This review is from: Monster High Create-A-Monster Bee Add-On Accessory Parts (Toy)Again... I am not happy with these Add On's for the Create a Monster doll. Though this set was my favorite because of the whole Bumblebee thing going on, but the wig is horrible. Sits sooo high on the head and falls off. Try a Liv Doll wig... they fit great! Again, so glad I only spent $10 at Walmart for this Add On... its not worth any more than that...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough parts available,

This review is from: Monster High Create-A-Monster Bee Add-On Accessory Parts (Toy)I really like these and love the idea of swapping and changing around the parts to make a new monster, however, the big downer on these is the fact that you are always left with bits that can't be used. Plus, any upper arms and thighs from the original starter packs (not to mention the torso) just won't match the skin colour of this set! If the company sold spare upper arms, thighs and torsos that would be a much better idea and much better value for money. I'm waiting till I can get more parts, until then these are just sitting around in their boxes. Disappointing.
Another suggestion would be that you could swap parts with the regular range of Monster High dolls, because the fittings are larger they are incompatible so you can't even use a broken doll to supplement your parts. I really don't think they've thought this through, unless it was their intention to wast plastic and have kids get bored with them very quickly?

4.0 out of 5 stars Loves the clothes but not too crazy about the wig,
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars
This review is from: Monster High Create-A-Monster Bee Add-On Accessory Parts (Toy)My daughter loves the dress that came with this pack. The yellow and black striped dress has taken a turn on all of her dolls at least once. The classic black pumps are now on her Scary Tales Clawdeen doll. I wish Mattel kept all their Monster High shoes this simple and pretty. The Bee wings are on her Create a Monster Witch doll. The doll really does look like a Bee and her yellow and black limbs are nice. Unfortunately Bee's wig is not as nice and my daughter tried several times to make it look pretty to no avail. The wig is now tossed in her toy box where it will probably stay. I buy her Liv wigs for her dolls now. I do wish that these dolls had actual names and back stories to make playing with them more fun. My daughter tends to favor the ones that appear in the cartoons over the others.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dont Buy! Buyer Beware! Terrible Product!!!!,
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars
This review is from: Monster High Create-A-Monster Bee Add-On Accessory Parts (Toy)When the MH dolls first came out I thought. "With the way they pop on and off, why not do them all like this and make them interchangeable?" yeah great idea right? No, not when Mattel is being greedy. I made the mistake of buying almost everyone of these kits. God Help Me! I got completely ripped off. They are cheap, the wigs look like crap, the arms and legs are loose, and the hip joints break with little movement. I cant believe that Mattel has gotten so cheap. I mean first the first set of MH dolls end up breaking like crazy, then this? Come on Mattel don't you have enough money????? Do you really have to rip off us parents this close to Christmas???? This set was NOT worth the money, and I didnt pay hardly anything for it at the store. None of these sets are worth a flip. I might as well toss them ALL in the trash or had just set my dollars on fire in the store. I will be very cautious in buying ANYTHING new from Mattel that is MH. So parents just beware. If you buy any of these kits just know that you are getting half of what you pay for, if that. What is next? A pile of crap with the MH logo on it? Really Mattel, really? This set is even worse than the others and I bought them all unfortunately! The wings wont stay on, none of the torsos look good with any of it. The wig is cheapy, it looks like crap. the dress looks like it is cheap and it isn't even. The velcro is off to the side and you can see it from the front. It just looks terrible. The legs and arms, like all of the others, wont stay on. So just save your money, just wait for the real doll. These sets suck!
4.0 out of 5 stars Cute add on pack,
This review is from: Monster High Create-A-Monster Bee Add-On Accessory Parts (Toy)The pack is a nice addition to the create-a-monster sets. Comes with arms, hands, legs, head, wig, dress, shoes, wings, and sunglasses. The downside is there is no torso so if you're thinking about buying it for someone make sure that person as a pack with a torso.or else they won't be getting far with this. The bee character's limbs are two toned which is a nice touch. She has a really pretty face and her antennae are her sunglasses. One of the better add on packs.
3.0 out of 5 stars We were a little dissappointed.,
This review is from: Monster High Create-A-Monster Bee Add-On Accessory Parts (Toy)It is very difficult to tell by the picture online (shown in a box when we ordered it) that this doll does not come with upper legs, upper arms, or a torso. The wig does not stay on well either. We bought other Monster High kits with parts just like this one (though they were bigger sets) that still came with the torso, upper legs, and upper arms. You cannot play with this kit without the other parts from another kit that contains them. This was a bit suprising since, as I said, the other kits did come with a torso, etc.
4.0 out of 5 stars Bee-utiful!,
This review is from: Monster High Create-A-Monster Bee Add-On Accessory Parts (Toy)Pardon the pun, but she is a beautiful doll. I love the way her lower limbs fade from yellow to black, the stripe dress is perfect for her, as are her cute bug eyed glasses with antenna. Her wings are wonderful and fairly translucent. She has a real cool buggy vibe to her. However, she is a better deal at a local store, or direct from Mattel's website right now for $10.99, plus shipping, which is where I got her. She does have some downsides though...
Her wig, like another reviewer noted, sits high on her head, and is hard to make it look decent on her. I love the colors of it, but that's about it. I will try a Liv wig on her for a better look.
Also, her matching torso will have to be hunted down on Ebay from a reputable seller, if you want a complete matching doll. I found one using buy it now with free shipping for a decent price. Not as low as Mattel's price for the torso pack, but they no longer seem to be selling this on their website, as I have been looking, hoping to get them for a good price, but to no avail. So I buckled, caved in, and got it for a bit more than I would have liked. *sigh* Wish I hadn't missed the window of opportunity to get the torso pack directly from Mattel. But what can you do when you are a little too late to the Monster High party?
Anyways, this doll really is the bees knees! A honey of a monster, she will soon be the queen bee of any MH collection! Buzzing off now! X3

This review is from: Monster High Create-A-Monster Bee Add-On Accessory Parts (Toy)My daughter loves the MH books and dolls...she loves creating the monsters in these kits...this is one of several kits we have. I do wish they seemed a little sturdier though...I am so nervous about one of the joints (tabs of plastic) breaking when she is popping them in or out.

= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars
This review is from: Monster High Create-A-Monster Bee Add-On Accessory Parts (Toy)My girls love the bee girl, but the main reason for this review is to help people know that the Mattel site is selling a 5 pack of torsos to help make complete dolls. Upper limbs too in the right colors for the bee, 3 eye girl and Skelton.
