I don't know anything about Monster High. I don't collect dolls (contrary to what my father thinks) and I've never seen the cartoons. Despite that though, it's hard not be at least peripherally aware of this uber-popular brand. The impact these characters have had on the toy world is undeniable. I personally love how they took a girly medium (fashion dolls) and made it edgy and cool. The fact that Toys R Us has an entire girl's aisle that isn't pink is startling. Plus they regularly have convention exclusives aimed at adults (which greatly increases their street cred in my opinion). I've always wanted some representation of this brand in my collection, but I just couldn't get past the "doll-ness" of them. Then luckily these Target exclusive Halloween figures came around. They aren't too large; They aren't too expensive; And the series seems finite. Basically they are the perfect resolution to my Monster High vacancy. Now I'm secretly hoping they make some more characters. Let's check out these 5 ladies below!
Up first is
(Daughter of Frankenstein's Monster)
(Daughter of Dracula)
(Daughter of the Werewolf)
(Daughter of the Yeti)
(Daughter of the Sea Monster)
Here are some promotional graphics of the group.
All of these figures (with the exception of Abbey) were released previously as figurines in 2012's IPad game system Apptivity by Mattel. The figure sculpts are identical, but some of the paint differs and their bases are much thicker and more noticeable.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
