I Finally Got Them!

Hey Gang!

I finally got the Barbie Sister Twins Max and Marie!

I wasn't looking for them I was hoping to find some Fashionista donor bodies. But there they were ... on the baeck of the shelf. I think someone might have hid them.  Their Mine now!

BTW, I have had some problems with blogger and that is why the font isn't uniformed.

I don't often wait until I have time to take pictures to open the box but I did this time.
So here they are in the box.
They both come with pets.  Marie's has a pink bow...

...and Max’s has a turquoise bow and glasses. So who’s bright
idea was it to give the dog glasses?  They should have just
given that money to me!

Here is the back of the box. It doesn’t have them pictured. I find that strange.

Out of the box and without glare.  These dolls are very cute.
I like Max’s outfit the best even with the pink tie.

Marie's outfit isn’t special but it is nice.

I thought that they would be the size of the new Stacie but that are 
closer to the size of the 1990 Stacie dolls.

Here is Max with Janet.  I hope they do AA dolls too!

The Nitty Gritty!

Nude Pictures!

Here is Marie out of her dress. Both she and Max have the same
body with different arms bent.

The body style of Max and Marie is that of the new Stacie just shorter.

All three together

Compared to the older Stacie, they are thinner.  I guess this will cause 
some to comment on that.  They aren’t as tanned as the older dolls too.
Unlike the new and old Stacie dolls, Max and Marie can only lift
 their arms forward and backward. They can lift the arms to the side. 

The can spread their legs which the older doll could not.
 Their feet are thinner that the older Stacie too.  Shoe swapping will be 

Her feet are the same size as the new Stacie.  This is good but strange.

Here is the hand.

Max and Marie have textured panties but they don’t have their names 
on the back like the new Chelsea and Stacie dolls.

Max and Marie’s head is small that the older dolls too. Here is Max 
pictured with Todd size Micheal Mary Poppins!
Some collectors have hoped to make Max and older brother for some of Mattel’s smaller dolls. I thought I take some picture of them together to get a feel.

He works well as Tommy's older brother.
If you read this post anywhere other than
It is a fake!!! Run!!

This is my Maddox. His hair is a light blonde too so he could be his older brother.
Max’s hair is a lot lighter that my Hunter.  I personally might not put them 
together.   Note that Max's hair gets a little messy from the glasses sliding.

In sharing the older Stacie clothes, they will fit a lot loser on the twins.  
Finding them new outfits might be a challenge.  
Mattel hasn’t been known to come out with new outfits for any of the 
smaller dolls.   I haven’t seen fashion packs for the SIS dolls even.    

Besides Max and Marie’s feet being the same size there head is about the same size too!  This gave me and idea.

I have some extra Stacie bodies I was going to sell but maybe not.

Head Swap Time!

I put Max’s head on a Stacie body!  I kinda like it and I put Marie’s head on one too! 

I only had one straight arm doll but I’ll be looking for more.
What to do with the twins bodies?

I gave Hunter a new body. I’ll save the other body for another day.

Ok! Thanks For Looking!

Feel free! My husband steals my ideas all the time. He say "why work hard coming up with a good idea when I can steal yours." I have looked at things you've done over the years and copied too! I need some clothing ideas for the twins. Any ideas?

D7ana said...

They're cute, Ms. Leo! Thanks for sharing. I appreciate the comparison of the various doll bodies and heads, too.

I know that Mattel probably gave them the same body to save expense, but my eye squinted, my nose crinkled, and my head tilted. Couldn't they have given him a boy bump at least, lol. Or molded boy undies ;-P

Okay, I'm shutting up. Thanks for the review. Love your report and the photos ;-)

Brats boys have some nice tops that can fit these bodies but not to sure about the pants thhough. I have been contiplating about making my own pants for them. I think the Brats girls singles might fit as well.

ChampagneBarbie said...

Yay yay yay yay for you!
And your comparisons! I was gona write one up but haven't had time

Anderson's All-Purpose said...

They're adorable, and I love that they gave Max little glasses (not sure about the dog, though).

Sergio said...

I don't understand all the excitment about these two pinkish gremlins, they're quite fugly

Ms. Leo said...

Thanks for your comments D7ana, William, ChampagneBarbie, Anderson's All-Purpose and Sergio!

D7ana and ChampagneBarbie, Someone needed to do a comparison. I guess it was my turn. D7ana your right about Max. They could have spent a little money to make him different.

Anderson's All-Purpose, I'm not sure about the glasses yet. You need the rubber band on them to keep them on and that does some naughty things to his hair.

William, Bratz stuff does look masculine enough. There not a lot of just outfits. You kinda have to by the doll to get them. I'm going to take a look in some thrift stores. Oh no, William! Don't make me have to make something!!! LOL!

Sergio, I guess beauty is in the eye.... I think that they are as cute as any of the kids Mattel has done! There faces are as cute as any of the fashion girls. I guess it is a matter of taste.

Tracy India said...

They're cuties I just wish Mattell would stop with the one arm in an invisible sling look. I'll definitely have to enjoy them from afar.

I really like the proportions of Max and Marie's heads on the new bodies, which is interesting because I also quite liked them on their original bodies. I'm wondering how easy the original bodies are to dress with their permanently bent arms.

Vanessa said...

Great post. Congrats on finding them. Your pics were very informative! When shown with the other dolls, their faces seem too mature for their original bodies. I like them on the Stacy bodies. I've accumulated some extra Stacy bodies. So if I find them, I will rebody them, too.
