Once upon a time in a far far away land, there lived a beautiful princess. This opening line has captured our hearts and imaginations since Disney released their first official princess, Snow White, on April 5, 1938. Over the years since, Disney has created many more admirable princesses each with their own unique story, endearing personalities, and blend of qualities that we’ve all grown to love. Decades later, we still resonate with them. Disney Princesses are some of the most iconic characters in the world, and every little girl wants to emulate them
Today, Disney is focusing on the ‘Modern Princess’, with the release of their new Disney Princess line. There are eleven princesses in this line and each one is not only portrayed with beauty and grace, but with current day attributes like a vibrant and pleasing personality, being kind and forgiving, being resilient, handling adversity, and having notable strengths, likes, passions, and goals. They’re designed to inspire children to take charge of their own storytelling.
In this generation, kids play differently than say they did even 20 years so. Kids have aspiration and big dreams, and they believe anything is possible. Impossible feats can be attained as experienced by this line of dolls. Each Princess is the heroine of a unique adventure story inspiring kids with messages of hope, optimism and the triumph of good over evil. Life can be magical, and the story begins with you.
The first release of the new collection is the Disney Princess Rapunzel. Rapunzel is known for her the magical healing power of long golden hair. She’s inquisitive, brave, has a sense of right and wrong, and has goodness in her heart. Rapunzel’s creativity and passion for life lead her on a path of self-discovery, and young girls can relate to this. The Rapunzel doll is 12 inches tall and has long enough hair to style and braid. She comes with a lavender dress full of bedazzling sparkles and matching shoes. She’s got gorgeous green eyes, long lashes, and her head, arms and legs move. Retails for around $18.00.
