Monster High Doll is a new line of fashion dolls released in 2010 by the creator of Barbie Dolls – Mattel. Distinguishing themselves from those of other fashion doll lines, these characters are inspired by the famous monster movies and horror films. The main characters have names derived from the well known film characters such as Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, Medusa, zombies, werewolf, the Mummy and the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
The Monster High franchise includes fashion dolls as well as other consumer products such as stationery, bags, accessories, plush toys, apparel and electronics. There is also a 10 chapter long Monster High musical movie to promote this franchise.
All female dolls are 10.5 inches tall and the male ones are 11 inches tall. The dolls are made from ABS plastic with a soft PVC head mold unique to each character. They have articulated bodies and removable hands and forearms to make redressing easier. These dolls can be really nice gifts for both boys and girls for Christmas or as birthday gifts.
