Materials Monday: Customizing Rainbow High neck pegs

Posted by on

Most dolls have a neck peg that allows their head to turn and pivot slightly up/down so that they can cock their heads as well.  It's so minor it's not something you even really notice... until it's gone! Rainbow High dolls heads only turn side to side.  They do not pivot.  This is not thaaaat big a deal, except their heads are slightly upturned so you can't have them looking at the camera from straight on.

Doll Review: Na!Na!Na! Pom Surprise

Posted by on

Na!Na!Na! Pom Surprise (do I call them Pom dolls or Na!Na!Na! dolls?) Have been out since about 12/2019, but their boxes are completely opaque so I while I remember seeing them when I wandered through the doll aisles, I had no idea what they were until a friend of mine sent me pics of hers. And I wanted to squeeze one. So here we are! *Ahem* Na!Na!Na! Pom Surprise dolls are another new line by MGA of Bratz fame and more recently LOL Surprise.  MGA is not afraid of innovation, and is pretty on point for spotting trends.  Pom dolls...
