Do you have a Monster High fan in your life? My girls, as well as nieces just love these dolls, and were so excited to hear that for Halloween and Mons-tober (October), a new doll named Casta Fiece was being released. So, you can only imagine when my girls saw me open a box to reveal this new doll. You would have thought they saw a spider, with the screaming and shrieking they were doing -- but, they were just overly excited to see this Monster High doll up close, and know it was theirs to play with and add to their growing collection.
Last week, I shared how this year we will be trying something different in regards to the girls' Halloween candy they get. Instead of keeping it to devour, only to get hyper and chance cavities, they girls will be trading in their candy for a toy of their choice. I will then donate their candy to our men and women in military stationed overseas to enjoy. Before the girls knew I was having the Monster High Casta Fierce doll sent to review, this was on the top of their Top 3 wish list for their candy trade in. I told them that I would surprise them with one of their three top choices after they handed over their candy. :-) Now, one of my girls has the doll, and the other (Savannah) will be getting one on Halloween night.
Here is more about Casa Fierce --
"The Daughter of Circe has always been a drama queen - and this sparkling flared gown is brimming with drama!
An ombre effect is created on the orange fabric of the bodice with purple-shaded beading; a black belt with buckle and sheer layers make up the fishtail skirt. Wicked cool puffed sleeves, buckles and straps are killer touches, while enchanting accessories (bewitching boots and bangles) complete the outfit.
Always an entertainer, Casta Fierce doll comes with a microphone she can hold in her hand or clip into her broom, which doubles as a mic stand!
Use the brush to get her ready to rock the stage, and read more gory details about her mon-stardom in her diary."
Battery Required: No
Assembly Required: No
Age Grade: 6 & Up

As soon as my girls were able to pry Casta Fierce and her accessories from the package, they spent the rest of the afternoon playing with her, while watching a Monster High DVD. I am amazed at the different dolls that are available for girls nowadays and how they are peaking interest from all different age ranges. They also have a lot more detail to them, and the back stories really make them fun to play with.
Bella couldn't stop brushing Casta Fierce's hair and Savannah was in awe of her stylish outfit. The only negative thing that I found with this doll is that microphone kept falling out of the doll's hand. But, this didn't seem to be a problem for the girls, as they took turns pretending to be apart of the Monster High band and would sing into the microphone. :-)
In addition to wishing for the new Monster High Casta Fierce doll, my girls have already started talking about other Monster High dolls and playsets they want to ask Santa for. And, I am guessing they are not alone, as many other Monster High fans are probably planning to do the same. :-)
Want to give a non-candy treat to that special Monster High fan in your life this Halloween? Why not surprise them with the new Casta Fierce doll? Or better yet, have your child trade their candy in to get this doll. Not only will they get a toy that they can enjoy for longer than a piece of candy lasts, but you can also let them know that you will be donating their candy to troops overseas or to another worthwhile cause or dentist's office accepting Halloween candy this year.
And, if your child is still trying to figure out what to dress up as, why not consider having them dress as one of their favorite Monster High ghouls -- Draculaura, Clawdeen Wolf, Frankie Stein, Cleo De Nile and Lagoona Blue, amongst others. My niece is going to be Lagoona Blue, and can't wait for Halloween to get her so she can show off her ghoulish costume. :-)
