The other day we had a bunch of Bratz dolls come in to the Op Shop. Usually when we get Bratz dolls they have lost their feet and even I can’t muster much enthusiasm for trying to make them look better.However, most of these were in pretty good shape, they had their feet and what looked like their original outfits so I took them home to tidy their hair and photograph them.
I am not a big fan of Bratz. I don’t like large-headed dolls on skinny bodies and I don’t like the make up on the Bratz. They look like brats to me and I don’t find that cute. When I picked up this doll I thought she was a Bratz clone but I liked her face better than the others and I thought that her outfit was cute.
After I photographed her today I decided to look her up and see if I could find out who she is. She was marked MGA Entertainment and I discovered that she is actually one of the Moxie Girlz. The Moxie Girlz were introduced in 2009 after a law suit brought by Mattel saw Bratz taken off the shelves for several years.
I do quite like Avery but probably not enough to keep her. She will be going back to the Op Shop on Monday.
Avery is one of the second wave of Moxie Girlz and was sold in a two pack with a brunette doll called Merin. Here is a link to a page about them.
