Sparkle Girlz at Walmart
I was travelling all weekend and came across a Walmart that was selling dolls that my local stores don't carry. Well, I haven't been to my local ones in a while so maybe they do and I just don't know it yet. They are called the Sparkle Girlz - and don't get me started on this insistence to add "z" to the end of everything. Moxie Girlz, Bratz, Just Dreamz - enough.
Anyway, they certainly caught my attention. I was all, "Ooh, black dolls." Then I saw the price and was all, "$4.97?! Say, whut?!" The quality of the doll and its clothing is why it's $4.97, but still, that's a price point I can get behind.
I was pressed for time so I didn't fiddle with them as much as I wanted to, but I dunno, I think they are rather cute. They are very similar in production to the $5.00 Monster High clones you can get at Family Dollar. Could be the same company for all I know because I didn't check the back of the box. While I think there is a definite market for these dolls and the price is good, I still didn't buy one and probably wont. I just like that they are available.
