Frankie Stein's Recharge Chamber

So, I can't even tell you how I excited I am to show this to you guys! I don't have a photo post for it, because honestly, I don't think it's possible to capture how cool it is if you don't see it in motion! 

Even though it's practically brand new, Frankie's Recharge Chamber has already gone on sale, and I was able to grab it for nearly 30% off! Well, technically my husband got it for me, but you know, details, right? I think he was nearly as excited to see this thing in action as I was, to be honest, and neither of us were disappointed!

All in all, I think this is one of the coolest toys Monster High has ever put out, and the Frankie that comes with it is especially gorgeous! Let me know if you want to see some more detailed photos of her and I can definitely do that, but in the mean time, check out my video to see her Recharge Chamber in action!

I put a spell on you: Monster High's Casta Fierce!

It might be a little bit early to say Happy Halloween, but in my world, it's never too early for Halloween and it looks like Monster High agrees! In the past, they've done special releases for Friday the 13th like Catty Noir, which is awesome, and this year for the first time, they've put out a special doll just for Halloween, and it's about time, don't you think?

This special doll is Casta Fierce, another pop star in the MH universe, and let me tell you, she definitely lives up to her name! I found her at Target this week, pretty quickly after she started hitting shelves in Canada and I just had to have her. Halloween is my favourite holiday, and Casta has two of my favourite colours (orange and purple) all over her look, so she was a definite must have! Casta is the daughter of Circe, a Greek goddess of magic, and I really like this backstory. It's definitely more creative than her just being a witch, and I love how they brought some of the mythology into Casta's story. Circe was known for turning her enemies into animals, and in the Monster High webisode about Casta, we see that Casta has mostly stopped performing, because of her tendency to accidentally turn her audience into animals! 

Enough talking, right? Let's look at this gorgeous doll!
