Monster highs suck

Monster highs are good for kids as they got changed and that’s it, I wish monster high would have the old ones back and then have a type of doll for the kids too but have dolls for teens and adults as I really miss the old monster highs and the new ones aren’t good for teens and adults
age 14+

It's called Monster High

Look it's called Monster high not monster preschool kissing and stuff is a thing but this is what highschool students do! They do dress inappropriately but they're teenagers if you don't like your kids seeing this kind of friendly stuff even though there's things like kissing and drama and monsters then don't let them watch it! I'm 14 I know already what's appropriate and what's not but there's some stupid 11 year old on here who thinks they know everything about mh when they don't

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (13 ):
Kids say (32 ):

MONSTER HIGH offers fans a chance to get to know more about the characters from the Mattel Monster High doll and book series. The site is centered around a cute theme -- sassy werewolf, vampire, and other ghoulish high school girls who, along with a couple of ghastly guys, radiate self-confidence and attitude (despite having fangs, blue skin, and other unusual accessories).

Sure, there are a few plugs for Monster High merchandise. And some areas of the site, such as the locker decoration tool, require you to enter a code from one of the dolls. However, there's plenty of fun, free content to play with -- without buying anything. Kids can send a scream to their favorite character or email friends safe, clean e-cards through the site. Kids can also watch quick videos, download wallpaper and other items, and access several fun games, including a soccer and a Frogger-type game.

Online interaction: Kids can send Monster Mail through the site -- e-cards that tell their friends they're "clawsome." (The cards can be e-mailed or printed out.)

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
