What is happening:

  • the Disney Designer Collection is proud to present the Ultimate Princess Celebration, a limited series of dolls carefully crafted by artists from The Walt Disney Company.
  • Merida is the seventh doll to feature in the collection and is designed by Wes Jenkins.
  • Jenkins dedicates the Merida doll to the memory of her grandmother, Martha. Like Merida, she was a stubborn, but also compassionate redhead.
  • Jenkins’ connection to Merida goes beyond her hair and personality. Just like the young heroine with her bow and arrows, Jenkins was 4 years old when he learned to sew and embraced his artistic passions by following a different path than other kids his age.
  • This design showcases Merida in a blue and red tartan dress with her clan’s symbol in gold displayed on the skirt. Brown leather and gold chains accented with a bow and arrow charm add a nice level of dimension to the dress.

  • Merida’s hair is partially done, allowing her scarlet curls to cascade down her back.
  • Although the edition size has yet to be announced, previous dolls had edition sizes of 9,700 to 10,000.
  • The doll retails for $129.99.
  • The Disney Designer Collection Merida doll will be available on shopDisney on April 12 at 7 a.m. PT. The companion brooch will be available after the doll is released.
  • Check back soon for a link to the doll.
