Lalaloopsy Tinies Series 2 Style 4
For months one of my local Wal-Marts has had a large Crumbs Sugar Cookie on the shelf and I never made a move because I figured I had enough dolls as it is, two with the same hair as her. Then of course the day I finally decide I want to get her she’s gone. It wasn’t meant to be. So I got something else that I had been considering, mini Yuki Kimono and a set of Lalaloopsy Squinkies, I mean Tinies.
I chose this set mainly because of Suzette and Scoops. It’s nice to have Charlotte and Mango as well, but I don’t dislike the others. They all have holes that run through them, I guess so you can make bracelets and stuff. On the bottom of their feet it says L and R, just like the large dolls.
SPOILER ALERT : My surprise figure was Twist E. Twirls. She is labeled as Prairie Dusty Trails.
So it looks like we have Scoops Waffle Cone, Suzette La Sweet, Holly Sleighbells, Twist E. Twirls (or red Prairie?), Suzette’s puppy, Twist E.’s butterfly, Charlotte Charades, Mango Tiki Wiki, Pearly Seafoam and Crumbs’s mouse. I’m not into the bubbly mermaids so I didn’t know her name right off. She doesn’t stand up so good. I would have preferred Bubbles Smack ‘n’ Pop, but I think she’s in another set. There’s a Target exclusive pack with all translucent dolls, whomever they may be.
Here’s the mouse from the Crumbs sisters pack next to the Tinies mouse. I actually prefer the Tinies version. It’s cuter in its stylized chubbiness. The Tinies version also has a heart patch on its butt, but the mini mouse does not. The Tinies are small enough to look like little sisters of the mini sized Littles and maybe baby sized next to the regular minis.
I think they’re all cute so I like them. I never bought any micros because they were blind bag, and I like to know what I’m buying. However, the price on these seems a little high. Since there are so many it makes sense for them to cost more than one mini, but when I look at the packs they don’t look like ten dollar toys. Still, I might get another set, the one that has Alice, but I will probably wait until they start marking them down.
Doodles of Dyna and Dazzle. I’m telling you guys, Tippy Tumblelina henshins into Dazzle ‘n’ Gleam. A Lalaloopsy transformation sequence, that would be interesting to see.
I still want to do a neatly illustrated version of the Scoops pic, but I also wanted one of the Mittens ones done more quickly, so you know, colored sketch.
I had sketched Mittens some more before I bought Bea Spells-a-lot, and micro Bea was gonna be part of that picture. Since someone brought up the Scoops sketch I will try to work on that next. If my old oekaki board is still activated, I may start doing quick pics there.
Edit: I just checked and it’s gone. Oh well.
Is it me or do these girls look like they could be the next Pretty Cure series, Precure Gems or something. Somebody needs to make that happen! Get on that fan art, people! Yeah I watched a little Pretty Cure out of curiosity: a little Heart Catch, a little Doki Doki, and some other one. I was a Sailor Moon fangirl so it was kinda like been there, done that.
I noticed the blue one has the same dress as Fancy Frost n Glaze which is too bad because I already have Fancy, but her hair is interesting. I think the red one’s the cutest. The green one catches my eye the most even though she has Ivory’s hair. The purple may be my least favorite, but I don’t dislike her. Every time I look at this set they grow on me. This might be the first set where I like all 4 of the characters together, and I think it’s because they are the most similar in theme. They are a team, fighting a lazily designed monster in every episode while having weird rainbow colored hair styles and cutesy dresses.
Lalaloopsy Girls Bea Spells-a-Lot with her pencil hair clips on and in her box, sort of. I’m wearing the hair clip box handle on my ponytail right now, just because.
In memory of the original Toasty Sweet Fluff
I didn’t realize she was wearing a headband until I sketched her. I just thought she had marshmallows and sticks growing out of her head. If Scoops has ice cream hair, and Winter has snowball hair, then why not? I might do a cleaned up version of this with more marshmallowy looking dress fluff.
Together at last. Sorry Ivory, but Goldie’s stand is way better.
I’ve been waiting out Goldie for the $20 price point. It only took, what, a year?
Lalaloopsy Girls: Bea Spells-A-Lot
I saw Bea and Mittens at the store today. They are the only two I like so far, but Bea has the best clothes and she reminds me of Blossom from the Powerpuff Girls, so I got her.
She comes with hair clips and a comb along the the pet and PJs. I would have preferred a wearable backpack accessory or something over the hair clips, but it is what it is. The doll has color change hair which I haven’t tried yet. She does stand on her own in her shoes. She is wearing pink undies with the sewn date on them, just like the original Bea.
For some reason I thought I could yank off her hair bow, but I couldn’t. I don’t think her glasses are meant to come off either. It would be nice to be able to swap out these accessories like you would with any other fashion doll. For the record, her dress fits like a long shirt on a Monster High doll. Her PJs fit okay but it’s tight around the shoulders and doesn’t close perfectly in the back.
I don’t mind much that she’s not that articulated since they are supposed to be dolls and not people. Maybe it’s just me but when a Lalaloopsy Girl has her hand raised it looks likes she’s heiling the führer…or waving hi, you know, depending on how the arm is exactly. Another thing is the lipstick. I would have preferred a plain stitched up smile or the stitches and the lipstick together.
Overall, it’s a decent doll if you’re already into Lalas or like the aesthetic. I might get Mittens one day, but I’d probably get a Scoops or Toffee or a boy like Patch or Forest (not likely) if they ever do those characters. I think kids and collectors have been spoiled by more poseable and photogenic fashion dolls in recent years. Hopefully they don’t go the way of the Novi Stars too soon.
