Since going to the ball in an SUV or minivan doesnt quite have the romantic appeal of a horse-drawn carriage, and a dozen party-bound princesses are likely to squash any regular carriage like the pumpkin of another fairytale, the only viable solution here is
an expandable carriage! Based, of course, on the Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses
DVD, this fancy carriage is cleverly designed to expand to enable all 12 giddy princesses to squeeze in on their way to their forbidden nightlife scene (an evil duchess has put the kibosh on fun and dancing). The horse is as finely gussied up as the young ladies, with long, silky blonde mane and tale and elaborate pink reins. The carriage itself is pink, purple, and white; when the base is stretched out and additional seats popped up, the floor changes from white to purple. The plastic used may not last through generations of girls at play, but should hold up for as long as needed. Dolls not included. --Emilie Coulter
This Horse and Carriage set is inspired by the upcoming DVD release, "Barbie in The Twelve Dancing Princesses."
