Cinderella

Posted by helen on April 28, 2015

 Remember? these Frozen dolls !  Again,  I missed the “Doll of the Year” —Disney’s special edition, limited to 500 units worldwide “Wedding Day Cinderella 17″ Doll”.  She’s sculpted in the likeness of the Actress Lily James, who played the title role in the new Live Action Movie “Cinderella”. the doll was officially priced at $500 and released on Friday, March  13, 2015.  Before she went on sale, I read comments from many upset Disney collectors “why is she $500? why does she have to be so expensive?”

why is she $500? as she is a collectible item, the price is based on “customers’ value”, not its production cost,  that is—Disney believed there would be more than 500 customers who value her as a $500 doll and  pay $500 for her, so $500 is her price.

Of Course Disney was right. On the next day, her price soared to $2000 on eBay,  Sellers can  still sell her for more than $1,700 if they are lucky.

Limited Edition Cinderella Wedding Doll

I don’t think I’d pay $500 or $1999  for a doll with such a big bobbing head.  The world is full of better things—Here comes my $24.99 “Wedding Day” Cinderella  by Mattel,   she is prettier,  I enjoy  her more:

I have the “Royal Ball” Cinderella, too:

      Thanks, Sheri. I made her Pink Dress for our Club Meeting, this month’s theme is “a Royal Celebration”, its all about princesses and fantasy. so she went to meet other Princesses… here is she, with the Frog Princess:

    I agree the Barbie version looks prettier. I would not pay for a $500 doll that has a humongous head for a very skinny body. I would buy the Disney version instead and put her head on an articulated body.
