Rumours began to swirl around the internet back in March 2013 with Designer Doll artist, Steven Thompson, hinting on his website that there was something in the works for this year, especially with the D23 Convention happening. Then came the rumour from sources that unnamed Cast Members found out that the new series would be Designer Couples - this rumour turned out to be true! Instead of going forward with new characters, Disney revisited original Princesses, pairing them up with their Princes. The Princes had been the only other characters definitely wanted in a Designer line, but due to the nature of the series, and that female characters are usually more favoured as dolls, it didn't seem to be a possibility. This was a very clever idea by Disney to get the princes included, with five dolls sets completing the series - Snow White & The Prince, Ariel & Prince Eric, Jasmine & Aladdin, Belle & The Beast and Rapunzel & Flynn Rider.
Gerald Mendez and Jessica Fuchs were on hand at the D23 Convention to introduce the line with the Designer series originator Steve Thompson credited as doing the sketchwork. The Princesses and Princes wear clothes much like the ones they wear on screen, but with some newer embellishments. There is embroidery work on each gown and some of the Princesses show some changes like Ariel's exposed shoulders and Snow White's long hair. The Disney Fairytale Designer Collection was carefully crafted by artists inspired by Disney's true heritage of the fairytale, beginning with the 1937 classic, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Celebrating the magical moment in the fairytale when the couples fall in love, five Disney Princesses and their beaus have been reimagined in exquisite detail with these limited edition dolls. Brought to life with thoughtful attention, they uniquely capture the essence of the fairytale couple, creating a one of a kind set that will be a treasured keepsake of collectors, Disney fans, and every princess at heart! The Disney Fairytale Designer Limited Edition Doll Sets include Snow White and the Prince; Rapunzel and Flynn Rider; Jasmine and Aladdin; Belle and the Beast; and Ariel and Eric, all brought to life with careful attention. Featuring stunning details, such as satin gowns with subtle ornate prints, embroidered bodices, golden buttons and rhinestone accents, each set is presented in a special keepsake display case with intricate details on the base, including a golden plate with the name of the specific Disney Princess and her partner.
