Bonita Femur – Freaky Fusion – Monster High doll review

The Freaky Fusion Hybrids are popping up at Toys R Us stores all over and I had to grab a set! I wasn’t excited for these dolls until I saw owner photos popping up on tumblr. I’ve been checking my TRU daily, and they were there this morning! I’ll break these reviews up by doll so that each post isn’t massive. My first pick is Bonita Femur ~ the daughter of the Mothman (Father) and the Skeleton (Mother).

Bonita Femur

I will post all of their diaries, later. I’m still trying to get a good clear scan of them.
Bonita Femur
Bonita has this adorable face with purple eyes and little buggy pupils. I chose this doll because she looked cute, although some people might claim I picked a “wonky” doll. Sometimes wonky is a good thing.
Bonita has lips that resemble both Skelita and the Skeleton CAM, an obvious wink to her mother’s scaritage.Bonita FemurBonita Femur
Bonita’s head features no ears. She has two antennae on the top of her head. She does not have any earrings.

Bonita wears a ponytail and a little moth/butterfly accessory in her hair. The ponytail holder is tri-colored in dark pink, yellow, and light pink.

The one thing that isn’t so obvious about Bonita is that she has HAIR! I mean tons of it! Look at this! I don’t think Catty Noir is the character with the longest hair, now! Unlike Catty, Bonita’s hair is very good quality! There was little shedding the first time I brushed it; the hair has a super soft quality, as well.

Take a moment to admire those wings! These are one of the defining features of the Bonita doll. These wings attach to her back with a sculpting that makes them appear skeletal as well.

This is the other side of the wing attachments. That screw is part of the piece that goes into the doll’s back.

Bonita’s back features two holes (one is under her dress in this shot) that allows her wings to attach. I never really got a good “click” when I put them back in, but they’ve never fallen out, so I assume all is well.

One thing to note about these wings is that they are made from a single piece of pink plastic (except the yellow inserts). That black section is painted, and my doll has a slight defect in that the black paint isn’t perfect on the bottom of one of the wings. It isn’t a huge deal to me, but picky collectors may want to add that to their checklist before they purchase a Bonita doll.

Bonita wears a long-sleeve short dress with butterfly/moths on the top. The sleeves have a oval print that I imagine is supposed to look like holes from Bonita chewing on her clothes (it’s a moth thing). Her skirt is a pink mesh with the same print from the top below. It is uneven and not hemmed, but like many Monster High clothes, it doesn’t appear to be in danger of fraying.
Bonita’s belt is bright yellow with a moth on it. The actual belt looks like a spine to me.

Bonita’s shoes are awesome! They are bright yellow and allow you to see her little toes underneath. They are not just heels, they are also raised platforms, which means she stands differently with and without them.

When holding Bonita, you notice that her torso makes noise when you touch it. I immediately assumed she would have a plastic piece like Skelita does. I was wrong. This plastic vest is attached to the doll with one strip of tape in the back. LOOK AT THIS THING!

This is a crazy detailed sewn piece of plastic that goes under the doll! It has arm holes! It could be a separate outfit piece!

But this is the picture you want. What does that beautiful body look like without anything covering it? She has a rib covering (but there is flesh underneath those ribs) She has a skeletal neck, arms, and hands. From her waist down, she is all furry moth, though. You can see how differently she stands here. Without the shoes to prop her up, the doll has to lean forward to balance against the longer wings.

Are you ready for some fun? Bonita is cute in her stock outfit, but I wanted this doll to play!

And this is the perfect outfit for her! (Kappi isn’t happy that I gave it away)

And this is how she will stay for me. So sassy! I love how this dress is a little tight and still allows you to see some of her body details while completely covering her.

If you are going to redress your Bonita doll, remember that those wing attachments go down farther than a normal winged monster. You will need to adjust for that in her clothing.

And that is Bonita! Her personality in the diaries is nervous and anxious, but I hope you don’t have any anxiety about adding her to your collection! She is my favorite doll of the three hybrids, and that was a shock to me!

  1. So many pictures of Bonita have been popping up, but yours take the cake! You always show us the details of each doll. I knew I wanted her, but after your review, I NEED her!

  2. Is it possible/easy to remove the yellow inserts or are they glued on? I didn’t really like them and I was thinking of painting the wings black and leaving it without the yellow parts…

    1. Check out one of the photos of her back (you may have to click it to enlarge) The yellow is attached with pegs, but I don’t see any glue. I’d say you could probably remove them, but you probably wouldn’t be able to put them back easily. It’s difficult to say without trying it, and I’d rather not ruin my doll. Sorry, I don’t feel like I was a lot of help on that one ^^;

  3. I just got her today she’s so cool I was worried about taking the paper out from under her dress can u tell me if it ruins the shape of the dress?
