Saw First Day of School reboot Draculaura and Frankie

I saw two of the new First Day of School Monster High dolls, Frankie and Draculaura.  They didn't come home.  The new heads are even larger than the originals.  The worse a line sells, the bigger the heads get.  When will it end?  On a similar note, the reboot Bratz have disappeared from my regular Walmart.

For comparison, here they are next to the reboot $5 Cheerleader versions, and an original doll from the dwindling older stock.  I think it's pretty decent that the 1st Day and Cheerleader lines have completely different eye prints.  At least, if you don't like one, you might like the other.

2015 Bratz Deluxe Fashion Packs OOTD

As you can see, I bought two packs at $3.50 each.  I bought them because I wanted the boots and spiky orange shoes.  Now they are in storage MIB, and I sort of regret buying them even at $3.50.  It feels like they should be more enjoyable than they are.

2015 Selfie Snaps Cloe

Here's the only other 2015 Bratz doll I bought, back in November for around $12.  They're now down to $8, or less.  I mostly just wanted her for her great hair color, and shoes.  Nothing else is too exciting.  I'm sure everyone who wanted one has already bought one for a pittance.  Poor new new new Bratz, they pleased parents, apparently not so much kids.

2015 Bratz Selfiesnaps Jade

This post was delayed since before Christmas, because malware messed up my old harddrive.  I ordered Jade from an Amazon sale, along with a book and some presents.  I came home one rainy day and saw Fed Ex had left my Amazon box on the grass, soaked.  Poor Jade was soggy, but her face paint was perfect, so I kept her.  It was a great excuse to debox.

I had to return the hardcover book that had turned into a sponge.  The other things in the box survived because they were stacked on top of the book and Jade.

Back to soggy Jade.  She dried out just fine, everything is polyester or plastic, anyway.  She's the only 2015 doll I really, really wanted.  My only complaints are the sloppy paint job on the shoes, and the unhemmed slit up the sides of the pants.  Everything else is cute.
