New Monster High Dolls of 2017

At Toy Fair 2017, Mattel revealed the new Monster high dolls of 2017. Here is a list of all the new dolls in the line coming out.

What would Toy Fair 2017 be without Monster High? At Toy Fair, Mattel showed off its upcoming Monster High Dolls. There are some really cool dolls and play sets coming out. One thing that we always have loved about the Monster High Dolls is that they are always unique, always different, and always standout. This year’s dolls are no different.

Here’s a look at the newest Monster High dolls coming out that you are going to want to put on your Christmas wishlist later this year.

New Monster High Family Dolls Of 2017

This year Monster High is expanding with Monster High Family. Monster High Family adds a new dimension to core ghouls that we all know and love.

Monster High Family Banner

A lot of Monster High fans really wanted to see a more family oriented line from Monster High that would make the dolls more relatable. With Monster High Family, we get know about their family, their everyday life, and get to meet their siblings and parents.

A lot of Monster High fans fell in love with Draculaura’s dad in all the Monster High movies. He just appeared in the Welcome To Monster High movie. So they made him into a doll that looks just like him. The Vampire Gift play set includes Draculaura and her dad, Dracula, along with a fun play set.

We are even getting more of the Monster High family. In the line, we are getting sibling pack assortments, which feature a well known Monster High character along with its sibling. This is Lagoona Blue and her little sister, Ebbie. Just look at how beautiful Lagoona and her sister’s hair look. The 2-pack swim pack also comes with beach accessories.

There are also siblings that are sold separately that come with fun accessories. At about 6 inches, how cute are they? Lagoona Blue actually has another sister, Kelpie Blue. Even Draculaura and Clawdeen have little sisters named Fangelica and Pawla.

New Monster High Garden Ghouls Dolls Of 2017

Monster High is about to “grow” with the new Monster High Garden Ghouls line. These dolls will be available in the Fall. We are moving out of the hallways of Monster High and into the garden.

Monster High Garden Ghouls Dolls

So we are getting a really pretty garden look for our favorite Monster High characters with beautiful wings and elaborate makeup. It’s a completely new environment with flowery designs, critters, bugs, colors, and more.

This is Teresa Thorn Willow; she is the feature doll in the line. She is the daughter of the Tree Nymph, so she is actually part tree and comes on a cool doll stand. You can open up her trunk to reveal her feet and a play set inside. She can even come out of the doll stand.

The coolest part? She actually grows from a standard doll size to 15 inches. There is a dial on the back of the doll that allows her to grow. Like a tree, her branches and leaves span out as she grows. When the doll is grows out, she is massive. The doll comes with a bunch of fun critters that can be hanged on her branches.

There are going to be other characters in the line that will also get a garden makeover including Toralei, Twyla, and Cleo. They have been garden “Ghoulified.” We fell in love with their shoes.

There are also little 6 inch scale dolls in the line with a lower price point. With beautiful colors, wings, and bugs, these are called Winged Bugs. Their names are Beeanca Stinger, Fyra Sparks, and Jada Hindwing. They come with a cool doll stand that acts as a seat for them. Most of us love mashing up all our Monster High dolls together. The neat thing is that these dolls can actually be placed on the doll stand of Teresa Thorn Willow, so everything connects for some fun cross play.

New Monster High Play Sets Of 2017

The big play set coming out this year is this fun truck. There are a lot of great features in the Monster High Deluxe bus. When it is open, there’s a swimming pool, piranha spa pedicure station, smoothie station, and a vanity area for the dolls to get ready. It also comes with a table and chair accessory.

The coolest part is that the bus can fold open or close, creating a fun play set. When you close it up, there is a little switch on the back that rotates the dolls 90 degrees so that they face forward.

    I really do not see a reason for the change. The dolls never appeared dark and scary. I know 3 young girls the youngest just tuned 6 who have been playing with these dolls since she was 4. She even watched the dvds.

    If a 4 year old has not problem with the dolls and the two 9 year olds who have been playing with them since they have been out have no problem I find it hard to believe this is coming from the children.

    This is more likely coming from conservative adults. Oh I am a collector I am 60. I can not promise I will be purchasing the new look dolls. Dana does not look like a MH doll. I do like Ari in the singing version for the clothes.

    • Carla M. March 12, 2016 at 3:38 pm #

      I agree with Joanne R. I’m an adult collector too. (36) I will buy the New characters, but I’m not sure I will buy the reboots. They are Booring (boring). They all have such a blank stares to them. They need more Monster to them. It is like they took out all the details to produce them at a lower price, ( and still charge the big $$$) but the details are what made them worth buying at $20 and up.

      I also think it is hypocritical that they preach empowerment and loving yourself for who you are then changing the dolls looks to fit better.

      • Mama Peltcs September 27, 2016 at 9:04 am #

        I too collect MH dolls and do not like the new reboot. I will add to the collection only as new characters surface. I think the creativity is muted with the new look.

      • Meranda May 16, 2017 at 11:19 pm #

        I like the original designs the whole point is to be a little dark and different it’s about being unique and in my opinion the new dolls are just like Barbie dolls cute and pretty not unique if something is not broken leave it alone

    • Betty July 7, 2016 at 8:06 am #

      I think they are all amazing I don’t know what you are talking about.

      • Niko August 30, 2016 at 10:04 pm #

        Uh, not they are not amazing. What is “amazing” is how people are ok with the fact that the dolls don’t even look monster-like anymore, the outfits/accessories look cheaper and the new girls look just like MLP Equestrians, except those look edgier than MH now – how pathetic is that?! I am buying the old dolls to add to my collection, piss on these new dolls. I hope sales crash and burn and they probably will because the dolls were never made for girls under 8, but now they are catering to these kids because their fat loser moms complained that they were too scary?! Too bad – you lost a lot of customers like me, and we spend a lot more money than a 6 year old, lemme tell you that.

      • Monster high fan May 3, 2017 at 4:48 pm #

        I agree with you because I just think they are trying to bring a new generation of monster high because the ones who used to collect them are now getting older. I like the new reboot.

    • Raygirl November 21, 2016 at 9:12 am #

      Its actually coming from the retailers. The retailers, especially of big department stores like Walmart and Target, have been getting picky over the dolls they will buy and sell in their stores, considering that dolls are not selling as well as they did years ago. You see the edgy trend (that was popularized by the Bratz dolls) has died out. Monster High came when that edgy trend was in fashion and so naturally it was easier for dolls to express a little more edge. But these days Princess dolls are in trend. Disney Princess and descendants are the new trend and so retailers are being picky about the types of dolls they will sell in their stores. This is why the dolls like more like Disney Princesses rather than monsters.

      • GuessedWho March 21, 2017 at 1:32 pm #

        i work at Target and I agree Target is getting picky on the dolls – they are no longer unique so why sell certain issues that are no longer monster-like popular?

    • Brian Sperry July 3, 2017 at 12:06 pm #

      Conservative adults…not likely. Conservatives aren’t the ones telling everyone how they should live.

  2. Kaiah May 5, 2016 at 5:07 pm #

    I don’t like the new dolls. The faces look like the face of a doll from a horror movie (especially Draculaura). I’ve been buying Monster High dolls since they first were released, and I’ve never had a problem with their looks.

  3. Sarah May 14, 2016 at 8:37 am #

    I don’t like the NEW faces you put on them and I’m 12 so if I’m 12 and MONSTER HIGH came out in 2010 or 9 I have been collecting for half of my life and the faces were NEVER Dark of Scary just ask my mom or dad. also the new faces do look very bad with like theres no more monster in them I mean you wanted to teach kids with your dolls that it’s good to be different and not to follow the crowd, but now it looks like your following the crowd with EVER AFTER HIGH and BARBIE and not being different (having your own line anymore :i ) I’m not saying I have anything against EVER AFTER HIGH or BARBIE I mean I am a collector of both but still. P.s. I like the Ari doll so good job with her ………. But I want u to think about this for a minute of your time from this comment….. what if u loved something for half of your life…. just so you can change it…… If u thought about this how do u feel? if sad… then u know what I’m going though right now……. thank u for your time Love Sarah……. your BIGGEST FAN………

  4. Linda Baj May 22, 2016 at 3:21 pm #

    I will not be buying the new dolls you lost a very good customer as I have all of the dolls that have released in the Monser High Collection they were so unique now they look like any other doll with the big round eyes boring ….not buying this version. Sorry no

  5. Lagoona Blue June 4, 2016 at 2:40 pm #

    I’m 7 and I was just beginning to love monster high but now I hate it I watched the movies and have a few dolls but now I’m not even going to look at these NEW things these aren’t dolls they are torture to my eyes why Mattel did you have to change this

    The best things in life always change and when they do it’s never pretty it’s always horrible thanks Mattel you lost a fan I am sorry monster high and sorry Lagoona blue but now your just something that I used to know WHY do this to me WHY

    Whoever made this IDEA let me tell you something you destroyed the best thing in life you destroyed me what do I do now all I ever loved was monster high you don’t know a thing about monster high and your IDEA is horrible just horrible !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    • Me July 26, 2016 at 4:44 am #

      Who ever made the idea of the reboot should be fired. I mean, what happened to “He yourself, be unique, be a monster”? They should change their motto to “Be your self, be unique, but if anyone doesn’t like you, change” I will NOT be buying any of the rebooted dolls. It really stinks because I have almost every character, except Holt and hoodude, that monster high has made, most of which are their originals, and I was very excited for new dolls. I hope that monster high will realize their mistake before they lose too many customers. Please bring back the old monster high!!

  6. Silas June 10, 2016 at 1:11 pm #

    I’ve been collecting since Monster High first came on the scene. Mostly because I’m a horror fan and a fan of anything whimsical and cute. And I thought Monster High was a beautiful blend of both. They were these gorgeous girls based on classic horror characters. They themselves were never scary. I’ve seen the Monster High section bombarded with kids of all ages and genders (even adults) because these dolls are AWESOME! I’m really disappointed that they’re going against everything Monster High stands for. “Be yourself, be unique, be a MONSTER!”

  7. Dowdy June 12, 2016 at 4:53 pm #

    It’s May an the minis are not out yet!! I have been look everywhere and still haven’t seen them. What the deal

    • Leenie September 12, 2017 at 11:04 am #

      It’s now Sept and no new minis yet.. Total bummer right?

  8. Gunny & Skylar June 13, 2016 at 7:24 am #

    We have been collecting MH dolls since 2012 & have almost all of the dolls. We aren’t going to be buying them anymore. What happened to be yourself,be unique,be a monster! If you go forward with this change, you will lose a great customer and I’m sure many others will agree!

  9. Linzaa June 22, 2016 at 8:29 pm #

    The Ari singing doll looks like a reboot of Spectra.. All the shades of purple are spectra’s colors and they gave them to Ari just seems odd

  10. Bridget June 28, 2016 at 2:19 pm #

    I think the monster high dolls faces should have stayed the way they were. They were awesome looking because they were monsters and they were unique. It showed girls it’s ok to be different and not have to live in a perfect world by looking the best. People always find ways to criticise things just because it’s different. If you don’t like them then don’t buy them plain and simple. Maybe they shouldn’t even be called monsters anymore because they don’t look like monsters anymore.

  11. Aiko Sora June 29, 2016 at 7:34 am #

    I like the new dolls. But the “old” Spectra is better so much

  12. Sydney coleman July 1, 2016 at 8:13 am #

    Ok, so first of you suck monster high for changing the face of the dolls, and your going to lose a lot of customers that have bought the dolls from the start, this new face dose not say “buy me I’m cute!” It says “I am creepy and will kill you in your sleep!” I have read not one comment that says “I think that this is a good idea” you know why? Because this sucks, it’s just scary and people bye the dolls because there not just one more plastic prefect thing, they buy them because they love the way that they are NOT prefect know they ARE one more thing that just tells girls “you have to look like this” the saying for monster high is “be yourself, be unique, be a monster!” Not ” we all look like the same thing and if you don’t look like us then you don’t look right!” Come on monster high stop this right know, you are losing so many people that have been buying the dolls sense day 1. And you just lost me to, I’m you do t realize this is a big mistake. You will realize it.

  13. Shelley Winters July 4, 2016 at 9:59 pm #

    My 2 daughters love the individualized uniqueness of the Old Monster High dolls. The new dolls look like Ever After High dolls instead of Monster Dolls. My girls actually play with their Monster High dolls more than Barbie, Equestria girls or Ever After High combined. I also like the old look myself because the WHOLE THEME is ACCEPTING OTHERS even if they are different. Ever After high dolls are more superficial, worried about my DESTINY. BLAH, boring. I’ve only thought 1 of the old Monster High dolls looked scary, Webarella or Wyndowna.

  14. Stacey July 5, 2016 at 6:22 am #

    My daughter and I have been collecting since MH dolls were introduced and we have every doll ever released. We would like to continue our collection but I am very dissapointed with the new dolls.

  15. Glenda Weaver July 8, 2016 at 10:45 pm #

    I am an avid collector and have loved Monster high for almost 4 years now. I am one of the very few people who actually love and enjoy these new dolls and the new animation coming our way in the new film.I have always loved the older look to the dolls otherwise I would never have gotten into collecting. But I also am in love with the new rebooted looks. I run a facebook group dedicated to MH/EAH and many people love them now that there are better pictures and reviews of the new dolls. People should do their research and look at the new pictures and videos. If they convinced some people into giving MH another chance. Then they could convince even more to give things a second chance. I will always be a monster high fan forever.

  16. Courtneyann July 10, 2016 at 12:27 pm #

    I’ve collected monster high dolls ever since they first came out. They were the reason I managed to find friends when I changed schools in the fifth grade! Those two ghoulfriends and I believe strongly that mattel really dropped the ball with the “reboot” line. Monster High dolls were perfect because they weren’t perfect. They dared to be different from traditional dolls that came before it. But now, they’ve gotten too greedy. I really think that they only changed the faces so they could make them cheaper and get a higher profit. Nobody had a problem with how monster high looked. I knew a three year old who adored the dolls just as much as me. Hopefully mattel will realize their mistake and go back to the faces we all know and adore.

    I wish the dolls stayed the same, the new look dosent look as great. Besides, theyre supposed to be different and unique. Now theyre just starting to have the same look from regular barbie dolls, and ever after high. I’ve been a fan and a collector of these dolls ever since they first got released and ive never had a problem. Ive seen girls much younger than me, being either 5 or 6 playing with them. The dolls are supposed to look different from the others, that’s theyre thing. If parents find it “too dark” or “too scary” they have other choices like normal barbie dolls or ever after high. They dont have to complain about Monster High, just simply dont buy them. There’s many people out there like me that enjoy theyre look. In my opinion, monster high dolls ard 10x more gorgeous than those regular normal dolls. The new look dosent suit them, i just wish they left them how they wish, with theyre freaky flaws, and all but yet still so interesting and awesome. Leave them how theyre supposed to be.

    I love the new mini dolls. I am 10 and I think the new dolls will get younger children to get them.

  20. Marcie July 25, 2016 at 10:37 pm #

    I seriously don’t see Ghoulia anywhere. What I do see is Moanica. They said they are keeping her in a “tweet” but I have yet to see the proof and your post unfortunately doesn’t show it either. *sighs* I guess nerdy girls with glasses just aren’t cutesy enough.

    • JMi September 19, 2017 at 12:36 pm #

      This makes my 6 year old really sad, and not as interested. She loves the others, but Ghoulia was her favorite. She’s also not really digging the younger, everyone lives at MH – Adventures of the Ghoul Squad. She like seeing where the Ghouls lived, etc…

  21. Scary Cool Mom July 31, 2016 at 8:43 am #

    Dear Mattel,

    If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I have a very disgusted eight year old, who is not at all happy about the new doll faces. She liked that they were different, they weren’t the least bit scary to her. I have to agree, they were beautiful little works of art. Her first “Barbie” was actually a Abbey Bominable. I loved that my daughter would rather have a unique doll that was not your traditional antiquated view of what beauty should be. You took a subject all kids are scared of “monsters” and made them NOT scary by making them relatable; giving them everyday problems all young adults face. The movies you released with these dolls, showed that all these monsters were kindhearted and fearless, the way we want all of our little girls to grow up to be. What’s beautiful to one person and culture, is not always true for everyone. Don’t soften their faces and make them look like Barbie-wanna-bees. Change them back! They were already gorgeous: you’ve transformed them into something scary. All you are doing is angering a very large following to the point they won’t purchase these new dolls and teaching our girls that if someone doesn’t think they are “approachable” that they have to change themselves to be liked. Shame on you Mattel.

    A couple suggestions:

    For a limited time only, reprint the original dolls (DO NOT CHANGE THEM, THAT MEANS FACES, CLOTHES ETC) giving kids a chance to own those without mom and dad having to search ebay and pay $500 a doll.

    Or go through all you movies and make dolls for the characters you didn’t the first time, that would be awesome to have the whole monster high world to play with if you are a little girl (or boy, not judging, I just have a little girl).

    • Tiff August 19, 2016 at 1:22 pm #

      Yes! I agree with this 100%

  22. D. Pullum August 1, 2016 at 8:46 pm #

    I have to say that I saw the new Draculara, Clawdeen, and Frankie in my local store this week. I like the new Ari (sort of) but, I don’t think Draculara, Clawdeen, or Frankie looked fresh at all. They look like Mattel is trying to turn them into Ever After Students. I guess they figured that since Cupid changed schools, the monsters should too? I am 44 years old and have adored the ghouls and mansters since they first hit the shelves. Having loved the Addams Family and Munsters reruns for as long as I can remember, I have adored the fact that Mattel finally made the dolls I always wanted as a kid. But, now somebody thinks they look too scary. My 4 year old daughter and her niece who is the same age both received frightfully tall ghouls for Christmas this year. My grand-daughter didn’t even get the paper off of her doll’s box before she was squealing “Draculara!! I love Draculara” in delight. My daughter did much the same with her Clawdeen. She crushed the box to her chest and jumped around squealing, “I love her! I love her! I LOVE her!” so, I’m not sure where this too scary bunk comes from; but, that’s all it is in my mind. Pure bunk. Anyway, I don’t want the molded stitches and fur (Clawdeen would never allow her fur to grow on her arms before, why would she start now?). I don’t like the new big, vapidly vacantly staring faces, either. I always adored the fact that Monster High was the line where they weren’t afraid to use bold colors or odd combinations and I have been greatly disappointed in recent years with the muting of the clothing and hair colors on new dolls. It made me afraid that this “reboot” would be more of a death knell for the line. I hate it when I’m right like this.

  23. melissa August 3, 2016 at 4:22 pm #

    Well so much for being unique and different. Not sure why you think that a little girl would be scared of the monster high dolls how they were. We are really turning our kids into a bunch of sissy la las its getting so ridiculous now its down to our toys? The new reboot dolls are just awful! No way am I buying any of them for my daughter who has well over a hundred of them already and has only been into them for less than 2 years. She was 5 when she first noticed them and I was a little hesitant at first until I watched their movies than I was totally for it. What a great message to send to little girls, being different is ok and to embrace yourself no matter what. Im sure not many collectors will even buy these, nor will the girls who have been collecting these for years. Its sad, please don’t try to change the monster high dolls into the prissy perfect airbrushed dolls like the barbies or the forever after. My daughter has zero of those dolls because they teach them to be perfect not themselves. Will not be buying a single reboot doll, no way!

  24. Natalie Collins August 6, 2016 at 7:36 pm #

    I agree. Dont change them. Think about the people buying the dolls. You will lose fans if u choose to change their faces. Think about it. You are changing the whole meaning of monster high. I love monster high and will still be a fan if u change the faces. If no one likes them u will end up losing money and having to stop selling them. Plz do not change them. I have already signed a few petitions. Be yourself, Be unique, Be a monster. Dont change that. MONSTER HIGH FAN 4 LIFE

  25. Karolina August 11, 2016 at 10:07 am #

    Dolls terrible? Impossible! Now these are not monsters but people in costumes. After Monster High since the beginning of this monster, and now what?! They change their faces, classic clothes and even skin tones (are paler).I am outraged and furious!

  26. Tiff August 19, 2016 at 1:09 pm #

    I am seriously not okay with this! I have a 4 year old daughter, and she LOVES monster high. I have recently started collecting them for her, now that she is old enough to appreciate them. I personally love them myself. When I was a girl growing up, all we had for the most part were Barbies. And personally I was never a fan of them. When I played I always had to turn them into anything other then what they were. Id turn Ken into a mummy using toilet paper.( LoL)And my Barbies were always witches, or some sort of mythical creature. My mom had even made me a witch outfit for them, even a broom. So yes when I first saw Monster High Dolls my heart skipped a beat. But I didn’t push them onto my daughter. Because I want her to be herself. And love what she truly loves. She has Barbies and all kinds of dolls. And of course the huge pink Barbie house. But she truly loves Monster high dolls. Last Christmas it’s all she asked for. I’ve seen the new change in the Monster high dolls, and I do not like it. It’s only going against everything they stand for. The new dolls look like Barbies all over again. They all share the same cookie cutter face. The blank stare. I don’t know why exactly this change was made. If it’s for parents who felt Monster high was to scary. I have seen plenty of children of all ages wanting them. The dolls were NEVER scary. They weren’t even made to be scary. They were made for girls to show them it’s okay to be themselves and be different. To be a monster and be proud! For those parents thinking Barbies are such great toys, honestly need to have a reality check. All it’s doing is psychologically making girls believe they have to be the stereotypical Barbie girl. This goes for boys to with Ken. Monster high Dolls were amazing cause non of them looked the same. Kinda like( reality here people). Which is more realistic then Barbie will ever be. And if the change was made because of money, your only going to loose customers, with this idea. Matter of fact from what I have read it could potentially be the end of Monster high. What I don’t understand, is why they didn’t make their parents! It would have been so cool to have a original Dracula Doll or `Werewolf. The list goes on. Or why they didn’t make a Pharaoh doll! I know of a lady that makes them herself, they look amazing. But still why was Pharaoh not made? This reboot is only a step backwards. Please give us back the Monsters we all know and love.

    I always felt guilty about spending so much money on my monster high collection. Mattel has now given me a reason to stop buying monster high dolls. I guess a thank you to Mattel is warranted. I’ll be saving money! Not. I am sad that Mattel changed the faces of their dolls to make them less scary. You’ve lost this customer.

  28. Rosa L. September 7, 2016 at 2:37 pm #

    I am late on the bandwagon but I have been collecting Monster High dolls for a year now (I’m 22). I started collecting because I love how different and detailed these dolls were from anything else on the shelves. I love everything about Monster high and was dissapointed to hear about the reboot. Why ruin a good thing!? I don’t like anything about the new dolls. They look cheap, basic and boring. They are not like the old monster high dolls that I fell in love with. Please stop changing them!!! Oh and the new animation sucks too. I miss the old webisodes.

  29. Candy michelson September 24, 2016 at 7:01 pm #

    I am an adult collector. The only doll I have not gone out of my way to obtain is the ghost buster Frankie. Other than that I wanted to make sure I had at least one of every doll they came out with. I found them a unique twist on my favorite genre. In the long run I will no longer have to find new space for new dolls, because after obtaining ari hauntington I can understand all the negative reaction to the newer line. I collected because they were unique, this new line is not. So, thanks for the memories, this is one collector that will only be looking at the comic con editions.

    • BunnyBoo September 26, 2016 at 1:26 pm #

      If I could, I would just say goodbye to monster high dolls. But i cant, because, they WERE unique, and there is still a glimmer of hope that it will change back. I started collecting them when I was 7, and I loved them. But now, they look like barbie dolls, which is scary!I dont disagree with the idea of the little figurines, they are cute. These big bulging eyes, horrible details, Barbie fashion, reminds me of that saying: “You never know a good thing until its gone”. Hopefully Mattel will realise what they have done…before its too late.

    There is no way I will purchase any of the new sculpts! I’m very disappointed and frustrated. I was so enjoying being a collector of these dolls. Sad!

    Ok I am disappointed with you matel I have 4 kids 3 of which are girls and a son my oldest 2 girls and my son love playing with monster high dolls they love them never thought they where scary. My wife and measy love the dolls and the movies as much as our kids but we are all disappointed in the new look my wife and I both agree they look like jacked up brats dolls or ever after high dolls. I agree with all the people that say what happened to be yourself freaky flawes and all I just see more of the world trying to force kids to be a certain look or way this will be the first year we do not buy the new line of monster high dolls so sad.

    I absolutely LOVE this new look for monster high dolls! Especially love the new body sculpt. Ever since they new dolls came out I have been buying every single one and keep looking for more. I really hope to get all the monster high characters with the new look and body sculpt!

    The new line is rubbish

    I love monster high the original ones. The new ones look like Barbie with a lot make up. The new ones are so fake, cheap, ugly it’s sad. Be original bring them back the way they were!! If wanted to collect Barbie playing dress up then I would, but I don’t I collect the real, the old, the original monster high!

    Does anyone know what’s happening to gholia, spectra, howleen Claude Claudia. Seriously I just about take the reboot (not really) but classrooms family has gone Cleo bff well really a servant and spectra oh and head mistress bloodgood you can’t go changing the story. Draculaura and Frankie did not meet like that. Monster high was going for years. I’m just going to eBay and buying all of these dolls I’ve been collecting, but I also make one of a kind repainted I will only be using the reboot and if a customer wants an old kind we they will have to pay more or try and find it themself tomorrow I’m meeting a lady she is selling 49 dolls for $100 this includes nightmare and bloodgood. I’m going broke but it’s worth it.

    I have quit buying the Monster High Dolls for myself and for my 4 year old granddaughter. We collected them together and both of us loved them! They were so unique. Now they just make me think of the big eyed Bratz dolls. It’s sad that the entire motto of MH was thrown away. The new movies aren’t any better. It’s not MH anymore.

    I think the ideas are awesome (as in monster family, and garden ghouls) but the execution is terrible. I miss the old style. My son and I are both collectors, and we’ll still buy the remaining old dolls, buthe the whole reboot has disappointed me greatly. I make custom MH doll clothes, and trust me when I say the new characters don’t inspire me at all. I REALLY hope Mattel hears it’s fans and brings back the original MH. I also don’t want to get them for my son anymore. I mostly got him into them BECAUSE of their ideals: “Be unique, be yourself, be a monster”.

    If anyone wants to see my custom dresses, search my name on instagram.

    My mother, daughter (6yo), and I all have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, in which we are all sway-back with a forward neck. Your old dolls had the exact same spinal shape as us, which made my daughter (and us) feel special and included. It made us feel unique. We were proud to have dolls that were proud of their oddities. We are bendy and hypermobile; often times labeled as freaks ourselves. Your dolls promoted that each individuals’ freaky flaws are what make them freaky fabulous. If you were sending that as your message with these lovely monsterifique dolls, then why allow the bullying of others to change you to their trends and societal expectations? Isn’t that what you were preaching against? So when you straightened the new rebooted doll’s spines, took away their unique facial features and makeup looks, redid their hair to fit-in with what conservative society deemed “appropriate”, you conformed to their expectations, and in doing so told my daughter that her uniqueness is no longer acceptable and beautiful?! How dare you Mattel! Your Monster High dolls were a breath of fresh air to those of us that do not follow the preppiness of sugar-coated pop culture that parades our mainstream media society. Those of us that prefer a darker more creative way of life. We loved your dolls just the way they were. Like many have already said, you had a cult-adult following, and were making a ton off of us collectors. Our children loved your dolls just the way they were. Now they cannot stand the Barbie wanna-be’s that no longer feel good in their freaky monsterifique skin. You are sending them mixed messages, and it is NOT okay. If your big box stores don’t want to sell your beloved dolls, seek out other vendors. I know specifically that places such as Hot Topic, or even Barnes & Noble would be wonderful places to sell them. I doubt Toys-R-Us is going to turn away a toy-item. Oh well to Walmart and Target. We’d rather have our old monsters back!

    I am an adult collector and I have also been buying Monster High for my 6yrs old granddaughter since she was one. I like the idea of the families but I am completely disappointed with the reboot of the dolls and will not be buying them! There are Barbies and plenty of other girly dolls for the soccer/religious, etc. moms, so why ruin a wonderful, successful alternative line for the rest of us? And after only 6yrs! I believe Mattel has made a fatal mistake and will be losing their loyal customers if they continue the reboot. Please bring back the original style.

    Never thought I would write about dolls, but the Monster High dolls are the only dolls my daughter ever liked. Not baby dolls, Barbie, nor Bratz, nothing until Monster High. I bought all of the first characters and saved for months to go to the 2014 Comic Con specifically to buy the new Monster High. We bought Iris and Manny Taur and were over the moon. At first, we thought the cheap Christmas promotion dolls were a fluke because their faces were “off”, We like some of the new characters but we really don’t buy them (as my daughter puts it their faces look funny) As she’s gotten older she sees the details in the dolls, she’s 16 now, so maybe not Mattel’s market anymore. But they should do some real marketing to girls and find out what they want.

    And they should consider listening when fans like myself and others stop buying multiple dolls. I used to buy the entire line for my daughter the day I saw new ones on the shelf, (And yes, we open the packages) now I wait to get them when they go on clearance. It’s just disappointing that their new designers have come in and ruined the product message. “How do you Boo” – please. Bye Boo – that’s how I Boo.

    I am not a fan of the reboot-where is Operetta?!! My daughter, however still loves them all,so we will collect them. It’s a shame the dolls have lost so much of what made them special.

    Monster high amazing modern freaky fun until it changed i think that the reboot ones for younger kids should go alongside the classic ones for young adults and adult collectors. I feel that its been an imersive story and really selling a modern style but they need the articulation the detailing and the story thats what makes monsterhigh .. i would hope to see pharoh and the zomboyz dolls been made with the uniforms and the charactors brought in from that other school been made with those teachers that big wigged zombie also sparky from freaky fusion … i think a love story for valentine and cupid be a good movie and a series of zodiac monsters just a sugestion hope mattel improves good luck with the future

    I only collect the Skelitas cause head to toe she is a monster skeleton. All the others are too cute and these new ones are worse.. stop calling them monsters, call the designers monsters cause they screwed monster dolls here!! Have to read the package just to see what monster it’s suppose to be.. Just look like colored barbies.. Sad, just Sad.. won’t collect anymore just like everyone else who commented on here.

    I’m so disappointed in the new Monster High line. The dolls have lost their charm and quirky uniqueness, “Freaky Flaws” and all went out the window. Even their motto was changed by some businessman who clearly didn’t know the fan base for this doll. I’ve been waiting for them to change the dolls back to their original molds after realizing the horrible error they made and after realizing they had a gold mine on their hands. Even this is obviously just a wish on my part or they’d be releasing more than this cheap set of toys. Yes, I’d have loved to have Draculaura’s dad, but as a real doll, articulated and with a set of clothing and a regular fashion doll size; not this cheap “McDonald’s” type toy. Why couldn’t they have just expanded on the original line when the face and body molds were so good! The packaging with it’s beautiful artwork and all that came in the packaging with the doll has also suffered, as have the dolls themselves. Why change the molds in the first place? Did a couple of overly sensitive moms write in to complain that they were too “Monsterish?” Now,we’re forced to look for old Monster High dolls at garage sales, thrift shops and Ebay! I’d rather buy new ones. Any plans, Mattel? I wrote a nice letter to them about this and they basically said, screw off, we’re moving on, as Mattel does with it’s dolls….However, I see new Barbies out every year. So, what gives, Mattel? Nothing for those of us who want something more unique than a dang bland Barbie? Many, many of us want our Monsters back and with the original molds. If Mattel put effort into popular lines, like the beloved Monster High, they might just make some money for their trouble, making customers happy at the same time.

    I love the old versions better. The new ones now have a new feature: no joints in the arms, hands, or legs. Just what people want. A new version of Barbie. The faces look blank like you’re staring at a wall. The unique spark is gone as they now sell them cheap but “you get what you pay for”. Ya I can now afford more but it’s cookie cutter toys that I see sold in bottom end stores. Are there people who buy the reboot versions of these? I am sad. 🙁
