Screamingly, wickedly funny and fun, creepy but staying sweet star dolls, Monster High characters really do give girls so much more than just a chance to play. Like Lisi Harrison’s best loved 2nd book in the series, The Ghoul Next Door, Monster High dolls are about girls, tweens, teens life. Indeed there’s the adorable kit and caboodle realm of coffins and scars, but there are school clubs, sweet 1600 (not just16 to these monsters like Ghoulia Yelps or Draculaura) getting on time and stylishly dressed for the Dawn of the Dance”, or just chilling at Gloom Beach and being “Dead Tired”. Monster High is really about girls and their flaws and fountains of strengths being allowed to be who they are, loved and respected, with all their likenesses and differences.
Says Lindsay, “Monster High characters gave me some great advice like not believing everything people say and do”.
Says Madison, “I was pressured about crushes on boys, and worried about making mistakes and being a little clumsy, but then Monster High Frankie Stein doll was given to me and guess what, like her I realized it’s ok to struggle a little with this stuff and still be cool. Maybe I can find some electricity of my own too like Frankie Stein or even some other powers. I think I can be voltage too and maybe join the Fearleading Squad with girls like Draculaura, Cleo de Nile and Ghoulia Yelps. Actually, I’m saving up for the Fearleading Squad 3 doll pack.”
Bye-Bye Barbie, Hello Monster High Dolls
Why are Barbie’s put aside for Monster High star dolls? Lots of reasons–good ones too. Girls today are often not into or beyond the pretty perfect princess thing and from 7 on up are already unique, and maybe not so perfect and pretty but truly feel like one of those Monster High characters–flawed, freaky. Yet they still are into important stuff like community of friends and BFF’s, fashion –at least designs that suit themselves–if they can get the courage to be themselves. And Monster High offers courage. It’s all done with helpful ways of self-expression that are not destructive.
Many girls want Monster High Ghoulia Yelps doll because she’s so much like them. She’s smart but can only speak zombie grunts, she walks so slow she’s frustrated and stressed out but she finds her peace in books, illustrating, her pet owl, Sir Hoots a lot (a hoot!), and has her own sophisticated geek chic style.
Girls worrying about boys and relationship– as this seems to unfortunately be the stuff of girls from 6 on up–, really want Monster High Draculaura, and toy with the awesome Monster High dress up Draculaura in down time after homework.
Poor Draculaura can’t see her reflection, so never knows if her clothes and face are ok. But she does fine with relationships. She manages and finds good sense in dealing with issues. She’s got an interesting father/daughter relationship to boot. A vegan, she’s already got some differences that could make her a brunt of things, but she can manage. On star doll Monster High, the Monster High webisodes, the Monster High books, girls love the backgrounds and info about Draculaura. They follow her flirtations and realizations about a conceited Health Burns and how she makes her strong choices. What a gal, or ghoul!
More Monsters, More Spirited Times
With all these great Monster High characters, it’s no wonder that girls will want more and more of all the Monster High dolls. To be sure, one or two is never enough since most girls love to set them up, dress up the dolls in their fabulous fashions, and take pictures of them for their own “Behind the screams scenes”. And most important, of course, for these scenes are the boys, too! And Monster High has a lot of those guys as well as ghouls including the likes of Clawd Wolf and Deuce Gorgon. You can get a handy 2 pack online with Clawd Wolf and Draculaura, or Monster High Cleo de Nile and Deuce Gorgon.
When it comes to bags, girls, ladies, women, we all need bags for all our important things. Monster High bags get the essentials ready for day or night. One Monster Hi bag for daytime and another one for later on because your needs are so different depending on where you’re going, right? And nobody can forget about school, (or can they) and Monster High backpacks, lunchboxes, Monster High T-shirt design sets, and other necessary supplies are easily available too as well as bags and online.
Monster Moms, Terrifying Tweens, and Everyone in Between
Are dolls just for little girls? With the Monster High dolls there are all ages, even teens and moms buying them, and enjoying them, such as 17 year old Janice who says “the doll makes me feel comfortable with who I am and the way I dress. There’s no social or physical standard to the people, and friends are friends despite their differences.”
And moms who themselves are a bit “Goth” and enjoy a zombie, werewolf or vampire story, find the dolls sources from traditional movies and characters from Count Dracula to Bride of Frankenstein and the cute creativity of the available stories with humor such as Romeo & Ghouliette, well, cute.
Designing Monster Dress Up from Creepy to Outrageous
For girls of all ages who like art and drawing, and fashion, (and who doesn’t), terrific Monster High coloring pages help with drawing great images, and picking up ideas for fashions and developing new ones on their own. There’s even available a wonderful Monster High Monster Fashion Design Sketch Portfolio, or the Monster High Monster Fashion Mini Sketch Book to carry in a bag or backpack always.
Best of all to know, there’s no stopping Monster High. This life continues on just like the undead, and new Monster High characters are surfacing as always. What could they possibly be? Somebody said she heard about a tasty Venus McFlytrap.
