Malucia Doll Review


When I first saw this doll, I thought this was an Ever After High fakie. When I found out it was an official Mattel doll, I had to check her out. How close to an Ever After High doll is she?

Check out my full review:

Malucia Doll
Malucia is the antagonist (bad guy) in the next Barbie movie (Titled Barbie and the Secret Door). Look at this sweet face. Do you think she could be a bad guy?
Malucia has pink and purple hair pulled to the side in adorable pigtails. The hair is very high quality. It is super soft, like kanekalon. She wears a pink crown headband, but the headband portion is well hidden in her hair. She has purple eyes with some pink that isn’t so easily seen in photos.

Her hair seems rooted well enough. I haven’t taken the ponytails down to see just how specifically the rooting pattern is. (I forgot to pull that pesky tab out. Sorry!)

Malucia’s dress had purple sleeves. These sleeves are already showing signs of wear. There are loose threads all along the edges. The bodice of the dress has a psychedelic flower print. Her belt is neon pink and is sewn to her sides.

LOOK AT THIS SKIRT! Does that not scream Magic Girl anime to you? Now, you know I love bows, but this! I love it! The dress starts out pink and transitions to purple and then blue. Have I mentioned how much I love this skirt?!

Here you can see the back of the dress. It is all one piece and fits her rather loosely. You can also barely see the loose threads coming from the velcro section. I’m not used to this lack of detail. Also, notice her super cute shoes?!

Here, let me show you those cute shoes! They are mirror images of each other. Both shoes feature three flowers and a butterfly on the back.

Malucia has this magical wand. From what I’ve read, Malucia doesn’t have any magical powers, so she uses this wand to steal magic from everyone in her land. It has an attachment for her hand that actually works!

Okay, so how does she compare to an Ever After High doll?

Malucia Doll
Malucia is shorter than a Madeline Hatter doll. She has five points of articulation – neck, shoulders, and hips.

She has a figure very similar to a little girl with a small bust and her torso does not narrow into a tiny waist. And look! She has a cute bow on her panties!

Malucia’s feet are very strange in shape. I don’t really have words for how strange they look, especially compared to Maddie’s feet.

Malucia’s head is also smaller than Maddie’s. She is a little bit lighter skin tone than Maddie, but I think she is close enough that a body transfer might be possible. I prefer the articulation of an EAH doll, so I will be changing her head over to a Madeline Hatter doll. Check back later to see Dr. Franken-sol’s experiment. Mwhahahahaha!

Ahem. So how will an Ever After High doll look in Malucia’s outfit? Will she get to keep that cute dress?

Malucia Doll
Look! Maddie fits into Malucia’s dress! And shoes!

Maddie fits into this dress better than the little doll does! The velcro closes completely and the dress is very flattering on Maddie.

Maddie can also hold the magic scepter/wand. I think this will work…. *insert more evil laughter*

And that’s the Malucia doll. I’ll post again if I decide to make her an Ever After High character.

Did you notice the photos in this review are a little *different*? I purchased a lightbox earlier this week, and it came in today. These are the first photos that I’ve taken using that box. I know that I still need some work in positioning my lights and editing them, but what do you think? Do you like them?

  1. Nice review! I’ve been wanting to see this doll in comparison with an EAH doll for a while, shes so much smaller then Maddie it’s almost hard to believe! The pics look good but I think you need a little more light.

  2. So cute!! I can’t wait to see her on Maddie’s body!! I think I’ll be getting her too – but definitely re-bodying her :D
