Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Monster High: 13 Wishes traffics in high school problems with a gothy, cartoonish twist. Here, teenagers are fanged and furred, and no stone is left unturned for a morbid reference to ghouls and goblins. But the girls are dressed in over-the-top skimpy attire, high heels, and plastered-on makeup, which could interfere with all the positive messages about friendship, tolerance, and being selfless. Any violence or peril is cartoonish and slapstick with no real injuries. Additionally, the franchise is interconnected with the original line of Mattel dolls and accessories.
Any violence or peril is cartoonish and slapstick with no real injuries. A guy is tossed across a hallway by the slime shooting out of a water fountain but is unhurt. A teacher's head is blown off by an electrical explosion, but she keeps talking as she lands in a student's hands.
Lots of abbreviated slang, such as "whatevs," "totes," and other terms of the moment.
Monster High: 13 Wishes espouses positive messages about friendship, curbing jealousy, being grateful for what you have, and being careful what you wish for. It aims to show girls that the desire to be popular or get everything you want can have negative consequences and that there are benefits to being yourself and earning popularity or friendships through work and being a good friend.
The show is based on a Mattel line of dolls, toys, books, games, and accessories, no doubt in high demand after seeing the movie.
