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!

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!

She looks AWESOME!! Despite the slight let down with My Passion, we’re still definitely getting majorly hyped about the Heroez. Just look at how cool and colorful Cloe looks!! We’re going to keep our fingers crossed that the seller posts the actual doll soon – and maybe the others too?

Hey Bratz Fans!

Things have been moving pretty slowly in terms of leaks this year, right? We’ve only seen two photos of anything new for the Bratz, and nothing has shown up on our favorite site, taobao! Until now! A seller has listed both the Bratz Twisty Styles FFMs; Cloe & Yasmin! These are new for fall 2013, and like the Twisty Styles dolls, feature totally new faces! Check ’em out below…

How CUTE are they with the new Tokyo a Go-Go-inspired faces?! We are totally loving Yasmin with her frosted lips and dark blonde hair! Also included with the FFMs are yarn “dread lock” extensions for the Bratz and you, though those weren’t included in these listings. Let’s hope some new dolls show up next!

MGA Fall 2013 Preview!

April 20, 2013

Hey Bratz, Bratzillaz, Moxie Girlz, and Lalaloopsy fans!

Wondering what the extended intro is about? Well we’ve got a MAJOR scoop covering all of the aforementioned brands today! We’ve got photos of the prototypes for new Bratz, new Bratzillaz, new Moxie Girlz, and even new Lalaloopsy all hitting stores for fall!! Check them all out below!

*Please keep in mind the photos featured are early prototypes and everything you see has likely been changed a LOT in development!*

Of course, we’ll be starting this post off with our fave girlz – the Bratz! Unfortunately, the ONLY photo is for Twisty Styles, but hey – that’s even more than we were hoping for LOL!

WOW!! How awesome are they?! Each girl comes with awesome “dread-like” extensions to rock! We also LOVE the mixed up hair colors here, though we’re not sure if that’s a feature they’ll have in production, as the artwork is consideably different!

And next is the girlz’ wicked, witchy, magical cousins – the Bratzillaz! Luckily, we’ve got pix of Bratzillaz Back 2 Magic, and the new Witchy Glam Princess line as well!

First up is Back 2 Magic, the “2nd edition” Bratzillaz line! We’re assuming the top photo is for that line, as Sashabella, Meygana, Jade, and the two new witches are seen. We aren’t sure who it is in the bottom pic, but they are wicked glam for sure! We are SO loving the pets, too!

And now here is the line we’ve all been waiting for – Witchy Glam Princess!! We aren’t sure who is who, and quite frankly, we don’t care! All three of these witches are just absolutely enchanting!! Honestly, we can’t even choose a favorite between the three! Their fashions are totally regal and way over-the-top, and the bird cage accessories are wicked adorbs!

And next is a doll line we honestly didn’t think would have a fall 2013 line, but they do, and they’re looking cute as ever! Here are the two new fall Moxie Girlz lines!

And next up is the Sew Magical, Sew Cute… Lalaloopsy! In all honesty, we haven’t followed this line too closely, so excuse us if we make some mistakes, but we know how strong of a fanbase the Lalas have and know that you would just love to see some of what’s comin’ up!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Alex here, and if you haven’t already heard, the first wave of Bratzillaz Switch-A-Witch is in stores now in both the United States and Canada! Of course I had to run out and grab them as soon as I heard the news. Check ’em out below!

The Bratzillaz Switch-A-Witch wave 1 double pack next to Mattel's Monster High Create-A-Monser starter pack. Click to view full-size!

First, I had to take a photo in the store of the BZ pack next to a Monster High Create-A-Monster set, and even to my surprise, they’re even more different from each other than previously though! The main similarity was the packaging, but even that’s hardly similar. Bratzillaz’ box has a more “warm”, redder color scheme, and features frames on the background, as well as a fun and curvy border on the front, keeping it in with the branding for the rest of the Bratzillaz products. Monster High went for a bright lime green background, with black rectangles corresponding to the placement of each piece. And speaking of placement, even that’s pretty different. Sure the arms are all together in both sets, but where else would they place them…? If you want to get technical, you could easily say Monster High AND Bratzillaz are copying the original “Build-A-Doll”, Betty Spaghetty! Packaging aside, the obvious difference is that the Bratzillaz double pack includes far more pieces, including not only what’s necessary to build both dolls, but to fully dress them head-to-toe as well. While the Create-A-Monster sets includes two basic dresses, one pair of shoes, one real-hair wig, and one molded-hair wig, Bratzillaz keep their witches covered in two tops, two skirts, two pairs of shoes, two saran wigs, two pairs of earrings, two bracelets, two hats, and two capes – one of which doubles as a belt! With the Bratzillaz set being $24.99, and the Monster High set at $19.99, it means you can technically get two fully-articulated, saran-haired, glass-eyes BZ dolls for $12.50 (cheaper than the basic “Core” assortment out now, which lacks articulation, saran hair, and glass eyes!) or one fully-dressed-but-not-accessorized, fully-articulated Monster High ghoul with either kenekalon or molded hair, and one without shoes for about $10 each, which is cheaper than the $14.99+ they’d force you to pay as stand-alone dolls, but still at least double what they’re worth based on quality! Just some facts for consumers to consider, now let’s get wicked! 😉

Sorry for the terrible photo, I was rushing to get them open LOL! Click to view full-size!

Here’s both sets from the first wave in their boxes! It’s a bit hard to tell, but each torso piece is actually a different mold! The leg molds are actually different on each witch too, surprisingly. Don’t worry, all three can share fashions with each other as well as with the other Bratzillaz too. Personally, I love that MGA is giving us this unexpected variety! Also, I already mentioned that the 2-pack is $24.99, but the single pack is $14.99 🙂

Here’s everything that both sets come with! The double pack includes: 2 heads, 2 torsos (with the waist joint!), 4 upper legs, 4 lower legs, 4 upper arms, 4 lower arms, 4 hands, 2 saran wigs, 2 pairs of shoes, 2 pairs of earrings, 2 bracelets, 2 hats, 2 capes (one of which doubles as a belt, as I mentioned above!), 2 tops, 2 bottoms, one brush, and instructions. Note that the background of the box makes an AMAZING backdrop for photos too!

The single pack includes: 1 head, 1 torso (with the waist joint!), 2 upper legs, 2 lower legs, 2 upper arms, 2 lower arms, 2 hands, 1 saran wig, 1 pair of shoes, 1 pair of earrings, 1 hat, 1 cape, 1 top, 1 bottom, 1 brush, and instructions.

And now that you’ve seen everything they come with, we can put them together and brew up three complete wicked glam witches!

The three combos I've made so far! Keep in mind that I used pieces from both sets, so you'd need to buy both in order to create these specifically. Click to view full-size!

Aren’t they amazing? MGA really did an outstanding job on this line. The black and white witch is so bold and edgy, and definitely not something you’d typically see on a stroll down the playline doll aisle! The witch in pink and green is another real cutie. I love her winged eye makeup, and of course that ‘fro is to die for! The single pack face is just amazing as well. When MGA does glass eyes, they do them RIGHT! She’s sporting the Bratzillaz’ world-famous glitter eyes in silver!

Here's a close-up of the black and white combination. The white lashes and RED lips are truly magical! Click to view full-size, or check her out at flickr.com/alexbabs

Hey Bratz Fans!

2013 is already shaping up to be a big year for our girlz! To reflect on the fresh new re-branding with some #realbratz style, MGA is in the process of updating Bratz.com! Not a complete overhaul, but definitely a stylin’ new look! Check out the changes so far and keep it locked for more at Bratz.com!

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!
