Monster High mania

Look, I’ll be the first one to say that I really don’t get the Monster High dolls. They’re basically… undead Bratz? Is that right? I don’t know. Thankfully, my girlchild is past the age where this is A Thing, so I don’t have to think about it too hard.

But hey, apparently they’re kind of expensive and sometimes hard to find. Maybe that’s why Amazon suggested to me that I buy this Monster High Skull Shores Black and White Frankie Stein Doll, even though I’m pretty sure I don’t need a creepy Frankenstein fashion doll. She’s down to just $4.13 shipped if you have Prime, and eligible for free Super Saver Shipping on your $25+ order if you don’t.

I don’t know. They still kind of creep me out, but it’s certainly the right price if you have a kid who’s into ’em.


  1. I think the early 2000’s will be known as the era that the undead finally got their sexy on. AT LAST. It was high time for undead discrimination to STOP.


  2. Is this Betty Rubble as a zombie?

  3. My daughter actually asked for one once. I gave her a “Oh, Hell NO” look. She hasn’t asked since.

  4. My daughter loves them because they are weird just like her. Since many are based on actual literature characters, it is a great way for us to talk about the origin stories. Because they are so unrealistic, both looks and proportions, we talk about the fact that they are play characters and not real. My daughter (who is 10) has developed her own stories for them. I also like the fact that their clothes COVER THEIR BODY. The most recent doll she bought was in a swim suit with boy shorts and a sailor collar. So no, they are not undead Bratz. They actually are much cooler. But I can also see how they are not for everybody.
