Feminist Disney, did everyone know there was a Disney Princess...
did everyone know there was a Disney Princess version of Candyland??
Okay, I’m behind the times, I didn’t know it existed. It looks cute, BUT, it is a bit irritating to me that they always market the princesses in a way I really feel is almost demeaning to who the princesses are in their movies. They are more than just pretty girls who like smiling, dancing, and trying on clothes. But this is always how Disney tries to define what a “princess” is, and then they try and make princess mean “little girl.”
This is the point of the game:

Reminds me how every princess’s game on their site is, “oh no I forgot to pick an outfit out, can you help me pick one?”
Like geez this is Candyland! So many options! They are always dancing at balls, can’t it be the first princess to, idk, save the castle? Or even just have some generic “get to the castle” rather than, “dancing at the ball?”  It’s not the worst ever, but do options always have to be limited for kids who have giant imaginations??
I would ALSO like to point out that, although Tiana and Jasmine are on the box (much smaller than Rapunzel and Ariel), there is no option to actually play as a princess of color. Your playing options are limited to Cinderella, Snow White, Belle, or Aurora. And on top of that it’s seemingly a game about all the princesses yet Pocahontas and Mulan are not on the cover and are not game pieces? If you look at the game itself, they’re not anywhere on the board. Hello??

It goads me because their info is listed as, "Move along the sparkling Candy Land path with all of your favorite Disney Princesses” -are we just assuming now that they’re no one’s favorites??
