Bratz have a new range of dolls on the shelves, called Totally Polished. From left to right in the picture above, you have Cloe (with the funky multi-coloured dress and hat), Meygan (stripey sailor top, rara skirt and boots), Yasmin (floaty floral top, fishnet tights (are they meant to be leggings or did she forget her skirt?!) and boots), Fianna (pink leggings, ethnic print top and wedges) and Jade (hippy chick look with flared trousers, floaty tunic and bandana). The fashionable outfits look great but you'd be forgiven for thinking that they don't look any different to all the other Bratz dolls already out there.
Well, have a look at the box - this is Cloe that we received to review - and you'll immediately see the unique selling point that will have little girls squealing with delight. Each doll comes with a set of little girl-sized stick-on nails that match your doll's outfit. That's actually pretty cool !
Cloe comes with brightly coloured, patterned ones, Meygan gets a striking glamorous gold and black stripe design, Yasmin has flowery ones to match her top, Fianna's have a daisy and stripes pattern and Jade's are pink with a big retro-looking flower design. The idea is lovely and really appealed to Juliette. It's less messy than using real nail varnish (no risk of spills and stains !) but the nails don't stay on for very long, especially when you think of the way little girls play ! (You might want to invest in a pack of adhesive nail pads for real stick-on nails, then cut them in half so that they fit little girls' fingers.) They're fine for a bit of fun or a special party though and they're easy to peel off when you get fed up of wearing them.
The dolls have been made two inches taller than before - they're now 25cm tall (the cynical grown-up in me says that this is a ploy to make you buy a load more clothes because the old ones won't fit !) and Juliette was pleased to see that the new design also has more poseable limbs. You also get a hairbrush and Juliette said that I had to tell you that the hair is lovely and soft and feels real !
There you have it - Juliette loves it and that's the most important thing !
