Disney Sofia the First Talking Sofia and Animal Friends. Wearing her very special amulet from the King, Sofia can understand and talk with animals — just like in the Disney Jr. series. Dressed in her signature princess gown, this Sofia 10 1/2″ doll can recognize and talk with three of her best animal friends: Clover the Rabbit, Robin the Robin and Mia the Bluebird. When girls bring each animal close to Sofia’s amulet, it glows, and Sofia can recognize and talk to each beloved friend and get unique responses in return! With multiple character-specific phrases from Sofia and her animal friends, it’s endless interactive friendship fun! MSRP: $39.99, Available July 2013
Disney Sofia the First Magical Talking Castle. With so many play areas and hidden surprises, the Magical Talking Castle is the perfect place for the charming Sofia the First to call home. When girls place Sofia or Clover the Rabbit on the castle’s special base, they can ‘magically’ hear phrases said in each character’s voice. But that’s just the beginning: Bring in other 3″ dolls and figures from across the line to bring Sofia’s world to life and unlock even more character phrases. Girls can extend an outdoor play level and footbridge to Enchancia and explore the castle grounds, or take Sofia and Clover on a picnic. Inside the castle, Sofia can glide down the staircase, enjoy royal dancing and dining in the ballroom, or find Clover hiding in the window seat. With another day of princess training about to end, all that’s left for Sofia to do is have sweet dreams in her lavish royal bedroom. Castle includes furniture, Sofia doll and Clover figure. Other dolls and figures sold separately. MSRP: $59.99, Available July 2013

To further add to the fairytale fun, Ariel ‘sings’ two different songs from the movie as she transforms! MSRP: $24.99, Available July 2013
Disney Princess Ultimate Dream Castle. The Disney Princess Ultimate Dream Castle is more enchanting than ever! This brand new castle includes fairytale-themed rooms for all girls’ favorite princesses — including a bedroom for Rapunzel and a spiraling hair ‘elevator’ for her and her princess friends to go up and down. The castle also comes to life with the Disney Magic Mirror App (Available on the App Store?). When girls scan the castle’s defined labels with an iOS device they unlock and trigger activities in each princess’ room and around the outside of the castle. The three-story castle also includes a charming kitchen where Snow White can ‘bake,’ a fancy dining room for Belle to serve her guests, a bathroom for Ariel to lounge in the tub, a sewing room for Cinderella to make pretty dresses, and a royal vanity for Sleeping Beauty to get ready.
