FRONT & BACK OF BOX
Thanks to this video from fellow Winx fan Eric (justanothercrazywinxfan.blogspot.com), unboxing her was easy and didn't take me as long as usual. All you need is a good pair of scissors.
She was packaged the same way as most JAKKS Winx dolls, except for her wings. They were held down by plastic strips. I cut one and slipped her wing out from under the other. For everything else, I followed the tips in Eric's video. (Watch it! It's very helpful!)
She's said to be a Valentine's Day doll (she was released on Feb. 15), but she has more of a "HalloWinx" style. The only hint is the pink heart on her dress. Everything else is very Gothic — lace trim, mesh gloves and stockings, and lots of black. It's an "edgier" look for Bloom. (Too edgy, maybe? What do you think?)
My favorite part of her outfit is the skirt. The blue shades were replaced with glittery layers of pinks. Very pretty!
It's interesting that JAKKS gave her stockings (which she doesn't wear in the official photos). They would have looked awful on Target's Bloom Enchantix doll, but they look good on this one.
She has smaller wings compared to the normal doll, and little details like diamonds on the tips make them a bit more accurate (if you ignore the colors, of course). The stars are a nice touch. I love how they sparkle!
If I had to choose between the two Bloom Enchantix dolls, I'd pick the normal one. But this is a fun spin on her.
WHAT I LIKE
The colors: They grab your attention and make her stand out!
Her wings: The colors gives her wings even more of a butterfly-like look. And, of course, I love it that you can make them flutter. It's my favorite thing about JAKKS's Winx dolls.
WHAT I DON'T LIKE
The price: $29.99 for a doll and a brush? That's a bit high, especially since you get the same thing with the Believix and Harmonix collections for $10 less (per doll). So you're really paying for the "special edition" label, which is to be expected.
The posing joints: They're very loose, which makes her easier to pose than the Believix dolls — but I felt like I'd snap her arms off if I wasn't careful!
Too much glitter on the skirt: It makes it stiff, so it doesn't tuck under her well when you sit her down. She was leaning in some of my photos.
THINGS TO WATCH OUT FOR
- She leaves glitter everywhere!
- Be careful not to tear the gloves and stockings.
If you buy Winx dolls to play with them, I'd save your money for the Harmonix dolls and future Sirenix dolls. But if you're a collector like me, she'd make a great addition! I'd recommend her.
