I was invited to a special Disney Princess & Me event at Toys R Us in Manhattan. It was extra special for me because it was on my birthday!

It was about the new Princess & Me dolls (made by Jakks Pacific). The dolls are called friends, and you can use them in everyday life. They come with the original dresses they wore in movies. They have ballet dresses and sleepwear for sale, too. You also can buy a tea party set, vanity set and a dresser. The princesses available were Tiana, Aurora, Belle, Ariel and Cinderella. My favorite is Tiana.

The Princess & Me VIP event included stations. The first station was to take a personality quiz to find out which princess you are most like. I was most like Tiana.

Next, I got my hair done in a pretty bun and had tiara barrettes. Then, I had a snack. I got raspberry ice for my drink and two small cupcakes and a cookie shaped like Cinderella’s head.

After that, I went to get my nails done. Then, I got changed into a Tiana dress and took a picture with the Tiana doll. Next, I made a frame for my picture.

Finally, I got a swag bag, and it had the vanity set and princess Silly Bandz.

There was so much to do at the VIP event. Remember, these dolls won’t just be your toy, they also will be your friend.
