My daughter is a huge Monster High fan, well G1 Monster High. Anytime Mattel offers a new doll or dolls done in the original style she’s all about it. The new Howliday Love Edition two-pack is no exception. It’s a cute Valentine’s Day doll set.
Recently we ordered the set from Entertainment Earth, which is not sold out. The set cost $59.99 plus tax.
Upon receiving the dolls the first thing that you notice are the colors. They are bright, fun and striking.
The packaging features both Cleo de Nile and Deuce Gorgon as the couple they were in the original series (don’t get me started on the new show’s choices) which is what many fans prefer.
We loved the little snake characters for Cleo and Deuce on the upper left of the packaging.
Snake theming runs through the set. Cleo has snakes for her heels on her shoes and she has them as an accent to her bodice. Deuce has the snake theming in his jacket and snake faces on his shoes.
As always the details are what make Monster High so amazing. Check out the candies in the heart shaped box!
Our dolls are remaining in the box, so I can’t speak to the quality of the dolls outside the boxes, but from what I can see they look great. My daughter commented that she like Deuce’s mold better in this doll than previous versions.
This was the write-up from Entertainment Earth:
“The original Cleo De Nile and Deuce Gorgon dolls have returned, and they’re in love! To celebrate Valentine’s Day, the creators of Monster High introduce a collectible set of everyone’s favorite spooky sweethearts. Iconic looks, deadly details and premium packaging make for a boo-tiful display! Dolls are approximately 10 3/4-inches tall, are fully articulated and cannot stand alone. Doll stands included. Ages 14 and up.
Cleo De Nile doll is royally chic in a satin dress with asymmetric knit sleeves and a ruffled gold mesh hem. Stunning golden hardware at her bodice features two snakes who are smitten! A bespoke purse features the same print as her dress, which is a skullette version of the devoted couple. Matching golden accessories – a detailed headband and serpent heels – polish her look. Deuce Gorgon brings his sweetheart a spiderweb balloon for the morbidly romantic day! He looks dreadfully dapper in a shimmering scale-printed suit and signature tinted shades. Cleo De Nile gifts her boo a heart-shaped box of his favorite dark chocolates, while Deuce Gorgon offers her a rare monster flower from his mother’s garden. Other storytelling pieces include two heart-shaped valentines that feature original artwork.”
Some places may still have these dolls available. I know BigBadToyStore has them for $69.99. Amazon has them for $60 right now. Sites like eBay and Mercari also have them but they are much higher in price.
If you are a classic Monster High fan this set is worth it!
