WHAT IS IT?
A Yasmin Bratz doll that is sold to you as a basic variety and that means Yasmin is wearing more down to earth clothes than some of the other Yasmin dolls.
Yasmin is wearing jeans, a pink top, a military design jacket and a pair of black shoes. The feet come off the doll like other Bratz so that your child can change them. I think this is better than having a lot of tiny doll shoes because the feet are quite big so they will not be lost as easy as doll shoes. The hair on the doll is very long and looks beautiful even though it has been played with a lot, my daughter brushes the hair often with the hair brush that comes with the doll. The doll is 25cm tall and the legs and arms move and bend very naturally so that you can sit her down or make her do other things that need her to be flexible.
WHAT I THINK
I bought this Yasmin doll for my daughter for her birthday because she likes Bratz dolls and Barbie also, one of the reasons I chose this doll was because my daughter has got an outfit that is very much the same so I thought that this would be a good doll for her. I like that my daughter can undress this doll and all of the other Bratz clothes fit it because little girls love to change the outfits on their dolls.
The quality of this Yasmin doll is very good and that shows because the hair and painted facial features look the same as when I bought it even though my daughter plays with it a lot and keeps all of her dolls together in a box that is a bit too small so they are very cramped up together. She has not lost the feet but it does not care very much if she does because she has got a lot of the Bratz feet and they all fit all of the dolls, but it is obvious that we try not to lose them.
I like this Yasmin doll and think it is good that she is so flexible because my daughter can play many different games with her. She gets bored with her Barbie dolls because of their arms and legs only moving a little bit and I think Yasmin is a lot more versatile.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
I remember being obsessed with bratz dolls when they first hit the market, I had to have everything, the pad, the cars the catwalk. However since going through high school and graduating I've not really heard much more about the Bratz dolls until it was my younger cousin's birthday a few months back. She had just turned 10 and I remember from my childhood that I prefered Bratz over Barbie at that age due to the promotion of them having more 'style' and 'attitude', so I thought I'd take my chances and see if she thought the same.
Yasmin was my favorite of the main dolls, mainy due to her more subtle and quirky style, one of the reasons I chose to present this doll to my cousin. Not much has changed, the newer versions are in different styled boxes (still remaining difficult to actually get the doll out!) and have more up to date clothing to remain relevant in the market.
The fashion doll comes with one main outfit, the doll with detachable feet and a brush to help maintain the quality and cleanliness of the doll. The total cost comes to £12.99 which I feel is pretty good value considering I used to pay up to £30 per doll when they were first out. The doll is pretty flexible with joints that move and enable you to position the doll in serious poses during play, for example you are able to adjust the doll to cross their legs and sit/drive cars, which is a very convenient aspect for the older children who like to play with their dolls in a more realistic way.
A great thing about Bratz dolls is that you can easily change their clothes and style. The feet of the dolls pop off and and you can pop a different foot (with a different shoe on it) back into place. The one disadvantage of this is that if you have a collection of different dolls such as chloe and sasha (who have different skin tones) you cannot mix and match the feet, however you can buy clothing/shoe sets seperately to allow several choices for a particular doll.
My cousin loved this doll just as much as I did when I was her age and I think that Bratz dolls are a perfect choice for the older girls who feel that barbies arent 'cool' anymore. I've never had a problem with these dolls breaking or snapping, and my little cousin's is still going strong, I think that despite the initial cost of £13, the dolls are worth it as they last long and give many different opportunities for play.
