Yeah... I can't think of a worse way to spend $100... I'd rather burn a hundred dollar bill than use it to buy this plastic junk.

after seeing this video. $100 for this is a huge rip off....Very cringy


Maybe this is a girl thing, but I just don't understand why anyone would do a video like this without having their nails refilled first (girl on the right), and with their nail polish chipped half the way down their nails (girl on the left).
My brain hurts after watching this.

Actually, I just thought of an idea.
Buy a bunch of those Easter egg plastic covers at the dollar store. Then go buy a bunch of dollar store doll pieces (because that's what this is) and put them inside.
Find a big plastic container and fill it with the Easter eggs, and put a doll inside.
Wrap the container and voila! You'll get the exact same excitement from your kids because all they're happy about is the "surprise" of opening a bunch of little presents.

Or make it even better by putting things inside that aren't garbage and won't be tossed in the trash a few weeks later.

If your kids can fall for that bait and switch trick, well, I would reconsider the quality of education they are currently getting and intervene. I also fear for their future as offsprings of an RFDer.

How about the countless drunken nights of clubbing in your teens?

I think people don't understand how it is to raise children in a society fueled by consumerism.

Children are always encountering observational learning. Whether it's ads on YouTube, or the Radio, or watching other friends/peers in school or after school programs they are hit with this form of marketing.

It also is further reinforced when they see their parents churning or flipping and picking up the newest and latest using RFD and other deal sites.

I agree with everyone on the overprice and quality of these unfortunately my daughter loves these dolls and has asked for this for Christmas but I haven't pulled the trigger yet. Waiting for the fad to be over and get it for 50% off.

Typically the larger dolls shown in the package sell for 13.99each and the small ones (lil sister) are 9.99each (but they were 4.99 a few weeks ago at TRU) so it's really only $50 of stuff in there plus some extra clothes are included.

The main difference is this package guarantees to have the rare 'glitterati' dolls that are harder to find in the standard collection. Yes, similar to how shopkins has rare, ultra rare etc.

I can't believe I know all this information Crying Face

My daughters have several of the regular ones and the lil sisters and they loved unpacking them and they still play with them.

I had my 8 year old niece ask for these, but was quite low on her list of 10.
My kids are 3 and 4 and they go batshite crazy for this LOL stuff.

I'd agree on the product and the price, but the company itself looks pretty smart to me.

LOL, Im guessing by all the comments like this there isn't a lot of 5 year old girls posting on RFD.
