From Elsa to Ariel, Disney Princess dolls allow children to play with their favorite movie heroines, turning on their imaginations and helping them dream as big as the princesses do. When choosing the right doll for your child, keep in mind the age and play ranges of your child. Disney makes many “fashion” style dolls that are between 9” to 11” tall and come in a very affordable price range. These dolls are either dressed in outfits similar to what the character wore in the movie, or in a stylized sparkly ball gown that are generally in the same colors as the original, but much fancier. You can also find “classic” dolls that cost a little more, but are more traditional in terms of how closely the doll’s face and attire match the on-screen original. Disney makes a whole line of “Toddler” dolls which are larger and more “huggable.” These dolls look like children, rather than the grown-up fashion doll versions. If you are looking for a bath-time doll, Disney makes princess dolls with hard plastic dresses designed to do well in the water. At higher prices, you can find dolls that light up and sing your child’s favorite songs from the movie.
