The Bottom Line:

The Good: pretty doll, full hair, new body, nice fashion

The Bad: no articulation

The Verdict: for selfish reasons I suggest everyone buy Fashionista #51 (Polka Dot Fun), because I want Mattel to keep making more Curvy barbies. she is a lovely doll in her own right though, so if you collect playline you will probably be happy with her.

Tall Fashionista, Boho Fringe giftset, review

I was thrilled when I happened to notice that tall fashionista barbie Boho Fringe showed up as a lightening deal and ordered her as fast as I could. I think she's really pretty and she has some of the best looking fashions to come out in the line so far.

The Bottom Line:

The Good: pretty doll, lots of mix and match fashion items

The Bad: no articulation, first dress is one sided

The Verdict: if you enjoy playline dolls with extra fashions, Boho Fringe would be an excellent buy, even at full price. just ignore the first dress, and everything else is wonderful. I'm sure kids would love her too.

The Bottom Line:

The Good: pretty doll, extra fashions and shoes

The Bad: no articulation

The Verdict: I feel pretty good about the price I paid for Tall Lacey Blue giftset barbie, but she's probably not going to be popular with adult collectors. I'm sure kids will love her though.
