This is the final part of my three-part blog series talking about the new Disney Princess American Girl dolls in-depth, focusing on the Tiana doll.
Tiana is from the 2009 Disney movie The Princess and the Frog, which is loosely based on the
2002 novel The Frog Princess and the German folk tale The Frog Prince. In the movie, Tiana is a hardworking waitress with dreams to open a restaurant of her own, who's life takes a turn after she kisses a frog prince and becomes a frog herself, racing to become human again - and falling in love along the way. The Princess and the Frog story has spawned the creation of several theme park attractions, including the retheming of the beloved Splash Mountain ride at Disney World, and a series that will premiere on Disney Plus soon.
American Girl describes Tiana as "focused and driven" and as someone who is "determined to make her dream of opening her own restaurant come true through a mix of magic and hard work.".
The Tiana doll has the Claudie mold, dark skin, brown eyes that open and close, and curly black hair styled in a high bun with face-framing tendrils and a glittery green headband with yellow organza and satin petals. She has a soft cotton body, and her movable head and limbs are made of smooth vinyl. She arrives in a green-and-yellow dress featuring a yellow organza illusion neckline, satin petal-shaped bodice, layered green satin overskirt, yellow organza skirt with petal hem, and yellow satin underskirt. A yellow flower at the waist with a rhinestone center and embroidered vine details complete the look. She also arrives in a golden-metal chain necklace with green gemstones, a pair of yellow elbow-length gloves, a pair of green open-toe kitten heels with golden binding, and underwear.
In addition to her regular outfit, 2 other outfits are available - her Work Dress and Evening Star Dress.
