Chicks With Wigs
« on: March 11, 2018, 12:15:03 PM »
My sister has been eyeing these recently, but she wasn't sure how she felt about them.  While looking for pictures of them, she not only found out Kellee Riley designed the box art (she did some Monster High work including I Only Have Eye For You and SDCC Valentine and Whisp's box art, plus many toy arts like Forces of Destiny and Shimmer and Shine) she was sold by the fact that their hair is rooted!  We were thinking it might just be a mold or a removable plastic wig.  Plus, $3.88 wasn't too bad.

So we grabbed one today.  She got Amanda Chick, a purple cutie with curly pink hair.  They stand around 3 1/2 inches tall.  The hair is kind of coarse feeling, but it's still soft. 





She's got a kind of wings on her hips pose.  And look at her butt!





Here's their chick checklist.  There is two dozen in the first wave, each either purple, pink, or yellow.  Six different hair styles in different colors, and different facial expressions.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

They're pretty cute; she definitely plans on getting a few more.

When I first saw these I thought "the toy industry has officially run out of ideas" but the artwork is crazy-cute. The chicks themselves are cute, but I'm not overly fond of every facial expression, some are cute though! Not sure how to feel about the hair being a bit on the coarse side though, but I do like that the hair is actually rooted and not just a cheap-o wig.

That's about what I was thinking when I saw them, too, but they've grown on us.  :lol:  The rooted hair was the clencher.  I kind of do feel like they might be a one wave kind of thing, but who knows?  I've seen no ads, and no one else has bought any, but our area is definitely not a good one to judge on how things sell.

I'm not a fan of all of the faces, either.  Same with the hair.  I love the short bobs and the long curls the most.

I forgot to add on the first post they had a strip of plastic over the eyes and hair, and they're just in a clear bag.  As much as we've shaken some boxes around, I hope that plastic is enough to keep the hair styled.

Awwww! These remind me of the Fairy Tails birds from the 80s! I just wish the eyes were more detailed/pretty.

Still... I know Iím going to end up with a few of these. XD

We found them at Walmart.  I'm not sure about other locations, I'm not near any to check.   Good news is I don't see any rarities, so none should wind up being highly expensive.

Kinda disappointed that they donít have actual wigs, though. Being able to mix and match wigs and chicks would be a fun idea, imo.

My sister got two more tonight, Karen and Jo Marie.  She's not sure about keeping Jo Marie, so she's staying in her bag for now.



Honestly, looking at more than one, there's some cute little details.  The beaks are different, and Karen's beak is open.  Karen for some reason didn't have the plastic on her face, but Jo Marie does, if you can kind of see it in the bag here.



I do kind of wish they had wigs, it'd be nice to put the hair you like with the faces you like.  The purple hair is definitely softer and less coarse than the pink.

I WAS WONDERING ABOUT THESE.
Thanks for sharing photos!

Are they hard plastic or more of a soft, rubbery vinyl like MLPs?

They totally remind me of MLP/My Little Kitty/Fairy Tail Birds aswell!!

If they stick around long enough for Wave 2 I might get interested if some green or blue ones come out.
Also Esbayne on the MLP Arena, PonyIsland, and pretty much everywhere else.

I've been looking around for them when we go out, and so far have only seen them at the Walmart here.  My sister's happy, though, she's the only one getting them.  I don't know if we've gotten them first or if the other stores still haven't rotated stock or what.

Or to try the wigs in other toys

She has one she doesn't like as much that she'd part with.  So far, no doubles.  I'm wondering, since i haven't really looked at the boxes so much, since there's two dozen, and 12 per case, there should not be repeats per case. 

Having touched others as well, it's only Amanda's pink hair that's kind of coarse.  The others feel very nice.  I don't know if it's the color or type, the long hair itself, or just a bad one.  Haven't found anymore with long hair yet.

My sister has not bought one in a while, but she got one last night, Missy Chick.  Her hair also feels great  Seems like it might just be that pink.

I haven't been able to find them at any other Walmart, just the one case at ours.
