This review is from: Rainbow Brite Doll 25 Years (Toy)
Hallmark must have taken leave of its corporate senses when they approved this line of Rainbow Brite dolls, the fourth generation.

The original Rainbow Brite family of toys and dolls were wonderful. Although aimed at girls, they were almost gender-neutral because they were all of the colors of the rainbow (and a few more) and not just pink and lavender. Some of the personages in the series were male, such as Starlite, Red Butler, Buddy Blue, Murky Dismal and presumabaly Lurky not to mention Brian and Kris.

The originals were soft and cuddly rather than hard plastic. They opened up a much larger world of imaginary play possibilities than this line ever thought of. In other words, they were really made for younger children.

Some people say that this line was sexed up compared to the originals. Not so. This doll's outfit really doesn't reveal anything and is no less modest than the originals were. The big problem is that they changed her age from about five or six to eleven and that made a world of difference. This version was too far removed from the originals that today's mothers played with as children so they refused to buy them for their own daughters.

Fans of the original Rainbow Brite were mostly dismayed by these dolls and with good reason. Because of that they didn't buy them in the expected numbers and the line was discontinued only seven months after it arrived in the stores.

This version of Rainbow Brite got the oblivion that she deserved. I hope that Hallmark will figure out that the only way they can bring Rainbow Brite back is to bring it back as close to the originals as possible. Mattel would again make the toys pretty much as they were when first released. Maybe the fifth generation will be the one that continues the proud Rainbow Brite name in a worthy manner.

This review is from: Rainbow Brite Doll 25 Years (Toy)
First Carebears was ruined then Little Pet Shop, and now Rainbow Brite. Why do these toys have to change? Why can't they bring them back looking normal? I got this doll for a birthday as a spoof piece but I wouldn't pay alot of money for this doll. I'm sure these dolls won't sell well either. The same thing happened to the Popples they brought back, and some were not released. The Rainbow Brite dolls in 2005 were much better, and unfortunetly I missed out on the Rainbow Brite Castle for my daughter at the time. Now the first thing out of her mouth after seeing this doll was they made her look like a weird adult. Toys don't seem to be kid friendly these days.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong, January 18, 2011
This review is from: Rainbow Brite Doll 25 Years (Toy)
I don't understand why anyone would buy this doll. It isn't the REAL rainbow brite and it is wrong from anyone to think that they could change something that was prefectly fine to begin with.
