The My Scene series of dolls was first introduced in the fall season of 2002, before the Diva Starz, to compete with the Bratz dolls. It originally included three dolls: Barbie, Madison, and Chelsea, with different ethnicities and personalities, and 2 extra fashions for each character. The characters (except Barbie) were named after different locations in New York City. More dolls were eventually added to the series, starting with in 2003 with Nolee, and three male characters, Bryant, River, and Hudson. Delancey and Ellis premiered in the “Hanging Out” line, which debuted in late 2003. Kenzie debuted in the “Getting Ready Line” of 2004 and Nia debuted in 2008. There are seven characters in the My Scene series (Kennedy, Madison, Chelsea, Delancey, Nia, Hudson, and River), six discontinued characters (Barbie, Nolee, Kenzie, Bryant, Ellis, and Sutton) and four special edition dolls (Lindsay, Jai, Tyson and Ryan). Each of the My Scene girls (and three of the boys) own pets.
