After publishing the new monster high doll list for 2015 article, I have received plenty of feedback. One of which is from folks asking for places where they can buy custom monster high dolls online. It seems like these guys are hardcore collectors who have almost every commercial available monster high doll in their collections and are looking for something unique. This article is for them as I sourced the Internet to bring you a couple of places where you can order customer monster high dolls. You will also be able to source other dolls and kids toys from these websites.
Where to buy custom monster high dolls
Etsy is the global marketplace for all things hand made and that includes custom monster high dolls. The amount of choices available here is astounding and I am pretty confident you will find something you like. The only downside is the prices. I have seem them ranging from USD40 to over USD200. So, if you like something you see at Etsy, be prepared to prepare more than a retail version of the dolls.
Ebay is the familiar online marketplace we all know. Surprising, the number of custom monster high dolls for sale here is also quite high. Prices are about the same level as Etsy although there is a way for you to score some cheap customer high dolls. How? Watch for auction based items. Simply create an email alert that informs whenever there is a custom monster high doll up for sale via the auction format. Sometimes, you may get luck and score one well below the USD40 price tag.

I have not personally try it so I can’t tell you first hand how good is the service. However, this is probably the only way you can order something that fits your specifications 100%.
