Ever After High ~ Cerise Hood Spring Unsprung

Greetings everyone! I hope your holidays are going well and that you aren’t too overwhelmed by all of the dolly goodness that has been hitting our shelves. The new Ever After High line Spring Unsprung has hit Targets, Toys R Us, and Amazon stores near you! I ordered this Cerise Hood from Amazon because I couldn’t wait to get her! I’m hoping to get the other dolls for Christmas :)

Without further delay, let’s get to this review!

Cerise Hood Spring Unsprung
Cerise wears dark red eyeshadow and deep red lipstick. You can see that my doll’s right eye has lost some paint on the bottom. She came out of the box like this. This defect is not major to me, as I only notice it when I am looking for it, but be aware that defects like this do occur.

So which Cerise Hood are you getting? Cerise Hood has (at least) two VERY different facial screenings depending on where the doll was made. THIS doll was made in Indonesia, and has a face similar to the first Cerise Hood doll that came out in the United States. Here are some comparisons:

Phew! That’s a lot of Cerise Hood faces! And they are all so slightly different. My favorite is the 2.0 Made in China version, but that’s just me.

Cerise wears a (plastic) crown of flowers and what looks like branches with berries. She has a purple streak to go with her usual white streak. The bookmark that comes with her really doesn’t mention why the dolls have this new hair color, but each of the Spring Unsprung dolls have a new hair color streaked into their hair.

That flower crown is attached to her head on either side with these plastic tabs that go into her head. These differ from the normal tab in that they have spherical ends. They are more attractive than the usual tabs, so if you wanted to leave them in to ensure you don’t lose the piece, it doesn’t distract from the overall aesthetics.

Another thing to note in this photo is Cerise’s Hood. It will not cover that plastic flower crown, but still looks attractive in this way.

Cerise’s Hood allows for her twist-braided hair to come through the back. Cerise continues her white and purple streak through the back of her hair and into her braid.

Cerise wears matching silver branch earrings. If she were a nautical themed girl, I would think these were coral.

Cerise wears a plastic shoulder accessory.

Here, you can see it better here. It features a black chain in the front and red leaves/berries on the shoulders. It detaches in the back for easy removal.

Cerise wears a white and black plaid overcoat.

The overcoat clasps in the front with one plastic snap. It has the hood sewn on to it and the red skirt-like piece as well.

This is all one piece.

Cerise wears a black belt (well, it is two black belts but acts as a single piece)

Cerise wears one silver bracelet that looks like branches. (Silver? And wolves? Isn’t that a bad combination?)

Her ring is also a silver branch.

Under that overcoat, Cerise wears a strapless black minidress that closes in the back with velcro.

My favorite thing about this doll are these tights!! Looks how awesome they are! Purple and red flowers, black branches, and a white background. I love them! They are full footless tights (going all the way up and ending at the ankle)

Cerise’s boots are black with white flowers up the shin. I am not a huge fan of these boots. Those white flowers just look like a big white blob. They contain little detailing and I almost wish they hadn’t painted them at all. It just looks like someone threw paint at her leg.

Cerise carries a long-strap purse with black leaves/flowers on the top and a brown under. This brown part will fall off, so be careful.

The Spring Unsprung dolls come will little rings for a child to wear. This one won’t go over my second knuckle.

And that’s Spring Unsprung Cerise Hood! The story behind this line is a Spring Fair(est) and Lizzie Hearts has designed all of the girls’ outfits. I didn’t know Lizzie was a designer until this line. Her Wonderlandiful style can definitely be seen, though, as all of the dolls from this line have VERY busy outfits! Cerise was the least busy of them all, which may be why she was the first I fell in love with. This doll is absolutely beautiful and a must-have for ever Ever After High collection! The doll comes with the mentioned accessories, a stand, and a brush. She retails for $24.99 and will make an excellent addition to your collection!

Until next chapter, have a happily ever after :)

  1. Have you heard any chatter about SU Cerise being on the standard hight body? I just recently purchased her SU and she is actually shorter than my other Cerise dolls. The one I purchased is Indonesian if that’s makes a difference.

      1. Okay thanks. I reinspected my doll and it appears I have a factory error. My Cerise is on a Briar body as the skin tone doesn’t match my other Cerise dolls but does match my Briars. This stinks, there are far too many factors involved in buying EAH dolls, eye wonk,the right amount of colored streaks, the right pattern on the fabric and now the right body. I don’t want to through the process of buying another one lol. Sorry for the rant :).

  2. My Getting Fairest Briar had the same paint defect on her eye. Luckily it was confined to her iris though, and since both her eyes and skintone are brownish it’s barely noticeable. :)

    Re:Cerise/Briar factory error – it sounds like you should contact Mattel. They should send you a replacement.
