Rainy Day, Cowgirl and Camping $8.97
I like these themed sets a lot. For the cost, I'm impressed with their efforts and details. Though, of course, not as well made quality wise, as say a Moxie themed set, they still offer you playability and decent fashions. The Rainy Day one is my favorite and it gives me such a Parisian vibe.
Fairy Tale Collection $22.88
I am not a "Princess" person, so these do nothing for me, but I think a kid under 4 might like them. However, a kid older than that is probably more brand name aware and might turn their nose up at a Disney-ish clone.
Princess with Horse $16.97
There were 4 different versions of the doll, but the horse is the same in each pack. $16.97 seems a tad hefty to me, but you are getting a horse, a doll and a pretty cute dress. If you ever wanted to build yourself a carousel, then a bunch of these horses is the way to go.
A Pack of Trouble - Wolf Family $45.97
$46?! Oh my goodness. I know that only equates to $11.50 per doll, but dang. I dunno, I'm just not feeling it and Clawd having one hand posed in a rad sign looks a little awkward to me.
Day/Night Dreamhouse Fashions $11.97
Hmm. I like some pieces as separates but overall, my fashion tastes lean more toward the simplistic wear that Sparkle Girlz produce. I would like the cat shirt if it didn't have "Barbie" on it. I like the black and white stripped pants and I like the metallic silver and purple dress. That "Fab!" pack looks like something the Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Nicki Minaj would wear on a date in 1990.
Style Fashion with Doll $8.88
I'm not gonna lie, I do like the dress with the hot pink top and black bottom. However, I still dislike the direction Mattel took the Fashionista's and then they turned them into these non articulated mannequins. Barf.
Ken Gift Set - Walmart Exclusive $19.97
Wow, I could not believe this was only $20. At best you can find individual Ken clothing packs for $5.97. So if you buy this, you'll be getting a doll and an extra jacket for only $2 more. That's a darn good bargain, especially if you compare it to the girl's pack also available.
Barbie Gift Set - Walmart Exclusive $29.97
Granted the Barbie set comes with stickers, but whoop-dee-do. I guess she's more expensive because she's "Barbie" and has actual hair.
Barbie Glam Camper $89.97 versus Kid Connection Camper $19.97
$90 mother freaking bucks. I mean, it's got a lot of stuff in it, so don't get me wrong, but you can buy the Monster High High School for $70! If you've got the funds, more power to ya, but if you're a broke bee like me, the Kid Connection Camper might be more your speed.
True, it's a little sedate and rather plain, but it will get you where you are going and probably with reasonable gas mileage.
It does not have a pool though, lol!
But if you insist on being fancy, the Glam Camper is the way to go.
I was feeling good about finding all this cool stuff and then I get to checkout and had this conversation:
A-hole Clerk mutters: "I didn't know people still bought Barbie stuff."
Surprised Muff says: "Excuse me?"
A-hole Clerk repeats: "I didn't know people still bought Barbie stuff."
Ticked off Muff says: "Well, they still make it so why wouldn't people buy it?!"
A-hole Clerk just shrugs.
I wanted to snatch that trick's twists off her head. Why cant clerks keep their negativity to themselves? Ugh!
