REVIEW: Snow White

IMG_7703

Background

“One of Disney's most enduring love stories, Snow White tells the story of an innocent young princess forced into danger by her jealous Wicked Queen only to find safety and friendship amongst the Seven Dwarves, and the ultimate rescue by a charming prince and his single kiss.”

Robert Tonner and Tonner Doll Company recently added Snow White to their lineup of Disney Princesses in the Walt Disney Showcase Collection. Currently available in her traditional attire as well as the Wishing outfit (wearing a tattered dress), we’ll be looking at Disney’s classic Snow White.

Packaging

The Snow White figure is packaged in a rectangular box similar to other Tonner Doll Company products. The front of the box is fairly simple, stating Walt Disney Showcase Collection.  Inside, the doll is secured using ribbons and Styrofoam. And the various accessories are all individually bagged.

The Figure

Snow White is approximately 15” in height and features 15 points of articulation. The figure is based on Disney’s animated classic character and features an outfit straight from the film – albeit not animated. She is wearing the classic yellow and blue dress, a blue cape (red on the reverse side), a red ribbon headband and yellow heels.

The doll uses Tonner’s teen body as well as a new head sculpted specifically for Snow White. She features black rooted saran hair in a chin length style. And each piece includes a clear bottom display stand.

This figure is limited to a run of 1,000 pieces.

Our Opinion

In recent years, several of the classic Disney Princesses have become hot commodities yet again. Considering that Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarves was released in 1937, it’s not as if this is a new character. She should be living out her glory years in a retirement community down at Del Boca Vista.

Nevertheless, if there was a company that should produce dolls based on the classic character, it should obviously be Tonner. At around $175, these wouldn’t be toys for the little girls who love to play with Disney Princess products. The ideal location for Snow White is a high shelf from which the kids could simply appreciate this doll.

As far as the outfit and accessories, it’s a fairly simple doll. It’s similar to some of Tonner’s less expensive lines.  However, I’m sure that the Disney license adds a $25 to $50 premium onto this piece.
