|Poor Viviana! Multiple markdowns.|
Va, the younger sister, is very into hair. This seems to be a tie-in to her accessories rather than just MGA getting lazy with characterization.
|YOU WILL DO HAIR PLAY OR ELSE.|
|This hair is never, ever moving, even if the box is transported through an eighth dimension.|
|I'm free... but there are so. many. Bratz here.|
|Vi does acoustic versions of mariachi songs.|
Needless to say, I was curious about size in relation to other big-headed MGA products. Here are the girls with Moxie Girlz Sofia on the left and my articulated Bratz on the right.
|Sofia wants to talk music; Emanuelle wants to talk hair.|
The other purpose of the trip was that Target had marked down the clothing packs to $2.98. I got three. Let's start with the one I liked least, which was apparently meant for Va. (No, I don't know why it comes with a doll.)
|Ruffly. Very ruffly.|
|It's not my fault, Darya. Really! I'm so sorry!|
|This is less bad, 'k? At least Miranda likes hers...|
|Is absolutely everything in your world fouffy, Vi?|
I kept thinking that Valentina really looks like she ought to be the youngest sister of Shira, rather than Yasmin, so I tried out that hypothesis.
|Sure, play with hair, little one, but let's work on your multiplication tables.|
|L-R: Articulated Bratz, taller Bratz, Moxie Girlz, Vi, Va, original Bratz.|
Front: Bratz Babiez.
|Maybe you want pants, Va?|
|It's okay, Va. Darya will never be allowed to baby sit us.|
Seriously, though, in their limited way, I think they're adorable, and for under $10 each, the limitations seem less important. I'd love to know why they failed -- if there's a region where Latina dolls should go over well, Arizona is it. But they didn't. But I have mine, and they get to join the extended family of Yasmins, though Darya will, indeed, never be allowed to baby sit them.
