Greetings everyone! Target is starting their resets and that means new things to review! Today I have for you the Monster High Minis Pets (I bought Lagoona with Neptuna) and two of the Ballerina dolls! Let’s get this review started! Continue reading
Greetings everyone! It’s been a long time since I’ve done a review, and most of that is just that life has been getting in the way. I have a TON of things to review and talk about, but I just haven’t had much chance or motivation to sit down and take photos, edit them, and write up a review. I know…. whine whine. Sorry. Anyways, you didn’t come here to hear me whine, let’s get to the review! I’ll post a little sneak peak of what else I’m working on at the end, so make sure you stay tuned!
But for now! Let’s look at some of the EAH Back to School dolls. I have for you today Holly, Meeshell, and Blondie!
Hey everyone! I know it’s been awhile, but I wanted to let you all know that some of our 3D models have been posted on Thingiverse for you to download! Since we aren’t able to keep up with the Etsy store like we would like, we thought we would share these files with anyone that wants them.
If you don’t have a 3D printer, you might want to check out your local library, because several are starting to have 3D Printers available. I think our local community college has some in its small business center. You might also want to search for something called a makerspace or a hackerspace. A makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school, library or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools.
Let me know if you download these models and print them! I’d love to hear from you and to see your work! Feel free to share using my name in your hashtag. #rayedelsol or @rayedelsol will get me on Instagram. Looking forward to hearing from you!!
So I posted a few days ago about this girl becoming available on Amazon, and thanks to Prime – HERE SHE IS! I’m going to warn you. I am extremely excited about new Ever After High, so this review is going to be biased. I LOVE HER!
The back of the box made me more happy than the front, though, I must admit. DO YOU SEE THAT ART! Those dolls have listings on Amazon! Meeshell, Holly, and Maddie are listed as unavailable right now, but with this doll coming out and seeing their art on the back gives me hope!
This doll features the smiling face of the new line. This is my first Apple with this face and I have to say that it’s adorable! Her eyeshadow is hardly noticeable in real life. It’s more reflective than the photos shows, too. She has bright red lips that are open in a smile.
Okay, so for me there are two major things I want in a doll: Articulation and great hair. AND O-M-G does this doll have great hair. Okay, so it looks like she just came out of the box right now, BUT IT IS SO SOFT! Like so soft! Heaven in hair form.
It was right around now when I noticed a problem. I tried to pose Apple with her hands on her hip and POP! Look what happened! Her arm just came out of its socket! What! It easily popped back in, but that startled me!!
So everyone is going to be quick to point out the similarities between this doll and the School Spirit doll. I wanted to take a minute to point out their differences. Many people who already have one will probably pass on this doll, but I am VERY glad to have the new doll.
The first major difference is the dolls themselves. The older doll has a very stern expression, whereas the new doll is all smiles. I like the lipstick on the old doll, but I always thought she looked annoyed at being forced into school spirit, which isn’t really in Apple’s character.
As for their accessories, this new Apple has a different crown and no earrings.
There are subtle differences in their outfits that makes me happy. First off, I HATED that yellow top on the older Apple’s dress. Like where did that color come from?! And I know that the purple tulle is supposed to tie the older doll in with the Raven doll from the set, but I never liked it. The new doll doesn’t have the gold ruffles on her jacket either. Their necklaces are the same, except for the coloring. The skirt print is different, too.
So that’s the doll. I think she is adorable and totally worth it. I think she is different enough for me to get her as a “gotta-catch-‘em-all” collector. But I can see the complaints that are going to come already….
The set also includes a table, massive book (The Storybook of Legends), glasses, and a laptop. The laptop is identical to the one sold with the fainting couch. The glasses are the exact same, except the ones with the fainting couch are more glossy, whereas this plastic is more flat/matte black.
You may remember that I tried to buy a smiling Apple White signature doll a long time ago when the “First Chapter” listing were originally found. I received an old face Apple that I sent back. Well…. now that I have this doll…
I could make that smiling signature Apple! I think this is how I’m going to keep her, actually. I really like this look for her. This doll is SO adorable! The playset may have recolored or reused pieces, but I’m actually not complaining. I could ALWAYS use more of those adorable glasses and the laptop!
So what do you think? Will you be getting her? Anxiously awaiting the new Back to School Dolls? I’m in love! I can’t wait for more things to start showing up! Don’t give up on us yet! I’m speaking to you Mattel and you my fellow collector! If you want this doll, just head on over to Amazon and add her to your cart! I’m super happy I did
YES! So I know that Mattel has WAY scaled back their Ever After High line. The rumors are floating around that Ever After High is completely done for. They weren’t shown at Toy Fair and no one has heard much about them. I’m really just crossing my fingers and praying to anybody that will listen to me that it isn’t true. I know there are no new dolls at Wal-Mart or Target, but please no. BUT! Amazon has some listings that aren’t available yet and one that became available yesterday:
Okay. I get it. She’s really just the School Spirit outfit with accessories and furniture that we’ve seen before. But I am so starved for new EAH that I bought her. She’s cute and I just really want more EAH right now.
I know that I reviewed the Epic Winter Blondie some time ago, and that I didn’t have the nicest things to say about her. But I’ve changed my mind and bought almost every doll from the Epic Winter line last weekend. I’ve also made myself a little list of all the EAH dolls I am missing and have slowly started building it back up. I blame watching the Epic Winter movie earlier this week. I’m kinda in love again. Kinda madly in love again with their little pancake faces and soft hair. Seriously, Epic Winter Ashlynn has the softest hair ever. And even with his molded on pants, Daring is a little cutie! I take back any negative thing I ever said. I love my Ever After High and I want it back!!!
