This is the first part of my three-part blog series talking about the new Disney Princess American Girl dolls in-depth, focusing on the Cinderella doll.
Cinderella is from the 1950 Disney movie Cinderella, which is based on the ancient fairy tale of the same name. In the movie, Cinderella is a young orphan living with her evil stepmother and stepsisters, who is forced to do their chores. When she finds out about a royal ball her stepmother is attending, she is driven to go, only to have her fortunes reversed by her stepmother - and reversed again by a fairy godmother. The Cinderella story has spawned numerous direct-to-video spinoffs and a live action movie that released in 2015.
American Girl describes Cinderella as "kind and courageous" and as someone who "extends her warm nature to everyone she meets".
The Cinderella doll has the Josefina mold, light skin, blue eyes that open and close, and blonde hair styled in a high bun with a blue headband and curled, sideswept bangs, and blue rhinestone earrings in her pierced ears. She has a soft cotton body, and her movable head and limbs are made of smooth vinyl. She arrives in a blue satin ball gown featuring a sweetheart illusion neckline, a bodice with braided trim and a silver foil print, white organza puff sleeves, and a white peplum overskirt with silver glitter detail, as well as a pair of glittery “glass slippers” with kitten heels and rhinestones at the toes, a black satin ribbon choker necklace, a pair of white elbow-length gloves and underwear.
In addition to her regular outfit, 2 other outfits are available - her Day Dress and Original Ball Gown.
