New Wave of Monster High Dolls

I'm a little bit hooked on these adorable, cheap dolls. I ordered the new Cleo de Nile Dawn of the Dance doll (below on the right) directly from the Mattel shop today. The list price is $16.99. I got free shipping and if you sign up for a free account you get 10% off your purchase. Because I live in taxable New York, the 10% tax was pretty much canceled out but my total was only $16.51 complete! Not bad at all.

As always, you should shop around for your best deal as many are overcharging for these dolls. There are a total of 9 figures not counting the plushies right now. Some dealers on eBay are selling the entire collection of 9. Do the math and find your best price.

There is one caution I should add. The joints on these dolls are fragile in that I've had arms fall out from the lightest handling. It doesn't happen all the time but it will happen. Additionally, some of their little accessories are attached with clear rubber bands. I suggest leaving the bands. I have already lost one leg fin from one of the girls. My Deuce Gorgon's legs were detached inside his pants. The pants are so tight that I didn't notice until I had discarded all the packaging. Luckily I have a friend who can fix this for me.
Save the boxes and the receipts.

  1. Thanks for this info--those prices are great! My daughter is addicted to these dolls--especially after we attended San Diego Comic Con and found the black and white Frankie Stein. (My advice--don't ever discover the annoying Monster High cartoons on You Tube, though. The opening music is just too much.) ;)

    I really love your blog, and I've given you a lovely blog award. You can read about it here, if you'd like to play. Congratulations!

  2. You're the second person I've read that has had an issue with Deuce's leg. I guess that's an issue with the design.
