When I was a little girl I had hundreds of barbies. I loved Barbie. She had everything and could be anything. However, the one thing I had noticed is that Barbie was a "one shape" kinda gal. No matter who she was she was a blonde haired blue eyed woman of odd proportions. My mother wasn't shaped like her. As a grown up I'm not shaped like her. I don't know anyone who is. Even her skin tone left something lacking. There were few options in that department as well. So when I saw the new options for Barbie dolls I was very excited. In a world that is constantly changing my children finally have something I wish I had as a little girl. My five year old was thrilled when I showed her the new Barbie fashionista line. She browsed the many beautiful dolls til she found the one she liked best. With so many skin tones, sizes, hairstyles, and outfits it's easy to see how any little girl could find a doll to love.
My little girl picked the VA-VA-Violet doll. I think she was excited about the purple hair. Upon receiving the doll I examined her very carefully. All the materials are sturdy and good quality. Just as you would expect from Barbie. I like the fact that her clothes are modest and not too revealing. Something I try to teach my child. I was also very happy to see that her body was much more proportionate. She has a more realistic shape. The purple hair is fun. It's become more common to see people with colored hair nowadays. My little girl says she is a rock and roll Barbie. She loves it. Overall I feel this is a doll any little girl would love to have or play with. The kid in me wants to play too.
I honestly think that these new dolls deserve five stars all the way. What a great way to show our girls that the world comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors. I would highly recommend this doll to anyone.

I wish I could post pictures of what I received. I noticed another reviewer listed too much gel as a con, but I would argue it's more like too much glue. I feel like gel I could have brushed out, but my doll's hair arrived glued down to her head. Forget about the nice, voluminous bob she sports in the picture. Think of how your hair looks when wet: plastered to your head. That's what I received. It was so coated that I couldn't pick out individual strands, but her hair moved in large glued together chunks.

Customer service was very nice about issuing me a voucher for a replacement, which cannot be used for online purchases. She's only available on their online store (as of now). Of course, I'm not sure I'd want to buy a replacement without seeing it first for fear of receiving a doll with the same problem. Knowing that, I'll probably take my chances trying to wash the glue out.

Other than the severe glue helmet she's sporting, the rest of her is an average Barbie. I wish her limbs articulated.

My 3 yr old granddaughter saw this Barbie on TV & it was unavailable in the store. I ordered it for an express shipment & received it by 4 pm the next day. Thanks Toys R US! You are a life saver!

      Comments about Mattel Girls Barbie Fashionistas Doll 18 Va-Va-Violet - Original:

      I love the trendy look of this Violet doll, and my daughter loves her as well. The purple hair is awesome, because this doll still looks like a normal, down to earth girl - with purple hair. Most other barbies that I've seen with colored hair came from more of a fantasy style - mermaids, fairy tales, ect. I love her outfit, she looks trendy yet modest. She has a cute A-line cut. In the box it looks flat, but once you get her out and comb her hair, it gains some body and shape. She's made from the same quality material that we expect from a Barbie doll. Tons of fun to be had with her, and I love that they are incorporating body diversity with this new line. I think a lot of kids, and parents will like her!

      This doll is a regular Barbie. I love how they added colored hair. They doll has in trend fashions. My only concern was they had they hair gelled and I had to brush it out to look normal. This doll has a lot of detail!!

      Comments about Mattel Girls Barbie Fashionistas Doll 18 Va-Va-Violet - Original:

      Va-Va-Violet is a cute option in the Barbie Fashionistas line. I like that she is not your typical Barbie doll, with her violet hair and trendy outfit. The only problem I have with this doll is her hair inside and when you get her out of her box. It seems as though it is heavily hair sprayed down, but I am sure that can be fixed! I just would've liked her hair to look more like it did in the picture rather than hair sprayed down. Overall, I think this is a neat Barbie line and enjoy he product that I received to review!

          My daughters and I love everything about this Barbie. I looks exactly like the picture and the clothes are so well made! We have seen similar dolls at Target but I haven't been able to pick any up for them. My youngest the 7year old loved the purple hair and the cute skirt, but it was the 9 year old who was really attracted to it. She plays with her in the Barbie corvette and camper. She also likes to role play with her and her monster high dolls We love the vintage dimple trait Barbie had when I was younger, it was a real conversation starter.

              My daughter who is 6 years old was thrilled when she got to play with this barbie. This barbie has light purple hair that really pops and gives it personality. Her aunt (my sister) colors her hair with colors similar to this barbie and my daughter loves it. When we opened the package, her hair looked really flat so my daughter and I brushed her hair and it became fuller. The necklace that comes on her doesn't come off which can be a great thing (won't get lost) and not so good thing (can't share with other barbies). No complaints from my daughter though. Also, she comes with some awesome combat boots that were easy enough to for my daughter to put on and take off. Although, this barbie has flat feet and the boots do not fit her other original barbies feet. On the other hand, her clothes can be taken off and be worn by her other barbies which she likes. This is one of my daughters most played with toy the last couple weeks. Happy kid and happy mom. As a parent, I am beyond happy about my daughter playing with barbies that have a different look than the original barbies. I wish I had this barbie when I played as a child.

              Comments about Mattel Girls Barbie Fashionistas Doll 18 Va-Va-Violet - Original:

              I chose this specific doll for my 7 year old daughter. She always says she wants purple and blue hair when she's older, she loves skirts like the doll is wearing, and she has boots just like the doll too. So I thought this would be perfect for her. She loves it, she was so excited to see a doll have the same fashion sense as she does. This is a great quality doll, I think it will last a long time. The only thing my daughter didn't like at first was that the hair was hard. Like it was sprayed with extra strong hair spray. She brushed it though, and now it's soft. I'm not sure if all of the dolls in this collection are like that, but this one was. There were a few other Barbies from this Fashionistas line that she wants, but she said this one is her favorite. I like that there is a variety of sizes, hair color, skin colors, etc to choose from. There's one for everyone!
