So Amazon posted listings for three of the five Kuu Kuu Harajuku dolls on Tuesday night. The doll named G is the blonde doll, the Love doll has dark black hair in four curls, and the Angel doll has brown hair in pigtails. They’ve also posted the five fashion packs. I ended up purchasing all three dolls and two of the fashion packs. See below for photos and my full review:
First up is the G doll. These dolls are somehow related to Gwen Stefani, and I imagine that’s what the G is for. The other dolls have names like Baby, Love, Music, and Angel. G definitely stands out as the odd name in that group.
G has brown eyes with pink lower eyeshadow and gold glitter eyeshadow. Each doll has this heart detail in her eyes. G has a darker red lipstick. Her eyebrows are a soft brown. She has two-toned blonde hair with tinsel. She wears a black bow headband (okay, admit it. Now you know why I chose this doll. BOWS!)
Okay, these shoes are the weirdest. Her tiny little feet are pointed in a similar fashion to EAH or MH. But these boots almost remind you of Bratz boots. They kinda click into place when you put them on, too. Okay, so now that you’ve seen all of her clothes…. what about the doll herself? How does she compare to say… an Ever After High doll?
I should have taken measurements on the doll herself. Here she stands in all of her glory! She has the standard 11 points of articulation – neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, and knees. I’m honestly loving her little body and huge head. But then, I collect Pullips, so this proportion system isn’t new to me..
G stands just a little shorter than an EAH doll. Her hips appear smaller and her hands are in a different position. Her feet are totally different. Her legs are shorter…. but wait. Isn’t that how EAH dolls get their varied heights?
So Lizzie refused to strip down for us, but you can see that G stands almost shoulder-to-shoulder with the shorter EAH dolls. Her torso is still very different, as are her calves and feet, but you can see that height-wise she is right there. This also lets you see just how huge her head is. Some people thought EAH had big heads? Ha!
Anyways… the dress is cute… and so are the leg warmers… now if only we got some cute orange boots… They didn’t even change the color! You could have done the same boots but in orange and I wouldn’t have felt ripped off as much!!
This pack came with a bow headband (any guesses as to why I picked this pack?) that has a unicorn on it, a dress with jacket, unicorns boots with plastic attached socks, bracelets, a unicorn purse/keychain, and four more charms.
I’ll end this review here and post the other two dolls on their own page. What do you think of G and the Kuu Kuu Harajuku dolls so far? Is this a line you think you’ll get into? Or will you be passing on Mattel’s latest attempt to get your money?
