About this deal

It's hard to contextualise her skin tone with other dolls and I might get her for a doll hybrid lol. Since these dolls have removable hands, I was able to include Evie's hand in a lineup--without even de-boxing her. Although both of the currently-released dolls look pretty white, Lonnie and Jay are Asian, Audrey is African American, and Carlos is of mixed race (I think).

I like it when this is the case--unlike the situation with Monster High dolls (especially lately) where it's necessary to be super-careful about avoiding paint smudges and wonky eyes. Because Jane's bow symbol was so pervasive in her accessories, I assumed that Audrey would have a lot of bird items accompanying her. Mal's articulation might not be perfect, but it's so much better than a lot of the other Disney dolls on the market. By the way, I totally agree with you (and the anonymous above) about her name, and I'm glad you mentioned it: what kind of name is Lonnie, and how is it supposed to be a Chinese name? I'm still excited about the great articulation in these dolls, although Jane's ultra-stiff knee joints gave me pause.Evie was the first one who stood out to me because of her interesting face mold, and Coronation Lonnie ended up being my actual favorite. Your pics show all these dolls to best advantage, but Coronation Lonnie and Evie are the only ones striking enough to appeal to me.

This variety has created five very distinct dolls, each of whom has at least a few features that I really like. Even after a thorough brushing, the hair has a strange, sloppy, hard-to-manage cut that I was unable to make look nice. I think one things that's hard to truly capture is the body scale/proportions of the DDs in comparison to EAH or MH - it's a lot more realistic and really just very solid (I wonder if someone will color match a Skipper to one of the girls) and the quality is simply tops. In the end, I did get both knees to bend without breaking the joints, but I moved very slowly and carefully. I was also very happy with the changes in packaging for these dolls, especially the thread that held on the worn accessories.I am not crazy about Mal's jacket, so it's fantastic to have so many other things in the house that she can wear. I think that I might have been a bit more excited about this concept if it hadn't been done so much better by other toy companies. I know there will be a lot of comparisons to Ever After High, but I honestly can't stand the EAH dolls.

Another more minor complaint I have about her is that I really preferred the face her prototype doll came with (http://www. Not only does the dress compliment Audrey's coloring, but it has a great mix of modern elements and reminders of the original Disney Sleeping Beauty character. Even though I did boil wash Lonnie's hair, it would have been fine to display or play with it in its original style. I don't have very many Winx or Fairy Tale High doll clothes to try on Mal, but just looking at these two makes me skeptical that clothes-sharing would be ideal. If you're using Safari and can't comment, here's something to try: go to your Safari settings, select Preferences, then select Privacy.

One last thing that I love about this new collection of dolls is that the characters all appear to have different face molds. I will admit though that I am most looking forward to your review of the Carlos and Evie set as this is set I really want to purchase and the characters are my favorite from the book. Also, I'm pretty sure that some of the movie was filmed at the BC legislature, using the building as one of the castles. Seeing the level of detail and articulation on the Descendants dolls makes me hopeful for what Hasbro will do with the regular Disney line. It did make me dislike Jane's character much more than her doll (whom I also have in a different outfit), and really wish I'd picked up Coronation Evie.Mal's name is accompanied by "Isle of the Lost" because this is where she was raised with her villain mother. When it's plastic ties I can't ever seem to get them completely gone when they've attached something to the head and I make a frizzy mess of hair with getting rubber bands out. DISNEY'S DESCENDANTS DOLL COLLECTION: Add this Mal doll to your kid's fashion doll collection, and collect more dolls like Mal's best friend, Evie and her husband, Ben. The collar is rubber-banded to Mal's chest, and the same rubber bands hold down the side pieces of her hair. Audrey's upper eyelid is set a bit lower, and her eyebrows are higher--removing the apologetic look that Jane has.
