I used to be a massive fan of Monster High dolls but I think I've been getting a bit bored of those dolls lately. It's really sad, because I like the characters (Ghoulia's my favourite) and many of the first dolls from 2010-2012. I've not been interested enough in any of the newer dolls to want to get any of them and I actually think Mattel are starting to run out of ideas. It's not quite Barbie-level blandness - I just think they're running out of concepts to make the range consistently compelling. Ever After High seems to be where all their ideas are going now while MH just seems a bit repetitive at the moment.

The Monster High dolls have become very repetitive. We've pretty much stopped collecting them, except for a few of the very unique dolls. And we've even sold a bunch recently too. I'm mostly collecting or are interested in completely different dolls now. Are there any others types of dolls that catch your eye?

I think you're right about Mattel running out of ideas. Nearly all of MH's latest lines have seemed pretty dull, and the face-paint jobs are going downhill. A lot of people are selling off their collections on eBay, but I think it's the people who had the 'gotta catch 'em all' mentality. Kalli and I got our favorites, so I've only a few to sell (duplicates, extras from a couple lots where I was after one out of three dolls, etc).

Lately I've been focusing on Maudlynne. She's really captured my interest, even if her personality description is a bit crummy. They could've done more there, I think. (TV clairvoyant? What?) I'm planning on making clothes for her. Sewing for 1/4th scale should be much easier than sewing teeny tiny stuff for 1/6th.
