Talking Frankenstein doll

It's alive!!! Actually the Playskool Frankenstein doll just talks, but you can always pretend he's breathing. I got this big, posable doll for $15. And when you open up his jacket you can see gears and a big heart. When you push the heart, he says things like "I feel better." But when you take the heart out he says sadly, "Fix me." He's very endearing.

I've been trying to figure out why Playskool would make a Frankenstein doll for children. Especially since Frankie kills a child in the classic movie. Maybe Playskool has a hidden agenda to make monsters cute enough that children might trust them. So why didn't they also make a mummy, wolfman or vampire doll?
