Doll Review: Freaky Fusion Operetta Monster High


Hi guys, 
Today's post will be a snowy photo review of the Monster High Freaky Fusion Operetta Doll from Monster High. 


Freaky Fusion Operetta was my first Operetta doll and there's a funny story about this one.  
One day she just showed up in the mail and I was surprised because I didn't remember ordering her!  Turns out Pumpkin Pie (who was 5 at the time) ordered her off of Amazon from the iPad accidentally using the 1-click shopping button.  Fun!    
So we now have an Operetta in our collection. :) 


Although I prefer to collect the signature version of each character, I do not have the signature Operetta.  She is only found on the secondary market at this point and I'm not sure if I like her enough to pay the extra money just to have her.  There are many other versions of Operreta that I prefer, so I may just get her outfit instead.  
The photo on the back of this box is what the signature version of Operetta looks like in case you aren't familiar with this line. 


This version of Operetta was created to coincide with the Monster High movie that was released in 2014 called Monster High: Freaky Fusion .  It introduced a few new hybrid characters such as a skeleton moth , a ghost mermaid and a zombie unicorn as well as fusing some of the main characters together (Lagoonafire (Jinafire/Lagoona) and Dracubecca Draculaura/Robecca, etc.) It was a really cute movie and the girls and I really enjoyed it. A few of the characters end up just having "fashions inspired by the other ghouls", which is the case for Operetta.  She is fused with Frankie's style. 


Here's Operetta straight out of the box.  She also comes with a stand and doll brush.  
She retailed originally at around $14.99, but is currently on sale for $11.99 on Amazon. 
Normally, I wouldn't put red, black, pink and purple in an outfit together, but it seems to work pretty well. 


She has straight hair that was very soft and easy to brush.  I also like the extra detail around the hem of her dress. 


She has one of the prettiest Monster High faces, in my opinion.  I love her tiny beauty mark and full lips. 


Cute shoes. 

Character-wise, Operetta is the daughter of The Phantom of the Opera.  Her animated character is portrayed with a strong Southern American accent and is very sassy and strong-willed.  Her signature style is reminescent of the 1940s (although later versions of her seem to channel the 50s), but her Freaky Fusion doll is much more modern.  She has a very powerful singing voice that can debilitate anyone that hears it.  Although she is a phantom, she always appears solid in form, unlike other "ghosts" such as Spectra  or Sirena.  







These photos were actually all taken last winter after we had [one of our many] snow storms.  I never got around to sharing them then, so thought I would do so now!

Overall, this is a cute version of Operetta and a great doll for younger collectors due to her low-maintenance straight hair.  I love her cute style and hope you enjoyed the review.

  1. Very interesting review Farrah. I don't collect these dolls, but it's always interesting to read about them and what other people think of them.
    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks, Xanadu! I agree, it's always fun to see other dolls up close, even if we don't necessarily collect them. :)
      Hugs back xo

  2. You are lucky your daughter only bought a doll and not anything else - and wasn't it great that it was one you didn't have in your collection? She is very pretty and looks like she is having a great time in the snow.

    1. Yes, it worked out pretty well! Can you imagine if she bought something else?? Lol. I have since taken the Amazon app off of my iPad! :)

  3. She's a cool doll and the snow makes a perfect backdrop for her photos. You have no idea how hard I laughed though when I got to the part about how you came to have her, hysterical! "This doll was purchased by me for my own collection."--well, sort of! ROFL!

    I have to remember the next time I buy from Amazon to link through you, someone I know might as well benefit.

    1. Lol, glad you had a good laugh!! Thanks for considering using the link! To be honest, I don't really understand how it works. I think I've made like $1 since I started it a few months ago, haha. :)

  5. I reall like the shade of red they used for her hair. She's very eye-catching, especially against the snowy backgrounds! :)

  6. I love her shoes! Maybe they'll reuse them for an Ever After High doll sometime.

    What is the daughter of the Phantom of the Opera doing with a Southern accent? She should be French!

    1. Yes, you're right about that accent! This is what I found per Monster High wiki "Despite her opera inspired name and background, Operetta seems to be highly influenced by Elvis Presley with her Southern accent, interests, and somewhat rebel attitude."

  8. I really like this Operetta, she's got a gorgeous face, but I already have 2 Operetta dolls. I found a signature Operetta by a chance at a toy store a couple of years ago and I still can't belive how lucky I was. I also found signature Venus and didn't buy her because she was quite expensive and now I regret it.

    I loved your review, by the way. Cheers.

    1. Hi monstercrafts,
      Wow, that is great that you were able to find the 1st wave Operetta! I had to get my signature Venus from Ebay, used, but luckily out of the box, she wasn't very expensive. Thank you for your nice comment. :)
      Cheers!

  9. I didn't like Operetta before, but a few months ago we had a big promotion in one of hipermarkets: a lot of MH - dolls were so cheap, so I bought one of them (Operetta). After that, I started to like her so much. :) Your doll looks great in the snow landscape. Greetings :)

    1. Hi Aya,
      Greetings to you as well! It's always fun to see a new face on here. I'm glad you were able to get your Operetta at a good price! I always try to buy mine on sale. They are addicting! :)

  10. I'm not into the Monster High dolls but I now always look at them in the supermarket because of other peoples photos, they're very interesting looking dolls and I like that they have these little stories behind them.
    This girl is very colourful, I love her red and black shoes and the mismatched tights, it all works very well, and is particularly striking in the snowy photos :)

    1. Hi Sharon,
      Yes, I think it's the pesronalities and the stories that really got me into these dolls. If I had not watched the episodes and movies, I don't know if I ever would've started to collect them as, in all honesty, their faces can be a bit expressionless! I love the creativity that goes into their outfits and accessories and they really do grow on you! I'm interested to see how the line changes this year as it is being redesigned to appeal to the new generation of kids, since the original generation of kids are now growing out of them.
      Thanks for commenting! :)
