The official 2023 Bratz Thread is now here! It is currently in members-only in case MGA is watching (although this forum is a flop and an MGA staff blocked us yesterday probably for being such a flop so they probably don't care!):

UPDATE: I have been updating the thread to the best of my ability but certainly not the OP so I recommend just going to the last page of this thread any time you want to check up on new updates.
Mobile users: Just so you know there are 4 pages in this thread so make sure to remember to go to the next page to see the latest comments and updates.
This thread is a timeline and will be used for any news on the 20th Anniversary Bratz (Bratz 2021)!
For this timeline, I used @lookinbratz's & added a few more things missing, tried to organize it by highlighting, (and also translated it in Spanish & Russian as seen above).
Thank you so much lookinbratz for giving me permission! You can see his original timeline that he worked on here!: https://www.lookinbratz.com/blog/bratz-2021-news
To discuss any Bratz merch from 2020/2021 please go here:
The links should show up when you click on the text whether they are underlined or not. Some however will not have links.
Purple highlight: Related to the dolls, games, or anything that is not related to merch.
Pink highlight: Related to merchandise like shirts, apparel, etc. that were released from 2020/21.
If something is not highlighted that means it is most likely not important in the comeback's dolls or the game was not released yet to be highlighted.

-The 2018 Bratz Collector line had issues Bratz didn't have budget.
-MGA is making a lot of money L.O.L. Surprise! but part of that money is not for Bratz, meaning Bratz doesn't have their own money like L.O.L Surprise!
-MGA has plans for Bratz in 2021.
-MGA lost most of the Bratz archive/history through time and because they changed offices.
-The hype of the 2000s is crucial for a Bratz comeback so if MGA waits more time and doesn't take advantage of the hype then the brand might fail.
