The Freaky Fusion Hybrids are popping up at Toys R Us stores all over and I had to grab a set! I wasn’t excited for these dolls until I saw owner photos popping up on tumblr. I’ve been checking my TRU daily, and they were there this morning! I’ll break these reviews up by doll so that each post isn’t massive. My first pick is Bonita Femur ~ the daughter of the Mothman (Father) and the Skeleton (Mother).
I will post all of their diaries, later. I’m still trying to get a good clear scan of them.
Bonita has this adorable face with purple eyes and little buggy pupils. I chose this doll because she looked cute, although some people might claim I picked a “wonky” doll. Sometimes wonky is a good thing.
Bonita has lips that resemble both Skelita and the Skeleton CAM, an obvious wink to her mother’s scaritage.
Bonita’s head features no ears. She has two antennae on the top of her head. She does not have any earrings.
The one thing that isn’t so obvious about Bonita is that she has HAIR! I mean tons of it! Look at this! I don’t think Catty Noir is the character with the longest hair, now! Unlike Catty, Bonita’s hair is very good quality! There was little shedding the first time I brushed it; the hair has a super soft quality, as well.
Bonita’s back features two holes (one is under her dress in this shot) that allows her wings to attach. I never really got a good “click” when I put them back in, but they’ve never fallen out, so I assume all is well.
One thing to note about these wings is that they are made from a single piece of pink plastic (except the yellow inserts). That black section is painted, and my doll has a slight defect in that the black paint isn’t perfect on the bottom of one of the wings. It isn’t a huge deal to me, but picky collectors may want to add that to their checklist before they purchase a Bonita doll.
Bonita wears a long-sleeve short dress with butterfly/moths on the top. The sleeves have a oval print that I imagine is supposed to look like holes from Bonita chewing on her clothes (it’s a moth thing). Her skirt is a pink mesh with the same print from the top below. It is uneven and not hemmed, but like many Monster High clothes, it doesn’t appear to be in danger of fraying.
Bonita’s belt is bright yellow with a moth on it. The actual belt looks like a spine to me.
Bonita’s shoes are awesome! They are bright yellow and allow you to see her little toes underneath. They are not just heels, they are also raised platforms, which means she stands differently with and without them.
When holding Bonita, you notice that her torso makes noise when you touch it. I immediately assumed she would have a plastic piece like Skelita does. I was wrong. This plastic vest is attached to the doll with one strip of tape in the back. LOOK AT THIS THING!
But this is the picture you want. What does that beautiful body look like without anything covering it? She has a rib covering (but there is flesh underneath those ribs) She has a skeletal neck, arms, and hands. From her waist down, she is all furry moth, though. You can see how differently she stands here. Without the shoes to prop her up, the doll has to lean forward to balance against the longer wings.
Are you ready for some fun? Bonita is cute in her stock outfit, but I wanted this doll to play!
And this is the perfect outfit for her! (Kappi isn’t happy that I gave it away)
If you are going to redress your Bonita doll, remember that those wing attachments go down farther than a normal winged monster. You will need to adjust for that in her clothing.
And that is Bonita! Her personality in the diaries is nervous and anxious, but I hope you don’t have any anxiety about adding her to your collection! She is my favorite doll of the three hybrids, and that was a shock to me!
