Light-Up Googly Princess

A Snow White "Light-Up Googly Princess" was found in the Valentine's Day seasonal section at Target earlier this month. What's a Googly Princess? A squishy, jiggly party favor figure made from rubbery latex-like material. Stands a little over 3" tall. Retail just 99¢.



The bottom is imprinted with "© 2013 Imperial Toy LLC - Made in China - © Disney." And this particular Snow is stamped with a Target tracking number from October 2014.



Other princesses in the series include Ariel, Belle, and Cinderella.



One cool component is that each figure has a small ball in the skirt portion that lights up with a red, blinking light when impacted. Powered by a button cell battery (non-replaceable).




And here's a video showing the light-up feature in action...



These girls were also seen in 2014 at Walgreens in the Easter section (for about $3) and later at Walmart in the toy isle. Special thanks to 1937fan at Whistle While We Blog for the heads-up on this one and for sharing additional pics.

Snow White Squinkies Set

Squinkies are tiny figures (less than an inch in length) that squish when you squeeze them. Made from soft plastic (they do not contain latex). Four different 12-piece Disney princess sets were initially released, including Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, and Snow White.

The Snow White blister pack included: Snow White, Snow White with apple, the Prince, Evil Queen, Old Hag, and the Seven Dwarfs. Each figure came in its own individual 1" plastic bubble sphere. The collection was available at retailers in early 2011 and appeared on the Disney Store website in December of that year. Online price $12.50.

Fisher-Price "Little People" Snow White Set

One of the dangers of letting people know you have an interest in all things Snow White is that they tend to believe you. And as a result, these are the kinds of gifts I get during the holidays--this one came from my wife's boss at a Christmas party a couple years ago. Don't get me wrong, I think this Fisher-Price "Little People" set is pretty cool, but it does feel a bit odd when I'm the only one opening preschool toys in a room full of adults.

The Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs Little People set was sold in 2013, exclusively at Walmart and fisher-pricestore.com. Intended for children 18 months to five years old. Made of PVC plastic. Figures measure about 3" tall. Original retail $20.

The Little People set is compatible with Snow White's Cottage. It was sold separately but included a Snow figure and a Dopey (with lipstick on his forehead). Original retail $32.



Place a figure at the organ and it plays music.





Original box.





There was also a Disney Princess Songs Palace which came out in 2012. Snow White and Cinderella figures were included. Place Snow on the dance floor and she says her name and other phrases, plus sings her favorite tune, "Someday My Prince Will Come". With a total of 10 songs and 25 phrases included with the castle, any of the Little People princesses will function and play their own music. The dwarfs (and princes), however, only activate dance music. Original retail $55.




Dance floor spins.



Original box.




A Princess Figure Pack from 2012--seven in all--sold exclusively at Target stores. Other retailers offered the same princesses (and some princes) but in smaller sets of two. $7 per two-pack.
