The Disney Princess Dolls have had plastic surgery! In an effort to refine their doll likeness, Disney Store doll designers went back to the original animation cels to fine-tune each of the princesses’ doll figures, faces and even outfits. Tweaking details like making Ariel’s hair just a bit redder or making sure that Cinderella’s dress glitters just like it did when the fairy godmother touched it with her magic wand, the dolls look even better! In the case of Jasmine, Pocahontas and Mulan, they even look like the women they’re supposed to be instead of Caucasians with different colored skin. They’re also wearing less makeup (check out Aurora to see what I mean!).
Just arrived in Disney Stores near you, these newly made-over dolls ($17) include Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White. In addition, all of the dolls now come with their friends from the movies — Belle from Beauty and the Beast comes with Mrs. Potts, Chip and Lumiere; The Little Mermaid‘s Ariel comes with Flounder and Sebastian; Cinderella gets help from Gus, Jacque and Suzy; Sleeping Beauty‘s Aurora finds magic with Flora, Fauna & Merryweather; Snow White whistles while she works with Happy and Dopey; and more. Each doll also comes with a hair brush.
