I was browsing online for Mimo figures when I stumbled upon a doll line on YouTube. It's called Magik Petz, and it was showed at Hong Kong Toy Fair in January this year. Here's the YouTube video I watched. One of the doll face sculpts caught my eye. First, let me show the thumbnail of the video:
Doesn't the sculpt look familiar???
That looks like an I Love VIP Pets toy from IMC Toys, doesn't it???

I made a comparison of I Love VIP Pets Lea and this Magik Petz doll called Dana:
|I Love VIP Pets vs Magik Petz|
The eye screening is different, but the rest looks pretty similar. What where they thinking??!
I found a page where two of this dog-faced dolls are sold and these are their pictures of the dolls still in box:

|Magik Petz Chloe|
Seriously, Chloe's eye makeup is very similar to another I Love VIP Pets doll's makeup. It's really sad.
These dog dolls even come with pets sometimes:

A pet with a pet. Doesn't this set gives off major Pinkie Cooper vibes? OK...
I don't know about the other Magik Petz doll. Some of them are human looking, and the other looks like a pig, but these dog dolls are ~something else. What a shame.
