I just saw the trailer for the movie Brave that is coming out in June and all I could think the entire time was Carpatina, Carpatina, they need to make a doll for the lead character Merida, Carpatina!!

Don’t you think she would make a stunning doll??? I do! I mean, that gorgeous curly red hair – she would be a fabulous doll.

The plot: Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor. Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin, surly Lord Macintosh and cantankerous Lord Dingwall. Meridaโ€™s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before itโ€™s too late.

Here is the trailer – and I am really looking forward to seeing this one in movie theaters this summer.

Don’t you think all these gowns from Carpatina would be perfect for a Merida doll?

Actually, I think Tonner Doll could make an amazing Merida, but I am sure that like Rapunzel and other Disney gals, there will be a variety of sizes and interpretations available for us to buy. Yes, and somehow I missed at Toy Fair, but here are some of the Merida dolls and merchandise already. Again, I think Tonner could make a prettier, more true to the movie version.
