Princess of the Month: Rapunzel #DreamBigPrincess

When the time of delivery arrived, the Fairy went near the mother who gave birth to a daughter, whom the fairy gave the name Persinette; she received it in gold cloth diapers, and sprinkled her face with precious water she had in a crystal vase, which restored at the same time, the most beautiful creature in the world.

I am part of a fun campaign with Hasbro Canada and my twins are very much getting into the princess phase.  I am happy to share these fun toys with you and for you to enter to win some great giveaways throughout the year!  April is Rapunzel Month so I am happy to share with you what’s new in Hasbro and a little about Rapunzel.  Here’s what I’ve done for this post.  A little fact about Rapunzel, I will be doing this with every Princess I feature this month and try to go back to the history of the stories and share little tidbits here and there from their classic fairytales and origins.

A little history on Rapunzel:
Who is Rapunzel?  If you’re thinking about the story from the Brother Grimms, I have something else to share with you.  Have you heard of Persinette by Mademoiselle de la Force.  It is a fascinating and classic fairytale told in the late 1690’s.  It was later retold by German author Friedrich Schultz.  His version is almost identical to Mademoiselle de la Force but the name is changed to Rapunzel, then retold in 1812 by the Brother Grimms.  I find the fairytale so mysterious and magical as it’s about a young girl given to a fairy by her parents for a handful of green herbs.  Parsley!   Her story of a couple whilst the wife was pregnant with Persinette/Rapunzel she craved so much parsley that the husband got caught stealing it from the fairy.   He promised her their baby in return and well…I encourage you to read the original tale, linked above in bold.  It’s so different, yet romantic and a classic.

               “Well, said the fairy, I’ll give you everything parsley as much as you want, if you give me the child which your wife will give birth.”

                                        Rapunzel Royal Shimmer

Rapunzel Disney however is a little different and is featured in the movie Tangled which was Disney’s 50th animated film.   I love fairytales.  I teared up a little ready Disney’s version and it must be my PMS, lol, as I get super emotional but I love the retelling of stories and this excerpt.
        “You were my new dream,” he whispered. One of Rapunzel’s tears fell on Flynn and began to glow… and healed him!”

Disney Princesses are some of the most iconic characters in the world. Many of their stories have been carried down from generation to generation, and are still resonating with girls today. However, even though these stories are being passed along, children’s play patterns are changing. Today’s consumers are looking for more fluidity in their play, and the opportunity to take charge of their storytelling.  In discovering this, Hasbro has worked closely with Disney to develop a new Disney Princess line that gives kids ways to do that while staying true to each Princess’s unique attributes and story.

RapunzelTowerHasbroTo celebrate April and Rapunzel, Tangled style I have a great little giveaway for your little one’s!  My twins have had fun playing with their first Disney doll, pictured above.  The Little Kingdom Rapunzel’s Stylin’ Tower (for 4yrs and up) was a hit as was the Disney Princess Little Kingdom Royal Sparkle Collection(4+yrs & up)
