Disney has released an as part of the Animators Collection. This is the second male doll released in the collection. The first male doll released in 2014 was Kristoff based on the character from the Frozen movie. Like Kristoff, the Aladdin doll features sculpted hair. Aladdin doll
Another addition to the Animators Collection is a mini doll set featuring the Animators dolls in a 5 inch size. This collection features 15 dolls previously released in the series. This collection does not include a likeness of the new Aladdin doll.
About Disney's Animators Collection
When the Disney Animators' Collection first emerged the line featured 10 Disney Princess dolls: Jasmine, Pocahontas, Tiana, Belle, Mulan, Ariel, Rapunzel, Aurora, Snow White and Cinderella. Two of Disney's top animators, Mark Henn and Glen Keane, designed these dolls to reflect what the animated characters would look like as toddlers. These dolls stand 16 inches tall and are usually paired with a plush friend.
Eventually more character dolls were added to the Animators Collection; including Merida from Brave and Tinker Bell. In 2014 Queen Elsa and Princess Anna became part of the collection. Disney paired these royal sisters with the loveable Kristoff. This marks the first time a male character has been introduced to the line. Perhaps we can look forward to seeing more male characters appear in the line in the future.
Aladdin Doll Review
Kristoff - First Boy in the Animator Collection
Frozen Kristoff 16" Doll
I recently purchased from the Disney store in my area. He is to be a Christmas gift for my niece how already has many Disney Animator dolls. She really did not need Elsa or Anna as she already had the My First Disney Princess version of the two sisters; though, admittedly I prefer the animators version of Anna and Elsa. Kristoff
What is unique about Kristoff is that he is the first male doll introduced to the princess doll line. His hair is sculpted plastic rather than the synthetic hair the Princess dolls.
I love how they reimagined toddler Kristoff from his face down to the details of his embroidered collar. When I picked up the mountaineer I did not realize he came with a plush figure like the rest of the dolls in the Disney Animators' Collection doll. I am excited to learn that Kristoff comes with his pal Sven. The reindeer is plush with embroidered details.
Animators Behind the Frozen Dolls
There are three Disney Animators who were involved with designing Kristoff, Anna and Elsa; they include, Bill Schwab, Tony Smeed and Jin Kim. Each of these animators worked on the animated film Frozen. Schwab was the character design supervisor for the film. Smeed was the animator supervisor for Frozen and Kim was an integral part in bringing the characters to the big screen.
Merida - 16" Brave Merida Doll
The Disney Store has produced a Princess Merida doll based on the film Brave. The Animator Merida doll sits 16" tall. It has similar features of the current Disney Animators Collection. That is to say, the toddler princess doll has imagination, big expressive eyes and humor.
The dolls design was influenced by Matt Nolte who worked as the art director on the Disney Pixar film Brave.
About These Disney Toddler Dolls
Disney Animators Collection Dolls
From the animators who brought us some of our favorite Disney Princesses to the silver screen comes the Disney Animators' Collection. The creation of the doll collection was over seen by Mark Henn and Glen Keane. It is their interpretations of what our favorite Princesses would look like as a toddlers. These dolls are cute, high in demand, and come in a view able collector's box decorated with animated sketches by the animators. Each doll is sold separately and comes with a plush embroidered friend. These Disney Princess dolls are based on characters from top animated Disney movies. What makes them unique are the thought and details that can be seen in their faces. Dolls are for ages 3+.
Snow White, Pocahontas, Ariel, Cinderella & Jasmine
I know a little girl who is luckily to own all of these five Disney Princesses. The latest one she received is Cinderella. She is now covered in pixie dust as my niece decorated her for her marriage to Prince Charming (yes, Charming is sparkling too). Cinderella is her favorite of the doll right now and receives the most play. She enjoys chasing me (her aunt) around with Cinderella's plush friend Jaq because Auntie does not like mice.
My personal favorite is Snow White. Her short curls coupled with her expression is adorable.

Aurora, Mulan & Tiana
All of these Disney Princesses are beautiful but if I had to choose I would pick Mulan. I love the pig tails, detailed face and cute pink outfit with shoes. It could be just me but she always seems sad to me and I always want to give her a hug.

Belle & Rapunzel
Belle and Rapunzel are the two dolls of the collection that we do not have. Instead my niece has the My First Disney Princess versions of these dolls; though, she has been eying up the blue dress Belle lately.
Belle has undergone a costume change since the collection of dolls was first released. The adorable blue and white dress has been replaced with a gold organza dress which reminds collectors of the iconic one the character wore in the movie when dancing with Beast.
When the two dresses are compared I prefer the demure blue and white one which would seem to suit a younger Belle living with her inventor father. What do you think?
