What would it be like to go to school with a bunch of monsters? Ok some of you are saying I did…but I’m speaking of the Monster High variety. Monster High is a fun twist on imaginary dolls. My daughter finds the Monster High dolls unique and fun and of all the dolls out there this is definitely one of her favorite lines. From Frankie Stein to Clawdeen Wolf she loves them all. However wouldn’t it be fun to make your own version of a Monster High character? That is just what we did when we received the Monster Maker to review.
Live like a mad scientist and create your own unique Monster High monster designs with the Monster High Monster Maker. Choose a design from one of those included or create an entirely new Monster look, then transmit this to the maker via your iOS or Android tablet (not included) and watch as the machine does the work. Finish off your creations with the included wigs, clothes and accessories and get ready to introduce your own new fashion freaks to this year’s class at Monster High!
Monster High Monster Maker
Honey couldn’t wait to check it out to see how it works. The Monster Maker works with your iOS or Android tablet. I just love toys that incorporate modern technology that work with your tablet or electronic devices. The first step in creating the Monster magic is to download the app and create your monster.
The app is very simple to use as it walks you through each step of designing your monster from head to toe. Both my daughter and I designed our own dolls and enjoyed some mother daughter time. You can design each body part of your mystical creature: head, body, thighs, calves, shoulder/arm, and forearms. You can give your monster symmetry or totally go crazy with tattoos and designs galore.
Once your design is created you can print it using the Monster Maker. Using a Bluetooth connectivity the app will speak to the machine and let you know what to do at each stage. After using the guide to connect your body part to the carriage and inserting it into the machine the app will tell you when to change the marker and will allow you to redo a color if the marker was running out or it was just not dark enough.
The Monster Maker comes with a set of markers and attachments used to secure each body part.

Note: Do Not and I repeat DO NOT open the door while printing. It says so right their on the app screen. However if you choose to ignore the message and open the door the machine will cancel printing and you will have to start over. Don’t ask how I know that :P. If you decide to print on all body parts it will take a little time to get through the entire process. However when you are done you will have a very fun and unique Monster creation.
