Our Friday Girl this week is Flavas Happy D. She belongs to Naomi and is better known to you as Bunty.
The Flavas dolls have an interesting history. I was watching a video about them the other day. Mattel created them around the same time as the My Scene dolls in an effort to win back some of the market lost to Bratz. The dolls were meant to recreate the hip hop style. Unfortunately, they were not successful and were discontinued after three years. There were four girls and two boys and I think three waves of dolls. The dolls seem nicely made, have twist waists and articulated arms and interestingly were made different heights as well as different ethnicities. Happy D is really short next to Teen Skipper.
I especially wanted to show off this doll’s unusual hair. Intertwined with her blonde hair she has four multicoloured braids. Her hair is very fine and flyaway so I just smoothed it down for her photos. I think that she is the second wave Happy D.
I know that Naomi has at least one of the Flavas boys somewhere so when he pops up from wherever he is stored we’ll feature him too.
