Mattel have re-released some of the original dolls collection for Monster High which include; Monster High Draculaura Doll
, Monster High Frankie Doll
, Monster High Cleo Doll
and Monster High Clawdeen Doll
so far. The dolls come in their original outfits which they wear in the Monster High webisodes and also come with a doll stand but they do not come with a diary, handbag or their pet like with the original original dolls when they were first released.
The dolls are still beautifully made and it's nice to have a copy of them in their original outfits to match the webisodes and the attention to detailing is still wonderfully done.
The Draculaura doll is absolutely gorgeous and stands at her normal height of around 27cm tall (the average height for the girl dolls is normally around 27cm but there are a couple of shorter dolls such as Twyla and River Styxx) and as normal her arms, elbows, wrists, head and knees are jointed and so fully poseable. Draculaura is wearing her normal waistcoat over blouse with ruffles around the neck, skirt, boots and tights. Her blouse has fishnet style sleeves which have ruffles around the wrists and a ruffle detail on the neck and the attached waistcoat has stitch detailing. She has safety pin earrings and a pink flower necklace and her boots are pink with black wrap, lace and heart detail on them. Her Skirt is a white satin style with pink edging and her fishnet tights stop at the top of the boot just like the first dolls did. Her hair is gorgeously soft in the normal black bunches with pink highlights style and her fringe has been set with some sort of hair spray to keep it in it's stiff fringe form like her character but her hair can be washed and re-styled if wished. Her makeup has been beautifully done and the extra touch of the glitter around her eyes and her signature heart shaped beauty mark that her webisode character has near her left eye has even been done. Draculaura comes with a pink coloured doll stand but no hair brush or diary as usual with the dolls.
Draculaura is the 1600 year old daughter of Count Dracula. Draculaura is a vegan vampire and doesn't like blood or even saying the word blood. Her best friends are Clawdeen Wolf and Frankie Stein and she is dating Clawd Wolf. She is also friends with Lagoona Blue, Ghoulia Yelps and Cleo de Nile. Draculaura is a a lovely character and is always nice and friendly to everyone but she does get upset the easiest. As Draculaura can't see her reflection she often doesn't know if her makeup, hair and clothes look okay but she has gotten used to doing things without a mirror. Draculaura is part of the Fearleading squad and has a pet bat called Count Fabulous.
The Original Ghouls Collection Draculaura doll is beautifully made and my only disappointment is that this new range doesn't come with either diary's, pets or hairbrushes. It would have been really nice if Mattel had just brought out the original originals range again including their pets etc as these are really hard to get hold of nowadays but still this is a lovely doll and to have her look like her webisode character for my nieces when they visit to play with her is wonderful.
