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.

Many of her birthday presents were Monster High dolls too and Addy was lucky enough to get the new Monster High Freaky Fusion DVD and one of the dolls from it Bonita Femur who is fabulously dressed just like all the other dolls.  In this latest tale from the ghouls of Monster High whilst attempting to help Frankie Stein learn more about her freaky cool ‘scaritage’, the fashionably fierce ghoulfriends travel back in time to the first day ever of Monster High!

The Ghostbusters has to be one of the most iconic films of my childhood; I remember watching it and loving every moment and the catchy theme song still gets stuck in your head.  Then there’s the movie with the pink blob bathtub – anyone who grew up in the 80s as a teenager undoubtedly watched the films.  So I couldn’t resist partnering with the PR team at Home Entertainment for this Ghostbusters Anniversary Giveaway and the chance to give you all a trip down memory lane.

Sony Pictures Entertainment will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its blockbuster franchise GHOSTBUSTERS with a series of special events and home entertainment releases. As a highlight of the celebration, the original 1984 film has been restored and remastered in 4K and will be returning to cinemas for one day only across the UK on October 28th.
