Two of my nieces are absolutely Monster High mad at the moment - as with the majority of girls in their years at school. At first glance they may seem a little creepy but I must admit that if Monster High had been out and about when I was little then I would have actually liked dolls (well the Monster High ones anyway) and I am quite upset that I am far too old for them now! I bought this for one of my niece's towards her Christmas present and I just know that she will be so excited when she opens it and plays with it on Christmas day. I couldn't resist having a quick peek at it before wrapping it and I told myself that "this was for purely checking that everything was included that should be....."! I was also very lucky in that I managed to 'snag' one of these from Amazon during their recent 'price war' with Argos etc and so I managed to get this at a greatly reduced price than the normal Amazon price and so I am absolutely over the moon with this purchase. I don't think I would have bought it at the full rrp if I am honest but at the normal price on Amazon of around £30 I think that it is good value especially when comparing to other plastic playsets and the fact that the Spectra Vondergeist doll is included as she would probably be normally around the £20 mark on her own.

The party room opens out from a compact carry case (which includes a handy fold away handle) to form the disco area and fully extended the full length of the case is just over 85cm long, however when playing with it the side 'wings' would be in a more folded in position. The main back part of the room measures just over 43cm. The height of it excluding the carry handle is just over 30.5cm high and the depth is around 11cm. I must say that the two 'wings' on either side of the main center part do seem a little flimsy but having seen a lot of the plastic based toys that kids are into this seems pretty much the norm, however I would say that it probably shouldn't be given to a child under the recommended age of 6 years and up (unless they are quite nice with playing with toys) as I couldn't see the 'wings' not eventually being broken off if roughly handled.

The party room requires 3 AAA batteries which are not included, so make sure you have some in for Christmas day if you plan on using the included MP3 player plug in (this wire/plug is located within the base of the room, underneath) otherwise there would be some disappointment I would imagine. You will need a small philips/posidrive screwdriver to open and close the battery compartment.

The party room features three fold down seats and a fold down juice bar along with a high backed gold chair. The DJ table that is also provided has a little clip attachment to help stand the Spectra doll up behind it which clips around her waist. The DJ table also has little set of skeleton hands to hold the little pretend laptop that is provided and has little pretend record turnstiles which I think is really cute. There are also two little pretend floor speakers and two little pretend hanging speakers along with two cocktail drink glasses and a pair of gold headphones for Spectra.

The 13 wishes Spectra Vondergeist doll is also included and she stands at around 30cm tall and has a purple and gold floaty sleeved dress on with removable chain link shoes and chain link belt.

Spectra Vondergeist is the daughter of The Ghosts and is 16 years old. As she is a ghost she can float through walls and listen in to other students thereby earning her a reputation as a bit of a gossip. She believes her friends are Twyla, Clawdeen Wolf, Ghoulia Yelps and Catrine de Mew however she is never really seen hanging out with anyone in particular.

Finally the party room features a little clip on the front to help keep the doors closed when the room is folded up into it's handy carry case setting.

As I have said above a really good little set and I think very good value as it comes with the Spectra Vondergeist doll and the little accessories too. Now I just need to hope that my second baby that is due this month is a girl and that Monster High is still 'in' when she is older so I can play with the dolls and sets myself!

Good value for money. My granddaughter loves it; especially as she can use her mp3 player and play her favourite songs. I would have been happy to pay full price for this but got it at a much lower price. It arrived on time and am really pleased with my purchase.

It's a lovely item, however the dolls hair was very greasy and oily, I tried washing it, using talc and dry shampoo but nothing worked. And the actual "room" wouldn't lock properly. Was going to return it but was told I would have to pay return postage so it went in the bin instead.

Was very pleased with this purchase arrived quickly and well packaged and I got it for a good price I begrudge paying full price for plastic playsets as generally I find they are not worth the money saved 15.00 on this so very happy.

Not the most amazing thing in the world! It doesn't really do anything. Basically, it's just a plastic case. You can plug an MP3 player into it and play music through the speakers, but to be honest, that's about it. I was expecting flashing lights or a rotating stage but it's more of a backdrop to the dolls. I would recommend it if your child is a massive Monster High fan and likes to collect the toys, but if not, I would give this a miss. It's just "OK".

This is a portable item that can be stored away when not in use or carried to grans or a friends house. It comes with Spectra doll all glammed up in her party dress. It has a dj booth and a dance floor. Seats are on the doors that open out along with a shelf for your drink. An iPod/mp3 player can be connected and plays through speakers in it. Its not great sound but my daughter enjoys the novelty of it. There are a few accessories but not in abundance. Good for a monster high fan.

daughter loves this. Background is cardboard and the plastic bits are a bit flimsy but that's what all of these toys are like so I expected it. However saying that it has been played with a lot over the last few months and is still fine.

Bought this for my daughters for Christmas and they absolutely love it. Everyday is a Monster High Party.

Money well spent.

Bought this for my little cousin, she can't stop playing with it. This also doubles up as a carry case and a portable speaker for a phone or mp3 player.

Bought for my daughter starting her monster high collection. The doll is good but the actual play set isn't - I imagine it will not last long. I bought at a reduced price, would have been even more disappointed if paid the full rrp for this.
