Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have to admit I was a little skeptical about purchasing this for $80 and having it be flimsy or cheap. After receiving this from Amazon On The Vine program, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. When we, my 11 & 13 yr old daughters and myself, took it out of the box and assembled it we all agreed this Monster High School set is AWESOME!!!! I thought it was fairly easy to assemble, for the first time it took maybe 30 minutes probably less. My daughters assembled the bleachers, the lab cart, and the desks and tables all on their own without help. It unfolds so easily, I was however frustrated at first because it seemed like the stairs wouldn't lock into place and the wall of the creepateria seemed to heavy like it kept leaning. However, if I would have looked at the directions closer, I would have seen looking at the front of the dollhouse(with the 2 doors), on the right side there is a little hand that you lock into the side of the other front piece(with the casketball net). That definitely makes a huge difference and then lets the stairs stay locked into place and stopped the front side with the casketball court from leaning. After initial set up the house can be set up and packed up in minutes.

In my opinion this set is pretty sturdy, it has floors and contrary to what I read in another review the furniture stands up just fine. The walls and outline of the floor are constructed of plastic and the floors are a painted cardboard. There are 6 plastic useable casket shaped lockers, that are built in on the one wall, that actually come with adorable skull paddle locks that you can hook through the locker and the locks even open and close and you can put things in the lockers. The table it comes with is perfect for the Creepateria and easily fits four dolls at it. The top half of the Creepateria looks small but observing my girls playing with the set, they actually had 2 dolls sitting with their feet dangling over the edge and one doll standing behind the DJ booth (which when turned around is a trophy case) and another doll standing up. With all 4 dolls on the small top level it held in place well with no leaning whatsoever. It stayed sturdy.

The casketball net easily attaches and the bleachers easily fit 4 dolls. Two can be placed on the top row and 2 on the bottom row and the bleachers do stay standing with or without the dolls on them. Also, the dolls stay seated on their own without having to hold them.

I don't think I saw it mentioned but if you only unfold the dollhouse partially to only show the classroom side but not fully unfold the creepateria side, the opposite side of the classroom wall has a ghoul's room (restroom) pictured.

The whole set is very roomy and the dolls fit through the doorways with plenty of room to spare. The accessories included are really cool too. It came with:

approx 80 assorted stickers, 2 gargoyles, 2 books, dico ball, 8 flat pumpkin shape lanterns, casketball net & ball, DJ booth(that reverses to a trophy case), 6 skull locks, table, lab cart, 2 desks, 6 skull locks, bleachers, spirit staff & stand, trophy,plaque, 2 diaries, 2 pens, binder, clear canister with removable lid, frog, 2 spiderweb railings, a ladder that folds and creepateria food that consists of : 2 tall drinks, 2 bowls of food, a cauldron and 2 small cauldron shaped mugs w/drink.

I would say this Monster High School set was a huge hit with my kids and a must for any Monster High fans. It is definitely a well made product and if I had to spend the money on it I would have to conclude I wouldn't have been disappointed with the product. It came with plenty of accessories and opens up to be quite roomy. In my opinion it is made pretty sturdy and I love the fact that it closes up to fit under a bed or lay on a shelf in the closet. It is true the accessories don't fit in it when it is closed up, but if they made it to close with the accessories it wouldn't be as compact as it is.

Approximate Measurements:

When opened the 2 rooms combined measure approx 31" wide and 15" in depth, the middle wall is roughly 13 1/2" high, containing casket lockers and a doorway on one side and classroom with beakers & chalkboard on the other. The creepateria is roughly 16 1/2"wide and the classroom is roughly 15" wide. The top floor is roughly 12 1/2" wide by 7 3/4" depth with the wall being 12" high at the highest point.

When closed: It measures roughly 18" high,at highest peak, 15 1/2" wide and a 4" depth.
