Win A Monster High Freaky Fusion Doll

If there is one craze that seems firmly rooted in our household it is Monster High. Addy loves it and has done for several months now and the main theme of her birthday this year was a Monster High inspired party complete with an amazing Monster High birthday cake from Lichfield cake maker Cakeydora, glitter tattoo artists and face painters and some great Monster High party games.
