New dolls! Rainy Day dolls
« on: January 19, 2018, 09:52:07 AM »
It looks like Monster High might not be dead yet. A new line of basic dolls has been revealed in a Mattel catalog.

It's a Rainy Day line featuring Lagoona, Venus and Ari with rainboots, umbrellas and raincoats. It looks like they'll be unarticulated, but they come with some nice clothing items.

A little bummed about the articulation, but I do like the raincoats and I'm curious to see if their rain boots are all different or the same recycled shoe.

These are actually quite cute.  I kind of wish we had a rain line back in the glory days, it could have been something great.

Aw, I love their little raincoats but no articulation is a total deal-breaker for me...I might buy the clothes and accessories separately though!

Also, I don't know how many people can read French so here's the translation:

"Lagoona, Venus Mcflytrap or Ari Hauntington in multicoloured dresses and high heels are ready to face rainy days with the cape, the umbrella and the boots they carry with them. A doll set that includes two pairs of shoes, a handbag, an umbrella and a rain cape."

These are like the Day and Night dolls only instead it is Rain and Shine. It's hard to tell from the picture but if their faces and hair are cute they can always be switched to old bodies. There's plenty of old bodies in thrift stores these days.

You'd think Venus and Lagoona would like the water, especially the latter. but I guess they don't want to be wet all the time.

Awwww, these are cute. I love their raincoats. They're not ones I'd buy (never really been into these three characters) but they are cute <3

With articulation they would be the best. I hate they keep going down this route ¨_¨

Also I did a design for something similar a couple of years ago and then redrew it again recently....

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Very cute! While I of course prefer dolls with articulation, I may end up getting the Venus one.

Another great set that would have been perfect for a Fashion Pack!

I never intended to buy any Venuses, but I ended up with five because they keep making good designs. I'll have to see the price tag before I buy this one though.

It looks like they all have the same boots, in different colors, as Elisabat's Ghoulebrities doll?

I really don't know if Mattel is incompetent or if they just don't care. It's not so much the fact that they're releasing unarticulated garbage so much as it is they're releasing unarticulated garbage that renders the toy impractical. If you're going to give a doll an umbrella, why would you not give her the ability to hold said umbrella in a way that makes sense? She may as well be carrying a walking stick for all the good it'll do her. Whoever designed these must have been talking with the genius who brought us stiff-armed Cleo and her harp that she can't play. So much wasted potential with these dolls.

And the thing that really, really gets me is that Mattel is a multi-billion dollar company. People hated on the Lammily doll for being "boring", but that was an unknown independent company release. Mattel has brand recognition and resources. How much would they really lose by putting out more quality dolls instead of cheap plastic dollar store caliber crap? Does the CEO really need a fourth private jet that badly? Ugh.

For the record, I hated on the Lammily doll for the awkward name.
