Well, I succumbed to the cuteness and monstrousness of these darn dolls. For those who know me, I have NEVER been into any playline dolls so this is a big change in my doll collecting. So I'm here to do a little review about these cute dolls.
Well, let's start then! First their size: The dolls are bigger than Bratz, yet smaller than MyScene. They stand at 10 1/2" tall and their bodies are VERY skinny, so I don't really know what other clothing will fit them. Someone I know suggested Moxie Girl clothing, but again, I'm not familiar with playline dolls so I can't confirm this and I like them as they are so I won't be redressing them.
Packaging: Each doll comes with a plastic stand with adjustable waist holder thingie, one accessory, a brush, a "diary" that has a code to unlock things on the official website and their personal pet. They come in super cute packaging that is shaped like a school binder. What I love about the packaging is that it's not impenetrable like so much stuff you buy nowadays that can drive a person crazy. You know what I mean!
So on to the characters! We've got Deuce Gorgon with his super cool snakehawk and sunglasses to keep from turning his friends to stone (althought it only lasts 24 hours). He comes with his double tailed pet rat named Perseus and he's the son of Medusa. (Medusa did not think it was funny that Deuce named his rat Perseus)
His girlfriend is Cleo de Nile, daughter of The Mummy and a bonafide Egyptian Princess. She is the mean girl at Monster High and captain of the fearleading squad. She comes with a purse and her pet Cobra named Hisette (who also wears a crown). Oh, and she's the only monster that's afraid of the dark.
You can watch webisodes and check out other fun stuff on the official Monster High website HERE. I must've watched those little videos way too much because that silly theme song has been playing in my head all day long, LOL. For more of my pictures you can check my Flickr page HERE.
