The magic of Disney is in the way they capture our imagination as kids and even as adults we continue to deeply connect with their princesses and heroines. Ariel from Disney’s The Little Mermaid is no exception to that, in the more than 30 years since she first graced our screens she remains one of the most beloved Disney Princess. She now joins the likes of Snow White, Peter Pan and Winnie-the-Pooh in Lladró’s Official Disney Collection.
Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid, Disney’s rendition is a touching coming of age story about fighting for our dreams and the love between father and daughter. She was the first princess in what is now known as the Disney Renaissance period from 1989 to 1999 that brought us many of our favourite characters like Simba, Jasmine, Belle and Mulan in stories that focused on the internal growth of characters and female empowerment. The character of Ariel was a huge success and she has continued to be a defining role model for young girls and women since her debut. Rightfully so, her bravery, drive and faith in her dreams teaches us to to live boldly and stand up for what we want. Her mistakes during the film also show us how growth is important and that even princesses don’t always get it right the first time.
Lladró’s Official Ariel Figurine perfectly captures all the spunk and optimism of her character, with her eyes looking upwards toward the surface, she seems as though she’s about to belt the chorus of her iconic number ‘Part of Your World’. Lladró’s high quality porcelain is the perfect medium to capture the life in eyes and the ethereal movement of her signature red hair. This addition to the Official Disney Collection comes in anticipation for the live-action film that is soon to join the wildly successful collection of Disney’s live-action remakes.
