I decided to wait on better prices for the singles when they first came out, alongside all the EAH and DCSG releases not long ago. I did buy Sancha though, because her not being included with the TRU.com releases made me think she might be harder to find in stores. A friend picked me up Hixby Hedgehog and Peeki Parrot, so I'll have those reviews coming up, and that told me they were starting to show in TRU.
My mom popped in there tonight after work and they had Peeki, who I didn't need, and Cherish Cheetah, who I did need. So here she is, the last purchased and the first reviewed.
I love cheetahs thanks to Cheetara from the 80s Thundercats cartoon. Cherish...doesn't look like a cheetah. They're decidedly not orange and their spots are black and solid, not brown and more open like Cherish's.
Where the orange and brown for her comes from, I do not know at all. They got the facial markings right on her pet friend, but not on her. And the pet has leopard spots, not cheetah.
So yeah, they're kind of a mess.
If you remove the cheetah aspect though, she's a very pretty doll. I really love her color scheme with the oranges and browns and pops of pink on the outfit.
I guess I'm going to need a rule for Enchantimals that says "Don't expect them all to look even remotely like the animals they're named after."
