The highly anticipated Sleeping Beauty 17 Inch Heirloom Collection has been revealed - offering one surprise doll. While it was expected Maleficent would be offered in the series, there was still debate if Prince Phillip would be offered. This speculation came after seeing the first male 17 inch doll made last year with Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid. Prince Phillip will be part of the series - as well as Aurora in a blue version of her dress.
"Our three new Limited Edition Sleeping Beauty Dolls will be available select stores across North America, starting Tuesday, October 7 and online starting Wednesday, October 8. For European Guests, please visit your local Disney Store Facebook page for release information and pricing."
July. This is the same version as the pink doll, only with the different color scheme. Aurora in blue will be a Limited Edition of 4000. Prince Phillip is the second male 17 inch doll (fueling rumors that next year will see an Aladdin doll released with Jasmine) and he comes with rooted hair, a flowing cape, embroidered tunic and a sword and shield. Though people note that he does not quite look like the cartoon version, this is a very well made and outfitted doll. Prince Phillip will be a Limited Edition of 3500. Both dolls will sell for $119.95 and are also available on October 7th in stores and October 8th online.
