I was so excited to see the Project MC2 (MC-squared) dolls at my Toys R Us today! I know that it is Bratz release day, so I was anxious to see all of them, but more excited to find that my TRU had a fresh case of these gals! Money is super tight right now because we are in the final stretch of saving for our house (SO CLOSE!), so I couldn’t buy all four. (Retail at TRU: $24.99) I did manage to come home with Adrienne Attoms. My good friend Veni Vidi Dolli on flickr ended up purchasing the other three dolls. You can see her review of them on her flickr.
This is Adrienne.
I didn’t photograph the box, because I was too excited to get to the doll…. and kinda tore it to pieces. Adrienne describes herself as “pretty & brilliant!” The back of the box reads “People say girls are made from a pinch of sugar and spice but I, Adrienne Attoms, have a more complex recipe. Following in my abuela’s footsteps, I am a culinary chemist; science is so delicious! My family recently moved here from Spain for my diplomat father’s job. I LOVE rescuing animals and hosting dinner parties.”
This is Adrienne’s face without the glasses. I think she looks adorable both ways! Look at those beautiful brown inset eyes! And those rooted lashes! I love her full lips with their light pink gloss and pink cheeks.
Arienne wears no earrings. Her profile is super adorable!
You can also see her (less than adorable) sewn hair. These dolls come with their hair sewn into the box. Ugh! I hate that! It’s such a pain to debox.
You know hair is important to me. Adrienne has long NICE hair! Yes! I was so worried this would be dry. There are spots where it is a little hard, but that’s mostly where it was sewn to the box. I LOVE her hair. That’s one checkbox we can check. Hair: Check!
Note: My husband wants you to know that you should never have long flowy hair like this in the science lab. You should pull it back into a ponytail so as not to endanger yourself or others.
Ugh. Okay. I had to have something to complain about. Her sweater is sewn to her dress and it left these nice… threads in an… interesting spot. Those weren’t so hard to remove, but now there are little holes where they were.
Each of these dolls comes with some kind of experiment or STEM task. Okay, nerd alert. I LOVE THIS! Adrienne is the least impressive (for me) because all she has is a plastic volcano and a pipette. The instructions that come in the box detail how to make the volcano explode (it’s a simple baking soda/vinegar reaction) Not nearly as cool as the lava lamp or glow stick.
I am IN LOVE with the idea of a STEM line of dolls! You know I’m a super nerd, so this is right up my alley! I can’t wait to add the other three gals to my collection! What do you think? Will you be adding any of these to your collection?
