New Tulabelles for 2015

image

Tulabelle is back, and she looks a little different. Actually, she looks a lot different. Integrity Toys’ teen fashion blogger has grown up, and she’s got a new face mold to show for it. For 2015, her third season, the 16″ Tulabelle has gone from teen to a twenty-something young lady. But does the new facemold do her justice?

I’m a big fan of Tulabelle. I reviewed dolls from the first and second seasons and I absolutely loved her. Sadly, though, I’m not crazy about her new look. I personally feel that Integrity has ruined Tulabelle. The original Tulabelle looked sophisticated yet sweet, but the new face mold ages her beyond her twenty-something years and makes her look haughty. Integrity already has their “haughty supermodel” lines of dolls with the Fashion Royalty and FR16 collections. I loved Tulabelle because she was a breath of fresh air. Now I’m a little sad that the Tulabelle I love has changed. New Tulabelle’s fashions are just as fabulous as ever (I particularly like Mod-ern Love and Sweet Tartan), but the new face mold is a deal-breaker for me. And the Wicked and Divine Tulabelle reminds me of Miley Cyrus, which is a little unsettling!

Are you a Tulabelle fan? What do you think of her new look?

    I don’t have any Tulabelle dolls, but I did like her sweet look. Now she does look similar to most of Integrity’s other dolls: haughty and unhappy. Plus, she does look older than in her twenties, depending on the doll. Do you think that bug pin and envelope purse in Sweet Tartan look way out of scale for the doll?

      I did think the bug pin was too large, but I guess they couldn’t make it any smaller. I do think it’s adorable though, and I’ll be checking ebay to see if anyone lists just the Sweet Tartan outfit.
