In order to write this text, I, as a would-be toy expert, first had to find out what "monster high" dolls are.

On TV and in the nursery
Since 2010, Mattel has already been releasing the films and series in which teen friends Frankie Stein, Draculaura, Clawdeen Wolf, Cleo de Nile, Ghoulia Yelps and Lagoona Blue attend Monster High School.
Now there is a new edition of the popular dolls, which you can find in our shop now. According to Mattel, the new dolls impress with "bright colours and a diverse range of body shapes and sizes". With the exception of monster student Ghoulia Yelps, all the main characters are represented.

In addition to the dolls, Mattel is presenting two new playsets that can be used to re-enact the film and series.
