Ever After High Dolls From Mattel

by fitzcharming

Mattel hit it out of the park with their Monster High Dolls. Can the new Ever After Doll franchise do the same?

The children of our favorite fairy tale characters are getting ready to start school at Ever After High. Their destinies seem to be scripted to read almost exactly like their parents. In fact they have to sign the Story Book of Legends every year on Legacy Day to document their intentions. Wow what a commitment!

But the modern day student class entering the school isn't set on living their lives exactly in their parents footsteps. Evil vs Good is just such old fashioned fantasy.

I Cant Wait To Collect Ever After High School Dolls

I am a HUGE fan of Monster High Dolls from Mattel and have a collection of my own (many grown ups play with Monster High dolls).  I love that they are

  • highly articulated, or poseable,
  • they have adorable story lines with quirky personality flaws just like some real teenagers,
  • lots of funky fashions that can be mixed and matched,
  • are sold at a reasonable price point and are high quality for a toy doll,
  • and they have big heads. 

I'm a big headed doll fan for some odd reason.  I think my Blythe doll got me started on the trend.  Monster High heads aren't as big in proportion to their bodies but they are still large for the skinny doll frames. 

They are a great alternative to Barbie dolls, which I haven't been interested in for years.  There are also lots of exclusive sets made by Target, Toys r Us, Walmart, and Kohls, to name a few. So far no other toy manufacturer has even come close to rivaling the Mattel franchise, and many have tried.  For example MGA Entertainments "Bratzilla" dolls were supposed to be comparable and their sales don't even come close.  The Playhut Mystixx vampire dolls with two faces is another line that is trying to capitalize on the Gothic style doll popularity.

I didn't get started collecting Monster High until a couple of years after they first hit the market though and now the early dolls are rare and selling for much more than I can afford.  If the Ever After High dolls are comparable to Monster High, they are already a big hit.  And the great news is that I can get in on the first wave of dolls and have one of each.  You can bet I'll be scouring the stores and standing in line to get doubles though so I'll have one to play with and one to keep collectible in case I ever need quick cash.

C A Cupid Provides The Segway From Monster High To Ever After High

C A Cupid has her own school radio show at Monster High and gives out advice to lovelorn students and ghouls. Her real name is Chariclo Arganthone Cupid and she is the daughter of the Greek God Eros. More than anything she likes to help with relationship problems.

Ever After High is A Spin Off From Monster High - How The Story Evolved

The story takes off when C A Cupid - Daughter of Eros the Greek Love God from Monster High revealed in April 2013 that she would like to help other groups of teenagers with love problems.  It turns out Ever After High has some relationship issues that can use some of Cupids loving care.  They involve a different kind of problem though.

The problem is that the students are required to take only studies that prepare them to fulfill the scripted storyline of their parents lives.  The school is tasked with making sure all of the wonderful fairy tales we love will continue for generations to come.  Poor Raven Queen doesn't want to be an evil character when she grows up so she's planning to rebel.  Her roommate Apple White needs Raven to become evil enough to administer the poison that will allow her Prince Charming to kiss her.  Her happily ever after ending could be in jeopardy.  Others could follow Raven's lead and re-write all our favorite legends. 

It's a dilemma that is causing problems for the future of all fairy tales. We will have to wait and see if Cupid can help them.

New Ever After High Websites

The official Ever After High website is live and there are already some character profiles up.  Also 3 new Ever After High related blogs are also slated to showcase the Ever After adventures - The Village Book of End, where they hang out after school; Rewrite Destiny, a library with indoor trees; and Royal or Rebel, which tells of the rivalry between those who know they will have a happy tale and those with those who are doomed to be evil, ugly, or devious.

And of course an Ever After High Facebook page is live.  Below are the first 3 in the series of Webisodes to tell the characters altered Fairy Tale stories.  Looks like Mattel is revving up for a full blown marketing media blitz aimed at doll collectors and little girls worldwide.  I can't wait.

There Are Already A Series Of Loveable And Interesting Ever After Background Characters

The headmaster of Ever After High, the school founded in 1812 to prepare fairy tale protagonists to their destinies is Milton Grimm.  His only objective in life is to channel the students into their proper course in fairytales and fables.  He's not sensitive at all to their individual wishes and desires and could care less which path they will have to follow. 

His brother is Giles Grim.  Giles is the keeper of the Vault of Lost Tales, a sort of librarian under the school   He doesn't agree with his brother's methods and knows there is the possibility to change.  He's researched it and knows there were some fairy tales that don't exist any more.  It seemed they had been altered sometime in the past.  Why can't these students do the same?  I think we will need to watch and find out.

I agree Kimbesa. And what a coincidence - I happen to have an extra large dollhouse.

I think they will be cute, and fun to play with and collect. An extra-large doll house might hold them all!
