  1. I actually do like these better than the Mattel version, and I’m super happy to see Pocahontas and Mulan get some widely available dolls. Thanks for sharing this! :D

  2. They have Mulan and Pocahontas, which automatically gives them a leg up on Mattel. I really love both Mulan (not wearing pink hallelujah!) and Jasmine. I’ll get them and likely Pocahontas, too, even though I don’t care for her Disney version much. The faces look really cute. I think Rapunzel and Merida are adorable, too. Articulation looks pretty basic, but these may be more basic dolls and princesses have always been skewed younger, so that’s okay with me.

    I like them a lot.

    1. Yeah mulan looks so good! I love the attention to her dress, and the face mould for her is awesome :D Pocohontas’s dress is a little iffy for me, but seeing as this seems to be the “Fashion Princess” line I assume there’d be more toned down dresses. Even if there aren’t, I love the faces so much more than the latest mattel ones, will definitely be buying!

  3. Great to see Pocahontas included(Yay!)… Don’t have words for Cinderella, and Ariel’s dress looks a little awkward. Mulan, Pocahontas, and Merida are the winners for me so far, but I’m excited to see how Aurora, and Belle turn out!

  4. Nope, not a fan. Merida and Rapunzel have huge heads. Ariel’s and Rapunzel’s hair needs some help already. I don’t like Jasmine’s or Ariel’s outfits, they look more like pajamas. I agree with Lori that these are probably marketed for younger kids. I have a 6 year old daughter. When I show her these vs. the dolls at the Disney Store, it won’t even be a contest on who she will want. These are pretty bad for a doll collector AND for a 6 year old who plays with dolls. Thumbs-down.

  5. I do not like these, Mulans outfit is cute, but the head shape is awkward on the other dolls, and the hair looks like it will be a funny texture. I don’t think we would buy these, as an adult collector or my 6 year old daughter.

  6. I have seen these in store and they look much better in person. They are a bit off but Merida and Jasmine are my favorites, as well as Mulan. I dislike that Ariel is in a gown and now fins. I do believe Hasbro did her movie doll. Mattel’s dolls had really gotten away from the movie versions of the dolls and looked a bit robotic. This is definitely a step in the right direction but I honestly wish they’d get back to making the clothes look more like the movie versions as well.

  7. I think that the Disney Store dolls are the best from any point of view: better quality, more movie accurate clothes, definitely movie accurate face molds, better hair texture, lower price.

    I’m not a fan of Mattel princesses: their faces are too Barbie like, their clothes are not movie accurate, and sometimes their outfits can even be molded in the plastic of their bodies, they use to wear silly colorful tiaras, their haistyles are sometimes not movie accurate, they use to have a bit of emptiness in their expressions.

    I’m not a fan of the new Hasbro princesses either: their dresses look like the imitation costumes that the little girls use to wear at Carnival parties, and over all their dresses are not movie accurate, most of their costumes are overdecorated but not detailed, their heads are too big, some of their faces do not resemble the characters.
    I appreciate that Mulan is coming in her normal dress and not in the formal one, but I think that Pocahontas os not showing her true style.

    I saw Cinderella, Ariel and Rapunzel in a toy store: Cinderella’s head is huge, Ariel has a silly overall look to me (silly smile, silly haistyle, stiff looking dress), but I must admit I like Rapunzel because her dress has nice contrasting shades of purple and lilac, her face looks a lot like the movie, and even if her head is big, it doesn’t look too big since Rapunzel has a quite large, round head in the movie too.

  8. I think these dolls are terrible. I was at Toys R Us just today and couldn’t find Pocahontas or Mulan. Additionally, their heads are huge, their clothes were awkward, and Elsa (My daughter’s favorite) was unrealistically pasty white. For all the hype about making the dolls more realistic and more racially accurate, I think these are a big fail. I’m also mad because I bought my daughter a fairly expensive miniature doll set with a castle for Christmas. Now if I want to add to the set, the dolls won’t match. I have other Mattel dolls (not Disney princess) that I absolutely love. Mattel just makes good dolls, period.

  9. Nope. I much prefer the old (Mattel) dolls. These ones have huge heads and no nexks. And then they are a little shorter overall. My 3 yo daughter likes to change their clothes constantly and I doubt these would be interchangeable with Barbie clothes. Their faces are kind of cute in a way, but I think they could be refined because something is definitely off.

  10. I love the hasbro disney princess dolls, I actually have five of them – Aurora, Belle, Rapunzel, Ariel & Cinderella. They look better than Mattel Dolls and Hasbro said in their release that these dolls are “reimagined” so we really can’t expect them to make the exact toy version (of the movie version) of the princesses. My favorite ia Princess Aurora and her hair is perfect.
