If you are a fan of the first Monster High book written by Lisi Harrison, Monster High Frankie Stein Doll a doll version of the main monster character. [Edit: rereleased as Original Favorites Frankie in the coffin packaging]
This is the first issue of Frankie and comes in the trapper-keeper style packaging. On the back of the box is her bio. In case the green skin, stitches, and black and white hair didn't tip you off, they tell you she is the daughter of Frankenstein and his bride! I'm glad the bride got a mention, since she is nearly a monster in her own right.
In the box you get a Frankie Stein doll, her hair brush and stand, her diary, and her pet Watzit. Watzit is kind of monstery looking himself. He is made of the best parts of all different kinds of pets, but he seems to be mostly dog shaped. He has small wings and spikes, and a painted on collar. Like Frankie, he also has stitches.
Frankie's outfit is a one piece plaid dress that is very "Catholic-schoolgirl". It has black netting sleeves and a black netting underskirt. Attached to the dress is a tie, reminiscent of the suits her dad wore, and a "tie clip" in the shape of a skull that is purely decorative.
To accessorize, Frankie wears a studded belt with chain and lightning-bolt buckle. This is made of a flexible plastic and is removable. Her shoes are a fairly standard pair of black and white striped ankle strap heels. She carries a purse with a skull painted on it and a red studded handle. For some reason the shape of the purse really reminds me of the MasterLock combination locks we used at school. She also has a pair of earrings with blue skulls on them, and a tiny bracelet. Parental warning: the jewelery consists of small parts.
The Bottom Line:
The Good: she is the most adorable doll rendition of a monster ever.
The Bad: some small parts.
The Verdict: Monster High Frankie Stein Doll is a must have for fans of classic horror and/or unique dolls, or fans of the new books by Lisi Harrison.
