Walking the Toy Aisle

With Christmas just a few months away, I expected to see more fun and exciting things on the shelves of Toys R Us. Alas, there isn’t much to cover at the moment, it seems! The most exciting thing in the aisles was probably the release of WellieWishers at Toys R Us stores.

WellieWishers are priced at $59.99, making them a little high (in my opinion) for the customers of Toys R Us. It is nice, though, to see these American Girl products in stores! I do think WellieWishers are pretty.

I was happily surprised to see a number of accessories already on shelves along with the dolls! Below are a few examples.

Another exciting addition to the toy aisles is Miraculous Ladybug. I hopped on the Miraculous Ladybug train a while ago. The CG superhero cartoon is beautifully animated and the stories, while formulaic, are really fun to watch! It took a while, but after a long wait, toys are finally making their way to the stores! There are other dolls out, too, besides this two pack. You can buy separate hero packs or buy Marinette and Adrian in their ‘every day look’, too. (If you haven’t watched Miraculous, you should! I recommend searching out the French language track with subtitles.)

Not much was super awe inspiring in the Barbie aisle. These two Ken’s are pretty cool looking, though! The molded shirt on the second Ken is disappointing, but both Kens are, dare I say, handsome? (That doesn’t always happen in Ken releases!)

My Little Pony Equestria Girl Mini‘s are adorable. Below is Flash. What a cutie! I don’t own any EQ Mini’s just yet, but want to pick up a few one day. They’d make great friends for my Pinky ST figures.

I reviewed a Berenguer Baby doll before. They are some of the cutest realistic baby dolls around. If you’re looking for one in a jiffy, you may want to check out Toys R Us!

Furreal’s Torch is adorable and I wouldn’t be shocked if it was on everyone’s (young or old) Christmas list! We saw Torch at Toy Fair (Hasbro coverage) and were blown away by his adorableness.

Here’s one for the 80’s cartoon gang! Look at these adorable Squinky sized Smurfs!!! So cute, right?

There were some Monster High on the shelves, but nothing super exciting. If anything, the thing I took away from the stock was the lack of Ghoulia. Poor Ghoulia is being left in the dust with this whole reboot, which is so sad. She’s my favorite character, next to Frankie and Holt. This was the only Ghoulia we saw. Ghoulia, we will never forget you.

    My TRU had a lot of interesting items, including some fashion packs, and a Made to Move Barbie with a few simple outfits. I even blogged about it: http://mylittledollcorner.blogspot.com/2016/09/lots-of-new-stuff-at-tru-including-made.html

    OMG, Mattel, You turned Ken into a 2013 Max Steel (but with less articulations)!!.
    In fact, the name of the Ken with glasses is Lazlo. I watched the Spy Squad Barbie movie. It was fun, despite the simplistic predictable plot. Characters were likeable, and Barbie wasn’t the one with the love interest so the movie is focused into action, not into romance, yeah!

    I’m on the lookout for the new 28″ Ever After High Madeline Hatter doll. She’s huge and has articulated arms!

    Love seeing the Wellie Wishers at Kohl’s and Toys R Us. Love some of the new Fashionista Barbies. I really like the new Lori dolls at Target and all of the great little accessories that are coming out for them. Bummed that some of the Toys R Us stores are going to stop carrying the Journey Girls. Love the blog!
