I think Howleen has Cleo's hands(Some of Cleo's hands can be on the small size) specially considering Cleo has fakie hands.

I did got an Evie and Mal once that were wearing each other shoes... and hands :p (And a Lonnie with Mal's hands too!)

As Ameyal mentioned, the first release Cupid has black joints on her hands. The second release had white joints. :)

Also, Venus is missing her hair vines and necklace, but those should be pretty easy to replace compared to the missing bits for Nefera and Cupid.

Nice finds for under $7 each!

Edit: on second look, her hair vines may be around her waist instead of in her hair? And she may be missing her belt, instead.

Howleen's hands are clawed but slightly darker than her skintone (which is darker than my other Howleen anyway), so I'm thinking they're probably Clawdeen's, since Cleo's hands aren't clawed, right?
Ameyal, that must have been an interesting day of hand-matching! :P
Lianneth, thank you! Definitely the second release for Cupid, then. Venus did come with her belt (no necklace), but I didn't like it so I replaced it with her hair-vines. It's good to know she's almost complete!
Thanks, ebmerc, I still can't fully believe it! :D

I'm back! :D

I stayed away from doll-hunting for a bit (no money, busy with work, lack of space), but what the heck, it's a fun hobby!

Yesterday I went to my favourite second-hand toy store to look for a nightlight (I keep reading spooky stuff before bed and creeping myself out :P) and when I swung by the doll section, I saw some odd-faced, spindly-limbed, funky-haired dolls.

'I don't need to start collecting another doll line!' I told myself sternly.
'Weeee, they'll make great fairies!' I said as I piled them in my shopping basket.



Salesgirl was kind enough to tell me they were Winx, which I've heard about but never seen in person. I got five dolls, with outfits and shoes (except for one barefoot fairy). A cursory look at Google tells me the blue-haired fairy is the same character with two radically different hair-styles? Anyway, they're sisters now. And I seem to be missing the red-head main character and a generic blonde.

If anyone here is familiar with Winx and can help me ID these girls, I'd be very grateful! Even just pointing me towards a site where I can find more info would be great.

Since I took that pic last night, I gave them a bath, combed the rat's nests most of them had as hair, and I'm on the lookout for good alternative outfits.

Ooh! Congrats on the find! ^_^ Those look like the older, pre-Jakks Pacific Winx! Sooo jealous of that Tecna! XD

Firemau, thank you so much! Knowing the names is half the battle. :)

Nemesis, thanks! Their marks say "2004/2005 Rainbow S.r.l", so you're right, no Jakks here. I had no idea they were that 'old' when I picked them up! :P

They're super cute! A nice score!

I googled and found what looks to be a Winx wiki - so maybe a resource for more info, now that you have names?

No problem, my granddaughter loves Winx. We watched all the cartoons.

I dislike Winx with the passion of a thousand suns, but I have to admit their dolls are kind of cte and have interesting faces to say the least.  I myself got two baity ones (Stella and Bloom) and later got an articulated Stella just for the heck of it. (All fle marketed)

DogMom, thank you very much! Now I have all the info I need.
Ameyal, that's funny, why do you hate Winx? I've never consumed the media associated with any of the doll lines I collect, so I only get them for the faces/bodies.

Went back to my favourite store, and was lucky enough to grab the two Winx girls I was missing last time, so now I have a complete set...



... plus when I walked in, a friendly salesgirl looked at me and said, "we got a MH car in, do you want it?". It wasn't on shelves yet, but of course I wanted it! The Roadster and Robecca were less that $10. It pays off to be known as the MH-crazy at your local store!



And the BIG SCORE of the month... I'm saving it for Christmas, since I don't usually get gifts so I have to make my own, but from what I can see through the bag it's the (complete?) Li'l Woozeez Camper playset (https://www.amazon.com/Lil-Woodzeez-Playset-Interactive-Accessories/dp/B00BDC1ALC) + the Owl family! It's massive and it has all the soft fabric bits (frilly curtains, soft cushions) plus a lot of tiny things that I can't wait to explore! It was well outside my usual second-hand budget, but it was worth the 'splurge'.

The camper set is sweet I love those small animal sets and the accessories are so adorable.

Thank you, snowblossum! I once stumbled upon a few Lil'Woodzees family sets on clearance at a local supermarket, and I fell in love, and now I finally have a playset for them! It is, indeed, adorable.

Today I went by my usual second-hand store while running errands, and this little haul brightened my (PMS-y) day!



Adorable Lalaloopsy with an extra outfit. FdC Rochelle, a tad battered but lovely. And the big find, a baggie with a handful of MH pets, for under $3! I already have Shiver and Dusty, but I can always do with more gargoyle griffins, piranhas and playful skeletons, and I didn't have Howleen's hedgehog, Robecca's robot penguin, or Gigi's scorpion! :biggrin:

Totally missed this before:
Ameyal, that's funny, why do you hate Winx? I've never consumed the media associated with any of the doll lines I collect, so I only get them for the faces/bodies.
I'm not sure if they are a copy, but the cartoon appeared suspiciously close to the W.i.t.c.h. one, which had already been in comic form for several years, and comparing the two franchises... well, Winx is rather shallow.

Also OMG PETSSSS!!!!! The other stuff is very cool, but I really really love the pets haha
