Through ItalToys.it, we’ve gotten our first look at the new World of Winx toys and dolls coming out soon!

Forever Fashion

These are the Winx’s “trendy” outfits. The line includes all six Winx, and each doll comes with wings and a few accessories that match her talent.

Style Magic

These are the dresses the Winx wore in “The Fashion Week” (1X06) and “The Fall of the Queen” (1X13). The line includes all six Winx, and each doll comes with wings and a brush. I’m not sure why these are being marketed under Winx Club instead of World of Winx, though. If Rainbow decides to make dolls wearing some of the other random outfits, will they all be sold as budget Winx Club dolls?

Dreamix Fairy

This line includes all six Winx. Stella and Flora were previously revealed during the Nuremberg Toy Fair in February.

Action Spy

This light-up Bloom doll comes with a glove that allows you to interact with her.

Spy Camper

No one has found any pictures of the toy yet. According to ItalToys, it comes with binoculars, wings, a light-up bracelet, a whiteboard, a pen with a flashlight on it, and a table with a light-up map.

Winx fans also found a new doll from Winx Club, not World of Winx: the 35-in.-tall (90 cm.) My Bloom Tynix doll.

Okay…

Don’t worry. Like WinxClubRUS said, it’s probably a prototype. She looks more like Stella than Bloom! Plus, those are obviously her Butterflix wings, and her outfit doesn’t look accurate at all. Hopefully, we’ll see a better version of this doll later.

What do you think of these new dolls and toys?

Dreamix dolls - Stella and Flora

Credit goes to WinxClubRUS for sharing this news first!

The Nuremberg Toy Fair began today, and Witty Toys will be showing off new dolls based on World of Winx. According to ToyNews, those dolls will be the Dreamix collection, which will feature all six Winx, and a light-up Action-Spy doll that comes with a “special roleplay glove.”

ToyNews also reported the latest dolls Witty Toys launched (Tynix) were “the best-selling fashion doll[s] in Italy in November, based on revenue.” Go, Winx!

(Heads up: I’m gonna take another short break from talking about World of Winx, unless there’s big news.)

UPDATE: Animation Digital Digest posted a high-quality image of the Flora Dreamix doll. (Credit to WinxClubRUS again for finding it first.)

Thanks to Jazmin B. for this news!

Toys R Us USA has finally added the Bloomix dolls to their website. These photos look pretty drab compared to past ones. I guess JAKKS really doesn’t care about Winx anymore. 🙁

Oh well. At least we can order them now. They’re JAKKS’s last Winx dolls, so get ’em while they’re hot!

JAKKS Pacific Believix Dolls

When I heard JAKKS is done making Winx dolls, I was crushed. Do you know how much I loved collecting them? I spent my last two birthdays on eight-hour road trips just to find them! I’ve called Toys R Us more times in the last two years than in my whole life! And now it’s over? 🙁

I couldn’t accept it at first. I started brainstorming ways to change JAKKS’s mind. A sudden jump in sales? A rash of doll reviews? The #SomethingTrulyMagical campaign got their attention — what if we tweeted more pics of our dolls?

Then I read this comment from Bunny and decided to give up:

Unfortunately I’m not surprised. Jakks has a bad habit of delaying releases of toys and then dropping the rights to their lines (though their product quality varies.)

I’ll use Pokemon as an example:

Jakks picked up the rights to the Pokemon toy franchise in 2006 (coinciding with the release of the DS games) after Hasbro dropped their license. At first they seemed to handle the series well, releasing toys semi-frequently and plushies every so often. I was thrilled when they released plushies of the legendaries!

However as the years passed, they released less and less, making their toys even harder to find. Their selection also whittled out, making it annoying as I was trying to collect certain ones. In 2011, they released their last line of plushies, in 2012, they dropped the license entirely, and in 2013 all their toys ceased production.

Pokémon? As in Nintendo’s golden goose? 6 million fans on Facebook? 245 million game units sold worldwide since 1998? That Pokémon? 

If JAKKS mistreated a series that big, they don’t deserve the rights to Winx Club. So long, JAKKS. You blew it.

As much as I loved their dolls, I had some complaints about them.

  • Bloom’s Harmonix crown looks tacky on the Bloomix dolls, and Daphne’s star-heel pumps only suit Stella. JAKKS shouldn’t have reused them.
  • $20 for a doll and a brush is highway robbery.
  • How many times did we get our hopes up for dolls that never came out? Musa and Tecna Harmonix? Delayed, then cancelled. Mythix and Color Splash? To the graveyard they go. 🙁

I’m hoping for new Winx dolls in the U.S. next year. But if they’re not from JAKKS, that’s fine with me — as long as the next toy maker keeps the fluttering wings. We can thank them for that, at least.
