With more than six million webisode views and constant online buzz from fans driving interest and excitement, the property’s popularity has translated into success offline, where the Monster High Core Doll Assortment is currently the number two fashion doll YTD in the UK*.
Now a leading global girls franchise, Monster High has successfully expanded outside of the toy aisle with an extensive licensing programme including clothing, stationery, make-up, accessories and jewellery.
