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).”

Viviana: ‘”I’m Viviana but everyone calls me Vi.” Vi is spontaneous and easy going. She’s passionate about sharing her love of music, and she’s always ready to break out her guitar at family gatherings.

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).”

Listings for Viviana (Fashion Designer) and Valentina (Hair Stylist)

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!

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!
