Whether you are a fan of it or not, the epic success of Twilight has proven one thing: Tweens love stories about vampires, werewolves and monsters trying to survive high school!
Today’s youth like to take a cheery trip to the dark side. Of course they are drawn to and relate to these kinds of stories, real high school is full of blood suckers!
Mattel has recently launched a freakishly fashionable franchise called Monster High! It’s like Clueless meets Harry Potter. Tweens get monsters, vampires, and those who are furry challenged along with fashionably fantastic clothing!
The Monster High storyline is set around the descendants of the world’s most famous monsters trying to brave high school. Rolling out as part of the franchise is a series of books by young adult author Lisi Harrison. The first book in the series, Monster High, debuted Sept. 1, 2010 at #9 on the New York Time’s best sellers list for chapter books. “Refreshingly relative and clever, Monster High is a novel with a monster twist on young love, teen angst and the challenges of fitting in”.
Accompanying the books are a full line of products including webisodes, toys, fashion accessories, footwear, Halloween costumes and a clothing line available at Justice.
Monster High style mixes a little bit of Avril Lavine, a dash of fashion week runway, a dab of rock and roll and a pinch of good old fashion classic monster movie.
Fun, Quirky and Unique…each doll/character in the line has its own freaky fashion style along with some accessories that are to die for!
Frankie Stein: the new girl at school who is the 15 day old creation of Frankenstein and his bride.
Draculaura: the vegan vampire child of Count Dracula who carries a frilly umbrella so she can take walks in the sun.
Clawdeen Wolf : the fashionable daughter of The Werewolf who has to tweeze, pluck and shave unwanted hair between classes.
Fashion, humor and monsters! This line would have “turned” me into a doll lover for sure if it was around when I was a pre-teen!
Meet a few of the kids from Monster High:
The Monster High clothing line is exactly what mini fashionistas have been waiting for. Edgy, fun and fashionable the clothing features Monster High’s signature Skullette (a skull with lashes and a pink bow) on tops, bottoms, sleepwear, cosmetics and accessories.
Mini hipsters are contantly asking me where to get some cheery dark side clothing, and up until now its been next to impossible for the pre-teen set.
