Jackson Jekyll and Frankie Stein Picnic Casket Doll Set

Jackson Jekyll Frankie Stein Picnic Casket Monster High Dolls
Released in January 2014 the Picnic Casket set contains 2 Monster High dolls.  It's the 2nd incarnation of Jackson Jekyll, who is Holt Hyde's alter ego.  The boy Monster High dolls are generally harder to find so I was happy to find this one online for about the same price as I would pay in a store.  This pair is enjoying getting to know each other a little better over a springtime picnic.  Could there be sparks in the air between them?  Read more on my Monster High School blog.
