Since I have not yet taken any new photos yet, I might as well just write about these dolls I saw a few months ago in a toy store. I don’t know if you can call this a review, but I am not in any way a professional product reviewer or tester or whatever you may call it. I just wanna write my thoughts about these dolls.
MONSTER HIGH DOLLS
I know these dolls have been in the market for quite sometime and they have a strong following. But when I saw these particular designs, I had mixed feelings. I was a bit shocked? surprised? appalled? I find it disturbing. I was thinking, I won’t give my little girls dolls like these. Am I just overreacting? That’s why they are called Monster High Dolls, because they are monsters! I have 3 MH dolls myself which I bought from thrift stores, but they were not as troubling as the above. Maybe I’m just getting old, or maybe I’m too old fashioned. Maybe, I just got used to Barbie!
I was supposed to write about my thoughts on the new Bratz the first time they came back last year (?) and feature my Bratz collection at same time but I was busy with something else. Anyway, when they disappeared from the shelves to hibernate, I felt sad. Bratz is one of the reasons I started collecting dolls. Yes, I have not yet given them the spotlight in my blog. Anyway, when I saw these dolls again, I thought they were just copycats, dupes, fake? They are even more disproportionate than before. The eyes are lackluster, flat, unlike the original. Yes, the accessories maybe better than before, but I still prefer the old ones.
