But in either case, bugs are definitely more of a little kid thing than a tween/teen thing, which is what I think Lynda was saying.

That was my point.  The themes are more geared toward little kids.  I miss the more detailed Fearleading outfits, the more detailed prom dresses, etc.

I guess I didn't clarify myself well enough.  :(
I've since altered the title.  I just wish ppl would't try to resort to quick fixes like using hot glue (instead of a needle and thread) to "sew" clothes.  They don't last that long.

I got a retro check for a large amount, so I invested in Takara Jenny dolls.  I've gone from 20 to 60 dolls in 3 weeks.  I got some in "lots", ex. a set of 12 Jenny & friends, then a set of 4 boyfriend dolls.

I apologize about that.  I was thinking that some girls might be into bugs, but now I realize maybe that's more for boys?  I really don't know.

That is also true about G1 having some little girl type themes too, but they also had some themes geared more toward older girls.  JMO, but it seems like G2 has had nothing but themes for little kids.  *I could be wrong*
The biggest glaring problem for me is that characters like Ghoulia are missing bc she's too scary (or so I've heard).  Spectra is missing but they replaced her with Ari, so I'm not sure why that move was made.  Cleo, my fave, is still around but now she has molded wrappings.  But that's a personal beef.

Lastly, the lack of articulation has been especially disappointing.  The little siblings don't have much articulation (although I understand it might be more costly to do so). 

I was willing to give G2 a chance, and still am...even modified some dolls' eyes so they didn't look so big....but  the line now feels more like a variation of Barbie.  The creepy cool factor is almost gone.  The uniqueness is gone.  The whole line has changed.  There are hints of creepy cool here and there, but it's not as obvious as it was in the early days of G1.

G1 ended when G2 came along.  I agree with Carrehz, the new faces ruined it.  But not just that, the themes are all "little girl" focused....insects, fairies (or wings), the ice scream (?) pack, new family members...to me these are all playline Barbie type themes.  The molded on items did (and don't) do anything for me.  The toned down brightly colored clothes and accessories didn't work either.  And the overall "cheapening out" of the whole line was the final straw. I was afraid this would backfire on them, and it looks like I was right, sadly.

I completely agree.  I just wish there weren't so many ppl using it as an alternative to sewing.

I've been seeing a lot of videos on Youtube that show making "no sew" doll clothes with a hot glue gun, instead of sewing.  (That is, using glue instead of a needle & thread to put clothes together.) I know that some have made clothes with fabric glue, which dries out over time and leaves a stain.  Is hot glue any better?  Or safer?

Anything poop always confuses me.  Yeah, I laugh at the occasional toilet humor, but poo themed toys make no sense.  Can't forget that one "game"  Don't Step In It.  You're blind folded and have to avoid fake poop piles.
I agree!! I cannot stand anything poop themed.  I saw plungers shaped like the poop character (?) and I thought, this is SO GROSS. 
One toy I do not care for is the "Grossery Gang".  I think they're kinda like Garbage Pail Kids, except they have actual figures.  Are kids (boys in particular?) that into such things?  What's wrong with super-heroes, military figures, etc.???

I got some retro money in my paycheck, so after paying bills, I used some of it to get some Takara Jenny dolls, and a couple Palitoy Pippas.  Then I found a gorgeous quilt (king size) at Walmart for $25.  I love the oversized ones.

No problem....Mattel didn't really make that many pants or shorts for the ghouls.  Come to think of it, I don't see too many pants on Barbie either.

If they're for Howleen, would Bratz jeans work?  I know they don't have leggings but they have plenty of denim skirts and pants, and they're the right length for little sisters.  The regular ghouls can wear them too but they're a bit short.

If you don't mind altering a pair of Barbie size jeans, you could use those.  I know Sparkle Girlz outfits often have real denim shorts or leggings.  We have a tutorial on how to alter Barbie clothes to fit MH.

Definitely want to see dolls of Eyera, Jack O'Lantern,. Mantis boy and Skeleton boy.  Or any of Skelita's family. Also the short green haired girl (she has SDCC Iris' skintone).
