“The Little Mermaid” made a splash on the big screen 30 years ago, and to celebrate the movie’s anniversary, Hasbro is releasing a new line of toys featuring Ariel, her sisters, and Prince Eric.
INSIDER shared a first look at the new merchandise ahead of Toy Fair 2019. “We’re excited to join the celebration with the release of a completely new collection of Disney Princess dolls for endless fun under the sea to honor this exciting milestone,” Kristin Hamilton, Hasbro’s vice president of global brand strategy and marketing, told INSIDER. “Ariel is a beloved character in the Disney Princess world, and we’re looking forward to bringing more play experiences with Ariel (and her sisters) to current and new fans of ‘The Little Mermaid.'”
