What It Is
The characters from Monster High are starring in their first DVD movie, Monster High Ghouls Rule. The story goes that the ghouls are getting ready for Halloween and reaching back into fashion and monster history to dress up for the holiday.
The Frankie Stein doll wears a blue, black, and white dress with matching earrings and black boots. The doll comes with a lightning bolt mask, a blue bucket for collecting candy, a party cauldron, and hairbrush. Frankie's black hair is streaked with white, reminiscent of the Bride of Frankenstein.
Why It’s Fun
This gorgeous doll will be a must-have for every Monster High fan and fashion fan. Frankie's dress reminds us of John Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood. The look has been given a contemporary Monster High twist. You can't help think of Betsey Johnson channeling Karl Lagerfeld. This doll is a wonderful imagination-inspiring toy and collectible. Monster High fans will like being able to play out the Halloween storyline from the new DVD.
Given the sophistication and elegance of the costumes, though, these dolls will appeal to collectors as well, and for kids they combine elements of play and display, which is what will appeal to girls who love the dolls but may not want to engage in younger fashion play.
As with all Monster High dolls, there's an element of humor in the storyline and the details of the clothes and accessories that really appeals to its fans.
Who It’s For
Monster High Ghouls Rule Frankie Stein is for ages 6 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Additional Ghouls Rule dolls include Draculaura, Cleo de Nile, and Clawdeen Wolf. Each is sold separately.
In addition to being gorgeous, these dolls and their storyline also have a message for kids: Everyone is different, and those differences should be celebrated. Delivering that message through the monster theme with style and wit has certainly contributed to the popularity of Monster High.
