Our Favorite Fairy Tale Characters Grew Up to Be Parents

Thanks to Shannon Hale's book series Ever After High, we know now that our favorite fairytale characters grew up to be parents. In this book series, we get to find out what happened to our favorite fairy tale characters such as Sleeping Beauty, the Mad Hatter, the Evil Queen, and many others. Even better, we get to meet these fairy tale characters teenage children.

Ever After High is Set in Fairytale World

Ever After High is a boarding school set in Fairytale World. When each child enrolls at Ever After High, he or she is expected to do so to fulfill their destiny. To fulfill their destiny, each child must agree to carryout their parent's story. Most children are happy to do this, but others are not. The main antagonist of the series is Raven Queen.

Raven is the teenage daughter of the Evil Queen. According to Raven's destiny, she is to become the next Evil Queen, but she doesn't know if that is what she wants too. The other main character is Apple White. Apple is the daughter of Snow White and happy to carry on her mother's story. However, Apple's story and possibly her existence rely heavily on whether Raven Queen fulfills her destiny.

Our Favorite Fairytale Characters are Teachers at Ever After High

While my daughter originally introduced me to the Ever After books and webseries, I am now obsessed with the books and webisodes as well. Why, am I obsessed with these books? Many of my favorite characters are teachers at Ever After High and the students at the boarding school are their children. Some characters that adults will instantly recognize from the series are:

  • The Gingerbread Man
  • Jack B. Nimble
  • Pied Piper
  • Cinderella's Step-Sisters
  • Maid Marian
  • Momma and Papa Bear (from Goldilocks and the Three Bears)

Other Adult Fairytale Characters that Appear in Ever After High

Many other fairytale characters also appear in Ever After High as parents. My favorite parents of Ever After High students include:

  • Mad Hatter
  • Evil Queen
  • Red Riding Hood
  • Queen of Hearts
  • Cheshire Cat

Students at Ever After High

When students arrive at Ever After High, they already know what is expected of them. The main goal is to further their story...the story of their parents. While many of the fairytale characters are happy to do exactly what is expected of them, others are not. The most important characters in Ever After High are:

  • Raven Queen
  • Apple White

Ever After High Books and Web Series

Kids and adults of all ages can enjoy extending their favorite fairy tales by reading the Ever After book series, and watching the web series on YouTube or Netflix. My daughter enjoys reading the books and watching the series on her iPad or TV too.

Ever After High has Their Own YouTube Channel

Ever After High is the Companion Line to Monster High

If you think the characters from Ever After High look familiar, you aren't going crazy! In fact, Ever After High is a companion line to Monster High.

The two lines share many commonalities including following the children of fairytale protagonists in high school. The biggest difference between the two series is that Monster High follows the lives of fairy tale monsters' children and Ever After High follows lives of children who are not monsters.

Ever After High Toys, Games, and Costumes

Just like Monster High, Ever After High is quickly growing into a franchise that daughters and moms love. In addition to reading what happened to your favorite fairy tale characters in the Ever After High books, you can also bring home the fairy tale magic through toys, games, and costumes.

In fact, I predict that Ever After High costumes will quickly replace the traditional Cinderella, Belle, and Sleeping Beauty costumes that little girls have in their trunks today.
