The Monster High magazine debuted in Spain on September 26, 2011, and was published by Panini España. Several European countries followed swiftly after, such as France and Germany. The first issue written in English followed half a year later when the magazine debuted in the UK. It would take nearly two years before the USA, the franchise's country of origin, would receive its own edition. While the European magazine have a monthly release schedule, the USAmerican one is limited to a quarterly release schedule.
“Monster High is overflowing with insights from your favorite characters – Draculaura, Clawdeen, or Ghoulia. Everything you could want to know about their lives at school and at home can be found here in this colorful and well-illustrated mag. Plus, you can try out one of the competitions, such as sending in your drawings of your favorite monsters and have a go at the monstrously fiendish puzzles, and more often than not, there’s a fang-tastic free gift.”
The UK Magazines were published in the UK and internationally by Egmont Publishing Group, a brand new pre-teen title aimed at girls aged 7 to 12. The magazine has a cover price of £2.99 (€3.57) and a print run of 100,000 in the UK. The magazine will be published as a result of a licensing agreement with brand owner Mattel. It is available from all newsagents, larger supermarkets, and by subscription.
A Premiere Issue released earlier than the magazine came on sale in the UK with “7 DEC 2011 - 10 JAN 2012”. It may not actually be called Issue 0; however, no official name was released for the magazine. No further issues were released following it. The magazine came with 5 free gifts (cosmetics in a resealable case) and 8 posters. The magazine itself was around 20 pages long, with not much writing in it, but lots of pictures, a few games, and quizzes.
