I'm staying in Toronto at the moment, and I recently visited the Samko/Miko toy and children's book discount warehouse that's north of the city. While I was primarily there to pick up books as gifts for friends, I did pick up a three toys for review. The first of the three is an American Girl WellieWishers mini block figure from Mega Construx (a version of Mega Blox).
These figures normally retail for around $8CDN, but at the warehouse they were on for $2CDN. So of course I had to bring one home! I was tempted to pick up Ashlyn (since that's the full size doll I own), but I wasn't a fan of the way her long hair translated to the block format. So instead I brought home Kendall.
Let's take a closer look!
|The front of the box. For such a small figure, the packaging was|
almost absurdly large. And strangely enough, it doesn't include
the character name.
|The back of the box, which includes photos of all five characters|
in the line. And again, doesn't mention their names.
|Along with the doll and her stand, this flyer was included.|
Once again, it fails to mention the character names.
|The rear view.|
Compared to most block figures, Kendall has very few points
of articulation: just five (neck, shoulders, hips)
And that's it! I'm looking forward to catching up on everyone else's figure and doll adventures of the summer now. :)
