Welcome to Dark Universe

Bring it on down to Monsterville!

Monsterville

This Halloween, Target welcomes you to “Monsterville.”

For this year’s Halloween, you could bring it on down to Monsterville with Target’s exclusively licensed Universal Monsters themed products. Made by Rubie’s, Target has released a series of costumes, make-up kits, and decor under the name “Monsterville.” Unlike many attempts at offering a Universal Monsters facsimile, these products are completely authentic as they feature not only the iconic monsters such as Boris Karloff’s Frankenstein’s Monster and The Mummy, but also the classic Universal Monsters title font.

For the sake of this article, there have been a few more generic monster items under the “Monsterville” banner that we’ve left out. For more on the “Monsterville” line, I highly recommend checking out SyFy Wire‘s piece on the collection and, please remember, that SyFy is under the parent company of Universal.

We’ve had the opportunity to see the “Monsterville” collection up close and the whole entire line is incredible. Nowadays it’s rare to see such a tie-in with the Universal Monsters and it’s great seeing the classic monsters represented on store shelves today. The Target exclusive line is well made, highly detailed, and brings to life the Universal Monsters in a very authentic way. Simply put, if you love the classic monsters and if you collect Universal Monsters memorabilia, Target’s “Monsterville” collection is a must have.

Stay tuned for our review of the Halloween Mummy Head this week!
