The first release of Novi Stars includes five characters, each with a different special feature. Mae Tallick is a pink robot who talks, Alie Lectric is a green alien who lights up, Ari Roma is purple with big hair (she smells), Una Verse is silvery ice-blue and has glitter inside her legs and Nita Light has a white head and a transparent body and glows in the dark. I didn't see Nita Light until yesterday (at Walmart). If I had seen her sooner, she probably would have been my first pick (I love things that glow in the dark), except for the fact that she comes with a big plastic pod and is therefore more expensive than the other dolls.
Of the four dolls available at Target, I knew instantly that I didn't want Ari, the smelly one (even though she has neat-looking purple hair). I also didn't want Mae, the one that talks, because I like to invent personalities for my dolls. So, it was between Alie and Una. Una is the "prettier" of the two, but I was not very impressed with her glitter feature in real life. It just didn't seem that exciting. Also, the glitter was all pooled at the bottom of Una's legs and I knew I would worry about the water leaking out or drying up over time. Besides, Alie is green, which is perfect for my first alien doll:
