Looks like MGA has some big plans for this brand during the spring. Fashion packs, multipacks, a styling head, and more! Check it all out below 🙂

Va is dressed perfectly for playing hostess with her festive dress, serving up delicious family favorites. Va comes with a tray of homemade empanadas and a recipe book of her grandmother’s famous cultural recipes to help show her talents as La Chef (The Cook).”

Vi is wearing a comfy, laid back outfit that shows her musical style, ready to perform! Vi is always in-tune with her funky blue guitar and music sheets to help showcase her talents as La Cantante (The Singer).”

Felicia: “Felicia™ sometimes finds it hard to focus, but then, out of nowhere, she’ll have a creative explosion and come up with a genius idea for her next artistic masterpiece.

Felicia™ is dressed for creativity in a stylish jacket and colorful leggings. Felicia™ doll comes with a paint box, paint tray, and brush will help her create her next colorful canvas as La Artista (The Artist).”

Viviana: “Vi loves creating art, even if it’s on her own clothes! Help Vi create a wearable masterpiece with an outfit you can design over and over again! Color it with a marker and stamp roller, or add stylish stickers. Now you can become Vi’s fashion designer! It’s so easy!

You can decorate Vi’s white tunic with 2 easy-to-use stamp rollers and an inkpad. Use the marker and stickers to add extra festive fun to her outfit! It’s so easy to do again and again if you just wash with soap and warm water to remove the design to start all over! Includes 10+ pieces”

Valentina: “Va loves to entertain, and changing her hairstyle helps her get into the festive mood. Whether it’s using colored chalk, styling with beautiful ribbons and flowers, or brushing her hair for a silky shine, she always finds new ways to shine as a Hair Stylist. Style and accessorize Va’s hair and yours too, so that you both always look ready to join in any family celebration. It’s so easy!

Just thread floral ribbons and clip in Va’s hair and add colored hair chalk for more festive fun! When you are done, just wash with soap and warm water to remove the hair chalk to do it again and again. You can do this on your own hair, too! Includes 10+ pieces!”

Also in store for everyone is a Vi-and-Va 2-Pack, which features the sisters celebrating their Sweet 16 and Quinceañera. We think it’s a really cute idea and a fun way to blend American and Latin-American cultures!

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 🙂

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 a slow news year for us, so we’re sorry for the lack of Bratz updates! But we finally do have something cool to share about our favorite Girls With a Passion for Fashion – We got our hands on the official prototypes and inspiration boards for this year’s international exclusive My Passion Wave 2 Yasmin and Meygan dolls! Check ’em out below 🙂

How seriously stunning are these two?! Luckily (Well for those of you who live in the few places these were sold!) the finished dolls don’t differ too much – Meygan’s accessories actually got a little more detailed, taking some clear inspiration from the makeup case shown in her mood board. One thing we’re extremely curious about is “Indie Song Writer Felicia“! Yes, you’re reading that right, Pretty Princess was going to be a brand new Felicia! To be honest, we’re so relieved that didn’t end up happening. Can you imagine the agony of never being able to own her?! Nonetheless, it’s good to know she’s still being considered by MGA and we would totally LOVE to see the earliest prototype for her as Fe.

So what are your thoughts?! Comment below, or let us know on facebook or twitter!

Hey Bratz Fans!

****6/23/14 UPDATE!****
We have received confirmation from MGA that our theory was in fact correct! The “Bratz Classicz” title is NOT just a one-off release, but will actually be an umbrella title used to cover all existing Bratz media – The movies & TV episodes! Hooray!

As we’re sure you all remember, a few months back, the Bratz took to their official facebook to ask the fans what they would like to be the title of an upcoming Bratz TV series box set! Of course, everybody was jumping for joy – this would mark the first ever box set of the Bratz TV series to ever be released in the US, and was a definite major step in the right direction for the Bratz’ marketing! Now, a little bit later, a new Bratz DVD box set has popped up at Walmart stores very unexpectedly, using the winning title: “Bratz Classicz”! However it is not at all what anyone was expecting… Check out the cover below, found and shared on instagram by the amazing littlemissnoname!

Hm… Unless this is the first in a series of DVDs under the title, we’re honestly disappointed! The Bratz have already released box sets of their movies – and ones that made more sense at that (Bratz Go To Paris is included, but not Rock Angelz…?). And that aside, the packaging looks a little random and not nearly as iconic or retrospective as many fans were hoping based on the title. The stars and gradient backgrounds are borrowed from 2010’s branding, while the “art” is from the Passion 4 Fashion Diamondz DVD cover, and the logo and impact font are all from last year! We’re seriously hoping this is just one release in an upcoming series of “Bratz Classicz”, perhaps as a one-off release just for Walmart (Note that it’s an exclusive, and the surprisingly low price for a box set). You can trust that we’ll be asking our peeps at MGA for the full story! So…

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.
