What It Is
The characters from Monster High are starring in their first DVD movie, Monster High Ghouls Rule. Instead of staying home on Halloween, the Monster High gang is taking back the holiday and dressing in over-the-top costumes that commemorate their famous monster heritages. They call it "haunt couture."
Cleo de Nile wears a teal, gold, and black dress with puffed-out skirt. The doll comes with a matching gold mask, pyramid-inspired shoes, a cauldron of punch, a teal bucket for collecting candy, and a hairbrush.
Is It Fun?
As with all the other Monster High dolls, the new Ghouls Rule dolls have fabulous fashions and great detail. Monster High fans will like the new outfit for Cleo de Nile and being able to play out the Halloween storyline from the new DVD.
Given the sophistication and elegance of the costumes, though, these dolls will appeal to collectors as well, and for kids they combine elements of play and display, which is what will appeal to girls who love the dolls but may not want to engage in younger fashion play.
As with all Monster High dolls, there's an element of humor in the storyline and the details of the clothes and accessories that really appeals to its fans.
Who It’s For
Monster High Ghouls Rule Cleo de Nile is for ages 6 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Additional Ghouls Rule dolls include Frankie Stein, Draculaura, and Clawdeen Wolf. Each is sold separately.
In addition to being gorgeous, these dolls and their storyline also have a message for kids: Everyone is different, and those differences should be celebrated. Delivering that message through the monster theme with style and wit has certainly contributed to the popularity of Monster High.
