Amazon put the Thronecoming Briar Beauty doll and playset up for sale yesterday for $50. My husband recently purchased Amazon Prime for our household, so she was in my hands this afternoon! I will review the doll separately from the playset. (I’ve still got to figure out the best way to photograph this massive playset!)
Briar wears purple and pink eyeshadow. She has a beautiful pink lipstick. She also has a small star under her right (our left) eye. This pink is lighter than her lipstick, but matches her eyeshadow.
Briar wears earrings in hot pink. The earrings are mirror images of each other. They have unicorns on them with a carousel appearance.
Briar has pink and purple strands in the front of her hair. The rest of her hair is brown. She wears a top ponytail with a brown rubber band. She also has a brown rubber band holding her style down, which is actually very attractive.
Without the accessory, Briar’s dress is easier to see. The dress is one-piece with a plain pink top. The style of the dress is strapless, but the dress features clear straps to avoid any accidents while Briar gets her hexcellent party going. The skirt portion of the dress contains Briar’s signature thorns on a background of pink/purple/white. The skirt also features a small pink frill on the top.
Briar wears black gloves (painted arms) like her other Royal friends. She has two silver rose accessories that I suppose are supposed to act as glove toppers. These are NOT rubberbanded to her, unlike the other Royal Thronecoming dolls. Be careful not to lose them, as one of mine went flying across my porch when taking these photos!
Briar’s ring is terribly difficult to photograph, because it is terribly difficult to see in person! I’m almost certain this is supposed to be a unicorn, but the tiny scale makes it difficult to tell.
And that’s the Thronecoming Briar Beauty doll! I just had to photograph her today, and my desk is a mess. I hope you don’t mind the outdoor shots.
The doll and playset is currently $50 on Amazon, and I’ve seen reports that she will be $56.99 at Toys R Us.
While I think the doll+playset is worth this price, if you aren’t planning on keeping the playset, or aren’t interested in it, I’m not sure the doll is worth this price. The playset will go on sale at some point, and you should probably wait for that. If you are looking forward to both the doll and playset, then I would say the $50 is worth it.
