|LR: The first four photographed were Fireside Chatting (D), Rock Star (M), Vegas (L but possibly M), Movin On (L)|
Fireside Chatting is dressed in a holiday fashion and has straight hair. Rock Star has a pink guitar and textured hair. Vegas wears a white faux fur coat and hat and has curly hair. Moving On has textured hair, wears eyeglasses, and sports a leopard print coat.
|Vegas and Movin On were captured again in this image; the fifth doll photographed is Riviera Kenya (D)|
|The sixth doll on the far right is Beverly Hills (D); Vegas and Rock Star make another appearance in this photo.|
Beverly Hills is dressed in a black and white polka dot suit with aqua top and hat.
The heads and hands are soft vinyl. Rigid plastic was used for the arms, legs, and body. The elbows, wrists, and knees are articulated. The waist is not. A nude image of Riviera Kenya can be viewed on Ms. Leo's blog. The quality of the clothing and accessories is decent. I wasn't expecting the dolls to retail for $20, however.
Because of her eyeglasses and tightly textured tresses, Movin On Kenya is the only one of the 12-inch girls that came home with me. I also liked her fashion the best.

Also in stock at Family Dollar were the six different 6-1/2-inch Kenya Mini Hair Madness dolls. Their accessories include a hair pick and a package of rubber bands and beads for styling the dolls' rooted hair.

The other Kenya Minis are illustrated on the back of Day Dreamer's box:

I need a medium complexion and a dark complexion Kenya Fashion Madness. Since Rock Star appears to be the lone medium complexion doll, I'll buy her eventually even though her hairstyle is almost identical to the one I purchased. Riviera may be the one I will purchase to represent the warmest complexion Kenya, particularly since her head shot appears on each doll's booklet.
I asked the store manager about Denise, TJ, and Keyshia, the dolls shown on the back of Movin On Kenya's box. She indicated there was more stock to put out and suggested I check back. A second Family Dollar only had the six girls described above and the minis. The friends may or may not have been released yet.
|Vegas Kenya is shown on the back of Movin On Kenya's box along with her best friend, Denise; boyfriend TJ, and little sister Keyshia. These were not in stock at Family Dollar.|
