Playline DC Collection.  I hope the actual Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn dolls are as cool looking as these!

Toy Fair 2015- Madame Alexander

Also in the DC Collection are three 8″ superheroes: Wonder Woman, Batman and Catwoman. These are set to launch Fall of 2015.

Toy Fair 2015- Madame Alexander

18″ dolls were on display, as well.  My personal favorites were the Isaac Mizrahi dolls.

The 10″ Snow White below is wearing a historically accurate outfit, circ 16th c. Germany, and is influenced by medieval, gothic and baroque styles. There are other princesses in historically accurate styles, as well.

The steampunk Little Red Riding Hood was pretty awesome to see, too.

Toy Fair 2015- Madame Alexander

The only disappointment for me in regards to my booth visit was that the rep confirmed that the company showroom/museum, which had beautiful vintage Madame Alexanders on display, had closed its doors and that there were no plans to re-open it at this time.  I visited the showroom when I was in New York a few years back.  It was the highlight of my trip (and I wasn’t even a Madame Alexander collector back then). The showroom, open to the public for viewing and birthday parties, was a great reminder of the vast history of this legendary brand.  Sadly, I doubt this unique showroom will ever return and that’s a major loss to doll collectors who find themselves in the New York City area.

For more images, visit my flickr album.  And don’t forget to check out Madame Alexander online, on youtube, on twitter and on facebook!
