In the time that the Moxie Teenz have been available I have found ONE (1) extra outfit for my Tristen. I found the nightie with the cute little pink booties and the huge-ass overnight bag which Tristen could use as a mace if she were my size. According to the Teenz’ website there are several other outfits, accessory packs, and extra wigs available, but I have yet to find any.
Now I have in my possession the Lalaloopsy Blossom Flowerpot (see prior entry). According to Amazon.com and Lalaloopsy’s Facebook page there are several extra outfits available for them as well. I’ve seen exactly one (1), that being a set of black pajamas with a skeleton printed on them. I did not have a Lalaloopsy at the time and thus did not buy the pajamas. In that time I have seen no other extra outfits, and if Lalaloopsies follow in the footsteps of the Moxie Teenz I may end up wishing I’d bought those pajamas.
On a side note, I’ve noticed that MGA’s other two lines of dolls (Bratz and Moxie Girls) have plenty of fashionable options to choose from. I’ll admit that the Bratz no longer have the extensive wardrobe that they had when I was a teenager (and when Bratz were in their heyday) but they still have a lot more than the Moxie Teenz and the Lalaloopsies. Perhaps I’m just jumping to conclusions; after all, Lalaloopsy dolls are EXTREMELY popular and it could just be that the fashion packs are being snapped up by kids who own the dolls. Which is fair, since these dolls are intended to by toys for children and not collectors’ items for greedy hogs like myself. In the case of the Moxie Teenz, perhaps MGA is not satisfied with their performance and is slowly phasing them out? If so then that’s a shame, because the Moxie Teenz are quite capable of being a poor woman’s ball-jointed doll. I’ll explain why in another blog entry…
To the folks at MGA Entertainment (if you should happen to read this), you have adorable products that I have been buying since I was sixteen years old (I’m twenty-four now, as I’ve specified before). I complement you on the detail of Lalaloopsy clothes and on the overall awesomeness of the Moxie Teenz, and I congratulate your success with both Lalaloopsy and Bratz. I hope that in the future outfits for both dolls will be easier to find in stores, since I cannot afford the prices on Amazon.com. I also hope that the Moxie Teenz are not being phased out, because they are getting harder and harder to find and they’re really super dolls. Sometimes they’re a little flimsy (mine has a defective elbow) but they’re cool nonetheless.
