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!

NEW Novi Stars for 2014!

October 10, 2014

Hey Bratz – and Novi Stars – Fans!

We’ve got some totally cosmic, and quite surprising news: There are in fact brand new Novi Stars dolls for 2014! You all might remember earlier this year, when we confirmed that the brand (As well as Bratzillaz) would be taking an “international holiday” of sorts during 2014, and not a peep about them has been heard since! Until now, that is. Four brand new characters in the Supernovas and Novi Stars Invasion lines have been spotted on several Russian shopping sites! Check ’em out below.

This is definitely out-of-this-world and unexpected! We’re happy to see MGA is keeping their word on the Novis, and it gives us hope for the ‘Zillaz, too! These four new invaders are all really cute and cleverly-designed (Though we must admit the budget seems considerably lower than when they were a full brand) and should they ever hit North America, we’ll be picking them up! As for where anyone else can, it’s hard to say! They’ve only been seen on Russian websites so far, but it’s totally possible they could be going to the UK and other countries as well. We’ll be sure to ask our peeps at MGA and give you all the scoop when we get it!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Remember the “Holiday Funk n’ Glow” dolls that were announced on QVC earlier this year? Well now, thanks to our pal Domenic, we’ve got photos of them all boxed up from taobao! Check ’em out below

NEW Bratz Holiday Glow dolls, L-R: Yasmin, Cloe, Jade! Note the misspelling of “what” on Yasmin’s box! LOL (Click to view full-size)

We think this line is really cute, and might be good for making a fashionably festive Bratz Christmas display in your home! It is interesting to see that the Holiday Glow dolls don’t include the Holospex glasses, which were one of the main features of this year’s Funk n’ Glow line. So what are your thoughts on these winter beauties? Let us know on the forum, tweet us @BratzBoulevard, or “Like” our facebook page at facebook.com/BratzBoulevard and let us know there!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Tonight’s update is on the ever-changing sleepwear line for fall, now confirmed as simply Pajama Party. Our friend Drek found the three dolls on taobao, and after a bit of searching, we came upon the link ourselves! Check out the photos below.

The final dolls, all boxed up! L-R: Yasmin, Cloe, and Jade. Click to view full size.

We are beyond delighted to see all of the fantastic detailing on each girls’ pajamas! It’s also worth noting that their original gimmick (Bags to Sleeping bags) has been replaced with the inclusion of cute personalized satin pillows. In all honesty though, we find ourselves wishing these outfits were sold as fashion packs rather than dolls. One of the main things that excited us about this line upon seeing the promos, was their faces. Jade’s in particular; Had they done their original faces it would have been the first time Jade’s had an open mouth since 2009! Instead the final dolls appear to have faces borrowed from this spring’s Featherageous line, and nylon hair as well – which was a bit of a shock considering all but three lines for this fall were known to have nylon prior to tonight’s find! Overall though, the line does boast some of the best PJ’s we’ve seen on the Bratz girls in years so all is not lost! Fingers crossed the girls all have their adorable fluffy slippers too! 😉

The back of the box is a bit of a surprise too! Notice the lack of “trading card” with the girl’s info that appears on the majority of this fall’s Bratz products. This makes us wonder if this line will actually be less than $14.99 after all! They’ve downgraded the hair and faces, removed the gimmick, and the box is clearly different from the others this fall… Keep it locked, we’ll try and get an update soon! But for now, sound off in the forum and let us know what you think!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Tonight’s update is on the sleepwear line we previously posted about. In the past, we’ve been referring to it as “Satin Sleepover”, but as it turns out, the line might actually be the third edition of Sweet Dreamz; Pajama Party! We’ve checked the Russian shopping website where the photos were spotted, and according to rough translation, the line is called “Sweet Dreams” and each girl will include a bag that transforms into a sleeping bag! And to re-cap what was previously known – this is set to be one of the (USD)$14.99 ranges for fall. It is unknown right now whether or not Sasha will be making an appearance at the slumber party, but we wouldn’t doubt it 😉 Let us know what you all think in the forum!

Hey Bratz Fans!

So, we’ve all seen the new Bratz Strut it! dolls by now, this fall’s basic line, and Sasha has been in stores for a few weeks, but now we’ve got photos of the other five girls in their boxes! Check ’em out.

Top L-R: Meygan and Fianna
Bottom L-R: Yasmin, Cloe, and Jade!
Click the photo to view in full size.

We love that each girl is getting her own color scheme for her “runway” in the box! While we still can see how having the dolls half exposed in the box could pose a problem, we’ll just have to hope that we can all find nice ones – ‘cuz these dolls are stunning! You can read our full report on their outfits a few pages back 😉

Hey Bratz Fans!

Sorry to post again just minutes after our last article, but we are proud to announce that we are the FIRST to share photos of the new Bratz Pink Winter Dream dolls’ prototypes, and a photo of Cloe in her box! Check our last post for photos of the dolls as they appear on shelves. 🙂

On the left are the three prototypes, and on the right is Cloe all wrapped up in her box! (Click photo for detailed view)

As you can all see, Cloe and Meygan thankfully don’t differ too greatly from prototype to production, but Yasmin is a whole other story! Her prototype sports a face very similar to the “Wild Life Safari” screening that MGA used on her a lot in 2009 (Spring Break Yasmin, Wild Life Yasmin, etc.) and she actually has an entirely new shoe mold as well! This line must be the sequel to Platinum Shimmerz, as a prototype from that line featured a still-unreleased boot mold too. We think the boots used on her prototype are simply amazing, and we hope MGA will incorporate it into another release somehow – it’s too detailed to go unused!

And Cloe’s box confirms that this fall’s lines will all have packaging in the style of this spring’s Funk ‘n Glow/3D Dance ‘n Glo line, with a box made almost entirely of colored cellophane, no interesting logos, and no artwork. This isn’t something that we’d like to see become a trend, so hopefully MGA will understand our concern and revert back to their older, more innovative designs next year. 🙂
