I keep on passing on these lovely ladies, but I have decided that on my next payday, I'll be picking up either Cleo or Catrine.  I know I will need all 5 of them eventually.  Will wait until I can see Amanita in person before I decide on that.

I went back to Target and they still had GnB Cleo and Jina there so I snagged Cleo and she was 19.99 Canadian. Either they've started marking down the Target Canada stock, or that was a misread. She wasn't ringing up and wasn't in the system. Either way, Got her for a steal!

I wasn't going to get them, but like other Canadians on here I got them at a steal for 15 bucks each including Jina and Cleo.

I finally found Cleo today and picked up two of her at that price.

It seems like these will be the last Target exclusives I get here in Canada. So sad!
Looking for SDCC Frankie!!!

I saw the Catrine and Boolittle dolls at Target the other day. Pretty but not for $24.99. I just can't spend that much on a doll. Shame I missed all the clearanced stuff :(

Haven't seen any in my town yet but I won't think twice about buying Catrine if I see her

I'm gonna go back at the end of the month and see if I can snag Jina. And maybe MB Maddie before they really get rid of their stock.

i'm not so sure theyre replacing SwS...
with both SwS and PG there were no supplemental dolls, only deluxe, and they have the target exclusive sticker on the box. that would also imply there was another wave of G&B coming, which there isnt that we know of other than amanita... hmm

Have *any* store exclusives had a sticker on the box indicating it lately? I don't think I've seen one of those in a while, probably not at all last year.

The last one I saw with an exclusive sticker was the newest swim class girls at Justice.

It just seems odd to me that they would make part of the line Target Exclusive.  Usually they put out 4 dolls with no related line ties Scary Tales, Power Ghols and Sweet Screams.  Walmart is the one that usually has one exclusive doll that is part of a line.  Wonder if Target/Mattel are chaning up the formula.

That is so wierd, they are $14.99 here in Texas.  Thought it might be a misprint at one store, but I have gone now to various Target's and they always ring up at $14.99 (Jane, Catrine, and Venus).  I have not seen Jinafire or Cleo so no personal experience pricing those two.

I didn't scan them but they did have a sticker on the shelf that said MH Gloom and $24.99. I think someone mentioned several unusually high prices. Like I saw the Ever After High Getting Fairest dolls listed for $24 and they usually sell for $21.99 wonder what gives

You might try scanning one and see what happens.  I was actually shocked they were only $14.99 (not on sale), so I jumped on it before they correct it because I cannot believe these dolls would actually be cheaper than the NS or Sports dolls.  When I went to get a new Venus that was not wonky, I figured prices would probably be corrected so I could just get her at regular price then return my other one, but they were still $14.99.  So I have kept my other Venus thinking I would get Jinafire when she came out and then return my Venus so I could lock her price in at $14.99 but now it seems Jina and Cleo might be on a different code and price.  I am so bummed! lol.  I am thinking I might better get Jane and retunrn the Venus in case I get stuck with an extra because I am not sure if I still have the $14.99 receipt for Venus.

Yeah the prices on the Ever After High dolls made my jaw drop, not in a good way.  I was planning on picking up SUS Cerise but when I saw she was $33 I just walked away and figured I would wait to check Amazon then get her and have her price matched.  And I did see the other EAH dolls marked up as well.

Both the Venus and Jane I bought were marked $24.99 but rang up at $14.99. Two separate Targets.

Cleo and Jinafire are considered to be "deluxe" and therefore are priced at $24.99. The other three are considered "standard" and thus $14.99. It seems many Targets are only putting a Gloom n' Bloom tag out for the "deluxe" girls and giving the others a standard MH tag, creating a bit of confusion. It should be that way through most all Targets.

Now a larger box and a couple more accessories necessitating a $10 higher price tag is a discussion for a whole nother time...

The standard ones should actually be ringing up at $19.99. Don't know what's going on with the $14.99 business, you guys are lucky. They weren't ringing up for that here.

Yeah $14.99 is usually for the slim box dolls. I'm wondering if since Target likes to reuse DPCI numbers that these prices bouncing around is because something else is taking over that DCPI number.
