Review: C.A. Cupid – EAH doll

20140530_122126

C.A. Cupid (full name Chariclo Arganthone Cupid) started out as a Monster High character.  In that world she was a bone elemental and is the adopted daughter of Eros, the god of erotic love in Greek mythology (weird choice for a kid’s toy line, eh?). Her doll was introduced in the Monster High world near the end of 2011 as a Wal-Mart exclusive in the Sweet 1600 line, and she was part of the cast until early 2013, when she became the crossover character to Ever After High.

Review: Legacy Day Raven Queen – EAH doll

Legacy Day Raven Queen is one doll that I’ve been waiting for a long time to buy; the LD dolls are priced quite high (~$35 in Canada) and I could never find one that had both good facial screening and a good outfit.  The initial releases of LD Raven all had bodices that were sewn so tight that the fabric was cracked and I thought it looked really bad, especially for such a pricey doll.  So when I finally stumbled across one that had a perfect dress, I snapped her up as quick as I could despite the doll being full price and having a bit of eye wonk (big thanks to Mr. Nerd for buying her for me! ^^).

(Of course, now that I’ve opened the doll, all the new ones on the shelves have un-stretched dresses, so I acted much too quickly and missed out on some great sales that would have got me this doll for almost half of what my husband paid.  These are the difficult lessons of a collector. XD)

As I mentioned in my initial Ever After High post (and if you’re somehow not familiar with EAH, go read that one first), Raven Queen is the daughter of the Evil Queen from the Snow White fairy tale, and on Legacy Day at Ever After High, Raven’s supposed to pledge herself to her destiny and commit to being the next evil queen.

In case anybody reading is new to Ever After High, it’s a sister franchise to Mattel’s wildly popular Monster High, featuring the teenaged children of classic fairy tale characters who either embrace or rebel against their “destiny” to follow in their parents’ footsteps.  Raven Queen is the main character – she’s the daughter of the evil queen from Snow White, though she herself isn’t evil at all.

Doll Review: Ever After High – Cerise Hood

20131121_094236Let me warn you right now – there are some spoilers in this review, though I can’t imagine anyone who’s interested in these dolls doesn’t know this stuff already; it doesn’t hurt to mention it just in case though I suppose.

Doll Review: Ever After High – Blondie Lockes

Blondie Lockes is the daughter of Goldilocks, from the classic tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  She can’t resist hot porridge, wants everything to be “just right,” and she has a natural magical ability to open locked doors.  Blondie also considers herself a journalist and runs a “mirrorcast” called Just Right; she’s also known to insist that she’s descended from royalty.  Her doll is part of the second wave of Ever After High signature character dolls, along with Cerise Hood.
