This play set has an incredible amount of detail. And it's much bigger than it looks from the picture above. You can't get an idea of the scale from that picture.

So here is another picture with some kids playing with the Monster High School so you can get a better idea of just how big this thing really is:

Of course, it stands to reason it has to be pretty good sized to be able to accommodate the size of the Monster High dolls. Being over 4 feet tall and 5 feet wide, it's plenty big enough for lots of action play with the dolls from Monster High!

Now obviously something that big doesn't come all set up in a huge box. Think how much it would cost to ship it! But what that means is.. yes, you guessed it... some assembly required! In fact, there is a lot of assembly, but it does come with a detailed instruction sheet to tell you exactly what needs to go where.

So if you're buying this as a gift, keep it mind SOMEONE is going to have to put it together, and if Santa is bringing it to some lucky child, better allow plenty of time for assembling the set.

TIPS: a couple of options! For Christmas gift giving, you might work on it and get at least part of it assembled ahead of time, or the entire thing if you've got someplace to hide it. Cover it with a sheet and place a big bow on top, then put it under the tree! Or if you child has the patience to wait for it to be put together before they can play with it, allow them the fun of unwrapping it and unboxing it... then be prepared to help get it all set up, depending on the age of the child.

The set has multiple levels and many rooms for playing with the dolls. But it would not only be a great set for kids to play with, but look pretty awesome as a stage to pose dolls for display.

From the tall clock tower and gargoyle down to the picnic table, everything about this set has wonderful detailing, making it even more fun.

Video Review of the Monster High Deadluxe High School Playset

To get a good overview of everything in this set, watch this video review to see everything it offers. You even get to see a speeded up version of the playset being assembled.

There are so many things tucked away in different parts of the play set, like the office in the clock tower. It even has a bathroom! And a little flower bed that has warped looking Venus flytrap plants. There's even a tentacle in a locker that will hold a doll!

There's a movable staircase (shades of Harry Potter!),  A radio station. And Draculura's room where she can hang upside down, and the room furnishings are all upside down as well.

There are lots of little nooks and crannies where dolls can be posed and played with.

Just be aware, there are NO dolls included with this playset! But you can take care of that oversight by checking out this Monster High Original Ghouls collection and get 6 dolls all at once, a great group of ghouls to for play or posing!
