I, for one, love dolls and have been a collector of them since I was a little girl. Unfortunately, due to having two girls and now limited storage space in our house, I have had to forgo picking up new dolls to store or display. But, thanks to a review opportunity from the kind folks at JAKKS Pacific, they sent along the Maleficent Collector's Doll (the character Angelina Jolie starred as) for me to review and share with you, which I am displaying on a shelf in our family room with a couple other prized dolls I have picked up over the years.
Once my girls get older, I will pass my fashion doll collection down to them, so that they can enjoy and display when they have their own place. My poor girls were so upset when I told them that they could only hold the box or look at it on the shelf, as they really wanted to take it out of the box and play with it. They were intrigued by the dimensional black wings, which are not removable, as well as the flowing jet black hair and breathtaking horn headpiece. Luckily, they are getting older and understand how I like to collect items including dolls, due to their beauty. And, the new Maleficent Collector Fashion dolls from JAKKS Pacific falls under this category.
Even if you are not a fan of Angelina Jolie, you can't help but admire her beauty, and this is replicated and put on display in this fashion doll. I can't get over how life-like it looks, and how spot on to the features of Angelina Jolie, including her strong cheekbones, this doll has. It is truly a gorgeous doll, and one that doll collectors will love. Non-doll collectors, including younger fans of the movie will enjoy playing with the Maleficent Collector Fashion doll, as well as the Aurora Collector Fashion doll.
"Bring home the magic of Disney’s Maleficent with this gorgeous 11.5” Maleficent Collector Fashion Doll. Maleficent wears her black gown with glitter accents and dimensional black wings which feature golden accents. With long raven hair and delicate horns with intricate detailing, this Maleficent Collector Fashion Doll is authentic to the Maleficent film."
"Children and collectors alike will love the beautiful Aurora Collector Fashion Doll. This gorgeous 11.5 inch collectible fashion doll features Aurora’s signature golden gown and long, stunning train with detailed accents. With flowing golden hair and floral crown with intricate detailing, the Aurora Collector Fashion Doll is truly authentic to the Maleficent film."
Like the video above shares, the two Maleficent Collector Fashion dolls offer more detail and hair that can be combed, while the basic Maleficent dolls, although also beautiful, don't come with hair or things like the breathtaking wings and black gown with glitter accent found on the Maleficent doll, or the flowing train and detailed accents including the floral crown, as seen on the Aurora Collector's doll.
I only saw this movie recently, after receiving the doll in the mail to review. Now, I can see why so many people loved the movie and went out to the store thereafter to pick up these dolls, as well as the cosplay costumes for their kids and themselves to play dress up with.
I am always amazed at the selection of dolls that the folks at Jacks Pacific creates to go hand in hand with popular Disney releases, including their Frozen and Disney Princess dolls. My girls love carrying around their Anna and Elsa dolls, as well as cuddle up with their Ariel and Belle dolls when it comes to Disney movie night in our house. I can't wait to see what they come up with next, especially with the holidays fast approaching. :-) This is one toy website I frequent to stay up-to-date on new product additions and to get ideas for gift ideas for my girls.
