Spooky September Sextet: Kid Connections' Scary Dolls



I wanted to check another Walmart to see if that one had the Fashion Madness guys T.J. and Dwayne. Alas, they did not. However, I did find an interesting sextet of  inexpensive fashion dolls by Kid Connection: Scary Dolls.

The back of their box offers this information:

Set of 6 Gorgeous Dolls Fully Outfitted in Trendy Fashions

Each 11.5 Inch Doll Wears a Fab Outfit With Matching Accessories

Perfect for Imaginative Play and Hairstyling for Endless Fashion Fun


Yes, these are another set of wannabe Monster High dolls. Like last year's Midnight Magic dolls by Lovely Patsy and this year's Scary Fashion doll by Just Kidz. More monster fun for the upcoming Halloween scene.

One doll has brown skin with white lips - I get it, snap! Her scary power is ashy lips. Ha, ha, ha. Another doll has orange skin (flame doll?), another has blue skin (water or ice?), another has dark pink skin (a la Draculaura?), another has bright green skin, and the last has "regular" pinkish skin.

The articulation, however, is limited on these dolls. Head, shoulders, probably hips, definitely knees. No elbow articulation. Still for $19.97 a sextet, that's not bad. The black-white plaid dress looks cute - also the purple-black flouncy dress worn by the orange-skinned doll. Blah accessories, yes. But in spite of the dolls all having the same blank pretty face, Kid Connection did provide variation in the complexions and the hair styles.

So these are on my Maybe list. What do you think about them?

Yes, they can all date Captain Kirk. Here in NY there are so many Monster High cheap knock offs. I def won't b buying these. I'm waiting for the Ever After High dolls to get here.

Cheap dolls are never in my radar (or rarely). Even worse when they pretend to be Monster High dolls --'

Hello from Spain: in my city in toy stores sell only type dolls and Monster High dolls cheap imitators. I do not like this kind of dolls. I prefer the Barbies and the like. Dolls beautiful and glamorous. Keep in touch

Wow, those are practically indistinguishable from the originals... :D I actually just saw my first MH clones in the local dollar store, but they were gone before I could return to take a pic for posterity.

Hi and hey, Super Cool Doll House! LOL, that Star Trek scene doesn't sound too good for these gals.

Hi Ingrid! Date Captain Kirk? LOL. Aw ... the poor girls ... ;-)

Hi V. Confession: once upon a time, the only notice I would have given a set like this is a second glance. Some of Limbe Dolls posts inspired me to give the cheaper dolls a chance ;-)

... some of the cheaper dolls, lol.

Hi Marta I read you ;-) I prefer the "regular" dolls, but sometimes some of the cheap ones attract my eye. Now whether I follow up and actually buy them, that's another story ;-)

Hi Anderson's All-Purpose - oh, don't you hate when something is pulled before you get a chance to photograph it? Grrr ...

I think these dolls look like Chic Boutique dolls made up to look like MH clone dolls.

Hola, Lindaivette Montes de Oca! Estoy de acuerdo que es una ganga.

I went to look for the TJ and Wayne at a Walmart that had the other dolls in the line. They were all gone. I saw two Artsy but there wasn't a Black doll in the store! No SIS, not AA clones, and one Steven in the swimsuit. I guess it is starting!

D7ana said...

Hi and thanks for commenting, Ms. Leo. Whst does that say about no one wants to buy Black dolls ;-D

Well, I think they are cool and so are their outfits. I know "clones" are not to everyone's tastes, but not all parents can afford a Barbie or a super expensive Monster High Doll. Any kid would be getting their value out of that play pack, which is less than one MH doll, by the way.

D7ana said...

Hi Muff! I like this set of dolls. The AA doll doesn't have any odd colors, but I like her and some of the brightly colored other dolls. I agree that this set is a great bargain for the cost.
