Sherry Gunther is a two time Emmy Award winning producer and studio executive with a steady track record of over two decades of experience producing hits such as The Simpsons, Rugrats, and Family Guy. Now Gunther adds doll maker to her list of accolades.
Gunther has turned her experience in animation into a new line of pop-star dolls, the The Beatrix Girls. The Beatrix Girls are not the first doll inspired by animation. Sailor Moon, the Jem and the Holograms dolls, Power Puff Girls, Japanese animé dolls and other dolls inspired by animated shows have been a staple of the doll-collecting world since the 1980s, if not earlier.
However, Gunther enlisted the help of leading animators and doll developers to re-imagine the look of dolls. The resulting dolls have a more angular look, with large heads, big hair and a stylized look that takes Bratz, Moxie Girlz and LaDeeDa dolls a step further, almost with Diva Starz look to them.
The dolls have petite bodies along the lines of the Moxie Girlz dolls, and the first wave of Beatrix Girls comes with cute and well-made outfits. Green-eyed Lark has red hair and a black dress over black leggings. Ainsley is the blue-eyed blonde wearing a pink ruffled dress over black fishnet leggings and gauntlets. Brazden has purple hair and eyes and wears a sparkly blue dress over silver leggings. African-American Chantal wears a sequined red minidress and has brown hair and eyes. The dolls are cute, colorful and their outfits are trendy without being trashy.
The Beatrix Girls dolls also come with a full line of licensed products in multiple categories including apparel, accessories, bedding, stationary, footwear and more as well as songs available on iTunes and Amazon Mp3.
