What’s Happening:

  • The Disney Designer Collection is proud to introduce the Ultimate Princess Celebration, a limited-edition series of dolls carefully crafted by artists across The Walt Disney Company.
  • Merida is the seventh doll to be featured in the collection and is designed by Wes Jenkins.
  • Jenkins dedicates the Merida doll to the memory of his grandmother, Martha. Like Merida, she was a redhead who was headstrong, but also compassionate.
  • Jenkins’ connection to Merida goes beyond her hair and personality. Much like the young heroine with her bow and arrow, Jenkins was 4 when he learned to sew and embrace his artistic passions following a path different from other kids his age.
  • This design showcases Merida in a blue and red tartan dress embellished with her clan’s symbol in gold displayed across the skirt. Brown leather and golden chains accented with a bow and arrow charm add an eye pleasing level of dimension to the gown.
  • Merida’s hair is partially done up allowing her scarlet ringlets to cascade down her back.
  • Edition size is 9,800 and the doll retails for $129.99.
  • The Disney Designer Collection Merida Doll will be available on shopDisney on April 12th at 7am PT. The companion pin will be available after the doll’s release.
