Little Mix Fashion Dolls by

I understand how toy manufacturers can go a little off the mark when it comes to resemblances, but sometimes the difference between the two strains credulity. Was the company really trying to get a resemblance? Probably. I suppose some features can be difficult to render realistically in 1:6 scale. Check the recently launched Vivid Imaginations' Little Mix dolls; do you think that the issued fashion dolls resemble the actual group members?

While I don't find that the dolls strongly resemble the singers, they do offer four new faces for playscale collectors. The purple-haired doll - Jade - looks as if she needs a fashion make-over. Bows? The bow at her waist and on her shoes seem one bow too many. Otherwise, she looks okay. The black-haired doll has interesting hair and an odd mouth as though she lost her front teeth. I would add gray streaks to her hair and make her someone's grandmother. The blond doll looks the most "normal," although I "guessed" who she is intended to be by her hair color only. (When the singer is blonde.) Finally, the last doll with reddish-purple hair does have a slightly crazy look in her eyes similar to the singer. And the pink leopard print leggings with the droopy crotch would not become anyone.

The cost of £19.99 (GBP) for the 12-inch replicas becomes roughly $32.19 in U.S. dollars. Here they are on for anyone interested in buying them.





You will all understand that I am NOT getting any of the young singers unless or until they reach bargain bins as expected. What do you think of them?

If I were the humans I would be ticked off. Those dolls have some unfortunate features - compared to their human counterparts.

As dolls without humans for referance I would get Perrie and LeighAnn but mostly for their outfits.

@Muff - LOL, yes, I would be ticked off, too.

Perrie and LeighAnn do have the best outfits of the quartet. Jesy's pink leopard print pants are the ugliest - especially with that dropped crotch ;-P

But I would get the lot if they were at bargain prices ....

Not even close in the resemblance department. Can you say “FUGLY!” But, I gotta admit I’m fond of fugglies and if I were interested in character dolls (which I am not, at this time) I’d go for these. LeighAnn looks like she just sucked a lemon - love her!

I enjoyed the post, D. Still chuckling... soooo tempted to get back into character dolls...

@Robin - LOL about "fugglies." I, too, have a fondness for some character dolls. They balance out the "pretty pretty"* dolls, IMHO ;-D

*Yes, I watch ANTM. Sigh. Quoting a Tyra Banks term there, the "pretty pretty" bit.
