    Very disappointed that Disney is making these changes to the princess lineup! Belle looks awful, so does Aurora :( I will not be buying anything with the new looks on them on our trip in October!

    I'm okay with the updated hairstyles and dresses, but the facial changes are weird. They look like they've had bad plastic surgery.

    What disturbs me is the poses. They are highly sexualized, hips jutted out, posterior out, looking over their shoulder. They all look like they are posing for maxim, and hey all have open mouths, with slightly shaded eyes, an obvious invitation. Thank goodness my daughter does not like the princesses, I would never allow any of this in my house..along with brats, monster high dolls, etc.

    This is crazy! Belle now looks like Meg from Hercules! I understand trying to make them look a little SMEXY (that's my 13 yo's word for looking sexy and messed up). Maybe they're trying to capture the teenagers with a sexier look!

    Just checked these out in DS.com. Their faces are awful, they look unnatural. Glad I have all the dolls from the Target set and previous DS.com ones.

    Exactly!!! They look way too sensual and seductive. Not the wholesome, natural beauties they should be. I am kind of shocked Disney would do this to beloved timeless characters.

    Looks fake.

    Congrats Disney, you've designed a doll that looks like a fake rip-off of your own character.

    At leat make the dress the correct colour?

    My niece received some pajamas with the new Cinderella. I was shocked at how she looked. I guess I prefer the vintage Cindy.

    I don't care much for most of the make version. Cindy got the worse although Belle's hair throws me. And Jasmine's hair with the one curl sticking out is driving me crazy. But I will say this, Ariel is great! I love her green dress, her hair is gorgeous, and her earrings are so her! That is the only one that they got right! I'm so glad she's no longer in that pink dress! We've never seen her at Disney in pink, she's either been a mermaid or she's been in the green dress. Green is the better color for her! But a big thumbs down the to rest of them!

    So THAT'S why the Disney Princess dolls were marked down over the summer -- they must have been clearing out the older style dolls to make room for the new ones. Glad I stocked up then!

    Ariel is the only one that looks like herself, really. I don't mind the new designs if it was for a line, but as a whole revamp of the characters? Not really a fan. Especially if the changes will be reflected in the face characters at Disney. No need to mess with a good thing, in this case.

    I actually really like the new designs, the makeup it's a little exaggerated but I like their new hair, plus I believe the previous hairstyles were a little outdated. With this new hairstyle more girls can identify with it, and I'm sure the makeup is to also attract older girls that otherwise might not feel identified with the brand. It's sad to see things go yes, but as someone said longevity comes for changing and adapting to the request of the core consumers.

    I'm not sure i WANT my daughter to "identify" with young ladies who wear too much make-up and affect coquettish, overly-sexualized posture.
    Are we to expect "duck lips" in the merchandising soon? How about dolls with duck lips and booty-pop poses? "everyone" is doing it... :rolleyes:

    If you ask me, her make up looks a little less done than the old version.. The eyes are not so dark and sultry and her lip stick is more neutral. So I'm wondering if maybe I'm seeing a different "new" version. They've also tuned down the chest area a bit. It is different, but everything changes.. Even the mouse who started it all.

    Cinderella always looked like a mature woman to me..

    I thought I was the only one with this perception. I don't love it but I certainly don't hate it. But then, she might be the princess that appeals to me the least. (gasp!!)

    I don't see the over sexualized posture, and I don't think a 12 year old girl would have that kind of thought process either. Also, I am not defending Disney nor I am against Disney, but sorry, a brand, Disney or not Disney needs to keep up with their consumers and offer what they want and desire from the brand to reach consumer satisfaction (and remember, you (us/adults/parents) are not the direct target, the direct target are girls, they don't see a princess and think "oh i want to buy this princess because her posture is sexual".

    Again, not trying to say your opinion is wrong, but Disney needs to reach the newer generations, and use what appeals to them, or else the brand would become extinct.

    You as a parent have the final say in what your kids use or not, but IMHO I don't see the over sexualization of the princesses.

    1) new Mickey Mouse look vs old:
    Atleast the new version doesn't look like something out of a teen magazine; complete with a "come hither" look (imagine if MM looked like the Bieber):eek:



    2) The new Univ of Wisconsin football uniform look / Univ of Nebraska new football uniform look, etc.
    Yes, change is always just around the corner but alteast it isn's sexually suggestive like say the uniforms being tight around the rear end, etc.:eek:




    3) The new princess look??
    With all due respect, they now all look like ladys of the evening.:rolleyes1
    (and to think, Walt even had Annette 'tone down' her upper chest area to therefore maintain that kid look & NOT what she was growing up into during filming of the MM show:

    A young lady.


    How I wish we had people like that in the ink & paint department.;)



    I mean,
    I understand clearly that change is always here BUT.........
    OMG - atleast Jessica Rabbit was meant to be that way -



    In short:
    IMHO, Disney has turned these princesses into objects.
    Not a smart move.:headache:

    Personally I don't think they're too bad. Probably because I read this thread first and was expecting a proper s&m stripper bunch of princesses. Although I do wonder what Cinderella has got around the neck and why, they look a lot less shocking than I expected.

    Oh and they're way too thin, and that's coming from someone who's been very slim her whole life.

    I like the new designs, but agree that the makeup is a little exaggerated. Their new hair is very nice, and old hairstyles were outdated. Changing for the consumers is a wise decision.
