Ever After High Dolls
Apple White Versus Raven Queen
Mattel has created a spin off from their popular doll line Monster High called Ever After High. The doll series takes C.A. Cupid, former Monster High student, daughter of Eros, to a new school entitled Ever After High. There are currently six character dolls on the market with the Ever After High Label. They include Apple White, daughter of Snow White, Briar Rose, daughter of sleeping beauty, Maddie Hatter, daughter of the Mad Hatter, and Raven Queen, daughter of the Evil Queen, Ashlynn Ella, daughter of Cinderella and Hunter Huntsman, son of the huntsman.
Ever After High asks who you are? A rebel or a royal. But before you answer you should probably know the royals are the daughter of the good guys who are promised happy ever after in their stories. The rebels are the children who like Raven Queen do not want to follow in their parents footsteps. They don't want to follow blindly the path that is laid out before them. Raven questions the school norms and questions whether she wants to be the villain she has been fated to play.
I have only seen pictures of this doll line and so far I am liking what I'm seeing. From pictures it looks like these dolls will have a more robust body than the Monster High ghouls. It has been suggested that your Monster High dolls could wear your fairy tale gal clothing - which is a plus; however, the Ever After dolls will be unable to fit the monster high trappings.

C.A. Cupid Doll
The Ever After version of C.A. Cupid is softer and sweeter.
Originally part of the Monster High line of dolls, C.A. Cupid, has under gone an extensive makeover as part of the Ever After High line of dolls. Her pink curly hair is longer. Her complexion shows more warmth than her previous version. Her wings are more feathery and her shoes are adorable.
2 Pack - Ashlynn Ella and Hunter Huntsman
A royal and a rebel, Ashlynn Ella and Hunter Huntsman, are secretly dating at Ever After High. This cute couple has been packaged together.
Welcome to Ever After High
Here is the webisode that appears on everafterhigh.com introducing Ravel Queen and the story of the rebels.
Ever After High Trademarks & Characters
These are some of the names that Ever After High has trademarked: Apple White (daughter of Snow White), Prince Daring Charming (son of Prince Charming), Dexter Charming, Darling Charming, Briar Beauty (daughter of Sleeping Beauty), Cedar Woods (daughter of Pinocchio), Cerise Hood (daughter of Red Riding Hood), Hopper Croakington (son of the Frog Prince?), Kitty Cheshire (daughter of the Cheshire Cat), Gus & Hilda Crumb (children of Hansel and Gretel?), and Ashlynn Ella (daughter of Cinderella).
Madeline "Maddie" Hatter has been noted in one of the current webisodes for the Ever After franchise. She is the daughter of the Mad Hatter, wears hats and loves tea. She also is the only character who can hear the Ever After narrators, which probably makes her seem a little crazy to her peers.
Another noted character is Hunter Huntsman (names a little lack luster) and he is the son of the Huntsman. He is secretly dating Ashlynn Ella according to the Ever After narrators.
Tiny is another character. He is a giant, possibly the son of the giant from Jack and the Beanstalk, though this has not be proven.
Cerise Hood Becomes Ever After High Doll
Cerise Hood's family life is very hush hush. Turns out her Mom actually married the big bad wolf. I guess he wasn't so bad after all. Cerise features a red hood like her mother's that she uses to cover up her wolf like ears.
Blondie Lockes is a Royal
The girl behind the magic mirror has beautiful golden hair. With a blue and white feature dress this doll seems very sweet.

The Prince Charming and Snow White Legacy
I'm a little confused...
In the original fairy tale Snow White marries Prince Charming and they get their happily ever after. So why wouldn't Prince Charming's sons and Snow White's daughter be siblings in Ever After High? Instead Daring Charming and Apple White are destined to be paired together? Did the original fairy tale characters take a side trip in their story? Did Snow White and Prince Charming's happily ever after involve other people?
Charmed by Daring
Wouldn't Apple and Daring be related?
Friction from the Rebels and the Royals
It looks like the fairy tale world is about to be turned on it's head. So unlike the Monster High series where you are encouraged to be unique and be yourself the Ever After High world seems to hinge on following the path chosen for you.
Looks like they could use Cupid's Monster High ideology at Ever After High. Perhaps her mission is to show everyone it is okay to write your own story. Perhaps it's a look at the prejudices that kept different types of Monster feuding in the Monster High world. For example, the fresh water monsters and saltwater monsters or the vampires and the werewolves (though I think twilight probably had an effect on vampire/ werewolf fight).
Red Riding Hood is the Big Bad Wolf...Shocker
Once Upon a Time has turned their Red Riding Hood into a part human part wolf, Monster High had Clawdeen Wolf, daughter of the Werewolf, dressed up as Dead Riding Hood and now Cerise Hood, Red Riding Hood's daughter is hiding a big bad secret? Unless their is a twist this story has been over used. I'm hoping Ever After High will surprise us.
