NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MGA Entertainment will shine the spotlight on new-for-spring developments for each of its mega-brands at New York International Toy Fair 2013.
The Bratz® dolls – Bratz has never been afraid to take risks and they're at it again! Cloe, Jade, Sasha and Yasmin are shaking things up with a 2-inch taller scale, while maintaining their now-ubiquitous beautiful and bold look. The Bratz dolls increase in size from their original 10-inch scale to a taller 12-inch frame allowing for a wider array of fashion design opportunities as well as enhanced articulation for increased playability. Ever since their earliest introduction in 2001, the Bratz dolls quickly set themselves apart as innovative, inspiring and independent and capturing the hearts of girls the world-over with their unique, almond-shaped eyes, innovative fashions, strong friendship and cutting-edge style. To help introduce the new taller Bratz dolls, MGA Entertainment will launch a special Real Bratz campaign showcasing girls that exemplify the dolls' commitment to taking charge and seeking positive change. So what is a Real Bratz girl? She is a leader, game changer and your best friend. She thinks outside the box, unleashes her passion to be who she is and creates her own path!
Bratz® Totally Polished™ brings fun and funky nail play to fashion dolls. Each doll comes with 12 adhesive reusable nails that match the Bratz girls' fashions. Real Bratz girls know that you don't just give up and that you keep trying until you are totally polished, and these nails will remind a Real Bratz Girl to never give up! Bratz characters for the Totally Polished line include Cloe™, Jade™, Yasmin™, Fianna™, Meygan™ and Sasha™.
Bratz® Sea Stunnerz™ brings mermaid style to fashion doll play in the Bratz way! Girls can transform their edgy Bratz dolls into a cool and classic mermaid look with graceful, long-flowing mermaid-style gowns. Each Bratz® Sea Stunnerz™ character comes with two mermaid-style and two shorter dress styles for mystical and magical transformations. Mermaids are known for their grace, beauty and as powerful woman with unique magical touches, just like Real Bratz Girls. Bratz®characters for the Bratz® Sea Stunnerz™ line include Cloe™, Yasmin™, Jade™ and Sasha™.
