Meet the Zelfs

I just met The Zelfs!
Zelfs are a small, colorful doll created by 
Moose Enterprise in Australia

http://thezelfs.com/au/

This group of Zelfs are the medium sized Zelfs
from series 1, released in 2013.


Series 2; released Spring 2014.




In the United States, Zelfs can be found at ToysRUs
or purchased through Amazon.com.

(The photos below were taken by other people.
They were found on Google>Images.)

Zelfs come in 3 sizes.
The smallest size is not poseable.
They have an opening in the bottom and can be used
as pencil toppers.

The smallest Zelfs come in a group in a Zelf Shelf,

or individually in plastic plant pots.


 

As it is a week before Easter,
ToysRUs is also selling the mini-Zelfs in plastic surprise eggs.





The mini Zelfs come in the same characters as the larger ones,
but also come in 3 different finish types for those who wish 
to keep collecting!


My favorite size Zelf is the medium Zelf.
They are smaller than a traditional troll doll
at 2 1/2 inches (not including hair).

I fell in love with other people's pictures.
I did not like them as much when I saw them in the packaging.
The one I purchased quickly won me over once I opened the box.


They are made from a quality vinyl,
come in bright colors, have additional theme symbols on their bodies,
and have long, soft hair.
They have joints at the neck, shoulders and hips,
making them reasonably pose-able for their small size.
The current medium dolls are $7 in the US.


The large size is similar to the medium size.


Each Zelf comes with a comb, a charm a child could wear
or put on their Zelf, and a collector's leaflet for the series.


I am finding Zelfs to be appealing collectibles.
They are like a modern troll doll....


with colors and illustrations like My Little Pony...


and a face like the gelflings in the movie
The Dark Crystal.



Some people have also mentioned that Zelfs
have some similarity to the Monster High dolls.


For people who like to collect toy series,
Zelfs are a cute and colorful option.
Kind of like potato chips....
