Hey Bratz Fans & BZs!

Alex here with an exclusive first look at the latest addition to Bratzillaz Academy, sparkly sea witch Fianna Fins! A friend of ours at MGA was sweet enough to send me a sampling of this spring’s lines, and Miss Fins was included!

In the box, she looked just as I had expected. While I was over-the-moon to be the first person to own her, I wasn’t surprised by her appearance or anything in-box (After all, we exclusively unveiled her a while back here at BratzBoulevard.com!). I was happy to finally “get to know her” via her bio on the box though!

How cute is Ripple? Despite Fianna not being in stores yet, this little guy has actually been spotted on shelves already, so keep an eye out! Click to view full-size, or check out these pix and more on my flickr!

It’s not mentioned on the back of her box, but one of Fianna’s weather-changing spells is

“Moon of night,
Wind of play,
Bratzacadabra!
Send the clouds away!”

She can be heard saying it in the Bratzillaz webisode; “Midnight Beach“.

After the obligatory boxed photo session, you can believe I practically ripped this witch out of her box! I already thought she looked simply stunning, but once she was deboxed, I had fallen full head-over-snap-on-heels in love! Just check out those eyes!

As you can see, she is just breath-takingly beautiful! I love the glittery makeup all over, and again, THOSE EYES! Oh my gosh, why they would sell her with her glasses on I’ll never understand, but at least it was a wicked sweet surprise for me as I opened her up! Her glasses are a new mold, obviously fin-inspired, and her hair is 100% silky saran that goes past her knees! The front is lightly crimped, and most of the back is just straight.

Of course, I totally love her outfit too!

On top is a cute strapless top in a shimmery blue scaley print, with a coral starfish in the center. On the bottom is a long “mermaid” skirt made from the same material with the same starfish on the side of her waist. Under that is a second part to her skirt, that actually comes off and doubles as her cape! Note that her panties are actually painted in a shimmery blue too so you can remove her skirtĀ altogetherĀ and she’ll be ready for some beach fun in a cute blue bikini! There are really quite a few fashion combinations you can make with just this one doll. I didn’t photograph all of them, but you can see them in my video review of her (and the new 2nd assortment Sashabella with saran hair!) below

So what are your thoughts on Fianna Fins? Personally, I’m loving her, and totally recommend her the the most out of the entire Midnight Beach line (which says a lot, because the line as a whole is pretty amazing!). She’s actually my current fave Bratzillaz doll! Feel free to sound off on my video review’s comments section, as well as on our official facebook page, and on twitter @BratzBoulevard!

Happy New Year Bratz Fans!

Today we’ve got some major updates, thanks to our flickr friend meike! She has shared promo photos for both the new Spring 2013 Bratz Totally Polished and the Bratz Mermaids dolls! Check ’em out below, and see more of them at Smythstoys.com!

Bratz Totally Polished is honestly so much better than even we were expecting! We love the trendy casual, boho chic look that the girlz are sporting, while still remaining true to their own unique senses of style! Note that the “promo” Cloe is from this line, and that Meygan and Fianna are in the mix as well! We are totally loving the big mix of fabrics and patterns in each doll’s fashion, and how they’re all very different from one another yet look great all together anyways! Each doll includes a set of press-on nails “For You!” that match their outfits.

Official Description: “Style is at your fingertips with Bratz Totally Polished! Match your favorite dolls fashion with a one-of-a-kind nail look! Each girl wears trendy new fashions and comes with adhesive reusable nails for the girls that match each Bratz outfit.”

Bratz Mysterious Mermaids! As you can see, this line is actually where that mysterious Jade we revealed is from! Who would have thought those “dragon wing” details were actually supposed to represent fins? LOL! We are absolutely in love with this line! It’s very fantasy, while also very Bratz and fashion-forward. Cloe is totally the stand-out with her amazing top and silver lips! Each doll actually has the ability to transform from a mermaid to a human Bratz girl, with the help of some magnets and the Bratz’ signature snap-on feet (which are VERY well covered in this line! Love those NEW shoe molds!)

Official Description: “The Bratz are adding a splash of glam to the deep blue sea as Mysterious Mermaids. Each Bratz doll magically transforms from a girl to a mermaid! Special magnetic mermaid fins are removable and transform into two different outfits! Pop on the heels(included) for a completely new look!”

Hey Bratz Fans!

Thanks to our friend Connor once again for sharing these with us, we’ve got the first boxed photos of Bratzillaz newbie, Fianna Fins!

She is just breath-takingly beautiful! We are loving the glitter makeup she’s rockin’, and her artwork is too cool! We’re very curious about what her bikini looks like too, as her skirt is much fuller than the other Midnight Beach witches’. Hopefully she’ll be in stores very soon!

Hey Bratz Fans!

It’s that special time of year, when info on the spring Bratz lines leaks out! So far, we’ve got four new Bratz lines confirmed by Target’s computer system: Bratz Totally Polished, Bratz Mermaidz, Bratz Bahama Beach, and Bratz In The Wild!

Totally Polished sounds like it could be the next makeover line, possibly along the lines of Totally Tattoo’d, just with nail polish or stick-on nails! Target’s price is $16.99, so it won’t be as big as Featherageous or All Glammed Up were.

Bratz Mermaidz is pretty easy to picture. We’re hoping that they have loooong, colorful hair and really exotic looking tails/fashions! It’s possible that a transforming feature will be included, but we’re actually hoping that there are no real gimmicks attached to this line. Target’s price is $24.99, so this looks to be one of the bigger lines for next spring!

Bratz Bahama Beach is the beach line fans have been begging for! We love that MGA’s giving the girlz a location for their beach this time, and hopefully the Bahamas will have some influence on the look of the whole line. Target’s price is $12.99, which is surprisingly low for a beach line! We’re not sure if these prices are MGA’s SRPs, or prices set by Target themselves, so the line could go a few different ways. If $12.99 is Target’s set price for them, it’s likely that this line will be a basic collection, along the lines of Strut it!, Style it!, etc. If $12.99 is the SRP set by MGA, it’s possible that we’ll be seeing two swimsuits, and maybe even a few little accessories with each doll! We so hope it’s the latter of the two, but we’ll have to wait and see!

Bratz In The Wild totally sounds like one of the Bratz’ famous safari-themed lines! If you all remember, we reported on a possible new “Bratz Wild Things” line coming next year a few months back. Could this be the same thing? The tag we found has it for $22.99, and Target’s price says $24.99, which are very close, so it’s pretty likely! The price has us really psyched, because it suggests that this line will be continuing the tradition of MGA’s “Wild” lines coming with two fashions and a decent amount of accessories too! We can’t wait to see this line!

Now, what about Bratzillaz, the wicked teen witch cousins of the Bratz? Target also has a listing in their computers for “Bratzillaz Hat Ma”, which is…interesting to say the least. Our guess is that we’ll be seeing a “hat maker”, probably a set for Bratzillaz fans to make their own witch hats. This kind of stuff usually doesn’t interest us that much, but it will be cool to see how this comes out. Target’s price is $34.99, so it sounds like it will be a pretty big deal…

What are all of your predictions? Are you as stoked as we are for the new Bratz? Let us know on twitter (@BratzBoulevard), facebook (facebook.com/BratzBoulevard), or on the forum at BratzBoulevard.com!
