Princess Lego – Duplo Disney Princess Set Guide

Princess Lego FeatureThe new line of Duplo Disney Princess Lego sets are aimed at young children (ages 18 months to five years).

While I was never a “Princess” girl myself (I think I preferred dressing up as Batman’s sidekick Robin) I am a big fan of Disney animation and I have to admit some of these sets look very cool.

I’m sure they would appeal to kids who like the Disney Princess Franchise of toys, films and books.

And if Lego ever brings out sets based on the film Tangled – count me in!  I can’t say enough how much I love that film  – I cry my eyes out every time I watch it- in a good way :0)

Princess Lego  – Disney Duplo

The Disney Princess theme is based on the popular franchise which brings together the most popular “princesses” of the Disney films.

This includes Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Belle from Beauty and The Beast, Snow White from (you guessed it) Snow White as well as Aurora from Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella.

In 2012 Lego decided to produce a number of sets based on the Disney Princess line to complement their existing Disney Duplo lines which are based on Disney Pixar’s Cars and Toy Story films.

The first wave of Princess Duplo sets feature three of the Princesses, arguably the most “classical” members of the team – Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. As time goes on hopefully Lego will expand the line to include the more modern interpretations of the Princess mythology. You can purchase the Lego Princess sets at Amazon.

Disney Princess Duplo

Lego Princess Sleeping Beauty's Room 6151 SetAs far as Duplo sets go these are pretty cool – I especially like the Cottage, Carriage and Castle.

While the Sleeping Beauty bedroom set doesn’t really ignite my imagination I can see why Lego have chosen it. After all it fits well with the story of Sleeping Beauty. She’s a princess, who sleeps.

Nevertheless it seems a strange choice for a play set; “High in the castle tower surrounded by pretty roses, Sleeping Beauty rests in her soft blue bed. She knows only a handsome prince can break the magic spell and wake her from her slumber.” With a marketing pitch like that it makes you wonder why Lego Friends has attracted all the controversy over there in the regular Lego line.

If I take off my political hat though, I can see the point of the set. Having watched my daughter put her toys to bed over and over again, I know Lego have done their homework here.

Still, I love the film Sleeping Beauty (Mary Blair + Eyvind Earle=beautiful art) and I know there are slightly more “active” roles that Aurora took on and it would be nice to see them reflected in the set. I’m not saying we need Maleficent as a Dragon…but then maybe that would be a nice addition to allow the opportunity for the sets appeal to different interests/genders.

Slight niggles aside I like the sets and as a mother I am very happy to see some quality toys in the Disney Princess franchise as I have seen some horrible, cheap-and-nasty ones over the last five years or so.

Like all Lego Duplo theses sets are made of superb quality plastic that will last for years and probably pass through the hands of many children.

And the wonderful thing is that, since Lego lasts a long time and fits with all other Lego, children will no doubt integrate these sets with other themes. So the “princesses” of this theme can go visit Cars, Toy Story or fly a helicopter and hang out on the farm.

To me, that is the real beauty of these sets.
