When they were first released, A launch party to promote the dolls took place in New York City on May 7, 2004 and they were promoted by pop singer Paula Abdul. The dolls were also advertised in the UK on kids network Nickelodeon.

Sadly, the dolls didn’t become popular with the public, with some criticizing the toys for being fragile and very annoying. TOMY discontinued MicroDancers in 2005, due to disappointing sales.

 

3In 2013, TOMY brought back Microdancers for their 10th anniversary in the UK. but it’s unknown if TOMY still sells them or not and they seem to be discontinued once again.

The dolls are somewhat easy to find online and aren’t worth a lot.
