Disney Dolls

Hey Gang!

This is my Disney Month!  So, I will talk a little and show some pictures
of Disney dolls.  You know I can't purchase nor would I want to purchase all of
the dolls I will be show this month, so many will be pictures taken in store. So
some will be new in box and others will be from the thrift store or in my collection.
I may not be able to do detail pictures but I will try! I will be hard for me
to post, respond and view other blogs because my tablet is down!  Now
that is a bummer.  I am work from the library! :(  Thank goodness for
the library!

First, I want to say that no one has done a better job merchandising their
products as Disney!  They do the full roll out normally!  I guess they have struck
gold with the Princess movies because they keep them coming.  Along with the
movies you get the dolls and other Paraphernalia!

Mattel has done many of the Disney dolls sold in the U.S. along with a few other
companies.  Because of the many companies making the dolls, the face mold of the
princesses have change over the years. Also depending on where you purchased it
(in a toy store and not Disney Stores) it could be different in the same year. There
are many face molds to each princes doll.  I would say even more than Barbie!
The only draw back is that there is not a date on the heads of these dolls like
Barbie. Below is one of the new Mattel Sleep Beauty doll. I would say this head
mold is about two years old but don't hold me to it!
 I also found this one in the store!
 I thought she was the same as this one but side by side they look different!
Here some of my Sleeping Beautys for this blog! This is my AA Sleeping Beauty

Two other dolls that I have also.  The one on the right's eyes change when
hot water is applied.
Frozen was a big success for Disney!  They have done several of the dolls from
the movie. Below is Anna.  Redheads do well for Disney and there seems to be
more redheaded characters now. Something that Mattel doesn't do as many of.

Close up of Anna.  Back when Mattel did the balloon head/ big head dolls.
they made the Disney dolls heads larger too!  Although now the Mattel doll
heads aren't quite as large as they use to be, the Disney doll heads remain large.
Many people don't like the Disney dolls because they think that they look too
cartoonish.  I believe it depends on the doll.  Some are and some aren't as much.

I do like the mixture of color in this dolls hair.  Strawberry!
Anna and Elsa

Disney has done a skating version of these dolls also!
It would have been nice to have cute clothing and not painted on items.
Oh, well!
Elsa Skate version
Also the painted arms.

Not being a follower of the movie I didn't know what to expect in dolls or
play related items from the movie.

Next is Kristoff.  This is the one that is seen most often in stores!

Close up!
I don't real like clothing of any type that is attached and can not be removed.  So
although I am alway on the hunt for new guys.  I won't be purchasing this guy!
I do like his face.
Painted on under shirt and painted on pants.  Bummer!  I sure the shoes  don't
come off either.
There are other version of this doll!

 This is the 2pak Anna and Kristoff

I expect that the doll should not be painted. They do not add to cart, then sew onto clothing, no need to paint! The first is like sleeping beauty, sleeping brown as well! They're beautiful! The Disney Store dolls are beautiful, I have to Rapunzel. :)

I enjoyed looking at these photos of Disney dolls! I do not have any of these.

D7ana said...

Thanks for sharing these photos of the Disney dolls. I would buy more Disney dolls if the heads were smaller. Most are too huge.

Brini said...

I always check out the Disney dolls just to see how they are different. You have some great dolls and some I have not seen so I will have to look at them a little more closely now. That AA Sleeping Beauty is cute!

Ms. Leo said...

Thanks for your comments RoxanneRoxanne, D7ana and Brini.

RoxanneRoxanne, There are some interested Disney doll out there.

D7ana, some of the older dolls don't have large heads but they do have larger eyes than Mattle dolls.

Brini, Mattel never used that face mold again on any other Sleeping Beauty doll. There is something about her eyes that I find lovely!

That AA sleeping beauty doll is beautiful. I like that she has a different look.

Thanks for your comment Vanessa. It is sad that they haven't use this head sculpt again.
