    Glad they are restocking them for you guys across the pond, very promising that they have plenty of stock. That won't stop me jumping on the ones I want when they arrive over here though, just in case!

    Gee, that was quick - they only lasted one or two days! Disney needs to do a better job restocking these dolls. Good thing these aren't limited edition, so we can expect them to be back in stock before too long. We hope. :)

    Went to my store yesterday and got the last Rapunzel from a shipment they received that morning. She lasted 2 1/2 hours in the store. Crazy how they keep selling out online and Rapunzel and Pocahontas haven't been up for ages. I wonder what will happen to them during the actual holiday season, if their popularity will increase and it will be even crazier or if the demand will slow down eventually.

    Good to know that the stores are continuing to restock the Animators' dolls, including Rapunzel. On the other hand, the online site is now down to 5 dolls - Belle just sold out. :(

    Belle spotted at Disney Store at Galleria at Tyler in Riverside, CA

    They had quite a few Belle, Rapunzel, Tiana, Cinderella, Aurora, Jasmine, Mulan at the DS in the Galleria at Tyler in Riverside when I went on Tuesday night to pick up Cindy, Rapunzel and Aurora. They're expecting Ariel and Snow White shipment so hopefully I'll be able to add Ariel soon.

    New video for Animators' Collection

    There is no change to the doll lineup on US Disney Store page for the Disney Animators' Collection, but I just noticed that they have changed the promo video for it on the banner for the page. It now focuses on the two Disney animators, Glen Keane and Mark Henn, who worked with the Disney Store to create the new dolls. They discuss the design process for the dolls, and more of the design sketches are shown.

    Animators' Ariel Doll with other versions

    I just got the Animators' Ariel doll, so here are some photos of her, together with the Designer and Singing Ariel dolls, both boxed and deboxed! I got Animators' Ariel online, so didn't get to choose her. In the box her hair was a bit messy, but otherwise the box and her were delivered in perfect condition. I think she is much prettier in person than in her promo photos.

    All three Ariels are less stable free standing than their Snow White counterparts, so I had to prop up Designer Ariel and Singing Ariel from behind. And while Animators' Ariel does stand up on her own, it was difficult to find the right position for her barefoot feet so she would be balanced. They all fell over many times while I was posing them to take their photos! :wiggle:

    The US Disney Store website is so funny! Belle was briefly on the Disney Animators' Collection page earlier today, but now she is gone. But she is still available for purchase if you go directly to her page. And she still appears in the most popular item lists. But even though Tiana is still listed on the Animators' page, she is in fact sold out.

    Toddler Ariel With Hair Freed

    I've totally freed her hair and brushed it out, and also got some photos of her on her side and from behind.

    So is the BF sale for the Disney Store 25% off anything for regular customers?

    TDS is #2 on my BF list I believe. I would like to get some ornaments and more of these dolls. Any info you can share would be helpful, thanks.

    No, for the CM's, but I'm sure we will have big savings on a lot of stuff . I saw the gorgeous Rapunzel soft blanket . I know I'm buying me that . Our regular CM discount is 20% and we are getting the extra for working overnight shift .

    And then there were four...

    Tiana SOLD OUT on Saturday (October 29), and Mulan has just SOLD OUT today. That leaves just four Animators' dolls for sale online: Belle, Cinderella, Aurora, and Jasmine. Fortunately, you should still be able to buy most or all of the collection at your local US Disney Store.

    Thanks Story! I totally forgot that I had a blue blanket that I could use as background, to simulate Ariel being underwater. Doh! I will post photos of that shortly.
