A Peek on New Lalaloopsy: Cloud and April



Well, Lalaloopsy lovers out there could have seen these images of a blurry pair of new lalaloopsies seen in an  English Argos catalogue:

Since then Lalaloopsy fans were eager to see these after the release of Alice and Scoops. They have a clearer view now. As a matter of fact, you can already get them. Lalaloopsy Doll, Cloud E Sky and Lalaloopsy Doll, April Sunsplash can already be bought online from Amazon.

Cloud E. Sky



lalaloopsy cloud e sky


Cloud E. is a fair skinned lalaloopsy girl with sky blue button eyes and bright, soft pink blushing cheeks. Her hair is pure white with mostly straight wrap bangs with many curls. Her hair is worn in curly pigtails/buns with a single pale pink bow on the left. She has a silver hao and small white stars near her left eye. She also has wings. Cloud wears a soft pink and white themed dress with princess puff long sleeves ending by her wrist and a semi-transluscent skirt pieces over a puffed skirt. Her shoes are pale pink with white ribbons at the toe and white socks.


A little trivia about Cloud:


The idea behind an angel Lalaloopsy has been suggested by the fanbase countless times, it is unknown if MGA Entertainment used this popular idea or came up with it on their own. Cloud E. is the first Lalaloopsy to use the same eye color of another Lalaloopsy character, Bea Spells-a-Lot.Her pet poodle is a more detailed improvement of Suzette La Sweet's.


Isn't she pretty? She actually look similar to Suzette but this angel Lalaloopsy is really so adorable. Can't wait to get one! 


April Sunsplash

April has tan skin and black button eyes. Her hair is yellow, red, and pink and it is in the first Lalaloopsy side ponytail. April also has a red headband. Her dress top is pink and short sleeved with an orange belt. The dress skirt is yellow, orange, red and pink and it looks like an umbrella (sort of). April has purple leggings and green shoes with a little bit of pink at the top and white toes. April's pet is a pink toucan! There is a stripe before it's red beak, and the stripe is yellow.


A little trivia about April:

She is the first Lalaloopsy with a side ponytail.
Although lalaloopsy are American, she and Cloud E Sky were first seen in the English Argos catalogue.

So colorful isn't she? She looks unique with that side ponytail. One look at her would make us think that she really has that lively personality. 


This is so exciting! After the release of Scoops Waffle Cone and Alice in Lalaloopsyland, Cloud and April will be the next lalas on your list. They are actually not yet out in the market. I also wonder how some fellas got them on sale in Amazon..hmmm.


Well, that's all for now. I know there had been so much lala stuff here. But I can't help it! These dolls are just so cute!

Looking Back to the Birth of Magical Lalaloopsy Dolls


Everyone is going crazy over these cute dolls. The first time I looked at them, I was wondering what type of dolls were those because it appeared like rug dolls. But yes, it was really inspired by rug dolls. A friend of mine even asked me why moms and girls go crazy over these dolls when they only have button eyes! Oh, well, aside from being cute, the stories behind each doll are also amazing. Maybe this Lalaloopsy craze is the effect of their being “magically sewn.”

Others look at them as Voodoo dolls which are used for witchcraft because of their rug doll look. But for me, they are not creepy looking at all. I bet, I am not the only one who looks at them with adornment. These dolls are totally different from the dolls during my age where Barbies where the stars. Today, as people become more creative, there are so many doll variations that  arrive and one of the most brilliant of all those creations is the Lalaloopsy Dolls.

So, today, allow me to take you back to the time of Lalaloopsy’s birth. Just in case you are not yet totally aware of this. Lalaloopsy dolls “were once rag dolls that magically came to life when their very last stitch was sewn”. Each doll has a unique story on how they were created. They are also sewn on special days that greatly affect their look and personality depending on the type of fabric they were made from. Lalaloopy reside in a world full of silly surprises making their personality even more charming and lively. 

The magic of Lalaloopsy begun in 2010 when MGA Entertainment released them under the name Bitty Buttons with the tag line "Sew magical - Sew cute". But the name was changed after the launching making it more appropriate and attractive for both adults and little ones. The 13-inches or 33 cm dolls were launched last July 19, 2010. These were designed to encourage a child's imagination and creativity. MGA Entertainment pinpointed that these dolls also “teaches important life lessons such as diversity, individuality and the idea that everything deserves a second life”.

Bitty Buttons was the name of these dolls before they were called Lalaloopsy.

Well, we should be thankful for the brilliant minds behind the design and creation of Bitty Buttons which was more famously known as Lalaloopsy. For the first release of these dolls, there were eight of them namely, Crumbs Sugar Cookie, Jewel Sparkles, Peanut Big Top, Bea Spells-a-Lot, Mittens Fluff 'N' Stuff, Dot Starlight, Pillow Featherbed, and Spot Splatter Splash.

The first batch of Lalaloopsy immediately captured the hearts of many. People really didn’t care whether they are Bitty Buttons or Lalaloopsy because they still looked perfectly cute no matter how they are called. Regarding the change of name, I wondered about why it was changed but I found a post of Lalaloopsy in their Facebook page stating the reason. It says that, “We did change our name from Bitty Buttons to Lalaloopsy due to some unforeseen issues with the name”. So, that’s all they could tell us and let us not be bothered about it. Bitty Buttons or Lalaloopsy, they are still cute. No big deal.

The First Eight Lalaloopsy

Crumbs Sugar Cookie was made from pieces of a baking apron. She is super-sweet, has perfect manners, and loves inviting friends over for tea and treats. She has a pet mouse. Sewn on Date: December 4th (National Cookie Day)
