A few days ago, I made a mistake. I accidentally left my computer on the table while my daughter was in the house. When I noticed she was looking at the screen, I jumped and tried to hide the screen. “It would be super embarrassing if she sees what I am doing on my computer,” I thought. Too late. My daughter looked at the blonde figure on the computer screen, with these big blue eyes, and said some words I will never forget. “Wow, she’s beautiful!”. It took me a few seconds to respond. “Who? Annabelle? Beautiful?” I replied, closing the browser as fast as I could as if my daughter had caught me watching a hamster’s porn or something weird like that. There are some things children shouldn’t watch at such young ages.
“Why if Annabelle would be beautiful, just like those Barbie girls?” I thought. After all, it would be great to expose the children to our beloved horror icons, connecting the horror world and their universe. The new Monster High Skullector Annabelle, from the creators of Barbie, may be the perfect solution.
Annabelle And Matel: A Match Made In Hell?
Children, especially girls, love playing with dolls. To understand it, you can look at our “home office,” with around seven boxes full of dolls. Matel pretty much changed the rules with its Barbie doll: We can learn it by the fantastic success of the dolls for decades, making it one of the most popular toys ever, but also by the storm that the new “Barbie” movie made (the highest grossing movie of 2023).
Mattel is a leading global toy company that produces many famous brands, such as Barbie, Hot Wheels, Fisher-Price, and Monster High. Mattel aims to inspire children to explore their imagination and creativity through quality products that are fun and engaging. Mattel also caters to adult collectors who appreciate the artistry and craftsmanship of dolls and action figures. The most remarkable thing about Matel is that the company understood that you can expose children to horror delicately with its Monster High dolls collection, especially the Skullectore collection. So it’s no wonder Annabelle is one of the toys you can buy today.
Annabelle, as you should know as a horror fan, is a paranormal doll you could see in several horror movies, such as “The Conjuring”, “Annabelle”, “Annabelle Comes Home”, and “Annabelle: Creation.” The doll is based on a real-life case of a haunted Raggedy Ann doll investigated by the famous paranormal experts Ed and Lorraine Warren in the 1970s. The doll is said to be possessed by an evil spirit that can cause harm and terror to anyone who comes in contact with it. So in that terms, it seems almost natural to have someday a Monster High Skullector Annabelle.

The doll has 11 points of articulation for haunting poses and displays. The overall look is realistic and detailed.
Monster High Skullector Annabelle comes with a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. It has no electronic or interactive functions.

Overall, the designs fit Annabelle’s description from the movies. “When you look at the package from the front, Annabelle is in her chair. But when you view the package from the outer sides, it looks like the chair is empty”, written on Matel’s website. “The back panel features the doll sitting in the bedroom with the cast shadow of her spirit – plus the shelves and furniture are infused with some Monster High Easter eggs to discover.” The packaging references the films, such as cow webs that “bid you welcome” and shadows of the character’s spirit.
