Rare and Collectible Monster High Dolls
Rare, Collectible, and Hard to Find Monster High Dolls
Having a hard time find a certain Monster High doll?
Note: The dolls that I have listed on this site have been declared rare and collectible by me. I have found after visiting many forums most of the first wave of Monster High dolls are extremely hard to buy at listed retail prices. Mattel has been developing new dolls at an incredible rate now because of the popularity of Monster High and will continue to do so. Because of this, the original Monster High Dolls are non existent in most stores. You might get lucky or live in an large area, where they are not as popular and therefore, might still be available. Rest assured if they are, you should pick them up and then re-sell them to someone who collects. Just take a look at some of the Monster High forums, there are many people who would love to get there hands on some of the dolls to add to their collection.
Before buying for above retail, make sure you have checked your local Walmart. Although, if you have landed here at this site, that usually means that you have already tried doing that.

Please feel free to add any information that you might have. If you have any questions regarding Monster High, please ask. Thank you.
Tips for Adding to Your Collection
- Find the model number of the doll and call the store ahead of time to see if you can hold or reserve the doll. Some Walmarts are happy to do that. You can find the model number by asking in a Monster High Forum all over the net.
- Order online early in the day, sometimes the dolls sell out really fast. I once went to Toys R Us website in the morning, only to return in the afternoon to find out the doll I wanted was gone.
- Be patient, the dolls will show up somewhere, hopefully at retail. Don't jump on the first doll you see on Ebay. For sure if you do some research and ask around at the forums you will find that special Monster High doll at the price you can afford.
Scarah Screams Daughter of the Banshee
This doll was released at the Comic Con this year. She was sold out there and is now currently available on eBay and Amazon. Links are below. Scarah Screams is a limited edition doll and is very rare. Just like other limited edition Monster High doll, they only make a few and the lucky collectors are the ones that get them. Good Luck!
The newest doll From Monster High is the third limited edition doll Mattel has released called Scarah Screams. If you're a collector, this is a must have.

So far I have only purchased her outfit as that is the only thing I have found in stores on the shelves. I guess my only way is to order online.
Where Can You Get Monster High Dolls?
You can find Monster High dolls at your local Walmart, Target, Toys R Us stores. These are the best places to find Monster High Dolls. If you would like one of the more rarer kind like featured in the website. The best place is to find them online at Amazon.com, Ebay.com or Kijijii. I have purchased my dolls at all of the places listed. Walmart being the cheapest, but that is only if you find them right away. Otherwise, they sell out quickly.

I actually found this doll last week (April 19th, 2012) at Walmart. I suspect that they found it in their back room somewhere and put her out as the box looked kind of ragged. Still acceptable considering she will be out of the box and on the shelf very soon.
HUGE Collections of Monster High Dolls
Are Monster High Dolls Collectible?
Yes, Monster High dolls are collectable. The article below is a press release done in 2010. This explains why I think these dolls will be collectible for sure.
From the Press Release:
For the first time in company history, Mattel will roll out a new intellectual property, Monster High, across a number of diverse consumer products categories simultaneously at launch. This new franchise targeting tween and teen girls brings together the hip teenage descendants of the world's most famous monsters to brave the trials and tribulations of high school. The property delivers rich content and relatable storytelling via publishing, web, animation and live-action theatrical entertainment and launches consumer products in notable categories including apparel and accessories and toys. Mattel has partnered with best-in-class category experts including Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, best-selling author Lisi Harrison, Universal Pictures, Justice and Party City to bring this property to life.
"We know tween and teen girls need to immerse themselves in stories and worlds as they engage in new properties and trends," said Tim Kilpin, General Manager of Mattel Brands. "With Monster High we are confident that through the development of relatable characters and clever storytelling, this property will resonate with girls of all ages."
Grounded in a fun and humorous storyline, the frighteningly fashionable students at Monster High capture all the awkward moments that teens experience in their high school years, the powerful bonds of friendship and the challenges of fitting in - all delivered through a "monster" chic aesthetic and tone.
Monster High reaches girls via a line up of all-star products and partnerships enabling teens and tweens to discover the brand in their own way and engage with the Monster High characters and storyline through multiple points of entry.
"Understanding the need for multiple touch points to successfully engage today's complex tween, the rich characters and storyline of Monster High made the brand the ideal property with which to launch our new franchise model - a sustainable business strategy that we believe is the future of brand management," said Kilpin.
The robust offerings and impressive first-year partner roster for Monster High include:
Monster High Book Series by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers:
