The Black & White limited edition Frankie Stein doll credits him with the following on the back of the box:

"The mad scientist behind the creation of Monster High is better known as Garrett Sander to those around the lab. Garrett has worked at Mattel for 5 years, beginning his career in packaging, moving onto product design after Monster High was born. Garrett says, 'it has always been my dream to create a toy line and I couldn't be more proud of what came out of the lab. But it wasn't without the help of all the monstrously talented creatures at Mattel that truly put the spark of life into Monster High!'"
