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. Merida’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 it’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.
