Surprise! Meet Vi-and-Va!

January 4, 2015

Hey Bratz Fans! Happy New Year!

"Viviana™ and Valentina™ are Vi and Va™! Two sisters and best friends with their cousins, Felicia™ and Roxxi™. Every day is an adventure and a reason to celebrate the bond of family and friendship."

“Viviana™ and Valentina™ are Vi and Va™! Two sisters and best friends with their cousins, Felicia™ and Roxxi™. Every day is an adventure and a reason to celebrate the bond of family and friendship.”

Now, while we obviously can’t talk about this year’s Bratz yet, as you can guess from the above logo,we do have some other MGA news to share! Just yesterday, a mysterious new display popped up at a Target in Houston, Texas, featuring some VERY mysterious and totally MGA-style artwork! (Check out the original spotting here on flickr!) We asked one of our peeps at MGA, but before we could even get an answer, our awesome friend, Teahoshi, got the full scoop! The new brand is called “Vi-and-Va”, and appears to be kind of like a new, more family-focused, Bratz Kidz-styled line? At least the artwork is very similar! Check out their cute illustration below!

Their names, Felicia, Viviana, Valentina, and Roxxi, should sound pretty familiar to any Bratz fan, as 3/4 of them are from the girlz themselves! Name recycling isn’t anything new for MGA, but it is interesting that they chose such memorable ones! Regardless, they are pretty cute! Teahoshi also shared the news that they have listings on Target.com! Check out the photos, and links to the listings, below 🙂

Va is so neat and organized. She loves learning to cook from her mother and grandmothers. She’s already perfected some seriously awesome, savory family recipes, like empanadas.

And one very CUTE accessory pack! Notice that fab art on the package?!

It’s Viviana’s™ sweet 16 and Valentina’s™ sweet 15 sister celebration birthday party and you’re invited to get dressed up and join the fun!

Dress up like Vi with a fluffy faux fur shawl shrug and a sparkly gold tiara and come join her family celebration! She even comes with her very own floral corsage!

Coordinates with the Vi-and-Va Birthday Celebration dolls (sold separately)

Okay, we have to admit, we’re a little surprised that these are teens! But nonetheless, they are pretty cute, and we’re guessing these are geared more towards a younger market anyways. We like the Latin-influenced vibe and the friends-and-family angle is a fun twist as well! You can follow the brand as they develop on their official website, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, and more than likely, their facebook and YouTube channels soon as well!

What are your thoughts? Let us know on our own facebook, twitter, or tumblr!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Today we’ve got a spooky find for fans of the Bratzillaz – a NEW Witchy Makeover Yasmina Clairvoya set! Check out the photos below.

You can make Glam Get Wicked with the Witchy Makeover styling torsos! Here's Yasmina Clairvoya. Click (twice!) to view full-size.

Looks to us like these are made entirely out of the Bratz Funky Fashion Makeover styling torso molds, which were introduced with Bratz Rock Angelz in 2005. It’s very cool to see them with the Bratzillaz’ face though, they almost give us some “Pretty ‘N’ Punk” screening vibes, don’t you think? It appears that each set includes glow-in-the-dark nail polish, as well as several character-specific styling accessories that you can share with your fave wicked witch! Very cool!

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!”

Hey Bratz Fans!

If you weren’t already crazy excited for next year’s Bratz, prepare to fall head over snap-on heels! Today the Bratz’ facebook page has unveiled the first official photo of one of next year’s dolls! No info on what line she’s from, but we’re not complaining! Check out Cloe’s fierce new look below.

Everything about this teaser is just perfection in our eyes! From the bold-yet-clean Impact font to the sassy pose and fiercely funkalish pose our “Angel” is rockin’! This is truly what the Bratz are all about; Edge & attitude without trying too hard. This could so easily be a promo for a real fashion ad campaign! We’ve definitely got even higher hopes for spring now – hopefully the Bratz will be giving all the girlz this teaser treatment on facebook this week!

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!

You might remember when we exclusively revealed most of this fall’s Bratz artwork, way back in the beginning of the summer. Well we’ve done it again with today’s update! Remember the artwork of the Bratz girlz rockin’ their 2nd Boutique fashions used in Bratz Fashion Boutique the videogame, and the new Bratz Style Starz app? Now we’ve got a few of the full-sized, high quality, full-body versions of these illustrations! Check ’em out below

L-R: Jade in her 2nd Boutique dress, Sasha sans shopping bags with some brown contacts and hot red lipstick, Yasmin in her 2nd Boutique dress, and Yas again, this time without her shopping bags, and a more natural look without her cute green contacts! Click to view full-size!

Don’t you all just love when MGA makes more than one set of art for a line? Totally brings us back to 2002, when every doll had a ton of artwork made just for her! We really dig Jade’s Kool Kat couture the most, but how about all of you? Let us know on the forum, tweet us @BratzBoulevard, and “Like” us on facebook to let us know there!
