On the heels of the very popular Monster High series, Mattel has launched Ever After High – it is along the same lines as Monster High, but the dolls in the series are sons and daughters of famous fairy tale characters. Depending on the character they are also a Rebel or a Royal. Natalie recently used her birthday money to buy Briar Beauty, a Royal who is the daughter of Sleeping Beauty. Here are her photos and her thoughts/review.
Meet Briar Beauty, Briar is the gorgeous daughter of Sleeping Beauty! You can probably guess her flaw… Having trouble staying awake! She is trying as hard as she can to live her life to its fullest before her destiny becomes reality and she falls into a deep 100 year sleep. Briar is TOTALLY a fashionista, her least favorite subject is grimm-nastics because she has to wear the same outfit as everyone else! You can tell she is a royal… Not a rebel.
As all the Ever After High dolls, Briar comes with the basic stand (hers is rose pink) and key shaped hair brush. She also comes with a bookmark which you can unfold to find her journal entries!
Briar also comes with a black and silver purse(which sadly I can’t open), a black and pink rose bracelet, and a small pink ring! I am quite surprised that she hasn’t had the ring fall off yet.
On her chest, she has a unattachable necklace/sleeves piece. It all connects in the back with two little hooks. She also has really pretty silver earrings in. The necklace is very detailed and the rose sleeves are too cute!
On her head she is sporting an adorable pair of pink sunglasses. The top part is made to look like a tiara! Briar’s hair may be frizzy but its very smooth and easy to brush. One little braid or cute style will do the trick!
Moving on to shoes, Briar has a pair of sparkly pink heels! The straps on the heels have little spike detail to look like thorns on a rose bush, and of course they MUST have the adorable rose on them!
Briar has some grey tights with black accents. They work with the theme of roses so well! Her dress is a rose pink with black accents and is made out of a polyester fabric.
Briar has 11 points of articulation which sure does make her fun to play with!
I am sure you all wanted a comparison of the Monster High and Ever After High!
So I switched the girls shoes and found that Briar’s shoes was too big for Frankie! Frankie’s was too small for Briar. There go my dreams of seeing Briar walking around in those icicle boots…
Monster High can share clothes with Ever After High but while I was changing them I noticed Ever After High wasn’t as thin as Monster High. That makes the clothes a bit tight on our Ever After High.
Overall I love the new Ever After High dolls and can’t wait to see what they have for the coming year!
Are you a Rebel or a Royal? What do you think of the new Ever After High line?
