MIM: Make It Mine Doll Line Review

Hey everyone today we take a look at a new doll line: M.i.M. (Make it Mine). This line is great and can give American Girl dolls a run for their money. The dolls are poseable and have great outfits. They even have a Mermaid and Centaur attachment for extra fantasy fun!

Fashion Royalty – W Club Exclusive Rare Appearance Dania Doll Review

Hey everyone, today we review the 2014 W Club Exclusive Fashion Royalty “Rare Appearance” Dania Zarr. This doll is simply amazing. Her clothes are well made and contains a zipper in the back, the shoes are stunning and the jewelry is perfect.

What’s the bad thing about this doll? Her eyebrows…if they are that thick, then they should be more arched. But that is a personal preference, so it’s really not a bad thing. Also, Dania should have had an extra pair of hands that are not painted on gloves.

Here’s the review:

So what are your thoughts? Did you get Dania? Would you have preferred her with a different hair color or skin tone? Let us know.

Fashion Royalty ITBE Audacious Doll Review

Next we review the new girl on the block…Finley Prince. She is one of the 6 dolls form the new Integrity Toys ITBE dolls. She was a lottery doll, so the only was to get a chance to win her was to be a member of the Wu Club. She’s limited to less than 500 and have the “FR Black” skin tone.

Now when Integrity Toys first previewed her, we were excited…a brand new face sculpt! And a pretty one as well. She kind of favors the Vanessa 3.0 sculpt, and that’s fine with us lol. Her corset is laced in the back, which is a VERY nice touch to this doll. And the purple color really compliments this doll, way to go Integrity!

We do hope they use this doll again in the near future as it is definitely a keeper. She should be in a tan to honey skin tones, we think it just works better! This doll is worth getting and we do recommend you all to try and obtain her.

Here’s the review:

So what are you thoughts? Do you like the new sculpt? What skin tone would you have preferred to see her in? Let us know in the comments.

Fashion Royalty ITBE My Desire Isha Doll Review

Today we take a look at the new ITBE “My Desire” doll from Integrity Toys. This doll uses the Isha sculpt, which is a fan favorite. This is the first time she is in the “A-tone”Ā skin tone. She was a lottery doll, so the only was to get a chance to win her was to be a member of the Wu Club. She’s limited to less than 500.

We were on the fence about this doll when we first saw her, as we never seen this sculpt with the skin tone. But seeing her in person….wow! She is a stunning doll. The doll looks SO much better than the promo pics, which is always welcome here. Her Carmel hair color works well with the skin tone and makeup. The blue corset sets the mood along with her blue eyes. She is by far the prettiest doll we have seen in such a while from Integrity Toys. This doll is totally worth the secondary market price. We only advise you all to make sure you are paying a reasonable price for her.

Here’s the review:

So what are your thoughts? Did you get Isha? Are you planning on getting her? What doll would you have liked to have seen in this collection. Let us know in the comments.

Lady of the White Woods Barbie Review

Today we review the second doll inĀ Barbie Collector’s Faraway Forest series: Lady of the White Woods. This doll is a highly anticipated doll in the series and unfortunately she does not meet the standard that the firstĀ doll (Faraway Forest Elf) has set.Ā  The quality of the dress is just cheap and not worth the $100.00. The quality of the dress is as cheap as the “Birthday Wishes 2015 Barbie”.Ā The makeup screeningĀ is also different from the prototype which looks very tired and sad.

The dolls shoes are very well done and we would like to see more things like this on other fantasy dolls. The crown and gauntlets are cheaply done. It’s sad to say…but this doll is a complete pass! She’s not worth it and a sad addition to this new series that many were happy to have. No we must worry if Mattel can redeem this with the third (and possibly final) doll in the series or if it’s going to just go downhill from here.

Here’s the review:

So what are your thoughts? Did you order the doll? Was this a passĀ for you? Did you hopeĀ for a different doll in that was on the map? Let us know in the comments below?

Dynamite Girls: Love Revolution – Free Spirit Jett Doll Review

Now we will talk about Jett. She is so cute and innocent looking in this collection. We do love her shoes and accessories…well her overall style is just nice lol. Integrity Toys made 400 of this doll so grab her if you can.

Here’s the review:

Now we redressed Jett and restyled her hair to our liking and collection. Here’s the link to our Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/phoenixboy83/

Now do you think she is nice? Did you get it or was she a pass for you? Let us know your thoughts.

Fan Bingbing Barbie Doll Review

Today we review the Asian Market Exclusive Barbie Collector Doll….Fan Bingbing! This is China’s superstar made into a 12 inch doll by Mattel. Fan BIngbing has done it all, from acting, modeling and even singing, so why shouldn’t Mattel make a doll of her?

Fan is stunning in the recreation of the Dragon Robe mermaid gown she wore on the red carpet by the fashion designer Laurence Xu . This doll does not come with any jewelry, which would have been nice for her to have the same jewelry she was wearing in real life. But other than that…this doll is perfect.

Here’s Elio’s review:

So what are you thoughts, do you think the doll should have come with the jewelry that Fan was wearing on the red carpet? Or is she fine the way she is? Do you think Mattel should have released the doll worldwide? What other Asian celebrity dolls you think Mattel should make (Michelle Yeoh….*fingers crossed*) Let us know you thoughts below.

Please note this doll is only sold in the Asian market. the only way to get her is to buy her on eBay or if you know someone on Asia. So happy hunting! šŸ™‚

Jem and the Holograms: Sheila “Jetta” Burns Doll Review

So now we review Jetta, the last addition to the Misfits. This doll is really pretty in the face. I love her instrument that she comes with. And it looks like it was painted with black chrome! Now I must say out of all 3 dolls released in this wave, she was my least favorite. Her hair was a mess (see it in the video) and her clothes feel really cheap! Once I restyle her hair, she will be perfect!

Here’s the video

So what do you think? How did your Jetta’s hair come, was it as messy as mine? Do you think the clothes were cheaply made as well? Let us know.
