Exciting news, Bandai surprised fans by announcing a Disney Princess Cinderella.
PLEX, a business partner of Bandai, is the maker behind Cinderella.
Cinderella is part of a series named “Doll Collection.”
According to the Press Release, translated below, Cinderella marks the 1st doll from the Doll Collection and more dolls are expected to be release.
There are somethings I find strange about this release.
Nowhere in Groove’s announcement, Bandai’s product description, or Hobby Dengeki’s press release do you find the word Pullip (プーリップ)
And Pullip’s logo, Groove’s logo, and Cheonsang Cheonha’s copyright are missing.
They simply reference Cinderella as a “30cm chibi doll.”
This is very unusual.
Hopefully this is a slight oversight and not a cause for concern.
Below is a prototype image of another Cinderella themed doll and other Disney inspired princesses by Jun Planning.
Can we expect to see them as part of the series?
Here is additional information about the Disney Doll Collection from the Press Release:
The Doll Collection brings you Cinderella, the protagonist Princess from the Disney film of the same name, in the form of a 30cm-tall chibi figure!
Available for pre-order from February 10, 2017. Check it out now!
Cinderella’s features are meticulously designed, and her blue eyes are made of translucent material to give them a lifelike sparkle.
The pale porcelain skin, long lashes, and light blush on her cheeks represent the beauty of Cinderella.
Press the button at the back of her head to move her eyes or make her wink. The light blue dress is fashioned after Cinderella’s ball gown in the movie.
Her stylish figure is enhanced in the A-line dress, and translucent organdy is used to give volume to the sleeves and overskirt, creating an elegant and delicate, yet gorgeous look.
The headband, choker, and glass shoes are also recreated from the movie.
The doll has a wide range of movement. You can make her clasp her hands in front, strike a dance pose, and make many other moves.Hobby Dengeki
At this time you can only purchase Cinderella 30cm chibi from Premium Bandai.
It’s still unknown if you can purchase dolls listed on Bandai outside of Japan.
Where To Order
- Hobby Search
- Ami Ami
- Premium Bandai (you’ll need a proxy service like From Japan)
Release Date: March 2017
Price: ¥18,500 about $163
Are you looking forward to this Princess or would you like to see a different Princess announced?
Will Bandai be the only store where you can buy the Doll Collection 30cm chibi dolls?
Why do you think there is no mention of Pullip’s name, should we be concerned or is it nothing out of the ordinary?
What do you think the possible reasoning is behind the marketing team omitting the word Pullip?
Should fans be cautious of these changes or is Pullip simply moving in a different direction?

I need that Snow White doll in my life
Your wish may come true 🙂
Groove Inc recently announced plans on releasing the 2nd Doll Collection, Belle from Beauty & The Beast.
So hopefully Snow White will be part of the lineup too!
Thanks for leaving a comment.
I saw the Belle doll on Instagram. There is also a Beast doll. I need the Belle doll!
Thank you for notifying us. 🙂
Ooh Belle is gorgeous and the beast puts a on smile on my face with his fluffy mask.
I’ve placed my pre-order for Belle.
Honestly I’m not a Disney Princess fan at all. But I know there are many fans out there so it’s a good idea they’re choosing to replicate them! I think the faceup and wig are done well, but somehow the torsos of her dress doesn’t seem to fit her well. Other than that she’s cute 🙂
That is so true about the popularity of the Disney Princesses.
Lately all I’ve been noticing is Disney all over the place, I don’t know if it’s due to this announcement or what. ^_^
I know, her face up is so sweet and innocent, I just love it.
I’m looking forward to her March release.
Thanks for chatting with us about the Disney Doll Collection Cinderella!
I really do think she’s cute but I’m no Cinderella fan in general. She would work for my Disney Princess inspired room if I could order her. Same with Yagen. I’ve been spinning my wheels trying to get him ordered through proxy but I’ve hit a wall. Oh well.
I bet your Disney Princess room is such a happy place! 🙂
Oh no, I’m sorry to hear that you’re having challenges with proxy services.
I’m not sure what service you’ve tried but I’ve used From Japan and their service is good.
Enter the URL of the item, in From Japan’s search bar.

Click the button and follow the on-screen instructions.
Unfortunately I don’t remember the exact fees that From Japan charges but here is their estimate calculator
Another good service is White Rabbit Express.
I love how simple it is to use their site.
Their fee is 12% which is kind of high but the site is super easy and convenient to use.

I know how much you are a Touken Ranbu fan, so I really hope you’re able to bring Isul Yagen home.
Thanks for commenting and if you need help ordering don’t hesitate to contact us!
Thought I would update you. I kept going back and forth and just gave up on him. I went on AmiAmi’s website and he’s up for pre-order with a release date of May 2017. Just ordered him today so now all is right with the world!
Thanks for the help!
Oh that’s so funny, I was gonna send you an email about the exciting news.
I’m so happy to hear that Isul Yagen Toushirou will be heading your way! 🙂
Thanks for keeping us updated.
Wow, Cinderella is gorgeous! They did a beautiful job making her come to life. Makes me eager to see what they do with the other princesses!
I know Cinderella is a true beauty.
Seeing how gorgeous she is makes be incredibly fearful to see the rest of the Princesses.
I just know if they release a Belle and if she looks as good as Cinderella I’m gonna have to cave and use a proxy service to bring her home.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about Cinderella with us!
I’ve already preordered her! Usually I don’t collect dolls made after characters I prefer original designs but Disney movies are all my childhood! I watched them with my younger sister and we tried to write the lyrics of the songs in order to learn them… Such memories… So I couldn’t resist when I saw the cute face of pullip Cinderella! >.<
If Groove announced her in their blog I imagine that they are ok with this if not why make add for her?
I'm happy to see that they are making more Disney princesses! I want Jasmine! And Anna from Frozen 😀 and the others of course!
No way you already pre-ordered her, congrats! 🙂
Did you order her using From Japan or did you use another proxy service?
Cinderella has a very classic faceup.
Her design reminds me of older Jun Planning dolls which is so refreshing.
It would be fabulous if they make all the dolls you’ve listed.
On Disney Japan’s website they have a list of 7 Disney Princesses.
Maybe these are the girls we can expect to see in the future.
This is such a big partnership that I’m just confused as to why the word Pullip is not highlighted with this amazing release.
Thanks for leaving a comment!
I can’t wait for you to get her. 🙂
Yep. I used From Japan. At the beginning everything went well but when it came to payment it send me a message of error. Panic here! XD I used Paypal and credit car way but still nothing. I supposed it was due to numerous people ordering at the same time because several minutes later it finally worked.
7 dolls you say? So Cinderella… I supposed there will be Aurore (The Sleeping Beauty but I don’t know if in English we say “Dawn”?), Snow White and Belle. They are the 4th most known princesses. Maybe Ariel from The Little Mermaid? For the last 2 I supposed it will be between Rapunzel, Jasmine and Elsa. Too bad for Anna but her sister is most famous ^^’ I have a doubt concerning Jasmine because of her skin tone. I remember the struggle between Groove and AGA over the Mocha skin. Could PLEX use it for Jasmine or is it an exclusivity of AGA?
Thanks for letting us know what service you used.
Whoa great job naming the 7 Princesses, you named them all.
Disney Princesses from Disney Japan’s site
I wonder who will be announced next?
OMGOSH if they make Jasmine using the Mocha body I think she will create a frenzy within the Pullip community.
I do remember AGA and Groove having issues with the Mocha skin.
If AGA is not involved in the Disney Doll Collection series than there maybe an issue with making a Jasmine doll, but lets hope this won’t be the case.
