The Gang's All Here

now that I have all the "originals" I had to do a group shot! I grouped the four classic monsters together, and put the mythological monsters together (I pretend Lagoona is Poseidon's daughter).

Cleo DeNile and Deuce Gorgon Giftset: Review

If you've been anywhere near a doll aisle in the past few months, you've probably seen the Monster High Cleo De Nile and Deuce Gorgon Giftset. This set has been a slow mover, despite being a good deal at twice the dolls and accessories, for less than twice the price. I think the problem here is that they bundled a male character with the bossy diva character, making it lower on the must-have list for most people.

I apologize in advance for the photos in this review. My camera battery was getting low, so I was in a hurry and didn't get many good shots.

The Bottom Line:

The Good: two dolls, Deuce is one of the more creative characters.

The Bad: some small parts

The Verdict: Monster High Cleo De Nile and Deuce Gorgon Giftset is a good deal price-wise. It's been a slow mover, so you are probably safe waiting to get this one. Some places are starting to put this giftset on sale, so a good deal is getting better.

Draculaura: Review

Probably the most popular of the monster dolls among little girls is the Monster High Draculaura Doll. [Edit: rereleased as: Original Favorites Draculaura, in the coffin packaging] Every time there are other people looking at Monster High dolls in my local stores, I hear a little girl asking for Draculaura. Of course her color palette might have something to do with that.

The Bottom Line:

The Good: she's cute and girly and shows it is ok to be vegetarian.

The Bad: some small parts.

The Verdict: Monster High Draculaura Doll is probably the most likely doll to win your little girl over to Monster High. She is a must for doll fans that love pink and/or vampires.
