Belle-Disney Designer Collection Premiere Series Doll

Posted by helen on November 17, 2018

The premiere series of Disney Designer Dolls showcases the Disney Princesses dressed in gowns inspired by the runways and red carpets during the year of their theatrical debut. The collection features Snow White, Cinderella, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, and Tiana.
The edition sizes of these dolls are ranged from 4,000 to 4,500. retail price: $109.99, release dates were every Saturday from October 6 to November 10 online at 12:00 am PST. the dolls were also available at retail locations using an in-store lottery.

These princesses really played hard to get. all of them were sold out in less than 5 minutes. Disney fans fought for them just like Barbie collectors used to fight for Platinum Barbie.

I did not plan to collect any of them, but after watching the slow sales of Mattel’s Platinum YSL dolls, I got so bored, and decided to catch the last princess in the series: Belle.

I’m not familiar with Disney store’s website, it would be very hard for me to compete with its veteran shoppers. I searched the links to the 5 previously sold dolls, then I put together all the links and stock numbers, it took a little guesswork for me to figure out what the direct link to Belle should be, I typed it in my address bar and hit “enter”, there she was! I grabbed her quick & easy without making a sound.

She arrived before the big snowstorm hit.

The box has beautiful graphic design.

The magic door to a Fantasy Kingdom is about to open:

Premiere Night:

A Closer look:

The overskirt is detachable:

her dress is of very low quality, simply constructed, made of cheap satin with rough textures. Unfitted bodice bothers me the most, the bust darts don’t sit right, the portrait collar looks messy –it didn’t honor the original design.

The package is weighted (including 2 outer boxes) 5 Lbs, 2 lbs less than YSl Barbie.

So this is the end of my little fantasy. Snow White is my Favorite in this series, her gown kind reminds me of Barbie’s Hope Diamond gown
