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?! *_*

Top L-R: Party 2009 Yasmin, Unreleased Magic Hair Fall 09 Jade, Pampered Petz Jade. Bottom L-R: Party 2009 Sasha, Unreleased Magic Hair Fall 09 Yasmin, Pampered Petz Yasmin. Click to view full size!

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!

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 🙂

Their descriptions appear to be for “Vi” and “Va”‘s fashions, so check out the descriptions on those below.

“I’m Valentina but everyone calls me Va.”

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.

Va’s outfit makes her party perfect! This festive floral dress is what she plans to wear to her next family event when she is serving up more of her grandmother’s family recopies. Also, includes are worry doll friend.

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!

It’s been exactly one month since our last post. Again, we are so sorry for the lack of news! But all of that doesn’t matter today, because it’s a very special occasion for Bratz fans everywhere! 13 years ago today, the world was introduced to “The Girls With a Passion for Fashion!” – Yasmin, Cloe, Sasha, and Jade – and things have never been the same since! So here’s to the Bratz Pack! They may be on hiatus during 2014, but we can assure you there are big things cooking for their comeback next fall, so in the meantime, let’s celebrate!

 

Happy Birthday Bratz! And Bratz fans, don’t forget to post your fab b-day wishes on the girlz’ facebook page!

Happy Birthday Bratz 2014

Hey Bratz Fans!

Even more new 2014 Bratz dolls have been showing up on taobao lately!! Today’s finds include Project Bratz Yasmin, as well as new photos of the previously-spotted Cloe & Jade!

Note that Yasmin appears to have the same brand new screening as the other 2014 Yas from taobao, but in a much more colorful makeup palette. Could these stunning new screenings be the girlz’ next batch of “signature faces”? We sure hope so! Her dress might look familiar to some, as it has been floating around taobao for quite a while now, only with a pink and green checkerboard pattern instead of the new psychedellic wavey print which we’re assuming is the final look. And speaking of final looks, note that Cloe’s dress is now pink, purple and silver rather than gold! In all honesty, we kind of prefer gold, but the design is cute regardless 🙂

The listing for Yas also included this nice close-up of her dress. We are totally loving the black white and yellow color scheme and totally bold, graphic print!!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Today we’ve got even more new 2014 Bratz to share from taobao! One is a gorgeous new Cloe, presumably from the Project line (She’s wearing one of the dresses we posted about before), and the other is another listing for the also-gorgeous new Yasmin found the other day! Check out the pix below 🙂

How totally ADORABLE is the new Cloe screening?! Much like the new Jade’s face, we get some major Slumber Party screening vibes from her! She also looks to have a face very similar to those used on the one-of-a-kind dolls MGA sent a fan earlier this year – Love it! And the dress looks amazing on her too! We love the super-girly color scheme with the very edgy design 🙂 And of course we have seen this new Yasmin before, but here is a new photo! This should confirm that this outfit is in fact her’s.

OMG! How amazing is she?!??! We are LOVING her new face (Notice that they finally fixed the “bloody” lip issue people have been complaining about) and her crazy edgy blonde and red hair is gorgeous!!! We aren’t sure if this is her outfit or not, but the striped dress is totally cute! Huge thank you to our bestie Nik for sharing this taobao find with us!
