I was planning to save Bunny for a series of posts later in Spring, but I just couldn’t resist the pun. I AM late – I missed Easter, Mother’s Day, Barbie’s birthday, all the special occasions I like to do posts for. Plus, I’m now so behind with blogging about my purchases, it’s kind of insane. Things are a bit crazy here right now (I’ll explain another time) and I’ve been terrible at correspondence and posting. I’m sorry.
Well, Bunny … I never planned to get Bunny, even though I really like her theme, the idea, her design etc. The big issue? EYE WONK. LIKE, THE WORST EYE WONK EVER. I have seen very few of these dolls with decent eyes that both look forward. However, I found her recently in a discount shop and ended up giving in. At least seeing them on the shelves rather than ordering online gave me an opportunity to pick the best one I could find.
I don’t want to sound completely down on poor old bunny, but I also encountered another issue after deboxing – completely greasy, rigid hair. I washed it with soap and then I had to trim the uneven ends off, but to be honest I kind of expected that, as I’ve never had an EAH doll arrive with decent hair.
Bunny is one of those great dolls who has no pink whatsoever in her outfit (OK, I actually don’t mind pink, I just can’t deal with constant pink all the time). I love her waistcoat – although I’d prefer it if it was detachable – and her button boots, which make her legs look super curvy:
Like other EAH characters, she isn’t at all Anthro – if this was Monster High maybe she’d have real bunny ears, but at EAH even the daughters of animals are pretty much human (Cerise’s wolf ears and Kitty’s slitted pupils aside). Still, she’s cute – I like the fact that her and the other Wonderlandians are tiny, it’s a nice gimmick.
As I’ve mentioned before, I do have a soft spot for Wonderland themed dolls, so it’s great to be getting so many via Ever After High. I do have one or two more lying around, so I’ll probably bring Bunny back for some group photos on another post.
