I have to confess to being an old fogey and not quite getting the Monster High thing. This is basically… Barbies for the tween goth set? I’m not sure. Nevertheless, they seem to be a hot item every year.
If you want to assemble your own Monster High creations—or your kiddo dreams of being the next Dr. Frankenstein—you can actually buy a kit instead of just the doll. Who knew, right? Right now the Monster High Create-A-Monster Witch-Cat Girl Starter Set, Create-A-Monster Werewolf and Dragon Starter Set, and Create-A-Monster Vampire and Sea Monster Starter Set are all marked down to just $11, their lowest Amazon price ever. Do note that this gives you almost enough pieces for two dolls, but not quite—it’s more of a mix-n-match one doll kind of thing, I think (poor reviews are people complaining there’s not enough pieces for two dolls).
If you want a little bling with your Frankenstein (ha), there’s also this Create-A-Monster Design Lab Mystical Add-On Pack for $6.50 (also its lowest Amazon price ever).
Creepy? Sure, but so is watching your kid dress her doll in a bikini and hooker boots. I feel like the Monster High creator might be someone kind of fun to hang around with.
