Hey Again Bratz Fans!
Even though we just barely made the announcement of this brand a few hours ago, we’ve already got an update! Target.com actually has quite a few products listed that are not as easy to get to! 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 🙂
Vi-and-Va Core Dolls
Roxxi: “Roxxi™ can be a bit of a klutz, but put on some music and she will suddenly become elegant and graceful with all kinds of dance moves, from ballet to hip-hop to salsa.
Roxxi™ is wearing her dancing shoes and outfit, ready to bust a move at any family gathering, sharing her talents as La Bailarina (The Dancer). Roxxi™ doll comes with her very own boom box radio to play her dancing tunes and a dance magazine, too!”
Valentina: ‘”I’m Valentina but everyone calls me Va.” Va is so neat and organized. She loves learning to cook from her mother and grandmothers. She’s already perfected some seriously awesome, savory family recipes, like empanadas.
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).”
A Deluxe Activity line, featuring only the title characters, “Vi and Va”, is also on the way. Check ’em out below.
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!
Listing for Vi-and-Va Birthday Celebration!
“Big sister, Vi, comes with her very own silver tiara, a gift box, and a purse, and little sister, Va, is wearing a gold tiara, a fur shrug, floral corsage, and purse. Both girls come with invitations to their sweet 15 and sweet 16 birthday party… and guess what!?! They are inviting you to come join in the family celebration!

And on the topic of the styling head, that is also something coming out!
Listing for Styling Head
“It’s Viviana’s™ sweet 16 and Valentina’s™ sweet 15 sister celebration birthday party and you’re invited! Join the celebration with their friends and family.
Now you can help Vi look party-perfect with sparkly gemstone earrings, a silver tiara, and you can style her hair with the bun tool and brush. Design her hair style (and yours to match!) in so many ways from a braid to a pony tail to a fun party up-do! You can get party ready too when you share her tiara and clip-on earrings! But her look isn’t complete until the amazing transformation of Vi’s make-up magically changes color with water, too!

So, now that we’ve got the bios for each character, as well as a look at what we can expect for the brand, what are your thoughts? Are Vi-and-Va your cup of tea? Let us know on facebook, twitter, or tumblr!

Hey Bratz Fans!
Thanks to our super-sleuthing abilities, we’ve tracked down the prototypes for some of this fall’s Bratz & Bratzillaz offerings – even some things that haven’t come out yet!
Keep in mind that everything pictured are EXTREMELY early prototypes and the new things shown here will either be very different or may not even come out at all! This is just to see for fun.
My Passion is actually almost identical to the final dolls! Jade’s changed the most, going from this amazing full-pink bob to her signature jet black with pink highlights. Yasmin’s bag also went from black to electric lime green 🙂
And here’s Action Heroez, who clearly have gone through several changes – including dropping Jade all-together in place of Shira, Phoebe, and Roxxi! While we ADORE these prototypes and would L.O.V.E. them to look like these, we aren’t too let down by the final dolls, since they’re so diferent! Love those funky sunglasses/hero masks.
Costume Bash’s fashions didn’t change too much, just a few cut details here and there. Overall, we aren’t bothered by the changes – though a Yasmin with full pink hair would be totally cool!
How freaky is it seeing Totally Polished on SHORT bodies?! And Cloe and Yasmin x2? LOL! Fashions didn’t really change at all except for Yasmin – love the princess heels and different tights!
OMG y’all, new shoe packs! No guarantee that these will come out, but we can hope so! There’s supposed to be three packs (We’re assuming each row is a pack; One boots, one ankle boots, one heels, and one sneakers) and we LOVE all the different colors and the mix of old and new molds!
And here are the protos for the fall 2013 Basic line!! Yasmin’s only major change is her fur, Jade’s only ditched her socks and arm-warmers (and glasses, but they look a little odd anyways :P), and Cloe’s changed the most, though we honestly prefer the refined look of her final doll! Love the leopard print though.
And now for Bratzillaz – TONS of stuff coming from the witches!
OMG how wicked CUTE are these Bratzillaz Mini Pets figures?! There are boy & girl versions of each one 🙂
Check out these witchy playsets! The grand Piano plays music and vibrats, and the bed and vanity can transform and “walk” – We aren’t too sure what that means LOL! But totally wicked nonetheless
You might remember this horse from our “Fall Preview” article – well now we’ve got a better look! The name of the line (or the horse – we aren’t entirely positive) is Crystal Ice Princess and this amazing horse has a bone structure that glows in the dark! As well as three color-change lights in side – totally wicked!
OMG a Bratzillaz car! Again, not guaranteed to come out, but we really hope so! This RC car has real working lights and transforms into a vanity for the Bratzillaz to use!
A better look at the Bratzillaz Back to Magic prototypes we revealed back in April! Victoria really didn’t change at all, Sashabella is a little interesting, as is Jade, and Meygana’s googly-eyed purse makes us LOL!
And here you can see the prototypes for the fall 2013 budget ‘Zillaz! Jade didn’t change much at all aside from articulation (But who didn’t see that coming anyways?), and Yasmina was dropped entirely! She looks wicked cute though 🙂
And the BEST for LAST, check out three of the Bratzillaz Witchy Band dolls! These are AMAZING, look at all those details!!! The final dolls, if they come out, obviously won’t be as insanely detailed for a playline price, but we really hope to see them come out and look pretty similar like Witchy Princess!! Just LOOK AT THEM!!! Agh, perfection ❤

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!
