Disney dolls dumped already

YOU may remember our three-year-old daughter Bonnie had just one request for Father Christmas: Disney Dolls.

Indeed, the Big Man came up with the goods and came down the chimney not only with Rapunzel, but Snow White, Aurora (Sleeping Beauty to you) and Pocahontas too. These ladies join Jasmine (from Aladdin) and Cinderella in Bonnie’s growing gang of plastic pals.

Needless to say, she played with them for about 20 minutes on Christmas Day. Since then they’ve lost half their outfits (at least one plastic shoe has been vacuumed) and been left in a heap on her bedroom floor, while she’s been swanning about like royalty in a Rapunzel dressing-up outfit, bought by her very own Fairy Godmother, which she refuses to take off.

I had intended to sanction Disney princesses, seeing as their only role seems to be to find a husband and wear nice frocks, but, like not allowing dummies and refusing an epidural, that idea went out of the window after about an hour.

I did add Pocahontas to the mix but couldn’t find Mulan anywhere. Should we be worried about giving our daughters princess dolls, or is it just a harmless phase of girl development? (See Lisa Simpson Vs Malibu Stacy)

Anyway, at least my Barbie ban is still intact. For now. . .
