Those 5 shelf bookshelves they sell at Walmart work pretty good if you don't mind your shelves standing on the floor. One shelf has to be shorter by necessity but the rest are good heights for MH/EAH dolls.

If you want the French bulldog or kitty get the ketchup (not sure how the cat relates but Iíve seen an image of the cat with the empty ketchup package and Iíve seen people get the dog in the ketchup).

maybe it's because another name for ketchup is "catsup"? I dunno, it's all I can think of.

I think its because it has a fish patty on its head.

Yep, at least in Mexico, I saw both Apple and Maddie
I would show pictures, but photobuckets ate them.

I haven't seen them in sometime, so I assume that they sold out

Can you keep an eye out for Raven.

What ever happened to the toddler dolls? I know they didn't get released in the US but did they ever get released anywhere else?

Went to a TRU today, and was a bit disappointed to see MH reduced to ONLY FOUR FEET, which is easily the lowest I've ever seen. It shares an aisle with Descendants, two EAH products (the Alistaire/Bunny 2-pack and the School Playset, which I think TRU doesn't feel like reducing to clear), and about eight feet of DC Superhero Girls. And across from that is about twelve feet of TROLLS of all things. Did that movie even do well?

They just released a Holiday Special, are planning on a TV series, and have a sequel on the way so it must have. I know I enjoyed it.

I'm probably the odd one out here, but I actually really like the transforming Clawdeen. XD Don't get me wrong, I don't like the gimmick, but that molded top is really pretty and her shoes are awesome. The heels are howling wolves!

I found her on Amazon Warehouse Deals for fairly cheap, so I'm going to see if I can figure out any way to get the mask and everything off without completely destroying her.

EDIT: Success! She's been more-or-less de-gimmicked and is still intact! I still need to get the tail off, and there's a big hump on her back from the mechanism for the mask/ears. But I got the whole head-gear assembly off.



I'm rather embarrassed to say it took me a good 45 minutes to realize she didn't have the usual wolf ears as part of her head mold. XD

Here's the mask and ears detached. Wonder how they'd look on Wonder Wolf?

I actually think the mask and tail are fine, it's that huge furry fan thing that just makes her look odd.

Is that about right?

Littlest Pet Shop - I think the current one with the Twilight Sparkle-coloured dog is the first reboot? LPS was a thing when I was small

Pound Puppies - I think this has been rebooted?

Biker Mice from Mars - This WAS a reboot but it was more a sequel. It was utterly atrocious; villains were obvious and stupid, animation hideous, turned a beloved one-off character into a sick joke, and the fact it had all original cast/writers just broke my heart even further. I pretend it doesn't exist for my sanity.

Puppy in my Pocket - ... Something tells me this got one. I remember the one from MY childhood, but I have a feeling this had a short-lived reboot


There's been several reboots for LPS. The original LPS was in the 90s and the one with the Twilight Sparkle colored dog is not even the current one nor is it the first one. The first reboot was back in 2006 and the most current one has multiple sizes and a series currently running on YouTube with a new cast.

As for the Rainbow Brite reboot, I think the most current one had potential but then they only released the episodes on their own exclusive subscription streaming service and never released any merch in the new style, sticking with retro styles for all merch.

I just hope these siblings end up in stores and not Amazon only.

How tall is Alivia? She looks taller than the other kid sisters (Pawla, etc) but it could just be the photo.. makes me wonder how tall Howleen is too, if she's the same height as before or if she's shorter now.

I think they are both the same height as Kelpie.

I like her pet's face but I'm not sure what's with that weird bit above her right eye.. was it meant to be painted, or..? It just looks odd.

Her pet is supposed to be pieced together like she is.

Toys R Us had not a single MH in sight. I guess that Walmart and Target are the only ones selling MH now?

That's weird. The one near me has more than any other store in the area.

I didn't see a single one. Only DC superhero girls dolls, Descendants, and Regal acadamy. Sadly, no MH. :|

Is the store near you a smaller store? Like I dunno if it's the same with TRU but I do know with Staples my smaller store doesn't carry everything the bigger stores do.

It looks like it's not happening.

This really worries me for the future of MH. Hasbro would have probably treated it like LPS while Mattel will probably just treat it like My Scene.

Honestly, I'm not sure that Hasbro would've kept MH.  I kind of think that they would've scrapped or sold it along with EAH and any other dying brands.

Remember that when Hasbro "took over" LPS, they had actually always owned them.  Hasbro acquired Kenner in 1991 when they purchased its parent company Tonka, under which it operated as a division.  So when LPS was released in 1992, it already belonged to Hasbro.
In 2000, Hasbro closed the Kenner division and merged all of Kenner's brands under the Hasbro umbrella.

In a situation where a company acquires another company that has multiple under-performing brands already on the market, I'm not sure that the purchasing company would invest heavily in trying to save those brands.
In fact, I seem to remember reading that this is exactly what Hasbro did when they bought Tonka.  They sold off any brands that weren't performing well on the market and focused their attentions on the successful brands.

I think the difference is they know MH was a top performing brand and has the potential to be one again. It's not like EAH which never quite caught on outside of collectors.

The only Black Friday MH deal this year is that Walmart has the Emoji dolls for $5. That's literally it.

In the advertised sales, you mean? Iím still hoping weíll see some discounts on the actual day... Iíd love to get a deal on those new ballet dolls...

If this is indeed the end for MH (at least for now), then Iím glad it had a good, strong run. There have been many gorgeous dolls released, and I treasure the ones Iíve collected since the brand launched in 2010. Things come and go... I will still look forward to what the future of fashion dolls brings. :)

I just hope when the last hurrah happens it's not like with EAH where the only place to snag them is on Amazon.

I think most things would stay the same. Both companies have their share of QC issues so that probably won't change. The existing lines and people will probably stay the same as long as they are successful. Hasbro is better about rebooting multiple times instead of letting brands die out like they do with LPS so MH might "safe" if somewhat unrecognizable.

Unfortunately Hasbro has tons of distribution issues. They let stores order way too much of a wave and then end up skipping the next wave in the US due to lack of orders.

If this is a Walmart 4 pack I hope it doesn't end up like the Maul 5 Pack where it only ends up in Mexico and Canada. The Ice Scream 4 pack showed up in July but there's no sign of this pack at all and it's already November.
