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.

Monster High & Ever After High @ the NY Toy Fair

It’s time for the 2014 New York Toy Fair, the “largest toy and youth product marketplace in the Western Hemisphere”; many of the big toy companies make a showing and reveal new products at this event.

There’s plenty of people who’ve been reporting on the toy fair, so I’m just going to compile the best photos I could find of the stuff that interests me personally, as well as give an overall rundown on what we can expect from these toy lines for 2014 (photos should all click through to the original source).  This particular post is going to cover Monster High and Ever After High, sister lines from Mattel.
