Let me count the ways:
- Curvy body released
- Tall body released
- Curvy body costs $9.99 online
- Tall body costs $9.99 online
- Tall and Curvy available in the Walmart Easter Basket section
- Tall and Curvy at Walmart for less than $8 each
There was a time when Mattel couldn’t seem to do anything right in my eyes…but these days I feel like they can’t do anything wrong.
I’m excited about the new body types – even when I thought they’d only be available online – I was over the moon. Then, I was in Walmart browsing the Easter Basket section and I found the first curvy, and first tall to be released from the new Fashionistas line.
Of course I scooped up several, telling myself I was going to put them in Leah’s Easter basket. Of course I brought them home and promptly showed them to her. Of course she begged to open them. Of course, I said yes because I, too, was anxious to see them up close.
The changes at Mattel couldn’t come at a better time as far as I’m concerned because Leah just started playing again.
Of course, we still wish we could have the variety with articulation — but that would sound too much like complaining.
And I seem to keep counting:
7. Made to Move is a new more-articulated-than-ever offering
8. Made to Move has an Asian doll (very light skin is harder to find articulated)
I checked the back of the package and it only showed these three dolls. No brown. Sad Tyler barbieland. Am I complaining?
We purchased the Asian one and may return to get the brunette. (I never purchase blondes, ever). We opened her, and rebodied our Asian Easter Girl because I really like the bangs more than the Made To Move head.
And then, Leah conducted Yoga class!!
And last but not least on this love list?
9. I love when Chelsea dolls come with built in bodysuits because they are just too hard to keep dressed anyway.
