Top Monster High Dolls For Christmas A Guide For 2012

Updated on December 27, 2013

Monster High Dolls For Christmas 2012

Monster High Dolls are going to be on quite a few girl's wish lists for Christmas this year. These monster dolls look more suited to Halloween than Christmas but they aren't wearing Halloween costumes. You see, each monster doll is dressed in clothing that tells people who she or he is and where they come from.

These girls and guys know they are monsters and they are proud of it. When any toy theme is as popular as this one there are many different markets for them and while it's true there are Monster High costumes and Monster High makeup kits out for the dress up costume season in October, the real demand for the Mattel Monster High toys is going to be in December.

If your daughter likes the Monster High toys you might think about doing your holiday shopping early. Chances are the most popular dolls in this theme are going to be sold out, and it won't be the first time that has happened. When you get your child's wish list for Christmas 2012 and you see the very cute and unique Monster High dolls and accessories on it, remember to get your shopping done early. Of course, these dolls make great gifts anytime of the year and they do look like they were made for Halloween, but that's just their own unique style. These dolls know where they come from and stay true to their roots. They aren't giving up the unique style that comes with who they are ... or is it what they are.

Monster High Venus McFlytrap Doll

Venus has an ability called "Pollen Persuasion". Through the release of some kind of pollen she has Venus can control a person. She is in charge of what they do and what they think. She chooses when she uses this special ability depending on how important the cause is to her.

Venus is 15 years old and her dad is a plant monster. Since her last name is Mcflytrap we can picture which plant monster chlorophyll runs through her veins. Her skin, like a plant, is green and she has vines that wrap themselves around her arms, her neck and her ankles. Her hair is a lovely mix of pink and green. Her hair style reminds me of Cyndy Lauper, it's shaved on one side and hangs long on the other. Check out her shoes, they each have a mouth on them ... a mouth full of pretty sharp looking teeth. They are a bit scary in a super cute kind of way. Find out more about Venus on my Venus McFlytrap Doll Lens.

Venus is loud, and she is very concerned with the environment. She has a rather unique pet, it's a venus flytrap and his name is Chewlian. He can be pretty snappy, but Venus loves him anyway. This young Monster Doll wants everyone to know how important taking care of our world is. It's not a surprise that her favorite color is green, is it? She loves fresh water and lots of sunshine, in fact, she thrives on it. Her best friends at school are Lagoona Blue and Gillington "Gil" Webb.

Monster High Robecca Steam Doll

Robecca Steam is a new student at Monster High. She is a robot and thinks of the mad scientist who made her as her father. She is 116 years old and her style is Steam Punk. A little glitch in her programming makes her late all the time, unusual behavior from a robot. Robecca is copper colored and she has some nuts and bolts showing. Her hair is black with some blue streaks, and that gives her a punk look. The Steam Punk style is so popular right now, she looks very fashionable. She also has a very cool pair of boots with rockets in them and she likes to show off a bit using them. Rebecca's birthday is July 29.

This robot student likes metal shop, hates the rain and doesn't need food like your or I do. She likes a cup of ginger tea every so often and her best friends are Frankie Stein and Rochelle Goyle. Robecca, like all the Monster High girls, has a pet. It's a little robotic penguin named Captain Penny. He is cute as can be and copper colored just like a penny.

Monster High Rochelle Goyle Doll

Rochelle Goyle is a gargoyle from Scaris, France and her parents are gargoyles. Until very recently, Rochelle lived on a rooftop but she wanted to see more of the world and that's why she enrolled in Monster High. She can be rather aggressive and is a fiercely loyal friend, in fact, sometimes it's a bit too much. You could say she has a "chip on her shoulder", in fact, she has said that! This student is 415 years old.



Her look is unique. She has skin that's gray and mottled like stone and her eyes are pink. Her hair is two-tone, pink and teal. She has the wings and tiny horns of a gargoyle. She enjoys creating art through sculpture and she has a strong dislike of pigeons. Her best friends at Monster High are Robecca Steam and Ghoulia Yelps. Rochelle also has a big crush on Deuce Gorgon, but Deuce is involved with Cleo de Nile, so that's not going anywhere. Her cute little pet is a gargoyle in the form of a griffin, and her name is Roux.

Monster High Spectra Vondergeist Doll

Spectra Vondergeist is the daughter of ghosts. She is a bit spectral herself since she can travel through walls and can hear gossip from anywhere in the school. This makes her a bit of a gossip and she tends to embellish what she hears. Spectra likes to write what she hears in a journal and is interested in becoming a journalist. She hates it whenever anyone doubts the truth of her stories!



Her outfit is black and violet with pink shoes and some chains. Her hair is long and multiple shades of violet. Spectra doesn't have just one or two best friends, she thinks everyone likes her. Her pet is called Rhuen and like Spectra is a ghost.

Monster High's Ghouls Rule Cleo de Nile Dolls Make Great Christmas And Birthday Gifts
Monster High's Ghouls Rule Cleo de Nile Dolls Make Great Christmas And Birthday Gifts

Monster High Cleo de Nile Doll

Cleo de Nile is the Mummy's daughter and this Egyptian is over 5,840 years old. Cleo can be a bit bossy but she is the captain of the Monster High cheer squad and needs to take control. This Mummy's daughter resembles the ancient Egyptian queen, Cleopatra Cleo de Nile Doll: Cleo is based on the historic Egyptian, Cleopatra, and eerily mimics her short haircut, but with trendy blue streaks in her hair.

Her dress is a combination of blue metallic wraps that give her a mummy-like appearance and a mermaid-style tulle skirt. She sports blue metallic, strappy platform shoes and some of her accessories include a punch bowl and skull serving cup. Her hands are positioned to make her look like she can walk like an Egyptian.

Monster High's Draculaura Doll

Ghouls Rule

Draculaura or Lala, as her friends call her doesn't look a day over 16 ... but her age is really 1600. She is the daughter of Count Dracula and you know how vampires stay young forever. Draculaura's dad might be a famous blood drinker, but she can't even stand to hear the word blood. She is a bit of a ditz but that's part of her girlish charm and she is happy just about all the time. Her hair is black with red streaks in the front and she has a set of very cute fangs in her mouth. Her outfit is darling, it's a batty kind of costume for Halloween. It has beautiful black and pink bat wings, a jagged edge purplish skirt worn with a white corset top and is surrounded by a sparkling purple and black long accent skirt. Her shoes are webbed heels and she carries a little pink skeleton doll. It's such a festive Halloween look. Sometimes you might see Draculaura with an umbrella and that means she wants to take a sunlight stroll!

I like Draculaura's pet most of all the Monster High animals. It's her BFF - and that means her Bat Friend Forever! She named him Count Fabulous and she likes to dress him up in the cutest little costumes.

Abbey Abominable From Monster High

Ice Queen Ghouls Rule

Abbey Abominable is the daughter of the Yeti, you may be more familiar with the term "The Abominable Snowman" or "Big Foot". Abbey is a foreign exchange student at Monster High, she hales from up north somewhere. I'm not sure if it's her dad or her mom who is the Yeti, it could even be both of them. Abbey seems kind of tough, but it's probably because she doesn't really understand the language and something gets lost in the translation. She is a very warm person when you get to know her but can seem a bit icy if you don't know her well. Abbey is dressed in an icy costume and her skin is blue. Her shoes like are clear as ice and they have a cute blue sock top, her outfit is . Her boots are big and furry and fluffy, she has furry wristlets on and her dress looks like it's made out of glittery snowflakes. Abbey's hair is platinum blonde and has some punky streaks in red, purple and blue.

Abbey's best friends at Monster High are Frankie and Lagoona. She has a cute little pet named Shivver. Shivver is a sweet little Wooly Mammoth!

Monster High's Clawdeen Wolf Doll

Clawdeen Wolf is a fashionista! This girl loves to mix and match her outfits. The Wolfman is her father and she has his ears and teeth! She is cute as can be and dresses up all the time. But for this season she really out did herself is a retro-look. Clawdeen is wearing a purple and green jumpsuit, with a fur jacket on her shoulders and fur on her legs down to her gold shoes. She is rocking in this outfit! Her hair is shaved down in the front, her ears are decorated with green hoops and her mask is Wolfy! The gold platform shoes are a real kicker to this funky doll's wardrobe. This outfit looks great with her curly purple hair, and those ears are the cutest. You can see why Clawdeen is one of the most popular dolls from the Monster High collection.

Clawdeen's best friends at school are Draculaura and Frankie Stein, but she also hangs out with Lagoona Blue and Ghoulia Yelps. Clawdeen has a sweet little kitten named Crescent and the kitty and Clawdeen are both furry and cute, but you get to pick who is the furriest.

Monster High's Lagoona Blue Doll

Lagoona Blue is an unusual girl. Her father is the Sea Monster, some call him the Creature From The Black Lagoon, and she is from down under ... no, not the sea, Australia! That's why she has that cute accent when she speaks. Lagoona is a friendly girl and is quite popular at school. Her skin is the prettiest shade of blue and she has scales all over. Her hands are webbed and she has fins on her arms and legs. Her hair is blonde with bluish chlorine streaks from the swimming pool, and it's curly as can be. She's a gorgeous blonde and she is also very concerned about the environment.

Lagoona likes anything that involves being in the water, after all, she is a sea creature. Her favorite subject in high school is Oceanography, her favorite food is sushi and her favorite color is ocean blue.

In and out of school her best friends are Cleo, Ghoulia, Frankie, Clawdeen and Draculaura. Lagoona likes Gil Webber and he likes her, but his parents aren't fond of her because she's from the sea and they are from fresh water. Hope those kids can work that out. Lagoona has a pet piranah named Neptuna and she carries her around in a purse that's actually a fish bowl!

Frankie Stein Monster High Doll

Ghouls Rule

Frankie Stein is the daughter of the Frankenstein monster and she gives monsters a good name! She's smart, she's stylish, she is gorgeous, so she must look like her mother. Frankie's hair is long and dark, and it's also streaked with silver. Her skin is aqua and she wears jewelry that resembles nuts and bolts, it's a new and improved look for Frankie, it's a bit Steampunk and it looks great with the staples in her skin. She is man made after all. Her costume dress is fabulous, fitted and tight to the hips where it flares out like a sparkling sheer gown. What a great look this little Monster has for Halloween. And her upswept hair do is unbelievably gorgeous. Her lightning mask is the perfect accessory to this costume look. These are going to be a very popular doll for Christmas if you can find them. Frankie Stein and Clawdeen Wolf are the most popular dolls of the past year.

Frankie's best friends are Draculaura, Clawdeen Wolf, Lagoona Blue, Abbey Bominable, Cleo de Nile, and Jackson Jekyll. Since she is the youngest of all the Monster Dolls, she was only 15 days old when she started school there, she is a bit child like and naive. She is the most trusting of all the Monster High characters. Her dad made her a pet dog and she calls him Watzit!

      C A Cupid

      C.A. Cupid's name is Chariclo Arganthone Cupid, so now you understand why everyone calls her C.A. She was adopted by the god of love, Eros - do you remember your Greek mythology? That's where you will find stories of this lover boy and you might also know him by his Roman name, Cupid. C.A. is a DJ on the Monster High school radio and she has her own show that deals with relationships. What else would the adopted daughter of the god of love talk about? Miss Cupid has pale white skin that has been known to fade to black, she has wavy hair that's pink as can be and it's braided, twisted and tied up and circled so it looks like she has a halo of her very own. Here eyes are a gorgeous shade of aqua and she has her very own wings. Check out C.A.'s lips, she wears her lipstick in the shape of a heart.

      C.A.'s style has been called "frighteningly frilly", and she is in love with love. She has arrows, as any Cupid should, but she's the worst shot, so that doesn't work out so well. She is frilly as can be with a bit of Monster High style in her style.

His sisters are Clawdeen and Howleen Wolf and he is going out with Draculaura. Clawd is on several sports teams at Monster High including casketball, track and football, but of the three football is his favorite. He's tall and in great physical condition which makes sports pretty easy for him. He wants to continue his education after High School and end up in the field of sports medicine.

      Here's Jackson Jekyll From Monster High. This image is from Amazon and there's a link by the picture so you can find out more about Jackson.

      Jackson Jekyll is the alter-ego for Holt Hyde, now that has a familiar ring to it, doesn't it? Jackson is 16 years old and his parents are Mrs. and Dr. Jekyll. The thing about Jackson is, he is the only student who is human in Monster High. It kind of bothers him and he even tried to remedy that problem by asking Draculaura to bite him. Fortunately Draculaura has an aversion to blood, so that did not happen!

      When music has a certain beat he is transformed from Jackson Jekyll to Holt Hyde. Where Jackson is sort of quiet and unassuming, Holt is Hot. He's so hot, he's on fire...literally. His skin is blue and he is a DJ who is all about the music and he is thrilled when he gets everyone dancing out on the floor. He is hot tempered and he likes hot wings, hot, hot, hot. These boys are in for a real roller coaster ride with their dual identity.

      Purple Skin And Red Hair Make A Great Look For A Monster High Doll Like Operetta!

      Operetta is the daughter of The Phantom of the Opera and like her father she has the music in her! This little southern lady is into country music and is said "to have a great set of pipes" by none other than the very musical DJ Hyde. She loves to dress up in flashy outfits and puts makeup on until she sparkles. She is not afraid to be who she is and she is bold and independent. Operetta's birthday is June 12th and she is a 16 year old who's also a bit of a perfectionist. Add that with her diva attitude and you've got a "don't step on my spider web design good looking spectator style shoes" kind of rockabilly star in the making.

      Operetta has a pet spider named Memphis "Daddy O" Longlegs who is purple and sports a pompadour hair do just like Elvis used to wear.

      Monster High's Holt Hyde Doll

      Holt High is A Rocking DJ And He's Also The Alter Ego Of Jackson Jekyll.  You remember the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, well, here's Monster High's version.  The image is from Amazon and you can buy the Holt Hyde doll on this page.

      Holt Hyde is the alter ego of Jackson Jekyll. A combination of music seems to set off the change when mild mannered Jackson turns into hot headed, Holt Hyde. Holt is hot tempered, loves hot food and likes to set the dance floor on fire with his music choices. He's a DJ and loves to watch everyone dancing to his beat. He's blue skinned with red hair that's on fire, just like Holt. He's cool as can be for such a hottie, He's got a real talent at the turn table, but his life is only half his. Both Holt and Jackson have a tattoo on the back of their necks, it's the Ying Yang symbol. Holt and Jackson have the same pet, it's a chameleon. The strange thing is that when Crossfire is with Holt he's orange, when he's with Jackson he's green.

      This pretty little monster is a werecat named Toralei Stripes. Her birthday is August 20th and she's 15 years old, but in cat years she is only on her first life, so she's a kitten. But she can stir up a lot of trouble for a kitten! She is mean as a cat can be and yet there's a soft side to her too. Toralei has skin that's a light shade of orange and it gets darker around her eyes. Since she is a tiger stripe cat there are stripes on her right arm, her left leg and she also has two stripes on each cheek. Her hair also has some tiger striping in it, and she has two cat ears. Her eyes are a beautiful shade of green and they are very cat-like.

      Her pants are a bit shredded, it looks as though she might have gotten into a cat fight unless she just sliced them up with her claws. Her top is striped and her shoes are open toed heels with ties. Very cute, love the shoes. Another fashion statement she makes is wearing fingerless gloves. She has a pet, it's a baby sabre-tooth tiger named Sweet Fangs. Now there's a kitty that's sweet as can be, unlike Toralei.
