Jakks Pacific Juku Couture

Jakks Pacific Juku Couture Dolls

Jakks Pacific launched this fashion doll in 2008. The dolls stood 9 inches tall, and boasted full articulation, flat feet, and inset acrylic eyes. Although a neat idea, by 2009 Jakks had downgraded the dolls' quality and it was no surprise that they were discontinued before the year was out.

Juku Couture Original Dolls 2008

Wave One

★ Audrina. (back of box)
★ Hayley.
★ Jun. (back of box)
★ Kana.

The selling point of the line was that the outfits could all be mixed and matched; it was all about creativity and being unique. They originally retailed for $19.99 each. To support the first wave there were four fashion packs released:

★ Audrina Weekend Sleepover. (back)
★ Hayley Tennis Camp. (back)
★ Jun Dance Class. (back)
★ Kana Art Class. (back)

Juku Couture In The Wild

Wave Two - In the Wild

★ Audrina. (back of box)
★ Hayley. (back of box)
★ Jun.
★ Kana.

Definitely the rarest of the Juku Couture dolls, they seem to have only had a limited release. There was also a set of four In the Wild fashion packs for this wave.

Juku Couture 2009 Re-release

Wave Three - Re-release

★ Audrina. (back of box)
★ Hayley. (back of box)
★ Jun. (back of box)
★ Kana. (back of box)

2009 saw a re-release of the original dolls. Except not quite, because some of the girls had seemed to swap both personalities and outfits. Their hair, face paint and eye type were also changed, and the general perception was that this wave was lower quality than their 2008 counterparts.

Juku Couture Global Good

Wave Four - Global Good

★ Audrina. (back of box)
★ Hayley. (back of box)
★ Jun. (back of box)
★ Kana. (back of box)

Again, this was essentially a re-release of the In the Wild line with switches to different dolls, plus mixing and matching of pieces.

2009 Fashion Packs

★ Birthday Party Fashion Pack. (back)
★ Cheerleading Fashion Pack.
★ Dance Fashion Pack. (back)
★ Girl's Night Out Fashion Pack. (back)
★ Ice Skating Fashion Pack. (back)
★ Sleepover Fashion Pack. (back)
★ Weekend Retreat Fashion Pack. (back)
★ Winter Glam Fashion Pack.

★ Birthday Party Accessory Pack. (back)
★ Cheerleading Accessory Pack.
★ Dance Accessory Pack. (back)
★ Girl's Night Out Accessory Pack. (back)

Like the rest of the 2009 line, these are mostly repackaged pieces from earlier dolls and fashion packs.

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
