Ever since Chloe mentioned the new Bratzillaz Switch-A-Witch sets in the comments of the talking Merida review, I have been watching for them at my local stores. I guess its time to admit that I have become a bit of Bratzillaz fan...which is unexpected. Also, I am fascinated by MGAs blatant copy of the Create-A-Monster idea. Its shameless. Not only is the concept nearly identical to that of Mattels Monster High mix-and-match line, but even the packaging looks the same. I found my Switch-A-Witch set ... read more »
I reviewed Midnight Beach Meygana Broomstix very recently, so you might think that Id take a break from the Bratzillaz line for a while. The thing is, at the end of the Midnight Beach review I said, If MGA produces another wave of dolls with normal skin and nice hair, Id be very interested. Well. Its almost like MGA read my mind. I am very interested in this new doll:

After my Yasmina Clairvoya review, I figured that I would never buy another Bratzillaz. There were just too many disappointments with that doll. However, when I was at Walmart the other day, I noticed a new line of Bratzillaz called the Midnight Beach collection, and my curiosity got the best of me. First and foremost, I wanted to know if they had fixed the hair with the new Meygana. Remember how terrible the first Meyganas hair was? This Meyganas hair looks different. It doesnt appear to be the su... read more »
The Novi Stars have been in stock at my local Target for a few weeks now. I spent a considerable amount of time squatting in the toy aisle and examining them when they first appeared, but I didnt feel any urge to buy one. They struck me as pretty small and simple for a $20 doll--actually my first thought was that they resemble Happy Meal toys. Thats probably not a fair comparison, but the price definitely seems high. Since that first encounter, I have heard some encouraging things about the line and ... read more »
I reviewed a Bratzillaz doll pretty recently (Meygana Broomstix), but Meyganas hair was such a disaster, I decided that it might be worth looking at another one of these newcomers before passing my final judgement on the line. Also, I am experimenting with some different backgrounds for my pictures, and this doll works really well with my new favorite grey background. Let me know what you think.
The other thing I want to mention before I get started is that I seem to have 99 followers. This is really... read more »
Bratz dolls are not really my style. I can honestly say that I have never walked the aisles of a toy store and been tempted by a Bratz character. I dont even like the name. Remember that I am a huge Cinderella fan, and looking at the world through that lens, the Bratz dolls come off a bit like the bratty stepsisters.
Anyway, Bratz dolls first appeared in 2001 and have been dominating an impressive chunk of the fashion doll market ever since. Mattel and MGA Entertainment have been suing each other ba... read more »
