News and Reviews of Monster High Dolls, Plush Toys, and More!

I realize this is a common topic and many people have stated their concerns at not finding Cupid recently or ever. I have not seen her near me nor has she ever been listed as in stock near me. Questions have previously been asked if Mattel is discontinuing Cupid since she has pretty much vanished. Most people myself included thought this was not so and that she was just rare for a while. I am beginning to doubt that however seeing as both Walmarts near me have removed her sales tag from the isle and you can no longer search for her on walmart's website. Does anyone have any info on whether or not this is the last we see of Cupid in stores? I have avoided buying from ebay and amazon due to the prices and you have to be careful with people on ebay anyway thinking surely she'll pop back up in stores soon but now I'm not so sure. If she isn't going back into circulation I'd like to find out before too many people start jacking her up to an insane price online.  Thoughts... opinions....?

This seems logical, but I don't ever recall hearing it before today.  Do you have a source for this information?

Cupid was only going to be out for a month. from valentines until march 14th. so any stock of her is old stock and she is no longer in production.

Well if she's already out of production that is such bs. Everytime I go to any walmart, they have no dolls, period.  They have the MH section ready to stock new dolls with shelf tags & labels, but never any dolls. I have to wonder if Cupid was ever even in my vicinity at any of the stores. I'm so frustrated that no stores have anything anymore. I really want Cupid too!
I don't know if she's out of stock or discontinued, but as far as only being out for 1 month, I doubt that since I've seen her release date as December 23, and had personally found her on the 27th of December. Unfortunately she has not returned to my area since the start of the year, to include valentines day. 

I've notice that at the Walmart website things "disappear" and "reappear".  I would keep checking there.  I thought I heard a rumor that she would be back in May.  The Mattel site doesn't show her as discontinued.  Here's the link:  http://service.mattel.com/us/product_detail.asp?id=X3799&Ntt=X3... 

There's quite a few of her in my asdas and loads around the UK. And good thing I got her for £10 cheaper, but then again, we all do in the UK.

if she isn't coming back, there goes all my hopes and dreams. :(

I hope it's not true, but if it is then that's kinda messed on Mattel's part. A bunch of people still haven't found her, and she was even released two months early.

You can still find her walmart link if you search through google. Here's the direct link: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Monster-High-Sweet-1600-Cupid-Doll/19525103

I don't know why we sometimes have problems finding doll directly through the stores websites search engine, but it's happened before. So there is hope that she'll be back soon, along with the rest of the dolls in the line. XD

I asked someone at Walmart when they would restock her, they told me in a few days, and when I went back to check all of their other MH dolls had been replenished but there was no Cupid at all. It sucks but I think she's gone for now, not counting stores that have old stock.

this seems to be what happens with a Walmart exclusive... they get it for a very limited time, and then nothing!

TRU is still restocking the Ghoul Spririt sets-- so is Target with their Gloom Beach giftset..... I saw the DotD Walmart giftset ONCE last year, and I don't think they ever restocked it!

 

Don't put the blame on Mattel if more Cupids don't show up-- I'd blame Walmart!  As the retailer asking Mattel for an exclusive doll (and a retailer with a lot of power, by the way) I'm sure they tell Mattel they want 'x" number of them, and that's that....

I have to disagree (at least as far as Walmart is concerned) about ordering from the website. I've ordered from Walmart before and got my dolls in great condition and with no flaws. I ordered the Dawn of the Dance 3 pack and had a great shopping experience. The only thing I don't like about Walmart.com is that they (used to at least) charge you extra shipping on each item. If you're just ordering one item it's okay.

I'd have to disagree with putting blame on walmart. Having power and demanding/ordering x amount doesn't work IF the manufacturers don't make it. As with all the rest of the dolls, there is quite a large lack of dolls most places. Getting to a single store exclusive over dolls that can be sold over many stores may be seen as a real money loss. Making lots of a few dolls sold many places makes more than one doll for one store. Seeing as I believe she wasn't around as a holiday doll, I feel they will come back to her later in the year, not just drop her all together.
