What parents need to know

Positive messages

The Princesses may not be the best role models for little girls, but they're not the worst, either. The site shows off their range of skills and personalities, and young fans should find a favorite to relate to.

Consumerism

You'll find lots of product tie-ins here. In classic Disney style, this website makes sure to embed purchasing options wherever it can. It also includes tabs Store and Parks to cover all the Disney properties.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking
Not applicable
Privacy & safety

The site doesn't save game information unless you have a Disney account, and although purchases require the standard credit card details, the buying process should be extremely safe.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Disney Princess is a one-stop shop for all things princess. Featuring the now eleven Disney princesses (including Mulan, Rapunzel, and Pocahontas, who've been given princess status), the site is pure eye candy for little royalty lovers. Parents should be prepared that kids might beg for some of the tempting products available in the site's shop. Still, there's fun to be had without paying a cent.

Engagement, Approach, Support

Engagement

If kids are already fans, they'll find the site engaging, but it doesn't have a lot of depth. Activities are simple and some of the games require a bit of dexterity.

Learning Approach

The only real learning options on the site are within the games, where kids can develop some fine motor and thinking skills.

Support

The site is easy to navigate. Games have thorough text instructions, but lack audio support for younger users.

Kids can learn about positive personal qualities like strength, ambition, and creativity. The games require some reading and can help kids develop various thinking and reasoning skills. Disney Princess is a fun place for kids to revisit their favorite characters, but learning is pretty limited.

What's it about?

DISNEY PRINCESS features movie clips, games, photo galleries, and dress-up activities, all starring the beloved team of Disney princesses. From Snow White to the most recently crowned member, Merida from Brave, kids have many opportunties for princess worship here.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

It's a little disappointing to see that the range of activities for young princess fans is limited to primarily dress-up and dancing games. Disney princesses have never been known for their feminism, so the site counters this with things like the "I Am a Princess" video, featuring girls doing karate, archery, and race car driving. In voice-over, it shares the message "I am a princess. I am brave sometimes, and scared sometimes." Kids will love to see their favorite stars online in all their luminous glory, and the activities are sweet and fun. It's also great to see four princesses of color in the mix.

Families can talk about...

  • Parents can talk about the princess life. What makes a princess? What are some special challenges that Disney's princesses have to face?

  • Families can discuss their child's favorite princess. Why do you like her best? What are her best qualities? Focus on traits like strength and bravery. What gets in her way of reaching goals?
