    All 10 Animators' Dolls Back Online!

    Now if you do a search on animators you will see all 10 dolls of the Animators' Collection, and they are all available for purchase. However, on the Animators' Collection page itself, only 7 of them are shown. Good to see all of the missing dolls back!

    20% Off US Disney Store Purchases Instore and Online

    A bit off topic, but I didn't want to create a new thread just for this.

    I got an email from the Disney Store (US) this morning about 20% off for your purchases online OR instore from today, November 11, 2011 through Tuesday, November 15, 2011. There is a printable coupon for use instore, or use the code DISNEYPAL online. Looks like the coupon, or the promo code, can be used only one time (i.e. for one order), per Guest. Although I'm not absolutely sure about that, as the wording in the fine print is a little ambiguous. In addition, if you purchase more than $75 on a single order online, the shipping is free. Apparently, you don't have to add the code SHIPTODAY to get the free shipping. So that makes things simpler.

    Also, if you bring a Tshirt to recycle to a Disney Store, there is another coupon for 25% off the purchases you make instore at one time.

    This offer is also promoted on the main page of the Disney Store (US).

    Animators' Ariel Doll In Rapunzel's Dress

    Disney Animators' Ariel comes in a mermaid tail, but underneath has regular legs and feet just like the other toddler dolls. So to show what she might look like as a human toddler, I have dressed her in Animators' Rapunzel's dress. She is left in her bare feet, just as is Rapunzel. Also, the dress allows her to sit down, which her mermaid tail made impossible. Here are some photos. Click any photo or the links to see more and larger photos:

    Disney Animators' Rapunzel as a Mermaid

    Okay, since Ariel borrowed Rapunzel's dress so she can pose as a human, it's only natural that Rapunzel put on Ariel's outfit so she can be a mermaid. One problem is that Rapunzel's painted on underwear is larger than Ariel's, so the tail has to be pulled up higher to cover it up. There wasn't enough leaway or give in the upper part of the tail, so the velcro fastener in the back didn't quite mate properly all the way. Other than that, Rapunzel looked great in Ariel's outfit, and is what I imagine a very young Daryl Hannah might have looked like as a toddler Madison in Splash. Here's a few photos of Rapunzel as a Little Mermaid:

    Wow awesome photos DRJ1828!!! Love seeing Ariel in human form too.
    I bought Ariel like a month or do ago and I have a little sister who I couldn't resist let play with her lol. Needless to say she is in desperate need of a hair brushing lol. So my Ariel's hair is so not as pristine as yours...but I just have a super hard time saying no to her I mean she won't even be 2 until jan.

    Thanks!

    Thanks a bunch! Maybe you should get another Ariel for yourself. Brushing out Ariel's hair is a big job - much more time consuming than for Rapunzel. Even though Rapunzel has longer hair, Ariel has much more hair, and it's curly. Tangle city! LOL. Ariel with tangled hair reminds me of the Feral Child in the Road Warrior or Newt in Aliens.

    Disney Tangled Fairytale Friend Rapunzel 38'' Doll

    I just got a used 38'' Disney Rapunzel doll. She was released by Disney in conjunction with the release of Tangled in late 2010. She is called the Disney Tangled Fairytale Friend on the original packaging. She is also called by some resellers as the Rapunzel My Size Doll, although she is not actually in the Mattel My Size Doll series. There was actually a Mattel Rapunzel My Size Doll made in the 1990's that has a very different look than the Disney doll. She can stand on her own on a flat surface, such as on a hardwood or linoleum floor, and is very stable. Her dress is a good likeness of the one from the movie, and is very similar to the Rapunzel dress sold by Disney for small girls. Her hair is very fine and soft and straight and about 20'' long. Her hair was braided by the previous owner. She also comes with a light up plastic flower hairclip, and cloth slippers.

    Here are some pictures of her free standing on a hardwood floor:

    Thanks! I hope the UK Disney Store keeps to its schedule and makes them available in mid-December for you. That is really cutting it close to Christmas, especially if you order it online.
