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

I found all three at my local toys r us on Saturday. The only problem was they rang up $19.99 and all the economy size dolls are $14.99...so they went back and checked and said there was no price tag. They ended up letting me pay $14.99 for each. After I checked out the employees went and pulled the rest of the shelves since they weren't ringing up right. Diffidently be on the look out of these 3 dolls next time your at toys r us:)

My TRU still doesn't have any and I desperately need Lagoona :(

Well I'm glade they let me buy them for $14.99 because $19.99 for an economy doll is ridiculous.
It would be awesome if these were Walmart's Black Friday exclusive and for $10 you can't beat that. It will also be nice that people can still find these after Black Friday if they didn't want to go and wait in line forever..lol

I was at Walmart yesterday and saw a $9.99 shelf tag for DOTD dolls, so I'm a little confused right now >_/p>

Are they Black Friday or just "out when they're out?" I haven't actually seen the dolls at either store yet

I saw one Cleo and one Frankie at the Toys T Us here in Knoxville TN.

Just got one of each at my local TRU.  Hated paying $20 instead of $10 but didn't want to risk missing out if I can't get to store on Black (Thursday) Friday.  DoTD is kiddo's fave line...

This is what I'm wondering.  Everyone thought they were Black Friday, but they started showing up early, and now in TRU, too.  It can't really be called a Walmart Black Friday Exclusive if one can go to Walmart before Black Friday, or even Toys R Us, and get it before then, can it?

Honey, I don't have a Toys R Us.  And what confuses me, is Walmart only has had the Black Friday releases since they started doing that.  Walmart had the Classroom dolls, the Sweet 1600, I never heard of anyone, not even Toys R Us, having them.  So if it's a Walmart Black Friday thing, why does Toys R Us have them, and why is everyone getting them now, that's what's throwing me off.

When I gave my TRU the item # for these (which is 180748) they said they had like 5000 of these in the system or something like that? I'm sorry I should have paid better attention, but the point I took away from that is that there will be plenty of these to go around at TRU. I'm assuming the large number I was given was how many will be distributed from their distribution center in my region?

At any rate it looks like all of the TRU's are getting them around now for $19.99, but they may intend to lower the price for Black Friday to a price similar to what Wal-Mart will be charging (apparently $9.99). So, my question is whether TRU will release some now and then at some point stop releasing them and save the rest for Black Friday promotions. Or, if enough are coming perhaps they will continue to ship them straight through Black Friday but if you are patient and your TRU has any in stock for Black Friday you can get them cheaper then.

Meanwhile, with Wal-Mart, it seems like every year a few stores make a mistake and shelve their Black Friday dolls early, sometimes to then realize their mistake and pull them and sometimes not. But at any rate it seems that their usual plan is to withhold these until Thanksgiving night, and their flyers will say exactly what time they will be released for sale on that night. I went last year early and the dolls were on the floor, but employees were guarding them and told us we couldn't buy them until that time mentioned in the flyer.

Walmart's first Black Friday Monster High deal were not exclusives, they were rereleases of Wave 1 (iirc?) available elsewhere at the time. They were general release dolls that I was able to find and price match at Target that year. It wasn't until the Classroom Dolls (2012) and Sweet 1600 (2013) did they have "exclusive" rereleased dolls of a "different" quality not made available elsewhere. So, if Toys R Us has DOTD it's not unusual and they can still be "Black Friday" deals at Walmart just not an "Exclusive" like the last two years. Walmart did not move their "exclusive" Sweet 1600s like they did the previous years so they might not have ordered an exclusive for this year and went with larger orders of a certain wave.

What is making me think that these might be a general release (or exclusive to TRU and Walmart) is the fact that shelf tags have been spotted at Walmart for the DOTD rereleases. Black Friday "specials" tend to be displayed apart from their general merchandise, usually have date/time activated SKUs and don't get shelf tags until after the Black Friday event. Specials  arrive from warehouses packaged differently (usually on the display wrapped in plastic). At least that was my experience when I worked at Walmart. All we had to do was place the palettes/displays where they were on the event map and watch them so no one took anything from them. 

Either way we'll know in a few weeks when Black Friday Ads start being leaked. =)

Well, I hope you're right, because it's not really a "Black Friday deal" if anyone can waltz into Walmart or TRU and pick them up now, is it?  Sure, they'd be half, or a third, off on Black Friday, but still no big whoop.  

I'm thinking Sweet 1600 didn't move because, at least here, you can generally find the original Draculaura, Clawdeen, and the occasional Frankie.  There's still a Ghouls Rule Clawdeen rotting on the shelves.  Not the best line to pick.

If the DOTD dolls are a Black Friday item I doubt they'll be $10. My guess is in the $3-$7 range much like the Disney Princess and Barbie dolls they offer at event pricing.

I picked up Lagoona and Frankie today from TRU.  They rang up at $19.99 but I was fairly certain they were listed on the shelf as $14.99 with correct identification (MH DOTD).  I mentioned this at checkout and they adjusted the price for me as well.
