Some of the limbs, such as the arms and hands, are made to detach in order to dress and undress the dolls. I just had to put the hands back on my niece's Draculaura, which she's had for almost a year. She has repeatedly removed the limbs of her dolls, and none of the pieces have broken as of yet. I don't think the legs are supposed to come off, though, so that doll you had may have been defective.


The ball at the end of the arms broke off and stayed in the doll. She is always taking their clothes off! Found Abby last night and told her do not undress this one!!!LOL

I wasn't looking for this doll in the beginning just trying to help others find her, and even had one in my hand a month ago... now dd wants her and I can't find her either.

The easiest way to find her is on amazon. Sign up for email and text alerts on nowinstock.net. I had it ordered the same day I signed up with no tax and free shipping. I got Abbey and Spectra both. I get the text alerts in teh middle of the night, but she usually is out of stock within a few minutes or hours, so buy as soon as you get the alert. You can also choose target as a store if you choose. I signed up with info a poster sent me on here at about noon. The text alert came at 4 and I had her 2 days later.

Has anyone found the release date for the Torelei Stripes doll? I have heard that it has already been released in Australia.

I don't think she's a Mattel doll. I googled her and I kept finding her and it said by Designdolls, custom made. They had a few others also. Evie Hallows, Hannah, Lecter. among others. THere is no mention of her on the Mattel site or any mention of mattel on any of the posts about her.

She was featured in the Mattel booth at the 2011 San Diego Comic Con. They did not say for sure on the release date, though..... I had originally found a release date of late December, but I can no longer find that info to verify.

EDIT: I just found where I got my original info and the supposed release date if it has not changed is December 18th. Please remember that this info comes from a Monster High Forum and is not official. I will call Mattel myself on Monday and post an update in case anyone else is looking for this doll too. Hopefully it will be earlier than that. If it comes out that late in December it's gonna make it nearly impossible to find.

EDIT: I called Mattel, and was told that it looks like Torelei will not be released until 2012 along with Nefra De Nile. At least we won't be rushing to try to find her before Christmas.

Why would they have such a high markup. They were only 17 on amazon. I would think retail stores would have to go with the retail prices.

I'm looking for abbey too! I call Target and TRU daily! Of course my daughter is crazy about the one doll I can't find. I did find spectra at target last week though! I'll have to call our justice store to check for abbey there. I set my alerts too, but nothing so far.

I found my Abbey at Bon-Ton, If you have one around. Maybe Boscovs? I just took a chance with Bon-Ton and of course my daughter was with me so she got it then! I have Spectra hidden away

I still haven't found Abbey. I received one alert from nowinstock.net since I signed up for it a couple of weeks ago... it was an alert from Target. By the time I got to it, an hour and a half later, it was sold out. The site said it was "in stock" at my local store, as well, but it was not. I have not seen any Monster High shipments come in in at least a week or so, either. The closest Bon-Ton and Boscov's are an hour and a half away

I don't mind saying that I am so frustrated trying to find this doll...There are tons listed on Ebay for absord prices so someone is finding them. I did finally get Spectra over the weekend at Target for just $14.49 on price cut. The Target employee did tell me that they come in a box of assorted..and they never know which doll is in there...So probably would be best to find them online..I am not going to go store to store looking anymore...

I found all mine in store so don't give up, try to ask toy dept. when they get shipments, that seems to help. TY for posting tori, now I know which color box to scan for :D

I can always be used as a "bad example" :P

I ordered Abbey Bomidable online from KMart since the item was showing instock at my local store. Received a phone call this morning to say that there's no way to actually order a specific doll from the store online; they all have the same code. ugh! The search continues!

My zoolert went off earlier today, she was in stock at tru.com. I signed up on nowinstock.net, I didn't have any luck with that site. I finally found mine at toysrus a week and a half ago. Also, she wasn't on the shelf, a dear assocoate checked the box at the top of the shelf for me and one specrta and one abbey was in there, the rest were the older dolls.

Yep! That is what I was told..They all have the same SKU and the come asst in a box...Most sales asssociates are to lazy to go digging through boxes for you..So you are out of luck if they dont have them on the floor.

Saw the wonderful post about Kmart.com. Placed an order as a store within 20 miles had them in stock. Order confirmed as Abbey. This morning email from Kmart said "Congratulations, Draculaura is now ready to be picked up". Called they had the boy and Frankie waiting for me. I said no thanks. Now awaiting a refund. Told same, that they all come shipped together with same code. It is "hit and miss" if that store will ACTUALLY have Abbey.

Found BOTH Abbey Bominable and Spectra Spectra Vondergeist at Justice this morning. They hold stuff, so that's a good place to check.

Well, looks like Toralei Stripe is gonna hit the US before Christmas after all. Other sellers have her on Amazon now. It appears that Amazon has had her in the last couple of days for $19.99 because it is coming up on price search engines. Geez, another one of these dolls to search for. They would bring her out now, just when I gave up on looking because of Mattel customer service telling me they would not be out until February 2012.:mad:
