You’ve seen the fashion dolls: the Barbies and Bratz and countless carbon copies of ‘hip’ and ‘trendy’ dolls. If your daughter loves these kinds of dolls, but wants something a little more fun and original, then you should check out the Monster High Cleo DeNile and Deuce Gorgon doll set. These Mattel dolls form part of the unique and gothy Monster High collection, featuring horror-movie-style figures and putting them in a cute and up-to-the-minute high school setting. They come with their own cool fashion trends with a monster twist, and also come with their own pets, such as rats and snakes. Somehow they manage to tread the divide, being from a scary subject but still being cute.
Cleo DeNile is the daughter of the Mummy and his is the fashion leader of the school. She wears an Egyptian princess themed outfit, with bandages and bold gold jewellery. Her pet is Hisette the snake, and she loves it. Another person she love sis her boyfriend Deuce Gorgon, whose mother is the famous and deadly medusa. He inherited her special power, so wears sunglasses so that he doesn’t turn his friends to stone, though – being young- luckily if he does turn anyone to stone the effects wear off after 24 hours. His pet is Perseus the rat. Deuce is dressed in snakeskin pattered clothes and a hip jacket.
Both dolls come as a pack together – which is adorable – and they come with journals and display stands, which are perfect if you plan on collecting them and showing them off properly. The multiple uses of play and collection mean that they can appeal to a very wide age range of girls above and beyond the 6-year-old recommendation. You can even collect more such as Frankie Stein the daughter of Frankenstein or Draculaura daughter of Dracula. There are even Monster High books, yearbooks (or ‘fearbooks’), journals, bags and more available.
The main feature of these, aside from their cute originality, is the incredible attention to detail in their outfits. These really are little works of art and already a hit with older doll collectors as well as little girls. They’ll make a perfect gift.
