Darling Charming is MY favorite character, so I was hotly anticipating the Dragon Games version of her, which arrived on my doorstep today! I think this is my absolute favorite Ever After High line EVER…the dolls have so much detail, and are so well-executed, that I am just majorly impressed with all of them.

That being said, I am a tad bit disappointed by this Dragon Games Darling Charming doll. I’m not sure exactly why – I think Ever After High made her skin a bit tanner than her signature doll, but also changed her eyes a little bit, such that she doesn’t really look like the same person. Other than that, however, everything else about this Ever After High Dragon Games Darling Charming doll is just…well, charming.

This new Ever After High Dragon Games line will also have a movie, called, “Dragon Games,” that is coming out on Netflix at some point early next year (2016). Apparently, the premise is that the actions in Way Too Wonderland have made it easier for the Evil Queen (Raven Queen’s mother) to escape her prison, and she shows up at Ever After High as Mira Shards (a new student).

The Dragon Games boxes all say that to show she’s changed her ways, the Evil Queen brings back the hex-treme sport, “Dragon Games.” Dragon Games is a sport consisting of 3 dragonriders per team, and evidently, this team is the 3-doll lineup of Raven Queen, Darling Charming, and Holly O’Hair. (Raven Queen and Darling Charming are no-brainers, as they are tough, powerful girls, but Holly O’Hair was a bit of a surprise).

Darling Charming, as the original warrior princess at Ever After High, was MADE for this line. And her chainmail cap, chainmail necklace, and chainmail boots make no bones about her toughness and her abilities as a super-knight. I also love that Ever After High is giving these Dragon Games dolls their leggings back, as well as adding cool new accessories like vambraces (or also bracers) and armor. Still no earrings, but when you’re on dragonback, I can’t imagine that earrings would be very practical.

Here are the top reasons to love this new Ever After High Dragon Games Darling Charming doll:

1. Darling Charming rocks out in her armored dragonrider look.
2. Her armored headpiece is the best out of all the dolls…it fits like a cap and is the most practical.
3. Dragon Games Darling has painted details on her armor, which means you don’t have to do much customization to her – she’s already perfect!
4. Darling Charming’s hair is curled charmingly in the front, in an homage to an almost 70s-style Farrah Fawcett type hairdo.
5. Finally, Dragon Games Darling Charming comes with a ring that could double as her shield! (Although, it’s so small, it might as well be a buckler).

I love this Darling so much but I'm not getting her because I believe next year in Australia we are getting the Dragon Games dolls in store (I can't get dolls online).As much as I would love to wait I'm so impatient because this week Darling in original outfit has just hit stores and I hope to get her in original outfit before everyone buys her or she gets sold out . (Darling is very in demand around Australia I don't know anyone who doesn't want Darling these days).I don't collect duplicates so I really need to think before I get an EAH doll.

I wasted all my money so I couldn't get her, but I'm just going to ask my dad for 20 dollars and I have gotten like 2 dollars for taxes. That's my plan to get Dragon Games Darling lol ๐Ÿ˜

  28. omg I love this so much!!!!! I wish I could have one ๐Ÿ™ but my mama is getting me Holly O'Hair for easter

  30. i like darling charming can I have one I like ever after high dolls but I don't have one

  31. can I have one I like ever after I don't have one

  32. I think her dragon's name is pronounced herrowing but it is spelt like herowing because darling is a secret hero in training lol ๐Ÿ˜€ but yeah it is meant to rhyme with herowin because that is what a female hero is called usually so it's meant to rhyme so it's pronounced like herrowing ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. I bought the same exact doll, but it didn't came with stands, nor brush. ๐Ÿ™ the box is not opened though, is this a different version?
