Hey Bratz Fans! We’ve finally got some Bratz news to share, or well, it’s news to us! The blog of a former MGA designer was brought to our attention, and we are floored by what’s on it! The blog is called Sparkling and Sensuous, and is that of Youngsin Kwon, former Bratz & Moxie Girlz designer for MGA! In 2011 (How on Earth did we all miss this?!), Kwon posted quite a few of her designs for the Bratz, and Moxie Girlz, and we are living! Check them all out below.

Top L-R: Unreleased Costume Party Jade, Unreleased Alter Ego Jade, Fall 2008 Passion 4 Fashion Cloe. Bottom L-R: Unreleased Costume Party Yasmin, Play Sportz X-Treme Motocross Jade, Fall 2008 Passion 4 Fashion Cloe. Click to view BIG full size!

Some of these should look pretty familiar to you guys, like the unreleased 2009 Costume Party line that was briefly on mgae.com, or the Passion 4 Fashion fall 2008 line which obviously did come out, but is it not totally AMAZING to see them in their earliest stages on paper?! It’s also fun to note how the designs were changed for production. And what shouldn’t look familiar is the never-before-heard-of Alter Ego line! We have to wonder if this idea is what led to the Moxie Girlz’ spring 2010 More2Me range? The designs Jade is rockin’ here are totally more edgy than anything from that, though. Imagine a Jade with hair like that?! *_*

This second set is especially interesting, as we get a peek at what was planned for the fall 2009 Magic Hair range! Previously, there was just a prototype for the Big Bratz Yasmin from the line (Note the obvious “scene queen” inspiration!) From what we have so far, it looks like the focus would have been on color, but maybe cutting layers, too? So many questions! Also worth noting is Party Sasha’s adorable sketch with her more textured, and lighter-colored, hair! Thank goodness those sneakers were upgraded to Princess heels though 😉

The third and final set of Bratz designs is one that really stands out to us, ‘cuz we get a peek at the original ideas for Iconz (Jade’s parasol – eep! And again, thank goodness for editing in Sasha’s case, LOL), as well as the original (Again very “Scene Queen”-influenced) Best Friends 2-pack, which eventually ended up with the Moxie Girlz, and another totally NEW discover, the “Rebel Royalty” line! Now it’s no secret that MGA had toyed with that idea before, as the working titles for the fan-fave Bratz Princess line were “Rebel Princess” and “Ragin’ Royals”, but who would have suspected a more urban, street-fashioned sequel was in the works for ’09, or maybe even 2010?! We love love LOVE the inclusion of the mask, and that yellow fur!

And while some of you might not be too into the Moxie Girlz, we couldn’t leave out the FAB sketches for them! Sophina’s crimps are everything, and we can only imagine what “Granola Girl” was for x) So, what are your thoughts? Anything you wish we got in 2009? Any ideas you’d like to see revisited at some point? Sound off on facebook, twitter, and tumblr!

O M G! How amazing are they?! All four of them are just amazing, honestly even better than we expected! Cloe is WORKING her website designer look with those glasses and streaks! Bunny Boo is a fave of ours too in her fashion designer getup – love the yellow streaks and cute tape measurer! And peep the new cat-eye screening 😉 Jade is just fantastic!! Crimped bob with a Missoni print dress?! Yes please! And Yasmin is ready to start the party in her rockin’ hot DJ look – so obsessed with her gloves and microbraids!

So, what are YOUR thoughts on this fab new line?! Are you excited to see the girlz rockin’ careers for the first time ever? Thanks again to Matt for sharing this amazing find with us!

LOVE this line!!! Though we’ll be honest, thes dolls are a bit of a small let down in comparison to the dolls shown on the back of the box. The fashions are identical thankfully, but the fabrics look a little bit cheaper (Mostly Yasmin), and all of them have recycled faces… Plus, where are Jade’s crimps?!

UPDATE #2! Cloe has been revealed and we are happy to say that she still looks 100% awesome!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Thanks to WordPress.com, we’ve got a really awesome report on just how far we’ve come in our first year at BratzBoulevard.com! Check out a little excerpt below, and then click the link to see the whole thing!

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 100,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.

We are so grateful to all of our readers, and we are beyond stoked for 2013! New year, new Bratz, new Bratz Boulevard!

Happy New Year Bratz Fans!

Today we’ve got some major updates, thanks to our flickr friend meike! She has shared promo photos for both the new Spring 2013 Bratz Totally Polished and the Bratz Mermaids dolls! Check ’em out below, and see more of them at Smythstoys.com!

Bratz Totally Polished is honestly so much better than even we were expecting! We love the trendy casual, boho chic look that the girlz are sporting, while still remaining true to their own unique senses of style! Note that the “promo” Cloe is from this line, and that Meygan and Fianna are in the mix as well! We are totally loving the big mix of fabrics and patterns in each doll’s fashion, and how they’re all very different from one another yet look great all together anyways! Each doll includes a set of press-on nails “For You!” that match their outfits.

Official Description: “Style is at your fingertips with Bratz Totally Polished! Match your favorite dolls fashion with a one-of-a-kind nail look! Each girl wears trendy new fashions and comes with adhesive reusable nails for the girls that match each Bratz outfit.”

Bratz Mysterious Mermaids! As you can see, this line is actually where that mysterious Jade we revealed is from! Who would have thought those “dragon wing” details were actually supposed to represent fins? LOL! We are absolutely in love with this line! It’s very fantasy, while also very Bratz and fashion-forward. Cloe is totally the stand-out with her amazing top and silver lips! Each doll actually has the ability to transform from a mermaid to a human Bratz girl, with the help of some magnets and the Bratz’ signature snap-on feet (which are VERY well covered in this line! Love those NEW shoe molds!)

Official Description: “The Bratz are adding a splash of glam to the deep blue sea as Mysterious Mermaids. Each Bratz doll magically transforms from a girl to a mermaid! Special magnetic mermaid fins are removable and transform into two different outfits! Pop on the heels(included) for a completely new look!”
