Littlest Pet Shop: Blythe
I honestly like Blythe dolls that come with certain Littlest Pet Shop sets. They remind me of the Lil' Bratz dolls a lot. When Blythe dolls first came out with Littlest Pet Shop, each Blythe was different. Each doll came with a doll stand, which was nice for collectors. When the new Littlest Pet Shop cartoon came out, the Blythe dolls' faces were slightly changed to look more like the cartoon Blythe.
Unfortunately, Hasbro made major changes to the doll: Blythe now lacks a doll stand, her shoes can not be remove, and she now wears plastic clothing, which just look cheap, and terrible. The plastic clothes also restrict her movment. The postive thing I have to say is that these redsigned Blythe dolls look a lot more like the cartoon Blythe than the previous dolls. Also, I like plastic hair because it does need to be combed, or anything, but like the plastic clothes, the plastic hair tend do get in the way too.
My Little Pony: Equestria Girls
In my opinion, the Equestria Girls speacial was pretty medicore, but at least it had Spike (as a dog) in it. As for the toys based on current cartoon, well toys are okay, I mean the toys do kinda lack ploish, but to be fair, they are pretty cute. Another problem I have with the "main" figures is that they are a little too small for my liking. To be honest, I prefer G3 in terms of toys.
About the Equestria Girls dolls, sorry to say, but these dolls are just horrible. I got the Twilight Sparkle one. Some of you may already know that I think Equestria Girls cartoon characters look ugly, but dolls look much worse. The clothes Twilight is wearing are just awful. She has wings too, they don't seem to stay on for very long. Positives, comes with a pony figure. This has a removable cutie-mark which can be placed on her handbag, very pointless. The brush looks like a pony face, which is kinda clever.
Strawberry Shortcake is back, and cuter than ever! These dolls are pretty well designed. The main gimmick is that each doll has her scent. I think dolls are nice size too, making it easy to display them. The clothing design is pretty clever too. For example, Strawberry Shortcake has selves that look like strawberries. Nice work, Hasbro!
Pictures of mentioned dolls should be found in my gallery. Just look in the 'My Toys' folder.
