Hey Bratz Fans!

We know a lot of you (and us too!) have been going crazy trying to find some of this fall’s Bratz – more specifically the Trend it! 1.5 line with Shadi, Vinessa, and Meygan, this year’s Pajama Party line, Crystalicious Deluxe, and the Bratz Chic Mystique Funky Fashion Makeover heads! Unfortunately, we are able to confirm that all of the listed items are international exclusives, and at the moment, MGA does not have immediate plans to release them in North America. BUT, there is one silver lining to this cloud! One of our friends over at MGA has informed us that she’s going to let the Bratz team know how much we’d love to see these lines (especially Trend it! ;)) and hopefully we’ll get them at some point next year! Nothing’s guaranteed, but it’s totally possible!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Normally, we try to avoid posting articles about prototypes, as we don’t really feel they qualify as news (unless they’re protos for something that hasn’t come out yet ;D), but these are just too cool not to share! We’ve got photos of some AWESOME prototypes for the Bratz Totally Tattoo’d line (clearly from when it was still called “Biker Babez”), and some interesting shots of Crystalicious protos as well! Check ’em out below.

W O W! Are they hot or what? We’re really happy to see that the fashions didn’t change much other than a few rips here and there and some losses of fabric. Something we wish hadn’t changed at all though is that hair! We love the choppy, colorful chunks that the girlz are rockin’ here. It’s definitely something we don’t see everyday from the Bratz! Those helmets would have been majorly cute accessories too, but with the name change, it makes sense that we’d lose those too. Either way, we’re loving our final Totally Tattoo’d dolls just as much!

And next up is this odd prototype shot for Crystalicious! The fashions are literally exactly like the released dolls’, but the hair and faces are totally different! These prototypes look to have modified versions of some of last year’s faces. Cloe appears to have her Slumber Party face, with reshaped lips and added lashes. Jade actually looks to have a whole new face (and some really GORGEOUS curly brown hair!) , and Yasmin’s appears to be her 2010 Basic face, with the same modifications as Cloe’s. Also worth noting is that funky tinsel extension in Cloe’s hair. The final extension definitely didn’t come out like that (thankfully ;P)

So, what are your thoughts on these pretty protos? Tweet us @BratzBoulevard, let us know on facebook (facebook.com/BratzBoulevard), or post about ’em in the forum at BratzBoulevard.com!

Hey Bratz Fans!

We’ve finally got an update on the Bratz Crystalicious Deluxe dolls and Spa playset! Our friend at MGA has confirmed for us today that the line appears to be an international release. For those who don’t know, “international” in MGA terms means it won’t be coming to North America. We’re a little bummed that us North American Bratzies can’t get our hands on the CUTE real-working hairdryers, but at least those overseas can! Hopefully we’ll see them in a different line at some point though…

Updates at Bratz.com!

August 12, 2012

Hey Bratz Fans!

So there hasn’t been much news in the world of Bratz over the past week or so, but today we’re happy to report that Bratz.com has updated some of its pages! The catalog now features most of this fall’s product lines, though interestingly enough, the Ultimate Spa Makeover line doesn’t have any products under its listing! We do know that a series of Funky Fashion Makeover heads are/were in the works for this collection though 😉

Also updated is the video page! The latest episode of the Bratz Trends show with Brianna Gage is up, in which Bri discusses how to switch up your look from day to night with Cymphonique Miller of How to Rock! Totally worth checking out 😀

So what do you guys think of the latest additions to Bratz.com? Let us know on the forum!

Hey Bratz Fans!

By now, we’re sure everyone’s read the listings for Bratz Crystalicious on sites like Target.com, Very.co.uk, Walmart.com, etc. and has come across details like a real-working hairdryer, and glitter hairgel coming with the dolls. We’ll be the first to admit, we thought all of that was just a mistake, and that perhaps the websites were confusing the dolls with the Salon and Spa playset, which does include a real working hairdryer. Besides, we’ve got photos of the dolls in their boxes! MGA wouldn’t put out two “classes” of the same line, would they? Yes they would, and they have! Thanks to a recent listing with photos, we can now confirm that there is a deluxe version of the Bratz Crystalicious line that will include a real-working hairdryer and glitter hair gel! Check out Jade below…

As you all can see, the only differences are the boxes and of course, the added hairdryer and glitter gel. The dolls themselves remain unchanged 🙂

Hey Bratz Fans!

Today we’ve got a huge update, thanks to our friend Justin! He’s shared links to practically everything coming out on WalMart.com!

To start with our favorite, here are the new Bratz Boyz coming out for this fall! We absolutely love them! Cade coming back is a dream come true, and especially for Totally Tattoo’d like we had hoped! Cameron appears to be sporting his Funk ‘n Glow outfit from this spring, but that’s okay as that doll never came out anyways! Koby is dressed for winter, though we’re not too sure exactly which line he’s for. He certainly wouldn’t fit in alongside the Bratz Pink Winter Dream girls! Either way though, Koby looks awesome and we’re more than ready for his comeback!

New Boyz! L-R: Cade, Cameron, and Koby! Click to view full-size

And while we’re on the topic of Pink Winter Dream, MGA will be continuing their popular Big Bratz line with a WalMart exclusive Big Bratz Pink Winter Dream Cloe and Yasmin! Their listings have no pictures yet, but here’s the description:

“Join the Bratz in their fabulous Pink Winter World! The Big Bratz Pink Winter Dream Doll wears her own special shade of pink furry fashions, from light pastel to beautiful brights. Each doll comes with a fancy party dress and belt to go from snow to sensational!
Big Bratz Pink Winter Dream Doll:

  • Fabulous, fur-embellished fashions
  • Comes with a fancy party dress and belt to go from snow to sensational
  • Includes their own cocoa cup and collectible animal charm keychain
  • Dimensions: 5″L x 5″W x 24″H”

Sounds pretty dreamy! ^_^

Another product listing with no photo that we thought sounded pretty awesome is a new Bratz RC car and doll set!
“The Bratz Radio-Controlled Vehicle with Doll lets the Bratz cruise in style and listen to their favorite music in a remote controlled car. The Bratz Radio-Controlled Vehicle features a speaker with input for mp3 players and fits two Bratz dolls.
Bratz 27MHz Radio-Controlled Vehicle with Doll:

  • Remote control-operated
  • Speaker with input for mp3 player
  • Fits 2 Bratz dolls (1 Bratz doll included)
  • Requires 8 AA batteries (not included)
  • Dimensions: 7.5″L x 22.75″W x 7.5″H”
And a line with pictures is this year’s Bratz Holiday line! So far, it looks like Yasmin, Cloe, and Jade are the only girls in it, though there are rumors that a Sasha will be included as well. We’ll have to wait and see! Regardless, we totally love these dolls’ outfits! Yasmin is pretty in purple and gorgeous in gold as always 😉 Cloe’s definitely a stand-out for us though. Her hair and makeup actually remind us a bit of Christina Aguilera LOL! And her dress is very trendy with the faux-ostrich feather skirt and trim! Jade is stunning as well, and we definitely don’t get to see her in green very much anymore! Her dress is pretty cute with its Christmas Tree-inspired shape and coloring. We absolutely adore the netting on top!

WalMart also has listings for all of the Boutique, Totally Tattoo’d, Chic Mystique, Style Starz, and Crystalicious dolls and sets, as well as all but Cloe in Strut it!, but since we’ve shared all of those before, there’s no need for us to post them again 🙂
And on to Bratzillaz! Again, there are listings for things we’ve already reported on (Cafe Zap, Secret Message Pad, Dolls, Pets, and Fashion Packs) so we’ll be skipping those here 😉
First up are the Bratzillaz Accessory Packs! Their names are Charmed Life, Wicked Night Out, and Academy Style. We love how wintery Academy Style looks (Very Hogwarts lol!) and while Charmed Life isn’t quite as blinged-out as we were expecting, it still lives up to its name with such high-class accessories! Wicked Night Out is super sassy, just like we want in a “club”-themed set.

Also listed is the Bratzillaz Crystal Ball playset! While we have reported on this product quite a bit in the past, we now have a photo of the set to share!

Another big thanks to our pal Justin for sharing these listings. We can’t wait to find all of this in stores!

Hey Bratz Fans!

If you remember our second post, then you know there’s a line called Biker Babez coming out that we haven’t heard much of – until today that is! Our awesome friend Maxim shared a new (final!) promo picture featuring Meygan, Jade, Cloe, and Yasmin from the line! It hasn’t been confirmed that Sasha will be making an appearance in this collection, but it’s very likely that she will. 🙂

Biker Babez! L-R: Meygan, Jade, Cloe, and Yasmin!

Meygan is definitely the standout doll in this line for us! The very first thing we noticed was her dark brown lipstick, which is a major throwback to Meygan’s roots – we totally missed seeing our Funky Fashion Monkey with her dark, dramatic tones! Her hair color is also absolutely stunning, in a very bright red with a few auburn lowlights. Her outfit is very cool too, with her skin-tight black pants, skull motifs, and electric blue vest! Of course she’s got on her tattoo sleeves, as that is the main feature of the line.

Jade is a knockout as well! While she has done pink streaks a lot over the past few years, it’s one of her signature quirks and it works in a line like this. We love how MGA switched things up a bit and gave her grey eyes though! Her outfit is very Pretty ‘N’ Punk with her schoolgirl skirt, and the studded pink pleather top is giving us some major biker vibes!

Cloe’s probably the one whose look has been switched up the most here, and we love her! Her hair is very golden blonde here, as opposed to her usual platinum locks, and she’s also got some brown lowlights. Her makeup is very dramatic as well, with fire engine red lips that pop against her pale blue eyes! Her outfit is giving off some Britney vibes LOL, but we’re always down for a Brit nod! Like Meygan, Cloe’s got on skintight leggings, but her’s fit into her boots – which are also to die for, by the way! The chain belt is an awesome detail as well!

Yasmin is another standout for us. Immediately, we noticed that MGA is using her darker hair color for this line, and mixing in some raspberry colors as well! We like that MGA kept Yasmin’s earthy theme alive by giving her the least dramatic makeup in the line too. Her netted top with a black tube top underneath is a favorite piece of our’s, and we adore her high-waisted leather shorts too! Her peachy pink vest on top contrasts really nicely against the darker pieces. In our opinion, Yasmin looks like the one who’s most ready to hop on a Harley and ride off! And if you’ve seen the Bratz episode “Truth or Dare”, you’d know she already has! LOL

Hey Bratz Fans!

Amazon.de, the German branch of Amazon, has listed several of this fall’s Bratz and Bratzillaz products! While most of the products listed have been previously announced, the listings provide new information that was previously unconfirmed. You can view all of the listings here.

Perhaps the most exciting of them all is a new winter-themed line called Pink Winter World! This line, previously misinterpreted as “Pink Water World”, has been known of for about a week or two, though this is the first legitimate confirmation of the line, and also lists previously-unknown information! Amazon.de has listings up for a Yasmin, Cloe, and Meygan doll. We’re a bit concerned that “Closmin” may be back in action, but it is a possibility that Sasha is in the line as well, since she’s rarely sold overseas. According to the listings, the dolls will each include two outfits – one for their winter sports, and a second for a ski lodge party, in addition to a doll-sized cup of cocoa, and a keychain for you! This reminds us a lot of Wintertime Wonderland from 2003 and 2004, which also included two outfits (and for the same functions at that!), doll-sized cocoa, and keychains for you! We’re hoping these girls aren’t too “pinked out” though, since that’s not a very Bratzy look, if you know what we mean 😉

Also listed are the Crystalicious, Chic Mystique, and Boutique lines. While the Crystalicious and Chic Mystique listings don’t reveal anything new, the Boutique listings confirm that each doll will include two complete fashions (And yes, that means TWO pairs of shoes!), a mannequin whose stand also works for the dolls, sales counters, cash registers, scanners with real chirping sound effects, bracelets, earrings, sunglasses, tote bags, purses, shopping bags, and shoe boxes – all neatly packed in a box which doubles as a character-specific boutique (Yasmin Chic & Co, Angel Cloe & Co, L.O.V.E. Jade, and Sasha’s isn’t listed)

And in the world of Bratzillaz, there are listings for the dolls, pets, playset, secret message pad, fashion packs, and accessory packs! We now know that the Secret Message Pad will be a writing pad of some sort, which includes an “invisible ink” pen and a “magic light” which will reveal whatever you write (We can assume the light will be a black light), and that the set will double as a picture frame! While the listings for the fashion and accessory packs don’t reveal any specific details, the titles are now confirmed. The fashion packs are called “Romantic Spell”, “Midnight Magic”, “Blood Red Charm”, “True Blue Style”, and “Changed-Up Chic”. We’re guessing Romantic Spell will be Jade’s, Midnight Magic will be Yasmina’s, Blood Red Charm will be Sashabella’s, True Blue Style will be Meygana’s, and Changed-Up Chic will be Cloetta’s. The accessory packs are called “Wicked Night Out”, “Charmed Life”, and “Academy Style”. We think Charmed Life will include lots of shiny bling for the witches, Academy Style will include some school-themed accessories for the girls’ school of magic and fashion, and Wicked Night Out will include fun “dressy” accessories like clips, headbands, etc.

We’re so excited to see everything! Let’s hope we can see some photos soon 😀

Hey Bratz Fans!

Another big update on the Bratz Crystalicious dolls today! Thanks to the Chinese auction site, taobao, where many factory workers post factory rejects and stolen goods, we are the FIRST to share these clear photos of the Crystalicious dolls exactly as we’ll be getting them, boxed and all! You can check out the full listing here.

All four Bratz Crystalicious dolls! L-R: Sasha, Jade, Cloe, and Yasmin!

The first thing to strike us was the similarity to the Funk ‘n Glow packaging from this spring, which sadly means this line has no artwork that we know of. On the bright side though, we do appreciate the more modern and elegant vibe of this style of packaging, and the cut-out cards on the back are very cute too!

The back of all four Bratz Crystalicious boxes! L-R: Sasha, Jade, Cloe, and Yasmin

As you can see in the above photo, we were correct about the promo picture we saw earlier being for Cloe’s box 😉 Now, onto the dolls!

Bratz Crystalicious Yasmin

Yasmin is absolutely stunning in her sequined dress! We are very happy to see that the dolls and their outfits not only match their promo photos, but that the flowers on their dresses are actually removable too! Yasmin’s makeup is fantastic too. We love that they’re switching up their palettes a lot, and Yasmin really pops in her bubblegum pink lipstick! The glitter eyeshadow is still present as well, thankfully. She looks to have gone back to her original, lighter shade of brown hair, with some cute golden blonde highlights mixed in as well! It looks like this line will include a clip-in hair extension made of iridescent tinsel and “crystal” beads, as well as nine little gems, and six “flower” gems which can be used on their dresses, as well as their hair! We’re going to take a shot in the dark and guess that these girls will also include ten rubber bands like the Featherageous girls too, though we won’t know for sure until they hit stores 🙂

Bratz Crystalicious Cloe

Cloe is absolutely breath-taking! Her sizzlin’ silver mini dress is easily our favorite, with its modern design and sparkling sequins all over. Her face is just as flawless too, and like Yasmin, she’s upped the “drama” a bit (We all know how dramatic Cloe is, LOL) in her palette, with very bright reddish pink lips and glittery silver eyeshadow! Her hair color looks to be her signature platinum, though not quite as light as usual, probably for fall 😉

Bratz Crystalicious Sasha

Sasha is most definitely another favorite too – We love our Bunny Boo with bangs and braids! 😉 Her dress is also a fave, for its realistic look and gorgeous fall colors that look superb on Sasha. The coloring in her makeup is somewhat similar to that of her Catz doll, though her actual eye color is different, and her lips are a bit more orangey, plus she’s got teeth! Lately Sasha’s been experimenting with her hair color a bit, and Crystalicious sees her rockin’ a nice blend of black and brown, with some red mixed in!

Bratz Crystalicious Jade

Jade looks pretty in purple for Crystalicious! Kool Kat’s purrrfect party dress definitely gives us some retro vibes with its fun ruffles and metallic material. Her makeup isn’t quite as bold as the others, but Jade still manages to hold her own in the line with her pink lips and pretty violet eyeshadow! She also has her signature bangs, though her hair actually looks to be pure black again in this line, which is refreshing after having so many releases where her hair is a blend of black and darker browns 🙂

So, those are the new Crystalicious Bratz for this fall! You can expect them in stores during the summer, and probably pretty soon actually since they’re already on taobao 😉

Hey Bratz Fans!

It’s that time of the year again – time for all of this fall’s Bratz releases to start leaking out! We’ve seen Strut it!, 4/5 of the Bratzillaz, Chic Mystique, Boutique, and now in stunning high resolution, Crystalicious! A promo photo, presumably the one to be used on the back of Crystalicious Cloe’s box (judging by the background edited to match her outfit, as well as the emphasis placed on her name and her doll), was leaked today on a Russian Bratz website, and brought to our attention by our awesome friend, Anya S! We’ll have more information on the photo’s source soon, but for now – let’s gush!

L-R: Sasha, Jade, Cloe, and Yasmin!

As you  know from our previous report on the fall 2012 Bratz lines, Crystalicious is one of two hairplay lines for fall. The main feature appears to be “crystal” hair extensions, which will attach with one of the Bratz’ signature star clips. Much like Featherageous, it appears the extensions can also be removed from their clips, and braided into the dolls’ hair, which you can see on Sasha and Yasmin in the above promo shot. Also included are stick-on crystals, and what look to be tinsel extensions.Also in the style of Featherageous, the dolls appear to have floor-length saran hair as well, which is always a plus! All four dolls are dressed in very cute, shimmery party dresses, covered in sequins and flowers. Earlier this month, the Bratz facebook page shared a close-up of the girls’ dresses and everything looks super detailed! Also worth noting is the return of glittery eyeshadow to the Bratz’ faces. If you click the image above, you’ll see the full-sized photo for a more detailed view. Can’t wait!
