Winx Club Online Shopping Site! Italy Only?

The New Online Shop of the Winx! Enter! 

The official Italian Winx Club website now has a Winx Club online shopping store! The website launched today December 6th and there is a video on the front page featuring the Winx Club shopping site. 
Click the link HERE to watch the video!

The video features a Limited Edition Bloom Urban Fairy doll for purchase for about 30 Euros, and other Winx merchandise like magazines!

If you live in Italy, then you are in luck for buying, but other countries don't have access to the Winx store! Most likely, because the website doesn't offer shipping out of Europe or Italy (I'm not 100% sure but this is a good guess).
Here is the shopping site link! See if it works for you!
If you live outside of Italy and have access to the website we would love to hear what other countries can access it and what else the website features! Thanks for reading everyone!

Winx Fairy School by Tsumanga Studios App Review!

Hey everyone! Today I finally have a new post for you guys on the awesome new #WinxFairySchool app by Tsumanga Studios, the makers of Winx Club Sirenix Power! Also, sorry for the long hiatus on my blog! I've been so busy this year with school and homework it's unbelievable! Thanks so much for the patient wait! You guys are the best! 

As of now Tsumanga Studios is in the process of having a select few beta test the Winx Club app for iOS devices and I had the opportunity  to test this app like I did for Winx Club Sirenix Power! You can read my review of that awesome app here. The beta testers are responsible for seeing how the app performs on their devices, giving suggestions, recommendations, and reporting any problems to Tsumanga based on their experiences so that when the app is  released it is the best that it can be! 

*All opinions in this review are mine and mine only, and do not reflect the opinions of Tsumanga Studios or Rainbow SRL.*

When you first open the app you are welcomed into the world of the Winx and get a look at Alfea college! You are greeted by Griselda and asked to choose your fairy name and choose which fairy house you would like to belong to! My name is Ericixx and I choose the house of Morphix!

 Registering for Alfea! A dream come true!

After selecting your name and house you are then greeted by Headmistress Faragonda and you are introduced to the game. The game interface is very clean and simple, it is very easy to learn where everything is and navigate throughout the game! 

The goal of the game is to complete different tasks and level up until you reach level 10 and become a Believix fairy!

Winx Club Season 6 TRAILER Debuts on Rainbow's Winx Club YouTube Channels!

Okay guys, I'm so late with this post! But anyways, here are my thoughts on the Season 6 Trailer! 
As most Winx Club fans already know, on Thursday August 29th, the trailer for the BRAND NEW 6th season of Winx Club was uploaded to many of Rainbow's Winx Club YouTube Channels (Rainbow has multiple Winx Club channels for different languages.)  

Here is the trailer from WinxClubEN (The English Winx Club YouTube Channel. Also note that the trailer was uploaded on the other channels but were also the English version.) 

Link Here:

I'm not going to comment on the trailer too much but here's a bullet list of things that I noticed/liked/didn't like about the trailer. (I ended up commenting on a lot.) 

  • The Trix get new outfits once again! I'm happy about that but I'm not sure if I like the new hair styles and clothes yet. I'll need to get a better view of them.

  • The Winx are wearing pink and grey plaid school uniform style outfits throughout the trailer. It's unconfirmed if these will be the official everyday outfits for this season or not at this time. The outfits are really cute and pretty but I'm not sure how I feel about them being so similar. It kind of takes their individuality away as a group of fairies with totally different powers. 

  • Daphne is shown getting into the transformation poses with the Winx girls. It will be cool to see her fighting with the Winx in a few episodes, but please Daphne... don't join the Club. How lame would it be to be in a club with your younger sibling? I would hate that. A lot of people are saying that Daphne deserves to in the Winx Club because she helped out the Winx so much but is it really necessary? Daphne is already Bloom's sister so they can hang out when ever they want. I'd much rather see Roxy join. I want to see her progression as a fairy. How cool would it be to see her get her Enchantix powers or something? Although I feel like this will never  happen because Rainbow and Nick  seem to like to not like to talk about old transformations once a new one comes along, which is really unsettling for me. I always miss the old ones! 

  • There's a very anime-ish vibe and style throughout the whole trailer. I think I like it! I'm not sure if it's exactly "Winx" but I guess we'll see when the new season 6 episodes debut!

  • We see the Specialists with new outfits. 
  • Of course we get a sneak peak of the new transformations! It looks like there will be two in this season. 
I think this will be the main: 
And this here will be the minor: 

As you guys can see there will be CGI animation in the 6th season, but I'm pretty sure most of us saw that coming. 

What did you guys think about the trailer? I'm SO excited for season 6! And if fashion dolls come out I'm sure they'd be gorgeous!

 BubbleGumMagic97 and I have come out with our next part of the Fly High All Around Winx Club Doll Campaign! If you are unsure what this campaign is all about: Click here for a previous blog post explaining #FlyHighAllAround. 

Now we have developed a survey that we will be sending to a team at Jakks Pacific in order to help them out with marketing strategies and product development. It is NOT definite that this survey will have a significant impact on the Winx Club doll line, but our hopes are that it is read and helps out the Winx Club team at Jakks Pacific in some way. 

The questions in the survey are mostly aimed at marketing and advertising, which we believe are among the major things that needs improvement in the Winx Club Doll line by Jakks Pacific. 

Please take the survey here to assist us in our goal of improving the Winx Club doll line by Jakks Pacific.  
Here's the link! Thank you SO MUCH to those who choose to answer the questions!  It is VERY MUCH appreciated!

Fly High All Around Part 2: Contact Jakks Pacific!

If you haven't already heard I have started the "Fly High All Around" Winx Club Doll Campaign on my YouTube Channel Sailoreric97 with BubbleGumMagic97 on YouTube. The Winx Club dolls by Jakks Pacific have been selling poorly lately and we want to change this! Please read about my previous post about #FlyHighAllAround here for more details if you haven't heard about it yet. 

So we know doll sales are low and as fans we pretty much can see the obvious problems with the Winx Club Doll line. Most fans have come to the conclusion that poor doll sales are a result of:
  • Poor Marketing by Jakks and Nickelodeon: It seems that Jakks Pacific and Nickelodeon really haven't been advertising Winx. Winx Club just randomly stopped airing on Nickelodeon and when the show was airing we weren't seeing very many, if any, commercials to advertise the show and let fans know when it was airing. Nickelodeon doesn't seem to advertise Nick much on their social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter. Without the frequent advertising  how can they expect people who aren't huge fans like us to stay updated? 
  • Too Many Blooms left on shelves: This is one major problem that no doubt hurt the line. Consumers were mostly finding Bloom dolls and when they wanted other characters, they simply had trouble finding them due to the rarer characters selling out fast. UPDATE: It seems that this problem may be being fixed. I was watching a Tecna Sirenix Doll review on YouTube and in the comments I asked the girl how many of each character she saw at the store. She replied to me saying she saw one of each girl! So hopefully this will be the new case ratio. 

  • Bad Distribution:  From what I've heard people were for the most part able to easily find the first releases---Believix, Concert, and Everyday Collections. But when it came to the second wave of dolls---Harmonix and City Style- some people still have not been able to find these dolls in stores.

Fly High All Around Winx Club Doll Campaign!

According to many recent articles (some more recent than others) the Winx Club Doll line has been selling poorly. Here are just two articles you can read about toy sales at Jakks Pacific. Both directly mention the Winx Club Doll Line.

There are many factors that have probably contributed to the poor sales. Here are a few:
  • Infrequent/Inadequate advertising of the show/dolls
  • Shelves overloaded with Bloom dolls
  • Poor distribution/difficulty in finding the specific doll/s a person wants

Because of these poor doll sales I have teamed up with BubbleGumMagic97 on my YouTube channel Sailoreric97 to start a campaign to promote doll sales! 

The campaign is called "Fly High All Around!" Through the campaign we will be promoting the Winx Club Doll Line and hope to raise awareness of the line in hopes that doll sales improve!

Watch the campaign video here and don't forget to comment and subscribe to sailoreric97.

The doll sales for this Fall will no doubt have a MAJOR impact on the fate of the Winx Club doll line. 

If you can buy the dolls, please get the ones you want, and if you are unable to buy them, just spread the word about the Winx Club Doll Line to everyone you can!

Stay updated on the campaign on Facebook!

Remember to use the hashtag #FlyHighAllAround on Social Networking to raise awareness and sales for the doll line and the campaign!

Winx Sirenix Dolls Hit UK!

While browsing YouTube tonight I have discovered a  doll review of the Tecna Sirenix doll by Jakks Pacific.
According to the review the doll was purchased at a UK shop called Smyths and all 6 of the Sirenix dolls were there!

Here is the Smyths website. There are some Winx Dolls on the site but no Sirenix yet.

Credits for the video go to: monster high fan
Here is her channel:

Everyone make sure to do your best to support the Winx Club Doll line this Fall! Sales haven't been the best lately and the best way to keep the brand strong and alive is to buy the dolls and support it!

Winx Club San Deigo Comic Con 2013 Limited Edition Dolls

This year at Comic Con 2013 there will be some amazing new Limited Edition Winx Club Dolls to purchase! 

The first one that we all know about is Daphne. She will be available for around $30 at the Entertainment Earth Booth at SDCC and on the Toys R Us website starting on July 18th 2013. 

Here are some picture of her! 

Good news! There is also another Limited Edition doll that will be at Comic Con this year! It is a Blue  Harmonix Bloom Doll!
She is simply gorgeous! The designer did an excellent job on both of these dolls and I can not wait to buy them! Hopefully I won't have to fork to much over for this one but she will be worth it anyways!

So guys, what San Deigo Comic Con doll for this year is your favorite is your favorite? I can't decide! I LOVE both! 

Jakks Pacific Harmonix Dolls in Italy?

Would anyone be able to confirm if Jakks Pacific Winx Harmonix dolls are being sold in Italy? 

The Italian toy website has many Jakks Pacific dolls for sale but they also have many Witty Toys Dolls, which is the company that makes the dolls that most of Europe gets.

I was very curious about this since I thought that Italy only sold the Witty Toys dolls.

I checked eBay  because that's a good way to get an idea of what is actually being sold in a certain country. Believe it or not, if you search "Winx Harmonix" on the official Italian eBay website , you will see many Harmonix dolls by Jakks Pacific! I think this is very interesting! It looks like many of the sellers have them at their houses in Italy! 

So Italian Winx fans, have you seen any Jakks Pacific dolls in stores, or are these sellers getting them from somewhere else?

Daphne Limited Edition eBay Update!

The Daphne Comic Con Doll that had been listed on eBay yesterday has been removed. Those who ordered her sadly received emails saying that their order has been canceled and refunded! Bummer!
I guess we will all have to wait until the 18th like we originally intended.

Limited Edition Daphne Doll Available for order on eBay!

NOTE: Those who ordered this item from eBay have received emails from PayPal saying their order had been canceled and refunded. 7/9/13

Earlier today I was on eBay and spotted the Daphne Limited Edition doll that will be available at the San Diego Comic Con this year!

She was only $29.99 and I was surprised someone was selling her for retail price. When I clicked on the listing I noticed that it was on sale for the retail price because it was on sale at the Official Toys R Us eBay store. 

This was very shocking to see as the Daphne Doll on the Toys R Us Website is not available to order until July 18th. Click here to view Daphne on the Toy R Us website. 

The estimated Delivery Date is by Wednesday July 10th - Friday July 12th. I won't be surprised if this changes and I will update this post if it does.

UPDATE OF COURSE! NOTE: Those who ordered this item from eBay have received emails from PayPal saying their order had been canceled and refunded.

Click here to view the listing and buy yours today! It appears there are no order limitations so you can purchase more than one.

Six have been sold as of this screen shot which was taken July 8th at about 9:48 P.M. Eastern Standard Time.

There will be one more Comic Con doll for this year which will hopefully be announced soon! The designer is really excited about both this Daphne doll and the other Comic Con doll that is being released!

Even More Winx Dolls Heading Our Way!

In addition to Wednesday's post about new Winx Doll lines; there are even a few more that have been recently added to the official Winx Club Websites!

The English website has added 3 new doll lines.

Summer Style:

Below is the Summer Style Collection! It is just a very plain and simple basic doll collection! I think it is very pretty and nicely done for a budget collection. It includes, Stella, Layla/Aisha, Bloom, and Flora. 

Here is the Fashion Fairy Collection. It is another basic doll collection. It features beautiful dresses with a flowing trim and bonus wings for your doll! There are six dolls to collect-Musa, Flora, Bloom, Layla/Aisha, Stella, and Tecna! 
Finally here is the Shopping Fairy Collection! It is a really pretty collection based on the Cafe outfits from season 5. There are four dolls to collect- Flora, Stella, Bloom, and Layla/Aisha! The collection features shiny scarves, beautiful fashions, and extra wings! 
The only other collection added to the Italian site as of now is the Summer Style Collection. On the Italian Website the collection is called "Mare e Magia" which translates to "Sea and Magic". 

With all of these new Witty Dolls coming out you can tell that Summer-Fall 2013 will be an important time for Rainbow with fashion doll sales. If you live where any of these dolls will be sold I highly encourage you to buy them if you like them because fashion doll sales are a huge part of Winx and you will help to promote Winx with every doll you buy! 

Hopefully we will see some Jakks dolls soon!

Tons of New Winx Dolls Flying Our Way!

Hello guys! I'm not sure if you have noticed, but both the Italian and English Official Winx Club Website's have been adding tons of dolls to their fashion doll sections!

I'll give you the breakdown of what dolls have been added to each site! First we'll go with the English site.

The new doll collections added to the English website are:

Here are the Believix Magical Hair Dolls! As you can see the dolls in these images have Jakks heads and Jakks legs! Some of these Witty promo images are getting weirder and weirder. Also, you can notice that Musa and Tecna's wings are switched. 
The official dolls from this collection have been released and they are 100% Witty Toys. No Jakks heads or legs. You can see the official product HERE at Magix Journey.
As you can see the packaging has changed a lot.

Here are the Enchantix dolls by Witty Toys! I'm not very happy with the fact that the dolls have the reused Believix/Charmix shoe mold. It worked for the Charmix collection but for Enchantix you need the elegant wrap around shoes. It would be nice if the dolls had gloves and accessories but what can you expect for a collection from a transformation that came out in 2006-2007? We are far away from Enchantix these days. I don't think these dolls are that bad though, my favorites are Stella and Layla. It would have been nice to see Musa and Tecna in this collection. Also, as you can see in the group photo I made Bloom has a Jakks face but in the actual product she has a Witty face.

Now for the Italian website the dolls they added today were:

 Here is the Magic Ocean Collection! This collection may coincide with a DVD that may be the Mermaid Special that was announced a while ago. I'll like this collection a lot more if the actual dolls are as detailed as Stella is in the boxed promo image. These dolls also include bonus wings.The faces shown in the promo images are Jakks faces once again.

This is the My Fairy Friend Collection. It is a very simple line but I like the outfits a lot! I think the design is very pretty! This line seems to come with wings for the dolls. As you can see the faces are Jakks in the promo images.

Here are the SIRENIX DOLLS! I can't tell you guys how much I love them! They are so pretty! They aren't extremely detailed but they don't come off as cheap, like the Harmonix dolls did. I also love how they did the shoes. It's a much better idea then to just have the fabric as almost footie pajamas. The arm ribbon doesn't seem to be included like it was in the earlier promos we saw but that could be easily added if you'd like.

What do you guys think about all of these new collections? If you live in Europe will you be buying them? If you live elsewhere will you be importing them somehow? Hopefully soon we will be able to see the Jakks Pacific Sirenix Dolls! Also, do you think these dolls will come out with the Jakks Faces or Witty Faces?
