Tonner Disney Princess Update  

New Tonner Disney Princesses!
Tonner Jasmine DollTonner Ariel DollTonner Rapunzel Doll

Tonner Ariel DollTonner Ariel Doll Detail

Despite having lost her voice, ARIEL still manages to leave everyone speechless as she enters the dining hall in a shimmering gown of tulle and satin, complimented with faux pearl earrings and hair clips. Petticoat, pantyhose, and faux leather pumps also included.
Tonner Jasmine DollTonner Jasmine Doll Detail
Spirited and beautiful, PRINCESS JASMINE longs to see the world outside the palace walls, dressed in a glistening cropped top with matching harem pants, slippers, faux leather necklace, earrings, and jeweled head wrap.
Tonner Rapunzel DollTonner Rapunzel Doll Detail
Get tangled in magic! From Disney's whimsical film Tangled comes RAPUNZEL, dressed in a custom-printed satin blouse with lace trim and lace-up detail, paired with a matching custom-printed satin skirt. Matching ballet slippers also included.

I'm never wild about Tonner's faces (they're made to look mature, which is... odd on such young, cartoonish characters) but overall I like the detail that goes into these dolls.

At the Tonner site you can also see Aurora (as Briar Rose and in her pink gown), Cinderella, Snow White (as a scullery maid and in her Princess druthers), and Tiana. Maleficent, The Evil Queen, and Jessica Rabbit are also featured as dolls.

The Rapunzel doll is a dead ringer, but Jasmine and Ariel don't look a damn thing like them. :\

I feel the same way. Jasmines face is so unattractive and Ariels brows are just wrong

I really like the look of these.

Rapunzel looks a little...er, high, though. Maybe it's just the pose.

I love the idea, but the faces are weird. Rapunzel's head is way big. D: I looooooooove the clothes.

Well, someone at least is showing by example why redheads shouldn't wear pink. lol

I think the best part is how you know exactly what he's saying, but it's not vulgar to anyone else. :3

It's sinking in for me that I don't go for high-end collectibles because something feels off about owning a doll whose dress cost more than any I've owned. But I am giving a happysigh over those freckles.

I never like their dolls. : /
I'm sure they're very well-made and they seem to be very detailed, but they just don't ever look pretty to me.

EDIT: Also, Rapunzel's eyebrows are messed up in that photo. I don't know if they meant them to be like that, but that would bug me to no end. Probably enough to make me want to repaint them myself.

Why are all of their eyes so far apart?? ARGH!

The dresses and hair are amazing. Rapunzel's face is okay.

I would pay maybe $30 for one with those fail-ass faces.

The only one I've ever liked is the Tiana, and I was so glad I got it on sale. It was worth it for $60.

The biggest problem I have with the Jasmine doll is her hair. And that's not Ariel's face.

I like how Rupunzel has this "Say what?" type look on her face. I like Ariel's face but she reminds me too much of Lucille Ball. Jasmine looks too grey in skin and outfit. I am suprized that Ariel is dressed in her pink dress not like the Disney version which has purple and gold. The same wardrobe also had this dress in green and pink. Nice to see this dress finally made properly.

I think Jasmine and Ariel's faces are uniquely horrible. Tonner does this thing where he makes one eye higher or differently shaped from another. Either he does it deliberately or he just can't see it.

It drives me nuts. You can clearly see what I'm referring to with Jasmine. People defend it as "Realistic" and "Natural" but I think it's either his inability to look at his work critically or intentional as some kind of signature.

With these Disney dolls there is absolutely no excusing it however as no Disney Princess has any such variance in her face and it destroys any possibility of an acceptable likeness. I truly wish the Disney would not approve any of these until he corrects it.

My $10.00 Disney Store Exclusive Jasmine doll has absolutely level even eyes and I fully expect a nearly $200.00 doll to be as good or better.

Rapunzel has a bit of it going on too and so does Belle.

It's a shame because Ariel's dress looks fantastic and I'd actually buy one, but not with that face.

I thought Disney told him to stop with the pseudo realistic faces anyway. That they wanted accuracy now?

LMAO @ uniquely horrible.

not that I disagree
Fabrice Fabricepikapika217 on February 15th, 2011 12:41 pm (UTC)
I hate them all. Nobody seems to get Rapunzel right, I'm glad my favorite version is the cheapest one though (mattel)
