I'm not sure what pissed me off the most - that it's not either Pascal or Maximus for Rapunzel OR that Treasure isn't even an aquatic pet. HOW CAN SHE SURVIVE in that Atlantian kingdom? AND WHY IS BELLE'S PET NOT MAURICE?! AND NO RAJAH? This is such an obvious money grabbing thing and I am NOT amused Disney. I know you play fast & loose with continuity for the DPs all the time but this one is just a bit TOO much.

...Why would Belle's pet be named for her dad and not Sultan, the footstool/dog ?

not only do they try to copy my littles pet shop with this, but look at their "flanks".. my little pony anyone? if i were hasbro, i would try to sue disney for this. this is a clear attempt to trick children into believing, that these come from other franchises! not cool disney..not cool..

Disney - sucking the money out of parents, since the making of the princess line

it just gets kinda low... good thing i already stopped buying anything from them. if i want some disney merch., i go to ebay and shop second hand..

Lawsuits are expensive so companies are not going to waste their money on vague similarities. Really kids are smart enough to know that these are not part of any other franchise, especially since we all know Disney is going to do everything to make it clear that these are Princess related.

that was actually my first thought 'DO THEY HAVE CUTIE MARKS??'

No just JUST NO >8C Stop it Disney, you don't need to be so money hungry. ENOUGH just leave the princesses alone.

The fact that Ariel's animal is a cat but is underwater shows absolutely no thought, time or effort in this at all.

And why couldn't you just used their animal companions already made? if this was a set of animal side kicks and we had Max, Little brother, mushu, Raja, Bruno, the owl from sleeping beauty, pascal, the foot rest from beauty and the beast, and a blue bird from snow white I mean come on Disney is all right there.

UGH seriously if Walt Disney was alive he would be ashamed of how selfish his company has become.

If they stuck with the existing animal companions there would have been no cats.

I think they are kinda cute but my mind is totally blown that Ariel's is a cat. Why not a pretty girly seahorse? Also, in the video, the underwater cat has random purple "hair." WTF?

Did anyone else notice that not a single "minority" princess (Mulan, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Tiana) is represented? Nice try, Disney!

It wouldn't have been so noticeable if they didn't skip straight to Rapunzel. Otherwise it would've looked like they just did the earlier ones.
Sailor Donut: Frankie IDEKjeweledeyes on June 28th, 2013 07:37 pm (UTC)
I'm confused by this. Are these supposed to be the princess' pets, or the princesses AS pets? Because it sure looks like the latter.
madison_face09: Marshall Leemadison_face09 on June 29th, 2013 02:20 am (UTC)
The latter is what I thought too. WTF.
genforever246genforever246 on June 30th, 2013 03:44 am (UTC)
What is an AS pet? Just curious.
Sailor Donut: Tsukasa bizarrejeweledeyes on June 30th, 2013 06:48 am (UTC)
Oh, I meant "as pets" but I capitalized "as" instead of italicizing it for emphasis XD
genforever246genforever246 on June 30th, 2013 10:03 pm (UTC)
Oh! Ahaha yeah. I also thought the latter there for a bit.
Sailor Donut: Goofy no wordsjeweledeyes on June 28th, 2013 07:39 pm (UTC)
Also, could that little Belle dog possibly look more smug? I mean really.
wardah_ahmar on June 28th, 2013 09:17 pm (UTC)
It seems I'm the only one that actually likes these. I for one am glad they didn't just take their existing animal sidekicks and glammed them up. Especially since I don't think any of them even had a cat. More cats is always a win for me. Of the original animal sidekicks the closest things to cats are Rajah (only if you count a tiger as a cat) Lucifer who was the villain's cat. I do wish that Tiana and Jasmine's (and maybe even Pocahontas and Mulan's if I want to push it) pets get added later.

OMG. So cute! My niece is gonna FLIP over these! My sister better watch out for her wallet! LOL

Jasmine doesn't get one? She should get a hamster or rabbit, they're desert animals! Thanks for sharing!

Oh Gawd. What the same hell is this.
Anako: Tangled// The darkness approachesiki_teru on June 29th, 2013 05:46 am (UTC)
....but if rapunzel met the pony at a parade celebrating her return WHY DOES SHE HAVE LONG BLONDE HAIR AGAIN?? DD:

also, I would be thoroughly freaked out if I were any of the girls and found a pet that looked that much like me. just saying.
JaDangerzjadangerz on June 29th, 2013 02:02 pm (UTC)
How come Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, and Merida are not included?
wardah_ahmar on June 29th, 2013 04:24 pm (UTC)
Saving them for later?

Mulan has a panda named Blossom:

and I'm sure the other princesses will get a pet soon.
wardah_ahmar on June 30th, 2013 01:55 am (UTC)
The company that is doing them is the same one that makes the Squinkies so there is a good chance they will do all of them.
genforever246genforever246 on June 30th, 2013 03:47 am (UTC)
Good, because I would be very angry if they just forgot.
genforever246genforever246 on June 30th, 2013 03:46 am (UTC)
Mulan is so pretty there. @_@
genforever246genforever246 on June 30th, 2013 03:49 am (UTC)
Um....I'm not really sure how I feel about this line. Is this really necessary? Honestly, I wish Disney would just expand their princess line for adults. I mean I just bought two of the new tiaras for this year because I couldn't pass off on their design. If they created a costume line for an older audience, wouldn't they be making some money off of us as compared to stealing money from kids? Really Disney, what happened to your class?

Also, they way the guy describes Cinderella's interests sounds really shallow in the video. Just saying, he could have said a lot of other stuff like I dunno, caring for others.

I'm not sure it is all on Disney. I think Blip (the toy company that is making these) wanted to make something using the Princess name besides Squinkies (since their popularity is waning) and they can't do dolls because Mattel has the license to make the adult versions of the Princesses and Jakks has the license for the toddler/baby versions of them. So the only way they could do something Princess related was to make them animals.

Yikes. I've always thought the marketing of the Princess line was way too cutesy, but this is just... yikes. I'll just pretend that this whole sparklified fluffy alternative universe doesn't exist.

Ariels creature should have been a sea-horse......
serenitylaserenityla on July 25th, 2013 02:05 am (UTC)
Belle, Rapunzel, Cinderella and Aurora all have two Palace pets now.Jasmine has a tiger cub named Sultan, So I say the rest of the pets are on their way.
