Our Picks for the Best Disney Princess Toys

Best Dolls

Disney Princess Royal Collection

These beautiful dolls look just like the on-screen originals.

Pros: When a doll’s features and looks match its character on the screen, it makes it extra special. All 12 of these Disney princess dolls look very accurate to their characters on screen, which both parents and children can appreciate. Each doll has a painted-on bodice with crowns, bottoms, and shoes as interchangeable accessories. You get Tiana, Mulan, Merida, Belle, Pocahontas, Aurora, Cinderella, Moana, Rapunzel, Jasmine, Ariel, and Snow White in this set.

Cons: Some of the dolls have thin or sparse hair. The set does not include Elsa or Anna from Frozen, which are two very popular Disney characters.

Bottom Line: This set of 12 Disney princesses makes for an amazing gift. Whether you plan to give all of them at once to one child or split them up to share, it’s a cost-effective way for these 12 princesses to be enjoyed and celebrated. With just enough accessories but not too much to keep track of, there’s so much for your child to enjoy! It’s easy to recognize the princesses since they’re well depicted.

 

Best Dress-Up Set

Melissa & Doug Disney Cinderella Magnetic Dress-Up Set

Let your child enjoy dressing up a doll with ease instead of frustration.

Pros: Let your child dress one of her favorite characters without the frustration of fumbling with hooks and buttons. This magnetic Cinderella dress-up doll lets your little one change her clothes with ease. This brand is trusted for its quality and durability, even when it comes to the special touch of young ones. The magnets cover the entire piece of clothing for better sticking and safer play. You can also choose from three other Disney princesses if you don’t want Cinderella.

Cons: Some of the pieces are small, which can pose choking hazards if your child still likes to put things into their mouth. The multiple pieces also can be misplaced easily.

Bottom Line: These magnetic dress-up dolls are a perfect solution to give your little one the dress-up experience without frustration and fumbling. The back of each piece is magnetic, which makes it a safer option for play. The trusted quality and durability of the brand make it just right for the sometimes hard play of toddlers.

 

Best Dollhouse

Disney Princess Ultimate Celebration Castle

Give your dolls a place to live and play with this magnificent castle.

Pros: This is the ultimate princess castle. In addition to the towering castle spindles and spiral staircase, it comes with furniture and accessories, so dolls have everything they need to feel at home. Let the imaginative play soar with three stories and six rooms. The castle stands 4 feet tall to accommodate plenty of activities for the dolls. It also features a light and music option for even more fun.

Cons: It takes a lot of effort and attention to assemble the castle. There are so many tiny pieces to keep track of during assembly and play.

Bottom Line: While this magical castle takes a decent amount of time and effort to put together, it can inspire hours of play for your child. The princesses are sold separately, but this castle can accommodate a full-size doll, like those included in our first pick, in addition to the smaller figurines. No matter what size doll your child likes to use, her princesses will be fully entertained and feel at home with luxury furniture and accessories, plus a light and music show in her celebration castle.

 

Best Plush Toy

Disney Princess So Sweet Princess Moana

These plush dolls make a better bedtime cuddle than a traditional doll.

Pros: If your little one loves her princess so much she wants to cuddle with her at bedtime, this is a good pick. The doll measures 12 inches, which makes it easily portable and a good size for hugging. Choose between three princesses, complete with character details using soft fabrics.

Cons: While the dolls are recognizable, the facial details differ from the characters on TV. It’s recommended that this doll is only spot cleaned instead of used in the washing machine.

Bottom Line: Choose between Rapunzel, Ariel, or Moana plush dolls your kiddo can carry around everywhere. Even though their facial features may be a little bit different than the characters in the films, the soft details of the princess’s dresses and jewelry help make them recognized and adored by your little one.

 

Best Jewelry Set

Tara Toys Disney Princess Necklace Activity Set

Make your own princess necklaces and share with your friends.

Pros: This fun jewelry set allows your girls or their friends to create their own necklaces with their favorite princesses. The kit includes four silicone necklaces, five character charms, and 150 beads, so they can make themselves a necklace and give others to their friends. The necklace snaps together rather than having to be tied together, which makes it easy for children to do independently.

Cons: The jewelry set includes small pieces, which can become a safety issue if it’s used around small children who still put things into their mouths.

Bottom Line: Let your kids design their own princess necklaces. They’ll be able to wear their favorite princess around their neck while discovering their own creativity and style. With five charms and plenty of beads, your children can make necklaces to share with their friends or have fun redesigning necklaces whenever they’d like.
