One Walmart near me added a spot for the Garden Ghouls.

Looks like there's also a Lagoona and an Ari. If these are still getting released that is

No elbow articulation on a doll MH sized or larger. I used to collect just small dolls like SSC so I'm okay with the idea of smaller dolls being less articulated but for some reason once they get about MH teen sized I can't deal with stiff arms. It's why I was okay with Novi Stars and don't have any urge to rebody them but any unarticulated MH dolls (except the tweens and younger of course) that I like need to be rebodied right away.

Monster High and Ever After High has spoiled us rotten

And now that we know that a good articulated doll with painted accessories an detailed clothes can be done, we are having a hard time settling with less


True enough. Before collecting MH, the only dolls I'd even considered were BJDs. Pullips were a maybe, mostly for the clothes, but the price tag and the big heads kind of turned me away. Then MH sucked me in and I was doomed to doll-loving forever.


I was actually the same except that the big heads of Pullips weren't an issue for me it was only the price. I actually at one point was able to get a tiny articulated doll called a Konji for around $20 and I was actually really disappointed how fiddly and fragile she was. After that I was at peace with tiny playline dolls being less articulated.

R.I.P. articulation in MH. I think it's gone for good at this point.

The Dance/Ballet dolls are supposed to be articulated.

By the way by "save" I just mean avoid any kind of cancellation. I was just hoping maybe the brand would renew interest in spooky things.

Disney Junior just started airing a show about a little vampire girl who moves from Transylvania to Pennsylvania. Could this show make spooky things trendy again and give Monster High the boost it desperately needs?

huh, so I guess the distribution on this line is just really weird then

More like every MH line. I've yet to see one that had logical distribution across the board. Especially for deluxe or exclusive releases, which seem to scatter extra oddly.

I still remember the Great Rochelle Exodus for Haunted. How Australia ended up with everybody else's stock, I'll never understand.


More like toys in general. All it takes is the main retailers in the US to say "pass" on a line for the company to start scrambling to find international buyers so they can at least recoup development costs.

It's still weirder than anything MH has done in the past. The lines have 3 dolls and yet the cases only have 2 dolls. I wonder if the stores were refusing to carry them if the case size was bigger than 2.

Is it just me or is Twyla short packed? I've only seen her in the wild twice and both times were crazy-wonky :/

I really think the case assortments for these are 2 random dolls per case.

I found one at Target and was surprised it took me three Targets to find her.  She must be the short packed of the set.
I was wondering because there were 2 Beatrix's each at 2 of mine but no Lumina :(

I think they are just randomly packing 2 dolls per case because I've seen plenty of Wingrid, Lumina once, and never even saw Beatrice once.

Meanwhile in Mattel:
- Cut costs, we've gotta lower the budget even more.
- But Mr VicePresident, they will look like fakies!
- Good thinking! Let's hire fakie-makers! They'll charge lower.

It's amazing how much of a difference a simple thing like hair styling can make. I mean I'm sure they have full heads of hair unlike fakies.

Yes you can. I used my extra pink pouch to make another bear. :) I wanted to see if tilting the mold to fill the ears with some of the pink goop right after filling it would help it to expand better into the smaller cavities, which it did. No missing ears this time.

The actual smooshin mold is made out of a hard, semi transparent plastic that clips and locks together. They come in a flimsy plastic egg shell, but that's just to make them like a surprise blind box. They want you to collect all the different molds, basically, but you don't need it to make the mold work.

It is nice to have the egg nest that comes in the kit because it lets the mold lay level while the goop foams and cures. Unless you think you can jimmy-rig up something to keep it level for four or more hours, then you might be able to get away with only buying the refills that come with an extra mold when they become available and save yourself some money. I think they will also be selling refills without the molds, just colorant and accessories, so you can keep reusing the ones you have and make new smooshins in different colors.

Do you think the molds can be used for other materials or that the goop could be used in other molds?

Can you reuse the mold?

I still wonder what he's working on now.

They are pretty nice budget dolls. I just don't understand why they couldn't come up with a new name for this line.

If they do come out, I hope they're easier to find than last year's (I never did find those).  I really love the Draculaura.

I'm honestly worried they won't come out because of how Walmart botched up last year's. Which would be a shame because I like these a lot better than last year's.

Looks like we're getting Rochelle this week! I think her new voice is okay, but her new outfit is so lovely.

No more Scaris? Anyway I love the outfit too! I wonder if we'll get a doll with her wearing it? :biggrin:

There's no more monster world so it's just her hiding in Paris now.

They were found at the Mattel Store. I'm honestly thinking if these pop up at a brick and mortar and not just on Amazon it will be at TRU since they are the only ones that still have an EAH section.
