Earlier today, Disney Consumer Products and JAKKS Pacific held a VIP (Very Important Princess) event at the Toys ‘R’ Us in New York’s Times Square in which future princess socialites were invited to partake in various activities in support of the launch of what’s already made the list of several must-haves this holiday season, the Disney Princess and Me line of dolls and accessories.
Upon checking in for the event, attendees were given a lanyard which listed the various activities offered at the event and, after completing the first quest of determining which of the princess they were most like as per a personality quiz, were sent on to the grace the pink carpet and head into the main event space. Other activities during the event included a royal salon, a ‘magical mani’ [cure], the opportunity to take a free photo with their favorite Princess & Me doll (and optionally dress in one of the matching dresses), decorate the frame for the photo and then partake in the tea party itself before taking the royal princess pledge and receiving a departing gift.
On October 16, Toys ‘R’ Us stores across the nation will be hosting their own Princess & Me Royal Party events between 2 – 4 pm. Activities during the event include decorating your own Princess & Me tiara, story time and more.
The Disney Princess and Me Doll collection is currently available exclusively through Toys ‘R’ Us and QVC and will be coming to Disney Store late 2010. You can order the dolls online today at Toys ‘R’ Us: Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Tiana

Additionally, here is a gallery of Disney Princess & Me product images supplied to us by JAKKS Pacific.
Aimed at girls ages 5 – 8, the Princess & Me dolls (Tiana, Aurora, Cinderella, Ariel, Belle and Rapunzel) measure a whopping 18″ in height and seek to engage the child into exploring a whole new world of play beyond the cardboard box. Their unique facial features as the classic Disney Princesses are re-imagined as how they might appear if they were tweens. Each retails for $49.99 and includes a booklet filled with Disney Princess fun facts and activities and the opportunity to register so the child receives a special letter on their birthday from their favorite Princess.
The real slant on the collection, however, is that there is a full line of accessories and highly-detailed wardrobe available which includes actual Disney Princess roleplay dresses for the child that match the doll’s clothing exactly. There’s also a line of purses inspired by each of the Disney Princesses that comes in both child and doll sizes (shown together with the dresses below, but sold separately).
The matching child dresses are also $49.99 each while the individual doll outfits are $14.99 – $19.99 each (ballet and sleepwear at launch). Also available is a Princess & Me Vanity Set for $14.99, a Princess & Me Wardrobe for $39.99 and a Princess & Me Canopy Bed for $49.99.
The collection will be available exclusively at Toys ‘R’ Us beginning in August and the Disney Store in fall. Additionally, QVC will introduce the collection next month to accept pre-orders.

Disney Consumer Products kicked off its 2010 holiday tour this past week in New York City and brought representatives from every division imaginable to show off all of the new wonderful products you’ll be finding on the shelves this holiday season and we were there to help spread all the joy with you.
Naturally one of the big pushes is for Disney’s Tangled (nee Rapunzel) and Disney Consumer Products has an amazing array of toys and dolls representing the film from Disney Consumer Products, Mattel, JAKKS Pacific and more. Below you’ll find our gallery and additional information on each of the items, but we’d like to take a few moments to highlight some of the things we found (note there may be some minor spoilers).
First up are some of the offerings from Disney Store. As one would likely expect, there is a role playing dress available ($39.50) along with accessories: a braided ‘hair halo’ with about 3′ of extensions ($14.50) and light-up wand ($10.50), shoes ($16.50) and wand ($10.50).
The 11 1/2 inch dolls come with a whopping 17″ of advertised hair (although a couple of inches may not be readily visible) with glittering strands of hair. This is a tribute to the magical powers Rapunzel’s hair has that cause it to glow when it’s brushed (yes, look for a lot of glowing hair Tangled products). Either way, it’s quite impressive (* scissors optional). The doll will be available in a variety of configurations: as a single with paintbrush and Pascal accessories ($14.50; Flynn Rider also available with share and wear comb/tiara), as the Rapunzel Boutique Set which includes three dresses from the film and two mannequin forms ($29.50) and as a set with Flynn Rider with their ‘celebration’ outfits ($29.50).
Another standout for Disney Store is the Rapunzel Toddler Doll ($24.50) which — I dare say — is absolutely darling and sure to be one the biggest hits of the line. We’re told that Glen Keane was so enamoured by toddler Rapunzel that more of her was added into the film than originally planned and we can definitely see why. She’s made from a soft plastic.
It has been noted that the PVC figurine set ($19.50) may actually be giving us our first real look at Madame Gothel / Mother Gothel.
Finally, there’s Rapunzel’s entry into a new line of Disney Princess dolls from Disney Store — the Singing Doll collection which are fully articulated dolls of many of the princesses with all new a cappella recordings from the original voice artists (when possible) created exclusively for the dolls. We’ll delve more into this when we address Disney Princesses directly, so for now we’ll just note that this particular doll features Mandy Moore singing ‘When Will My Life Begin?’
On that same note (brilliant segue), we’ll just touch upon one of the Tangled products from JAKKS Pacific for now and that’s the 18″ tall Rapunzel from the all new Princess & Me collection. She has a distinctive look and we’ll soon learn why when we explore the Disney Princess collections further.
Most of Mattel’s products have already been previewed during the International Toy Fair back in February, so we suggest you take a few moments to check them out here in case you missed it. Of course Mattel has a lot more to offer for the film than what was on display here and one of those items I was looking forward to revisit is Flynn’s horse Maximus. However, since he was unavailable during the holiday tour, I just want to point out that he represents a first for Mattel — his head can actually rock back and forth as he ‘trots,’ adding to realistic play.
