Hi, fellow Winx fans! OP here! Thanks for sticking around during the break! I plan to start blogging again on Monday, March 10. There’ll be a new Caption Contest, and I’ve been brainstorming new posts, features, and changes for the blog. I hope to see you then! In the meantime, check out my Affiliates to keep up with the latest Winx news!

Winx Club is serious business. Just ask the contestants on The Apprentice Italia.
Never heard of this show? Here’s a little background. It’s basically a souped-up job interview. The candidates pass challenges for the chance to work for a famous businessperson, like Donald Trump. Each week, at least one contestant is “fired” until there’s a winner.
The challenges usually come from other well-known companies. Like Rainbow.
Last episode, the two teams of contestants brainstormed concepts for new Winx Club fashion lines and each designed three looks for them. Team one’s concept was “romantic rock” — or ”Rockmantix.” The other team came up with a Japan-inspired theme: “My Fairy Tokyo.”
Here are some pictures from the episode! And click here to see the teams’ outfits!
Which line do you like the most?

Remember that Nabu guy?
Yeah. I miss him too.
In season 5, Nick was all for pushing Roy on us, and even though I personally found it annoying (Nabu X Aisha forever), I eventually came to terms with it.
Then came season six, and suddenly, we’ve thrown a paladin into the mix—a paladin that, can I just say, acts a lot like a second Riven. Now there are two guys competing for Aisha’s affection. Two! Apparently, Nabu is worth two men. I’m starting to think that Nick/Rainbow might regret taking Nabu out of the picture, because now it seems like they can’t make up their minds as to how to handle Aisha and her lack of a love interest.
Next thing we know, they’ll throw in the two guys Stella was trying to hook Aisha up with at that party.
What do you guys think of the budding Aisha harem? Which man should stay: Roy, Nex, both, neither…or just bring back Nabu?

For us American fans, the 4Kids dub was our first Winx Club experience. We woke up around 7:30 a.m. to catch new episodes — or reruns, lots of reruns — every Saturday morning.
4KidsTV aired Winx from 2004 to 2008, then brought it back briefly a few years ago for the “finale.” That’s about half of the series’ ten years on TV.
But now that Nick owns the rights, the 4Kids dub is barely mentioned anymore. Quotes pop up now and then in games and on toy packaging, but that’s about it. It’s even hard to find the toys now. There were even DVDs still planned to be released. Not anymore.
What about the RAI English dub? Rainbow still uploads clips and episodes from it on their YouTube channel and on WinxClub.com. It’s also streamed on Netflix. And remember the season one boxset coming out in March? According to reports on Michael’s Winx Club, that will be the RAI English dub, too.
YOUR SAY: Is the 4Kids dub still an important part of Winx Club‘s history?
