VicTORI Spin Master Jade is Here!

Calling any Victorious doll fans.

Anyone recall last year when I mentioned the three additional dolls that were to have been a part of Spin Master's Victorious doll series? Cat, Jade, and Trina? I had not seen any of those dolls so I assumed that they were only available online. For exorbitant prices. Well, I was wrong. The dolls were seen at Walmart by another blogger in January 2012.

Well, I have just seen these dolls in Philly at Ross, Dress for Less stores. Cost? $5.99 each. Yes! So guess who had to get one of them: me. Which one? Jade. Why her? First, she is the only closed mouth doll in the series. Next, she reminds me of a young Elizabeth Taylor. And last, because she looks different from most of my other fashion dolls.




Okay, I know that at least one person is curious about how this doll compares to Spin Master's once popular Liv dolls. At least, I was - so one person, ha ha. So I took a few photos showing a Liv doll body of similar complexion to Jade.






Yes she is no where near as poseable as the Liv dolls, but we all knew that when we found that she only had articulated knees. Her shoulders and legs allow for wide open stances though. So that helps. But alas the no bend arms. Sigh.

Now many of you share my um dislike of bigger heads. And no denying this, Jade has a big head. But it is somewhat in proportion to her body. And I rather like her in spite of the biggish head. She reminds me a little of Azone's Belinda.

What do you think of her? You can see a few Toys R Us reviews.

Hello from Spain: I like your new doll. She remembers a lot like a young Elizabeth Taylor. Very good purchase. Keep in touch

Hi Marta! Thanks for stopping by! I agree with you that she resembles a young Elizabeth Taylor. She's fun even if she isn't as poseable as some dolls.

I don't really like her big head, but her clothes are very cute! It's pity she isn't as poseable as Liv dolls are :/ But pretty interesting find anyway!

Great way to pose them, so clever. CM

I like her face. You're right - it does resemble a young Elizabeth Taylor. Pity about the arms but not too bad at posing otherwise.

her face is very cute, I love the blush! Nowadays it seems very hard to find good poseable bodies besides fashionistas...

Hi Jewel Snake, My Realitty, Carrickters, and V.!

Thanks for commenting.

I still haven't bought the original Tori doll from this series - because of the big head. But at this price I got the Jade doll in spite of my usual aversion to big-headed dolls. Maybe it is her resemblance to Liz Taylor? I am not a BIG Liz Taylor fan, but I like her look in fashion dolls.

Funny, I had fun finding ways to pose her with the Liv body ;-D

Reasonably priced, good, poseable bodies are tricky to find nowadays. Sigh.

I like her face and I like that price! The body though - sigh.

D7ana said...

Hi Muff! I was just thinking that Jade could be overdue a shrink session in Florida ;-D

And yes, the body does cause one to sigh.

I like her even though her arms wont bend. I think it is her color and make-up I like.

Hi and thanks, Grandmommy, for your comment! I like her coloring and make-up, too. Nice to have variety in our collections ;-)
