Fashion Royalty High Visibility Agnes Doll Review

Today we review the WClub Unveiling Event exclusive doll, High Visibility Agnes Von Weiss from Integrity Toys. When we first saw this doll we thought she was pretty, although we did not like the makeup for the lip as it is not going with the sculpt of the lip. But we still say “We can get her, she’s pretty”.  But boy oh boy when we received her and opened her box….ugh. The smell of mildew made us both gagged. We were so worried that she was covered in mold. But when we opened her up we didn’t see anything.

Now as you know we do the deboxing in the review so you will see and hear the shock of Elio’s voice when he notices the mold 9which is on the back of the dress). You will even notice Elio’s voice changing as he is highly allergic to mold. This now makes the 6th doll with mold that were released this year. The other 5 dolls are SDCC Jem 2014, the Wclub upgrade Jem/Countess, the Wclub upgrade Vanessa, the Victoire Roux Sous Les Tropiques, and the Fashion Royalty City Prowl Eugenia.

This dolls hair is not done well either. She barley have any hair rooted and the cut is atrocious.  We see why Integrity advised not to take the hair down, because it’s jacked up!!! There are plenty of dolls with a similar style that are fully rooted (or better rooted that this one). Plenty of doll collectors buy dolls to redress and restyle sow we should be able to take het hair down if we want.

Here’s the review:

We are very disappointed at Integrity Toys for releasing crap products. At this point we are really thinking about slowing down on collecting their dolls as it seems to be a ongoing them of issues with them lately. As these dolls cost over $100USD this is not what we paid for. We do NOT recommend anyone getting this doll as it is not worth the amount you will pay for it (Secondary Market as well).

So what are you thoughts on this doll? Did you have any issues with yours? Do you think she should have had her lip painted differently? Let us know in the comments below.

Fashion Royalty Faded Desert Kyori Sato Doll Review

We now take a look at the “Faded Desert” Kyori Sato form the new Integrity Toys “Urban Safari” theme collection. This doll is perfect! There really weren’t any cons to this doll. And get this…the box had Silica packs inside!! YES, you read right. This means Integrity toys are now placing the packs in the boxes to prevent mold from starting. This is great news considering the issues they had lately (5 dolls this year with mold). Now the other 3 (Natalia, Adele and Eugenia) did not have these packs and only Euguenia had the mold (only a little).

Now Kyori’s outfit is way better in person than the promo pics (which seems to be the ongoing theme with this collection). We really like her shoes, and the light blue and white skirt is very well made. The makeup screening for Kyori is perfect for her and really make her look Asian.

Here’s the review:

So what are you thoughts? DId you get Kyori? Would you have prefer her in a differnt outfit? Let us know in the comments below.

Fashion Royalty Vivid Encounter Adele Makeda Doll Review

Next we review the new Adele Makeda from the Integrity Toys “Urban Safari” theme collection. Nowwe must say that we did not have a Adele with this face scuplt but we gave in…well I (Mike) told Elio to get her because I saw she could be really pretty. And boy are we happy we did. Again (like Natalia and Eugenia) this doll looks so much better than the promo pictures. Her makeup is nice, her fabric Integrity Toys chose for the dress is perfect, we only would have liked it to have been a full length dress and the eyes to have been a differnet color, this is acpersonal preference of ours. The jewelry is ice as well, although it would have make more sense for the gems on the necklace to have been in the shape of leaves rather than stars. The major issue we have with this doll is the rooting…she’s bald in the middle of her head (ouch!!). We wanted to restyle her and to our surprise, no hair in the middle. Too bad she didn’t have a fully rooted head, but we still can restyle her hair.

Here’s Elio’s review:

So what do you think? Did you get Adele as well? Would you have changed anything about her? Let us know in the comments below.

Fashion Royalty Elusive Creature Natalia Fatale Doll Review

Today we review the new doll from Integrity Toys “Urban Safari” themed line called Elusive Creature Natalia. Now this doll is so much prettier in person than her promo pics. We really think they have outdone themselves with this doll. Her shoes are great and her blonde hair is very different form the normal shade of blonde Natalia has. So while we did not really like Natalia’s hat, it can be used for other collectors dolls (it fits the Barbie head sculpt just fine). Her overall look it very good and does stick to the theme Integrity Toys was going for. However some of the other dolls…not so much (yeah we’re talking about you Veronique!!)

Here’s the review:

We highly recommed this getting this doll and hope you all enjoy her as much as we did. So what are you thoughts? DO you like this doll? Who whould you like ot have seen in the collection? Let us know below.
