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.
  • Ariel (Newly Designed) is the fifteenth and final doll to be featured in the collection and is designed by Rocío Cintrón.
  • shopDisney notes that Ariel’s look combines “painterly and modern aesthetics” that stem from Cintrón’s upbringing in Puerto Rico. Cintrón and her father (who resembles King Triton) would paint beautiful seascapes together and those memories helped to spark the artistic elements of Ariel’s gown.

  • The overall look is inspired by the end scene of The Little Mermaid when Ariel emerges from the water and onto land in her shimmering purple dress.
  • Ariel is dressed in a one strap, knee length gown with an attached full skirt that’s purple at the waist but transitions to blue near the base. Small rhinestones dot the skirt, which is also finished with blue and silver swirls that resemble ocean waves.

  • Her hair is secured in a high ponytail and embellished with a large flower hairpiece. She wears aqua blue strappy sandals with seashell decoration and carries a translucent pearl/gold purse.
  • Edition size is 5,500 and each doll retails for $129.99.
  • The Disney Designer Collection Ariel (Newly Designed) Doll will be available December 13th at 7am PT on shopDisney. The companion pin
