Monster High?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Does anybody's daughters like this? It is ALL my DD can talk about. She loves it! I think it must have been from commercials and stuff in stores because as far as I know she had never watched it. DH recorded a couple episodes of it for her and she really really liked it and wants only monster high stuff for her birthday. I think it's a little old for her (she will be 4 on the 27th). Doesn't anybody's DD who is this young like this? Or how old is your DD that watches it?

I will add that while I think 3 year olds should be watching playhouse Disney type shows she has grown out of that mostly. We don't watch much tv but she does like Umi Zoomi and Sofia the first (her absolute favorite). But otherwise she just likes Disney princess movies.

I wore them in high school. I also wore shorts under the skirt lol. But I did wear them. I want to teach my dd to respect her body and that showing it off, isn't always "sexy". That she can be sexy in many other ways without being nude or have a face covered in make up! Idk I think sometimes we forget to keep our babies young and innocent. :(

 LOL thats what i said. BUT my teenage daughter will also NOT be wearing a push up bra or mini skirt.


Quoting eykelley:

Nope. And it'll be over my dead and decaying body that my dd will ever have those dolls! They look like cheap hookers IMO! Barbie is one thing, but the make up, the 5 inch heels, the insanely short skirts and shirts... Not happening. I don't came I my teenage daughter wears a mini skirt and push up bra... But my 10 year old will not!

I didn't even know there were books. Haha. But I did watch an episode with my dd and it was all about everybody getting along regardless of who you are and what you look like.


Quoting Roo1234:

mY daughter likes the books (but she is 12) and collects the dolls for that reason.  She doesn't really care for the cartoons.  She feels that while they are "fine" they aren't really reflective about the stories from the book series which talks about accepting others and yourself.

I can see where that is true. However, I still dislike the way they dress. Idk. I've never watched the shows. So maybe they have good points, but I don't like the way they dress and I don't like the idea of my dd thinking that dressing like that is ok.


Quoting Anonymous:

Lol ok then! And just because a doll is wearing those clothes doesn't mean my dd will! I think Barbie is worse actually....she's a "regular person". These are monsters and I'm pretty sure my dd won't try to be a vampire or werewolf either....

Understandable. I have just chosen that rather then trying to shelter them from these types of style (which lets face it....is everywhere!) that they can be exposed to it and learn that while there are many many types of styles there is a certain way they will dress that we find is appropriate. They have done very well so far learning that there is a ton of different ways people live and that our family has its own way regardless of what everyone else does.
