The daughter of Sleeping Beauty, Briar Beauty doll will seize this Legacy Day in spellbinding fashions and ornate accessories — all adding a modern edge to her storybook look!

An Enchanting Outfit for Legacy Day

This adventurous princess is embracing her Royal life — the glamour, the parties, and (of course) the fashions! She shows off her fableous sense of style in a gorgeous gown that features silvery details and her signature colors of pink and black. The shimmery bodice flares into a layered skirt with a print of roses and thorns, while the sheer black cape with matching pattern makes this hexquisitely detailed outfit a dream come true!

Briar Beauty doll sweetly accessorizes her Royal ensemble with a detailed necklace, earrings, rose purse, and matching strappy heels. For the crowning touch, a beautiful headpiece sits atop her wavy, pink-streaked hair. She also comes with a doll hairbrush, doll stand, and a book that opens to store accessories (hers and the girl's!).

Are your children into the Ever After High web series, which Mattel started back in July 2013.  I first found out about this series and its characters, which are based upon fairy tale and fantasy story characters from my 10 yr. old niece.  She heard about it from friends at school and had to check it out.  After the first webisode, she was hooked, as was my 8 yr. old niece and most recently my oldest daughter, Savannah.  

In addition to the webisodes which you can watch on YouTube, Mattel also released a line of Ever After High dolls for fans to collect.  There was a also a couple books by the same name available for fans to pick up and continue reading about characters like Raven Queen and Apple White.

If you are unfamiliar with the Ever After High story line, and have children 6+, you will want to check out the webisodes. After watching them myself, I can see why my nieces and daughter are so into this group of teenage fairytale characters.  

Like I said, in addition to this webisodes you can watch online, Mattel has also released dolls and other Ever After High merchandise for fans of the show.  I was recently sent the )EVER AFTER HIGH™ LEGACY DAY™ BRIAR BEAUTY™ from Mattel to review.  I will not lie, after seeing this doll up close, I wanted to leave it in the box and save it as a collector's item.  Wow, have they come a long way since I was a child playing with dolls.  The features on this doll and others in the doll line are simply stunning. I was never a fan of the oval faced dolls, with stick thin bodies.  At least with the )EVER AFTER HIGH™ LEGACY DAY™ BRIAR BEAUTY™, the dolls have a much rounder face and thicker limbs.  As for the outfits, again stunning with all the beautiful colors, embellishments and fine detailing, you can tell a lot went into designing not only the dolls by the clothes they wear.

What's in the Box?

Each of the posable dolles in the )EVER AFTER HIGH™ LEGACY DAY™ series include ornate crowns and luxe capes, as well a doll stand, doll hairbrush and book to store all the accessories in.  Oh, how I wish I could have saved this doll for myself, but Savannah caught a glimpse of me taking it out of the box early last week and just had to take a peak for herself.  And, once she saw Briar Beauty in her crown-to-toe hexquisite Legacy Day outfit, including the black rose-detailed gown, she wanted to hold it and look at it up close.  Once Bella saw Savannah looking at the )EVER AFTER HIGH™ LEGACY DAY™ BRIAR BEAUTY™ in the box, she, too, wanted to hold it.  

I told the girls that if they took a nap, that they could play with it.  And, within minutes, they grabbed their blankets and fell fast asleep on the couch.  As soon as they woke up, they made a b-line for the dining room table where the )EVER AFTER HIGH™ LEGACY DAY™ BRIAR BEAUTY™ was waiting for them, and eagerly awaited for me open the box and hand the doll and all her accessories to them.  

Shortly after my girls started to play with the )EVER AFTER HIGH™ LEGACY DAY™ BRIAR BEAUTY™ doll, my niece arrived home from school and joined in the fun.  And, for the rest of the afternoon, as well as the days that followed, my girls had a blast playing with )EVER AFTER HIGH™ LEGACY DAY™ BRIAR BEAUTY™ doll, just one of three dolls avaiable.  You can also purchase the EVER AFTER HIGH™ LEGACY DAY™ APPLE WHITE™ and EVER AFTER HIGH™ LEGACY DAY™ RAVEN QUEEN™ Dolls from Mattel.

With Easter just a few short weeks away, why not consider picking up one of the three EVER AFTER HIGH™ LEGACY DAY™ dolls for your Ever After High fan in your house.  Since receiving the EVER AFTER HIGH™ LEGACY DAY™ BRIAR BEAUTY™ and falling in love with the doll and all its amazing features, I made a point this weekend to pick up Raven Queen and Apple White to surprise my girls with in their Easter baskets.  And, who knows, maybe I will get lucky and be able to play dolls with them, and enjoy these cute dolls that I wish were around back in the day, as they would have been a blast to play with.  :-)
