When we last looked into the Girlie Stuffs, we uncovered some pre-order listings for Barbie and the mega popular Monster High doll line! Now, I will begin this bit of coverage with a rant. WHAT'S A BROTHER GOTTA DO TO GET A FREAKIN JUSTICE LEAGUE HALL OF JUSTICE PLAY SET? HMMM??!! And no..the Young Justice Build-a-front-of-a-building diorama doesn't count. HELL Batman is mega popular but when is the last time we got a Bat Cave?? Monster High is barely out of diapers and they've got a car, a coffin bed set, a steel slab bed set, a bubbling sleep chamber and now...A HIGH SCHOOL PLAY SET!!! Seriously. The world..she ain't fair.
And now back to Girlie news. ALL NEW Monster High stuff on the way...
