Fashion Madness Denise and Others Found at Wal-Mart

Friend of Fashion Madness Kenya, Denise was found at Wal-Mart. This basic version is $9.97.  Her arms are not jointed but her knees are.   She looks much better in person than in her online pictures.  I immediately removed her from the box for a full examination.

The dress quality is good and her black T-strap high-heels are a nice complement. 

Her round, Teresa Giudice hairline looks a little awkward, but there's always a quick remedy.

I removed the rubber band that kept the sides of her hair pulled back in a ponytail.  The looser style helps conceal her round hairline.  Since the basic dolls do not come with earrings, I added a pair of studs.

I was happy there was a Denise at Wal-Mart that I liked.  There were others for $14.97 that came with an accessory and probably had earrings.   The $14.97 dolls use some of Kenya's fashions and themes.  For example, Movin' On Denise is dressed in part of  Movin' On Kenya's outfit, minus the leopard coat. There were at least two other basic dolls.  One of the other basic dolls wore a summery white top and blue pencil skirt.

My Movin' On Kenya welcomed Denise with open arms; but after waiting nearly a year for her to arrive, she had a question for her.

Kenya:  Girl, what took you so long to get here?

Denise:  It's a long story, but bottom line, I got held up in China.  There were a few production issues and last minute changes that delayed my arrival to the States.

Kenya:  Sounds like you've been through a lot, but I'm glad you're here now.

 Denise:  Yeah, the wait was pretty frustrating, but I'm glad I'm here now, too. 

In unison:  Now if those big headed boys and Keyshia would arrive, the wait would be over.


TJ, Dwayne, and Keyshia were not available at my Wal-Mart.  Hopefully they will arrive soon, but I did find the following Kelly-size Little Princess Sparkle Girlz by Funville.

There were several different versions (clothing wise) and it appears there are two complexions, medium and dark. I purchased two medium and two dark.  I'll keep two and give two away.

The complexion difference can be seen better in the image above.

Both have black rooted hair pulled back into a ponytail.

The ones I did not buy had a shorter ponytail, the ends of which were tucked under the rubber band that holds it in place. 

In the following comparison photo with two original Kellys, Little Princess's over-sized head is more noticeable.

Feet comparison:  Kelly's feet are longer and wider.

Body Comparison:  Little Princess has a longer torso and a wider stance than Kelly. 

For $2.47, I couldn't resist buying the four I purchased.
