Creepy dead skin tone with corpse spots and poor articulation
December 10, 2014
I purchased 5 of those Zeenie Dollz - Sini, Kazumi, Yana, Evee and Lina. Supposed to be a Christmas gift... I really liked the realistic eyes and the fact that they supposed to be "fully jointed".
What I noticed right away - it is the weird tone of the dolls skin. I thought that may be the box cover is changing the colors - so I opened them to check. Each doll (especially the African-american one) - has unnatural, weird skin color, kinda yellowish, grayish, and the African-american one has grayish- greenish skin color. It looks like the skin of the human corpse!!! You absolutely can't tell it from the 3d pictures given here.
And not just color - every doll has some kind of discoloration all around the plastic body, like they were painted on top or something, so the dolls' skin is not smooth, I would compare this to the marks that tanning lotion can leave on your skin if it was not applied correctly, So, it looks like the dolls have dead skin with corpse spots on it! OMG, it looks SO creepy! Oh more then this, the shape of the dolls boxes kinda remind a coffin lid. I don't want to give it to my child. I intentionally was avoiding buying the "monster high" brand dolls, because they are made to look creepy. And those Zeenie dolls look even more creepy, because they are not supposed to be stylized to look scary like the other brand..
Other thing about those dolls - they can't sit normally, in the natural position, like let's say Barbie dolls sit. Bodies of Zeenie dolls can't even make the perpendicular angle with their legs. When you try to sit them - they are leaning backwards.. The joints on their hips are not flexible enough to bend the legs normally. So NO tea parties with those dolls unfortunately.. Dolls that are not jointed can sit better then those. Other joints are not flexible enough as well, for instance - I could not bend their arms to put on the waist and etc..
So yeah idea is good, 3D pictures provided are beautiful, dolls are creepy and not bendable, with very poor articulation. Disappointing... :(
