Preview: First Ever Monster High DVD - Ghouls Rule

The first time I saw Monster High dolls on the shelves, I was wondering why anyone would buy them. The dolls weren't that scary, in fact they were quite fashionable, but the idea of a monster doll was. After I've learned what Monster High was about, I found the idea of featuring children from legendary monsters in a show very interesting and even fun. And after watching their first ever DVD - Monster High: Ghouls Rule, they don't seem to be as wrong as I originally thought.

Halloween in Monster High is a terrible day for the ghouls as it is the day when 'Normies' (Normal people) make ghouls' life miserable, and they have been doing so for years. However, the girls have discovered that Halloween used to be a day for both monsters and people to celebrate together, and Frankie Stein and her friends Draculaura, Clawdeen Wolf and Abbey Bominable (love the characters' names!), decided to go on a quest to bring the original tradition back.

After some research, framing, betrayal, making up and planning, the ghouls and normies worked together to bring back the traditional Halloween, and celebrated it in style!

The show targets older children, but Abby loved watching it. I love the film's motto: "Be Yourself. Be Unique. Be a Monster." Just because you are different, doesn't mean you don't belong, and we should celebrate people's differences.

After watching the DVD, and knowing their motto, I found myself liking the show very much. I wouldn't be surprised if I even allow Abby to own a Monster High doll, but it has to stay away from my bedroom, especially at night! *cough*

The DVD includes 3 never seen before animated shorts, while the main show is CGI Animated. The Blu-Ray (rrp £17.99) and DVD (rrp £10.99) of Monster High: Ghouls Rule will be available from Monday 8th October 2012, and is available now for pre-orders (£8.00 on Amazon UK). The main show will also be available for digital download and via video-on-demand on the same date.
