Save the Original Monster High Ghouls!!!

I just read this post on Little Corp Goth Girl's blog that made me FURIOUS.  Mattel is "redoing" the Monster High dolls in 2016 to look more like cheerleaders!!  This is gross and wrong, in my not-so-humble opinion.  The appeal of the Monster High characters is that they are themselves, totally unique, NOT cookie cutters of what we are told we should be, and their darkness is celebrated.  The picture of the "new" Draculaura just made me want to gag.

Please check out Sylvie's post, and I hope you'll decide to sign the petition asking Mattel not to discontinue the original dolls.  (The link is in the post.)

Save the ghouls of Monster High!!!


  1. Thanks for signing, Lucretia and for sharing my outrage :)

  2. This is why I don't like the commercialization and mainstreaming of goth stuff. They'll ruin it every time.

    1. I agree with you to a point, but honestly, if these dolls had been around when I was a kid, I would have probably found my goth side a LOT sooner. Back then, it was Barbie or nothing. Sigh...

    2. Same here! I do agee to what nightwind`s comment but I too would have found my goth side sooner. I had Barbie or nothing then they came out with Jem and I went nuts over it! I would have loved Monster High as a little girl.

    3. They're having a COW over this on the Elders of Goth FB site, hehehe!!

      I'm looking through my local stores now to buy up the originals before the prices get racked up. When I went to Toys R Us last night, I found a very minimal amount of Monster High stuff on the shelves, but the Ever After junk was spilling over into the MH section. Sacrilege!!! ;-)
