Best gift for kids who love Draculaura from Monster High

Since their debut from Mattel in 2010, the scary cool students of Monster High have been gracing our screens with their gothic fashion sense and thrilling adventures. From the bustling howlways to the spooky catacombs, Ghoulfriends and Mansters alike have enthralled fans even more with the introduction of an exclusive doll line inspired by the most popular characters from the series, like teen vampire Draculaura.

With her retro hairstyles, vibrant costumes and fashion accessories, Draculaura has become a staple of the series thanks to her kind heart and sense of humor and has further inspired other themed merchandise like games, dolls, play sets, books and more. 

Things to consider before buying a Draculaura gift

Play sets

Ghouls at home can embrace their own inner monster with their beast friends from the series with play sets modeled after different scenes from the show and spinoffs. Usually highly detailed, each one includes one to two mini monster figures based on one of the main characters, interchangeable outfits, set decorations and themed accessories. If you collect other available Monster High dolls and play sets, you can build out bigger sets and add more doll accessories.

Dolls

Fans won’t be able to contain their excitement once they get their claws on the brand’s wide selection of Monster High dolls, similar to Mattel’s Barbie collection. You can choose from themes such as a day at the beach, sweet 16, ski trip, prom night and many more. Some sets have other accessories sold separately that expand the original set.

Other figures made in partnership with Mattel from brands like Funko are usually dressed in their signature outfit from the original series, albeit with a few creative liberties taken with the character design. The majority of dolls are not able to stand on their own and require a doll stand if you plan on putting them on display; however, most can be posed in various positions.  

Costumes

Whether your kid enjoys dressing up for Halloween or cosplaying, the various Monster High costumes are sure to bring out their inner monster. Most costumes are made from a combination of polyester and spandex and feature sizes from small to large in both children and adult sizes. Due to the quality of the material used, hand washing each costume in cold water and air drying is best. Outside of clothing pieces, you can also explore the brand’s character-based wig and accessory collections.

Activity books

Coloring books are great to give fans who love coloring and can’t contain their excitement for arts and crafts. Many editions contain over 30 illustrations of high-quality pictures that feature several characters from the series. Pages are printed on separate, bleed-proof 8.5 by 11-inch sheets, with some book versions containing illustrations at a variety of difficulty levels ranging from easy to advanced.

Games

Fans can choose from either app-based games or video games inspired by the series. Some allow players to play as the newest ghoul at Monster High as they interact with Twyla and Frankie, while others let players dress up in fashionable outfits inspired by fan favorites from the show. Similar to other mystery board games, players can control a real-life figure as they move through a digital clue board that can be solved by the revelation of clues, hidden objects and puzzles.

Accessories

Character-themed cosmetic beauty sets can contain a combination of stick-on body jewels, press-on nails, nail polishes, mascara, fake eyelashes, lip gloss and eyeshadow palettes, body shimmer and other accessories. They’re great to give beauty enthusiasts who are also lovers of the show. If your gift recipient isn’t into makeup, a good alternative would be a ghoulish vinyl carrying case that can hold their favorite Monster High dolls or sock collection and pajama set that features the most popular Ghoulfriends from the series.

Collections

There are boxed book sets and DVD collections available that feature Draculaura, Frankie, Clawdeen, Cleo, Ghoulia and Lagoona in all kinds of misadventures, including participating in the Roller Maze championship and other extra-scare-icular activities, going on dates with crush-worthy guys and attending creepy cool school dances. Some book collections follow a singular storyline from each one rather than featuring stories in an episodic format.
