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!!!
