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.
This is the first issue of Draculaura which comes in the trapper-keeper style packaging. On the back of the box her bio reveals she is the daughter of Dracula and is a vegetarian vampire. I have seen others refer to her as a vegan vampire, either way this means she eats actual vegetables, she is not "vegetarian" like the vampires in Twilight.
In the box you will find your Draculaura doll, her hair brush and stand, her diary, and her pet bat Count Fabulous. Instead of a purse, Draculaura comes with an umbrella (which is plastic and does not open), to protect her from the sun.
Draculaura's outfit consists of a top that is a black netting "undershirt" with a connected magenta vest. She has a pleated mini-skirt that is pale pink almost to the point of being white. Under that she has a pair of black netting leggings that reach only to the tops of her boots. Her boots are pink with painted on black laces and heart detailing. I enjoy the fact that her outfit appears to be Victorian inspired.
Draculaura does not have very many accessories. Only a pair of "safety-pin" earrings and a pink necklace that comes rubber-banded down so well it appears to be part of the shirt. Parental warning: these are small pieces.
I have to feel bad for Count Fabulous. CFab here is a male bat, but that does not keep Draculaura from dressing him up in pink. Here the poor guy not only has a little sweater with pink hearts on it, but also a big bow on his head. All of his clothes are painted on, however, so there is no re-masculating him without some paint. He is made of a slightly softer plastic that allows his wings to flex.
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.
