Monster High Dolls – Monster Chic Comes To A High School Near You
Monster High dolls are a range of
Barbie like dolls made by Mattel. Part of the charm of the dolls is that they look stylish or chic but also happen
to be based on famous movie monsters. In fact, they are the offspring of famous movie monsters so the story goes.
The dolls are just some of the products you can get that tie in with the Monster High story. Other products include
plush dolls, fashion accessories and even music.
Be your favorite characters from the Monster High series in these officially licensed Monster
High Costumes. Great for dress up and acting out your favorite scenes from the cartoon series or even making up
your own scenes. These costumes are a great idea for Halloween as they fit in with the scary theme but also look
pretty stylish too.
For the Monster High dolls all the actions centers around
the school Monster high. The dolls are high school kids (seemingly, although there are a few surprises). This
school is much like a typical high school with hall monitors, cheer leading squads, cool kids, geeks, sporting
types and academics. However the common elements that you associate with school all have a monster theme to
So the cheer leading squad is the fear leading squad and they sing or cheer about ghoulish things. The high
school team plays casketball rather than basketball. Quirky little changes like these continually reaffirm that the
school is full of little monster so to speak. All the main characters are the children of famous monsters from the
old horror films of yesteryear.
Clawdeen is the daughter of the wolfman or werewolf.
Lagoona is the daughter of the creature from the blue lagoon.
Cleo is the daughter of the Mummy.
Deuce is the son of Medusa.
And Ghoulia is the daughter of the Zombie.
As you can see, most of the dolls are girls and these toys are primarily aimed at girls. They lookstylish and
also have monster touches that make the dolls unique and a bit more interesting than other doll lines on the
Each doll is around 10 to 11 inches tall. Depending on who they are they will have characteristics that hint at
their heritage. The most obvious aspect of this is that each doll has an accompanying pet that is related to their
As the Monster High story develops, new characters are added. Some of the new characters that are planned to
join the school in the next year or so are the siblings of Clawdeen - Howleen Wolf and Clawd Wolf. You will also see Holt Hyde, Jackson Jekyll, Spectra Vondergeist, Abbey Bominable , Operetta and Toralei Stripe. Can you work out who their famous monster parents are ?
Gil Webber is the latest character to feature in Monster high
world. He makes his debut on spring break at Skull Shores.
Operetta is a much anticipated doll and no doubt her father is the Phantom of the Opera...funny, as I always
thought he was unlucky in love. Maybe he turned his life around after that nasty "incident" at the
As the doll market is very competitive, it seems that the trend when new doll lines are released is to develop a
fairly comprehensive back story for the new dolls. Kids can get all sorts of information – via websites, audio
visual materials like music, cartoons, books and videos on youtube.
This “fleshes out” the story of the dolls and develops new stories from time to time. This can give kids a bit
of context about their new doll and scenarios that they can use to play with the dolls. Kids can immerse themselves
in the world as if these new characters were their own new best friends forever.
Some of the storylines include Dawn of the Dance, which
is all about the Prom night at Monster High. Then you get a weekend at the beach for the kids as they head over to
Gloom Beach to play with frisbees and volleyballs. Clawdeen
should be pretty good at that but poor old Frankie and Draculaura might not be so keen.
If that sounds too energetic then Dead Tired is about the girls
kicking back with a sleepover at Ghoulia's house..who has the trendiest pajamas ? The newest adventure for the
Monster High kids is Skull shores. They are off for spring break
and that takes them to the mysterious Skull Island. Sounds ominous or maybe just good
