Now I will state when Bratz came out I did not like them at all.
Among doll lines they are still not a favorite. However Several of these I just got, are growing on me.
I joined a Bratz forum to try and learn more. Only to find it has been inactive for about 8 months! I guess the cool factor has worn off on them.
However I did find 2 names.
I have Cloe. She is one I am learning to like. Her hat is too fun. Plus, I like the boots. Though mine would need to be flats… or flatz???
I have also identified Masquerade Penn, as a vampire. There might be a shirt for him in the bag of clothes. I haven’t looked closely at it yet.
Another one I really am beginning to like, I call the hippie chic. It is her hair! LOL I LOVE the long hair. She is taller than the rest by a good margin. I found one like her on ebay but she was wearing pink sneakers not these boots. I don’t know which is really hers. She was the only doll with out shoes and these were the only shoes so this is what she got! The ebay person did not give her a name either.*** While looking up the orange haired doll, I did find a picture of Meygan, in this outfit… It was only a head shot, but at least I know who she is…
Next on my getting to like it list is this lass. I can’t find her anywhere, definitively. I have found several that look really close… I haven’t gone over any of these with my comb yet. I like her because she is just clean and simple.
The rest of these, maybe they will grow on me too eventually.
I do like how simple this one is. No bling, just a girl in her jeans. When I was young, I might have even pulled this look together myself. I loved my jeans, boots and tees!
This one… oh my word! That hair! I love it but it is going to be a challenge for sure!
This one too is simple. I like the color combinations and there isn’t any blaring bling with her.
This one I am sure is Bratz. I think it is Megyan. The hair color and the boots are right but I can’t find her in this outfit. This doll is also different in that her legs and arms are articulated. I too love the RED hair!
This one too is getting to me. Such soft colors in her face. While the lips on the Bratz bug me, I have to admit the make up is beautiful. I like the colors in her clothes too. I admit here and now, those pictures women take pooching out their lips, drive me batty. Ladies, it is NOT at all attractive! Then again I don’t like those open mouth poses either…
These next 4 may or may not be Bratz. They have the same stamps on their backs from MGM but they only loosely resemble the Bratz…
This one is shorter than the others and is not peg legged. I read there was a Bratz kids line of shorter dolls… Perhaps she is one of those…
This one does have the peg leg with… feet attached…
These last 2, now that I look at them I wonder.
This one somehow reminds me of an anime character. She really is cute. She also reminds me of my 2nd dil, my youngest’s girl. This doll on Amazon looks like her. The hair isn’t just the right color, but they have on also called Lottie with this color hair…
This one… I was thinking maybe a MH doll. She doesn’t fit though. She has the Bratz style eyes. She is peg legged. However looking over the only Bratz site with character pictures, I can’t find her. The spider and cobweb is more MH-ish…
Now, perhaps it was the packaging they came in. I remember the whole look being one of… I don’t know, when I saw the dolls in the store I thought of them as disgruntled, discontented. I also thought the make up was over the top. However seeing these, no packaging and sitting side by side with my EAH, Barbie and so on, their make up is not so glaring. Actually, compared with several of the outfits for Barbie, these dolls are modest!
Though to be honest, a lot of the modern Barbie stuff, I just don’t like.
So what do you think? Bratz yea or nay?
Next time, I am delving into the Sparkle Girlz! These are prettier than the ones I bought new!
