My Toys R Us aren't carrying the Little Miss Matched dolls any longer but they had a few of the fashion packs now on clearance for $3.20. For such a low price I wanted to see if the fashions would fit my largest doll body which is a Moxie Teenz.
They had several of this version and one fashion pack that had a romper and 3 shirts in it. I figured at least the pants would fit so I chose this one. Jordan will start the modeling but other body types make an appearance later.
One of the things that really interested me about these packs is the bold claim that 1 fashion pack can make 32 outfits! How?! I know that technically they are counting each sock as an individual fashion item, but c'mon. At most you can make 13-15 semi-reasonable combinations, but unless you consider going topless or bottomless an OUTFIT, or you are going to make a bikini out of each sock, there's no way. Now, if someone wants to prove me wrong, please do, because I surely want to see it.
The shoes are an absolute no go for any doll I own. They are kind of a blood red magenta color that I like, but I doubt I will ever own a doll with feet this big so they are going in my thrift bin.
Here are the REASONABLE combinations I got with this pack:
By necessity, the reversible dress is very thick, particularly at the shoulders, but it still shapes her body quite well. They did a great job on the sewing and the material is durable but nice to the touch.
If you put the pants on properly then they are high at the ankle. If you want them lower you have to fit the waist around her hip joints. Although the pants seem tight on her, they are a stretchy material and were easy to put on.
The top fits a little awkwardly, but only because it's not cut for her body shape. Still it closes fine in the back and the tiny piping around the shoulder seams is cool. Oy vey, these socks. I think they are neat, however, I would prefer that they actually matched... but that's just me.
I would never pair the dress with the pants, but I'm just showing one of the MANY combinations you could make <eye roll>. The bag is very nice. I mean, it's a little garish with the stripes and hearts, but another well made piece.
Oh my goodness, look at all these combinations! Tsk, please! I made 8 outfits and if I pushed it I could have gotten 4 more, regardless of how ridiculous they would have looked. Different socks does not mean you have changed your outfit, okay? It just doesn't. Socks are an accessory, not a main article of clothing. Still, I do love the socks so I'm going to get another one of these packs so I'll have 3 pairs of matching socks.
Cleo shows you how the clothes look on a Fashionista. The dress needs a belt to give her any definition, but otherwise, I'm surprised the clothes actually fit. They are not her style at all and kind of make her look matronly, which made me think to try them on...
Happy Family Grandma! Grandma is rockin' them, yo! I like them on her a lot. She looks like she came back from her social club meeting and then changed to take a leisurely walk around the neighborhood. If you've had a hard time outfitting your Happy Family Grandma, these clothes are perfect for her.
Given that multiple body types can wear these packs and they are a quality made product, I say snap them up if you see them (on sale, of course).
