So curious is this stereotyping? A witch and her best friend, a black cat?

tumblr_n5c2wniYrx1szp73uo1_r1_500Casta Fierce is a 2014-introduced and all-around character. She is a witch, specifically the daughter of Circe, and the lead singer of The Spells. Aside from Casta, The Spells consist of three girls who are uniquely immune to Casta’s magic. Like her mother, Casta can turn anyone into any animal, but she has limited control over her powers. One misspoken word or unfortunately phrased sentence is enough to turn anyone hearing it into the matching animal. This has put a damper on her singing career, but Casta and her band keep making music as they look for solutions. Casta is a close friend of Catty Noir, a colleague of hers.

Catty Noir is a 2013-introduced and all-around character. She is a werecat and a student at Monster High. Having striven for a place in the music industry from a very young age, Catty is a world-famous pop star and teen idol, who has many fans at Monster High. It was a meeting with these fans that eventually made her decide to put her career on hold at age 16 to enjoy what remained of her teenage years as a regular student. Though she loves to sing and entertain others, it does her good to finally have time for herself again. One thing she hasn’t put on hold is her adherence to superstition. In general, the way it affects her life is small and can be worked with, but occasionally her uncompromising beliefs get her into trouble.

One thing I love about their dolls, it allows kids and uh yeah, us adults to be proud of who/what we are. We don’t have to aspire to be Barbie perfect. JMO!
