Bratz Comeback: Fall 2010 10th Anniversary Illustration.
That's right! The Bratz are turning 10 this year and to celebrate, they are making a big comeback with fashion dolls/accessories galore. These dolls have become a major hit since their release back in 2001 but it hasn't been all smooth sailing for the company that makes them (MGA Entertainment). There was a major court battel between MGAE and Mattel over who should own the rights to produce Bratz dolls after Mattel claimed that the concept for the dolls was thought of by one of their own designers while still under contract. After all the drama, MGAE were rightly given back the rights after Mattel had thought they had won. Just goes to show how important the fashion doll industry is with the Bratz raking in major $$$$ and at the height of their success....even knocking #1 fashion doll Barbie off her throne! I have done an illustration of the new look Bratz from the 10th Anniversary collection.
