During an annual holiday preview from Disney Consumer Products held in New York City, we were given a first look at many new items coming from Disney Store and other Disney licensees including the dolls featured in this article that will be available exclusively from Disney Store and DisneyStore.com.
Pictured left is the next entry in the popular Animators’ Collection series of toddler dolls, deluxe editions. Following both Cinderella and Ariel are Anna and Elsa from Disney’s Frozen. Sold together as a set for $99.95, the dolls are featured in their nightgowns with matching blankets and a plush Olaf, plus an alternate complete set of wardrobe to wear now that the sky is awake. Also on the Frozen (hot) front is a two-doll pack of Ice Skating Anna and Elsa dolls. Both sets available fall 2014.
The Aurora Singing Deluxe Doll has just become available online at DisneyStore.com and is already making waves. Featuring isolated vocals taken directly from their respective films, the dolls also offer additional interactivity: magically stir Tiana’s pot of gumbo while she sings ‘Almost There’ from The Princess and the Frog; Complete Rapunzel’s painting with water while she sings ‘When Will My Life Begin’ from Tangled; and marvel at how Merida’s arrows magically land on target while she speaks phrases from Disney/Pixar’s Brave. Also coming, but not on display at the event, will be Ariel from The Little Mermaid. The rest of the collection should be available online beginning July 7.
As a follow-up to last year’s deluxe doll set featuring the cast of The Little Mermaid and in support of the Blu-ray release later this year, Disney Store will offer a deluxe doll set for Sleeping Beauty. The set features Maleficent, Aurora in her blue dress (with pink dress included), Prince Phillip, Flora, Fauna and Merryweather and Phillip’s faithful steed, Samson. Available fall 2014.
Finally, we have a sneak peek at the upcoming Disney Fairytale Designer Collection series’ newest installment of couples. Featured are: Cinderella with Prince Charming; Aurora as Briar Rose with Prince Phillip; Tiana with Naveen; Pocahontas with John Smith; and Mulan with Li Shang. Be sure to check out the official Disney Store blog soon for more photos and details about the collection and release dates.
