Hey Bratz Fans!

Remember our last update, about some of the new lines for spring? Well we’ve tracked down a few more amazon listings and got the deets! Nothing on the “Garden Party” dolls (Though a friend at MGA has told us that they’re “really beautiful”!) but we do have a much better idea of what “Project Bratz” is, plus the listing for My Passion wave 2 Yasmin, the singer-songwriter! Check out the links for yourself below

“Bratz Project Dolls”: Cloe, Jade, Sasha

Despite our early predictions of a totally hot new Head Gamez-style line, the Project line appears to be more of an actual D-I-Y inspired segment! According to the amazon listings:

  • “Each comes with duct tape fashions; duct tape headband or purse a tape dispenser; (3) rolls of tape (each girl has her own prints)
  • 15″ of elastic cord to create accessories, like headbands and jewelry
  • A hole punch with different cutout shapes; a brush; and an instruction booklet
  • Will create How-To videos for YouTube and other social media outlets

Bratz girls are leaders, game changers and best friends. Capitalizing on the success of Project Runway, Etsy and DIYs, we’re bringing creativity to the world of Bratz.”

Wow, definitely not what we were expecting at all! We have to admit that’s kind of a let-down, but there are no pix yet, so we’ll see how this turns out!

  • The Bratz girls are showing their passions through everything they do
  • Yasmin is a singer-songwriter
  • Includes 3-5 play pieces to go with each of their passion

Bratz girls are leaders, game changers and best friends. They motivate and support each other to think outside the box, to unleash their passion and to create their own paths. This segment reminds girls that team work is so important and having hobbies is totally cool.”

We are totally psyched to see how Yas looks in her new career!
BUT WAIT, there’s more!! We also want to give the heads up that we will be making a very big, exclusive announcement very soon regarding Bratz 2014! We don’t want to give away too much, but we can say that it might come as a shock to some. Overall, we think it’s a very good thing though!

Hey Bratz Fans!

It’s that time of year again! Time for those fabulous bargain Bratz to start hitting shelves… in Canada! You all might be familiar with the $5 basic dolls that are released each year as a Black Friday deal for the USA, and an early treat for Canada. They’re Walmart exclusives, and always seem to be released in Canada before they hit the USA.

Anyway, they’ll reach the USA eventually, but for now all the Canadians out there (including berrybread) are super lucky!

Here are some pics!

As you can see, there are two options of Cloe, Yasmin, and Meygan. We totally love the new spin on some of our favourite fashions from past lines. For instance, Meygan’s printed version of “Trend it!” Sasha’s dress is SO cool!

Which ones are you going to get your hands on?

Hey Bratz & Novi Stars Fans!

Sorry for not posting in a little bit – there just hasn’t been much news for Bratz or Bratzillaz recently! But another MGA doll brand, Novi Stars, has been getting a lot of buzz lately in the community after a rumor that they would be cancelled next year hit the net. While there’s been plenty of speculation about their cancellation, we wanted to get the full scoop, so we asked one of our great friends on the Novi Stars team about it!

Novi Logo

It was confirmed that at the moment, there definitely will not be any new Novi Stars products for spring 2014, but that the fall 2013 line is still going to store shelves (Many of the new dolls have actually been out for a little while now!) and it was also made clear to us that Novi as a whole is not “cancelled” or “discontinued” just yet, and that if sales pick up dramatically this fall, it’s VERY likely that we’ll see more from them in the future! Our cosmic pal also added  that “Things change from week to week or even day to day [at MGA]. Hardly anything is ever set in stone.” and reminded us that “It’s all about sales numbers. If people don’t buy, stores don’t order new product. They won’t take a risk on something with a small interest group”

So that’s the official word on Novi Stars at the moment! If you’re after anything from the new fall lines, we would definitely recommend grabbing them while you can, and be sure to spread the word to all the Novi fans you know. If sales go up a lot, the brand can easily be saved! We know there are a lot of older collectors who like the Novi Stars, so we did suggest to our friend on Team Novi that they could possibly rebrand as something more geared towards an older audience with lower production, and that idea has been forwarded to the head of the Novis. Keep your fingers (and antennae) crossed!

8/20/13 UPDATE!!!

Not only is the Novi Stars brand NOT discontinued just yet, but MGA is actually in the process of bringing them to more international markets! They’re hoping to achieve a similar success as the Moxie Girlz, which according to MGA sell “really well internationally and just okay in the US.” Let’s hope the Novis really blast off overseas! 🙂

UPDATE #2!!!

Our great friend Maurice has made a petition to keep the Novi Stars alive! Even though we now know that the brand isn’t discontinued, a petition could be great positive reinforcement in addition to a spike in sales! Sign it here 🙂

Hey Bratz Fans!

How stunning do these look?! Finally a step towards collectors edition Bratz! Yasmin’s dress looks gorgeous and very detailed, and it actually reminds us a bit of Holiday Katia’s, but in pink! Cloe in the back really steals the spotlight for us though – she looks SO amazing in red! We can’t wait to see how she looks IRL. We’re loving the box design and the inclusion of stands too!

Thanks for sharing these with us, CheeChee!
