 I prefer Cinderella

She said Belle but she actually likes Tiana the best

I figured that was your reasoning, and i like it :) I always tell my DD that the whole prince charming, happily ever after theme of those movies, is a load of crap.

Quoting SlightlyPerfect:

Right now DD's 3½. I think when she's a bit older, I'd feel better about princesses. Right now I want her exploring things like career opportunities, science, animals, nature,  books, etc.

There's something about the way princesses are portrayed now, especially by Disney. Very superficial. Not much substance. Literature I love, but I think princesses, overall, don't have much "purpose" as characters. They're pretty inactive, static, flat. They're portrayed as passive observers. Life happens to them. It's that superficial element I want to keep from DD for as long as I can.

Plus, I really despise Disney (I used to have to work with their lawyers), and after I read Cinderella Ate My Daughter, my hatred was validated. ;)

Quoting heather4511:

I understand this, but I'm just curious why you feel this way.



Quoting SlightlyPerfect:

My daughter is not a princess and does not like them. I'd like to keep it that way.

 When she was little, it was Belle.

I don't have a dd but I like both... I think I sort of like Cinderella just a bit more.

Ariel, Belle and Rapunzel are our faves. We like Tiana too.
