I notice that my post on Prince Naveen had gotten some action
lately but I didn't think much of it. Then the other day
while surfing the net, I noticed that there was a Prince
Naveen for sale that wasn't part of a set.
When I got my Naveen, he was part
of a set. When I clicked to enlarge the picture,
he looked different than mine. At first I wasn't sure
he was different. On closer inspection. He has a new face
(I first noticed more space at the bottom of the eyes,
then they eye color was darker too!)
and a slightly different outfit too.
Here is the old one! I am not even going to get into the
hoopla about his race that was the buss on the net.
He came as part of a set! Neither he or the Princess had
bendable legs! Bad Mattel! Bad, Bad! But... I thought the
face was cute!
OK! The Whole Disney Thing!
Disney sometimes has Mattel produce their movie
related dolls and sometimes not! Sometimes
Disney switches up the the producer after a few years.
The best Disney doll are done by Mattel! (my opinion!)
New Naveen looks more cartoony!
Notice that his princely attire is a little different.
New Naveen has light green caps on the sleeve and a cape!
He has brown belt and pants and the Mattel Naveen has
green belt and pants. The applets are different too. Note
the difference in the body too! Mattel side facing cupped hands
to the side facing straight hands of the new doll.
One of the listings says the new doll is poseable.
