Toy Fair 2013 : A Monster High Teaser

We are getting down the the wire..mere days away from the "official" kick off of the New York Toy Fair 2013....but the reveals just aren't stopping...and I am sleepy. Sooooo sleepy. NO REST FOR THE WICKED ...and especially no rest allowed when new Monster High images drop in our lap. I'll sleep next week.

Mattel is set to fill your lives with ghoulish teens brains. Have they done the episode where they eat all the kids in the rival human high school down the road? Been waiting for that one. While we don't seem any closer to blood splattered Monster High dolls, there are quite a few things coming for 2013. Here's a small sample...

Monster High® 13 Wishes Doll Assortment : When Howleen Wolf® discovers a genie lantern, she turns Monster High® upside down! Creature chaos ensues, particularly when Lagoona Blue® is turned into a freshwater sea monster! But that’s not all! Along the way, the ghouls make two new friends: Gigi Grant™ and Twyla™. Dolls come with pet, diary, brush, doll stand and character-specific accessories. Each sold separately.

- Gigi Grant™ is the daughter of a Genie, and so she must grant the wishes of her finder - whether good or bad! But she looks charmed while doing it in a classic genie look with gold detailing and accessories.
- Daughter of the Boogie Man, Twyla™, is shy and misunderstood, she hides under normies’ beds to capture their nightmares rather than adding to them like her dad. Lacking a mean streak, she looks adorable in a cute outfit with ruffled skirt and a bow at her neck.
- Lagoona Blue® doll, the resident Sea Monster, is wished from Saltwater to Freshwater and has an all new look to match! This special Lagoona® doll shimmers in a pink and black dress with a sheer blue glittery overlay and sea-sational accessories - like a fishbowl purse.

  1. The girls love the Monster High Dolls. I saw some of the 13 Wishes Dolls in the store this week. I can't wait for the new movie. The Genie is cool, but my favorite new character is Twyla. I think it is so cute that she steals bad dreams. What a neat concept!

  2. Monster High is so cool! I saw some music festival dolls at Dollar General for 15$!!!!! I really love Lagoona's new look!!!!
