I’m starting the April A-to-Z with a double-A!
Meet Adrienne Attoms. (Yes! I finally remembered to get in-box shots on one of these!) For those of you coming here direct from April A-to-Z, as you can probably tell from the box, she’s part of a doll line called Project MC², which is a tie-in to a Netflix series. I have never actually watched said series, and likely never will, ’cause I don’t really do much watching, and family entertainment is not usually my bag (though there are exceptions). There are four characters in this doll line, and this makes the last of the Wave One dolls to join my collection. The other characters are McKeyla McAlister, Bryden Bandwedth, and Camryn Coyle.
Okay, now that that’s out of the way, let’s move on with the post. (No more shameless plugs to old posts, I promise!) Before I get to the doll herself, I have something to say about that box! “Make your own volcano eruption!” Um, seriously? Your doll line about super-smart high schoolers has “Make your own volcano eruption!” written on one of the boxes? Are you sure you want to do that? ‘Cause it’s freakin’ lousy English, I gotta tell ya. Not, perhaps, strictly wrong, but it is not how one would normally say it. “Make your own volcano erupt” or “make your own volcanic eruption” would be the normal ways of putting it. The latter, I think, would have been the ideal way to say it. Certainly that’s what my eye always auto-corrected it to say. (Automatic in-eyeball auto-correct can be a problem, of course. There was a local election lawn sign up last month for a candidate called “Dimmitt” and my eye kept deleting the second “t” and turning the “m” to a “w” because that was a word and the other wasn’t. Unfortunate, that. (And I have no idea who the guy even is, as that was for a district I don’t live in.))
There’s something about Adrienne I really like. She’s like a cross between Honey Lemon and Gemma Simmons. I am totally cool with that combination. 😀
At least now I understand why they created a high-heeled foot for this line. (I still don’t understand why they gave said foot to sneaker-wearing Bryden, but…there are some things woman was not meant to understand, I suppose.)
I like the fact that she’s not blue-eyed like so many other (domestic) blonde dolls.
Yeah, I decided to let Adrienne play with the erupting volcano experiment, rather than do it myself. ‘Cause I’d expect that would get messy, and my place is plenty messy already, thank you all the same, MGA.
I realize it really looks like she’s missing the top of the volcano with whatever’s in there, but I promise you she isn’t:
Anyway, I know she should have been wearing her safety goggles (or are they just plain glasses?) but like Bryden’s glasses before them, they really don’t fit her. I’ll have to give them to some Monster High doll, I guess. (Gallery link for this post is here, btw.)
Okay, so that was A. (One down, twenty-five to go!)
See you tomorrow for B! 😀
