So as stated above I am looking for the Clawdeen and Howleen 2 pack.  I've been trying for months ever since I heard it had came out.  I call every week and nothing.  This is seriously driving me insane. Am I the only one having this problem.

Yes. For some reason Target only stocked them for a little bit and then poof, they were gone. No Targets from my knowledge have ever restocked. Or restocked ANYTHING MH related. Which is sad as the Howleen pack is an exclusive to Target. \: It got to the point where I bought a pack off of someone on this site.

I'm glad I'm not the only one but sad it's that way. I contacted Target and they said a memo was sent to my two local stores that they need to restock and nothing.

I don't know what is happening with Target and MH. They never have anything anymore. I don't even bother checking there now.

I think that the store exclusives should be ended right now. They have all been nothing but a pain, from Cupid, to the Werecat Twins to the Werewolf sisters. You would think that a store exclusive would be well stocked at all stores, but that has been very far from the case. Very frustrating!!! :(

Yes I agree I was blessed to find the Werecat Twins and Cupid but I live 2 minutes from Wal-Mart and am friends with the manager at TRU.  But this Target exclusive sucks royally.  The only dolls I ever got from there were the Gloom Beach 5 pack.  Aside from that nothing.  I was told by a few people who went looking for the Werewolf sisters that when they asked a Target employee they got a response hinting that the employees where buying before they hit the floor and selling them online.  If that's true that's messed up.  But I agree no more store exclusives let it be fair to all. (I live an hour from Targets and TRU lol)

I only saw this set once at my local Target.  I never saw the Werecat Twins, I caved and ordered on ebay.

The Werecats were at ToyRus, when I went they had tons.. but sold out in a matter of  maybe a week..

For some reason I don't think Target is bothering to ask for anymore MH shipments. and the other stores aren't asking for enough for the demand.

The only thing my nearby Target seem to be getting in are the stuffed dolls. Dx  Besides the accessories and whatnot.

Yeah it is a real pain when it comes to the store exclusives. Sure is not a good sign if stores only seem to be to getting one (or two if you're lucky) cases of them, and never restocked them. I was at my TRU last Friday and asked an employee (I'm guessing she was a manager, or knew her stuff about MH ) if they ever got the Werecat Twins in. Her response was this:

"Yeah, we got them in three weeks ago, but a guy came in and bought ALL of them right when the doors opened. He had four to six of them, and that was the only shipment/case we ever got of the twins. :( "

Honestly, I think Mattel shouldn't even bother with store-exclusives anymore if they're going to end up like this. Really, don't make something a store-exclusive if you aren't even going to have enough of them for the stores. D:br/>

It's also the stores fault, not only Mattel's. The stores have to order the cases, if they don't order the case, they can't really get the dolls in. D:

I read all of these posts, and this is crazy! Now who can we trust anymore, as customers of these stores, to tell us the truth? If a person works at a TRU or Target or Walmart and knows when every shipment comes in, and buys them all, would they really give us correct times or dates for the doll's arrivals? The last several dolls I have purchased have been through people on this site and on other sites recommended on here.All online. I miss being able to find the dolls I'm looking for in stores. Literally the last seven dolls I have purchased have been online. I got lucky and snatched the last Werecat Sister's pack to my TRU's name, a few months ago and I'm sad that that was the last time I was able to get them in store. Sure it's great to know you have them when you buy online and know they're on their way-but it doesn't compare to the simple delight of going to the toy store and getting a new toy. :( I miss it.

Why don't they order the dolls? D: [/semi-rhetoric] They know there is demand for them, and I am certain that they are tired of people calling and asking about them. It kinda seems like they'd rather order the accessories than anything else.

Now that I think about it, I don't think any of the Walmarts near me have ordered any fashion packs since Christmas. I've seen the same three Deuce packs there since the holiday season.

OMG!! I have never had so much trouble trying to find/ purchase an item in my entire life. My daughter has been wanting this set for a long time and I've been following Target online,which has never had them instock, and I was checking our local store. Never got lucky there either. Now my daughter's birthday is next month and it is "crunch time". A few weeks ago I found out our local Target stocks it's shelves before it opens every Monday,Wednesday,and Friday so a little over the past couple weeks on each of these days I drop her off at school and go to this store and wait for it to open only to go to the monster high section and find it empty. The only thing they ever get in are the CAM sets and the roadsters. All the other slots have the stickers on them suggesting they've ordered more including the Howleen set. I usually enjoy the search for the htf dolls but this particular set has gotten to be exhausting. It's different when you know a store is getting an item in and your timing is off but to know week after week or month after month it's simply not there at all is frustrating. It's been this way in all stores in my town though, Target, Walmart, and Kmart. I start on one end of town and hit each store til I make my way home the past few weeks and until the last couple days no one had any dolls for weeks,except Target who still didn't get any in. My friend called me from one of the walmarts tonight though and yay, she scored me a Rochelle for my daughter's birthday so that takes some stress off. I don't think when these stores get a shipment of these dolls in and someone snatches everyone of them up like in the one story at TRU should be allowed. At most there should be a two doll limit. I don't agree with the store exclusives either. It's not fair to those who don't live near those stores and don't have the opportunity to shop for them. We don't live near a TRU but my husband is a boilermaker and on his last job out of town he worked near one and got lucky and found the werecat sisters and a backpack.
