Amazingly cool doll!! DO NOT pay over $25, though!!,
= Durability: = Fun: = Educational:
This review is from: Monster High Travel Scaris Jinafire Long Doll (Toy)
I FINALLY scored one of these & I have to say it ROCKS!! It is very detailed, as many of these MH dolls are, but this one is really exceptional! The details on the hair decoration, the scales, tail, WOW! I didn't take her out of the box as she's an Xmas gift.
Jinafire is pretty rare, so I had to work to get her, but let me reassure other parents: Be patient. Do NOT pay over $25 for these dolls! It encourages the "scalper" types.
Here's what you can do: Toys R Us open 'til 1am in December. Ask when their shipments come on & get there around Midnight. The boxes with the new dolls are labeled "Scaris". Each box has either 2 Jinafire or 2 Skelita dolls + the usual Rochelle, Clawdeen dolls. If you spot a "Scaris" box, just ask a worker to open it, they are very helpful - don't be shy. ;).

I agree...DO NOT pay these prices for these dolls! These people who post them on here for $40.00 plus, are raping the consumer with this price! Should not be allowed to do this to the kids who really want these dolls! Check Target, they are helpful and in my area they have put a watch on them for people who come into buy to post and sell!

I found one today at Walmart for $19.97. And they were much more helpful than Toys r us.

If you still haven't found this doll, I suggest checking Mattel's website. They have a store on there and Jinifire is one of them available as of this morning. $19.99 plus shipping.

This is where I got mine as well, on the Mattel site, but as of Saturday the 15th, they did not have any available. It's not even listed on their site, so I think they sold out.

Yes, thanks for the tip! I went to Toys R Us at about 10:00 p.m. on a restocking day and they were just bringing in the boxes of new toys. I found one that my daughter had been wanting very much and only had to pay the regular retail price.
