Ever After High Royal Dexter Charming
on 19 August 2015
Ever After High is by the same creators as Monster High (Mattel) and whilst not as big over here in the UK as in the USA or as big in the UK as Monster High it does seem to be gaining momentum and becoming increasingly popular. Like Monster High there are webisodes and I have seen an awful lot of them, both with my nieces who are Ever After and Monster High mad and if I'm honest I've watched a few by myself too as I really quite enjoy them now! The theme tune is extremely catchy so beware if you haven't seen any yet as you'll be humming it for days!
Dexter Charming is one of only 3 male dolls in the Ever After High range at the time of writing this review (Dexter, Alastair Wonderland and Hunter Huntsman). Dexter is the younger brother of Daring Charming and he is the eldest twin of his twin sister Darling Charming. Dexter is a Royal and so is his brother Daring but his sister, Darling is a Rebel. Dexter has enchanting eyes that make girls swoon but this effect is broken when he wears his glasses which he wears a lot. Dexter has a crush on Raven Queen and has been on a few dates with her but he doesn't know that C.A. Cupid secretly has a crush on him. Dexter is quite shy and not as brash as his elder brother and has doubts about his future along with his sister Darling. Dexter is roommates with Hunter Huntsman and is a lovely character willing to help others with their gadgets as he has a knack for technology.
Dexter stands at approx 31cm tall and is very beautifully made. He wears a tank top under his blue checked jacket which has a gold trim around the collar for that extra royal touch. He also has a striped scarf, small golden crown and he is holding his famous glasses alongside a watch on a chain hanging from his trousers. He wears hi-tops with his grey trousers and also comes with a backpack accessory which unfortunately does not open. He comes with the usual doll stand, hair brush and diary and his hair in the box has been flattened under his crown rather than his usual front quiff but this can be pulled out and styled as necessary.
Ever After High is a boarding school where the children of fairytale and fantasy story characters are sent to follow their parents footsteps and embrace the same destiny. The thought is that if they don't then their stories will cease to exist and so will they, however not all of the students are happy with their destiny's. Raven Queen (daughter of the Evil Queen) is one of the students who is not happy with her destiny and has vowed to change her future whilst Apple White (daughter of Snow White) is more than happy to follow her destiny. So the school has been split with those that wish to embrace their future - Royals and those that don't - Rebels. I purchase a lot of these dolls and the Monster High dolls as I purchase them for my three nieces that are mad about them and I also always purchase a doll for my home and so generally I end up buying at least 3 of the same doll and the quality of them each time is brilliant.
Another really excellent high quality Ever After High doll which has been beautifully designed and made and is a good likeness to his character in the webisodes. All of the Ever After High dolls are beautifully made and each of the ones I have bought and have so far (Ashlynn Ella & Hunter Huntsman, Briar Beauty, Apple White, Cedar Wood, Madeline Hatter, Kitty Cheshire, Duchess Swan, Lizzie Hearts, Blondie Locks, Ginger Breadhouse, CA Cupid, Holly & Poppy O'Hair, Alastair Wonderland, Darling Charming, Rosabella Beauty, Faybelle Thorn and Cerise Hood) have been absolutely gorgeous with lots of detailing and Royal Dexter Charming does not disappoint either.
