Bratz Basic Yasmin
Advantages: Reasonable price
Disadvantages: Can't mix and match across the board
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.
Summary: Great dolls for those who have out grown babie
