I was technically an adult when Disney’s Aladdin first came out, but I felt like a little girl again the first time I watched this magical tale. And again when I showed it to my daughters for the first time many years later! Jasmine is more than just a pretty princess. In a time when she might be expected to be a passive prize handed over to the suitor of her father’s choosing, Jasmine is strong, courageous, intelligent, and independent. She knows her own mind, and she has a pet tiger! Those are qualities we’d all love our daughters to have. (Except maybe for the tiger – imagine the litter box!)
Meet Hasbro’s Disney Princess Royal Shimmer Jasmine Doll!
Of all the Disney Princess dolls we’ve reviewed so far, Jasmine’s face mould bears the closest resemblance to her movie counterpart with her large brown eyes, long black hair, warm skin tone, high cheek bones, and long classic nose. She wears removable earrings, tiara, and necklace, a glittery one piece outfit with aqua top and harem pants, and translucent blue shoes with cute little upturned tips.
Jasmine is already fitting in with our other dolls. She likes to relax on the chaise lounge when she visits with Rapunzel at Queen Elsa’s castle.
We also received this Disney Princess Little Kingdom Jasmine’s Golden Vanity Set. Like other Little Kingdom dolls, the doll is about 3″ tall. The vanity and ottoman set comes with two animal friends – everyone’s favourite monkey, Abu, and a white bird on a golden stand – along with a cardboard background, three paper decorations, three snap-ins, and a lamp.
Jasmine’s outfit is made up of three pieces (bodice, peplum, and skirt) and can be mixed and matched between all the other Little Kingdom dolls. The whole thing comes in a little case perfect for keeping all the tiny pieces in one place.
My girls love playing with their Little Kingdom dolls, but as I’ve mentioned in previous reviews, those snap-ins are really small and likely to get lost over time. Just accept it. On this doll, the tiara seems to fit fairly firmly, so I’m hopeful my girls can keep track of it for a while.
Royal Dreams Castle
But where will all the Disney Princesses live? Right here in the brand new Disney Princess Royal Dreams Castle!
Any little girl would be ecstatic to find this magical castle under the tree! At over three feet tall, it has four rooms and comes with a bed, bathtub, bench, stove, 15 small accessories, and a magic carpet elevator ride for Jasmine that your child can manually move up and down one of the pillars.
There’s room for several 12″ dolls and the castle has different areas and details inspired by each Disney Princess. The bedroom has Sleeping Beauty’s bed, a cherry blossom chest of drawers for Mulan, and a friendly frog for Tiana. There’s a bathtub for Ariel to splash around in, a library nook for Belle, a cozy kitchen for Snow White, that magic carpet for Jasmine, and Rapunzel’stower up top. Merida’s three little brother bears are peeking through an upstairs window. Can you find Cinderella’s glass slippers?
Be sure to set aside enough time to put this castle together and put all the decals on before Christmas morning. It should take around 45 minutes (or one Grey’s Anatomy rerun if you’re me right now).
