Disney's princesses are beloved by girls from an early age. The movies are legendary and introduce these characters that girls look up to and adore. Whether her favorite is the Little Mermaid, Jasmine, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel, Tiana, Belle or otherwise there's a great princess themed toy that she's sure to love.

Dress Up Costumes
My daughter loves dressing up probably more than any other activity. Every time I turn around she's wearing a different costume and loves to pretend to actually be that character. She likes to be addressed as the princess who's outfit she's wearing. What's great about dress up costumes is they can also be used for Halloween costumes or vice versa. Plus dress up offers a variety of benefits for a child from working through feelings, using their imaginations and fostering creativity and practicing life skills.
