Disney Store Merida

Disney Store's Merida

While visiting my friend in the UK I had a chance to drop by a Disney Store. I loved almost everything they had! I've been sighing for a Animators' Collection Mulan for a while, but I've been traveling with hand luggage only and I couldn't buy such a big doll. I wanted a 2011 11'' Snow White and Rapunzel, but they had only the 2012 versions. However, they had Li Shang (2011 and 2012, newer version has bigger head and different box), a lovely new version of Ariel, fantastic Lottie and Merida, all also on my wish list. I couldn't make my mind!


Finally I chose Merida, because she is an awesome doll, and Shang, because he's been on the wish list for the longest time. But just wait till I get there again!


It was quite difficult to find a flawless Merida. Most had wonky eyes, which isn't that bad and adds some character, or just different paint style, smaller or bigger pupils, etc. Mine has some freckles migrated from her cheek to the forehead, but the nicest eyes I've seen on Merida.
Disney Store's Merida looks slightly crazy and that's what I love about her most!

Nicely made details: bow, arrow and quiver.
I haven't undressed her yet, which is quite unlike me, but she has the new fully bendable body. The dress is well made. The archer's sleeve is removable and reveals a normal dress sleeve.

Really funny shoes :)
DS Merida depicts the dynamics of the animation really well, especially her flowing hair. I don't know why, but she is currently one of my favourite dolls.



I've just noticed, this is my 50th post! Should I make a giveaway when I get to the 100th?

  7. Piękna dziewczyna :-) To duża sztuka zaprojektować postać, będącą jednocześnie formą przerysowaną i realistyczną. Przypomina mi postacie z "Artura i Minimków". Nie sprawdzałam, czy mają twórczo coś wspólnego...

    1. Też miałam takie skojarzenie na etapie pierwszych przecieków o Meridzie, potem jakoś o tym zapomniałam. Daj znać, jeśli coś wyśledzisz.
