2015 Disney Fairytale Designer Collection - Dolls

In 2011, Snow White was part of the popular Princess Designer Collection. In 2012, the Evil Queen was unveiled in the Villains Designer Collection. Then both Snow and her Prince were in the 2013 Fairytale Designer Collection. Now she's back once more--this time with the Old Witch--in the 2015 Fairytale Designer Collection.

Created from artwork by Steve Thompson, the Principle Designer for the creative team at the Disney Store, this year's Fairytale Designer Collection 'celebrates the relationship between good and evil' and features five sets of limited edition collector doll pairs of heroes and villains. Limited to 6,000 globally. Each comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

In addition to Snow White and the Witch, the sets include Peter Pan and Captain Hook, Rapunzel and Mother Gothel, Ariel and Ursula, and Elsa and Hans.

The new series was first announced on July 23, 2015 at the D23 Disney Fan site and on the Disney Store blog. The merchandise would then be debuted at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, August 14-16, where attendees would have the opportunity to pre-order the entire doll caboodle.
