Merry Monsters™ Kelly®, Miranda®, and Kayla®

I saw Target's new exclusive Halloween Kelly® Merry Monsters™ dolls yesterday. The boxes don't say which monsters they're supposed to be, but it's pretty obvious.

Miranda's dressed as the Bride of Frankenstein.

This one is especially cool - she has green skin and painted-on hair detail with "stitches" on her forehead.

Kelly's dressed as a vampire.

Interestingly, Kelly has a widow's peek just like her Target-exclusive Vampire forefather, Halloween Party® Tommy® doll from 2001...

Halloween Party® Tommy® as a Vampire

It's disappointing to compare their costumes, though. Merry Monsters Kelly has a dress and a cape, whereas Halloween Party Tommy - who cost the same amount - has a vest, a shirt with attached pants, a double-faced cape with ribbon tie, and a stand. Hmm.

Merry Monsters Kelly, Kayla, and Miranda all have the 2006 "tall" Kelly® body with old heads (the open-mouth 1994 Kelly® head for Kayla and Miranda and the closed-mouth 1994 Kelly® head for Kelly).
