Full Ariel Doll Description:

About Designer Rocío Cintrón
Rocío Cintrón was born in Washington, D.C to Puerto Rican and Panamanian parents. As a child, her love for art, toys, and Disney led her to pursue a creative career. After graduating with a Toy Design degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, Rocio landed her dream job at Disney, and has been adding a little sparkle to Disney toys since 2010.
Disney’s The Little Mermaid was not only Rocio’s favorite film growing up, but it is also the source of her artistic inspiration. Princess Ariel resonated with Rocio because she longed to be part of two different worlds–celebrating her Latina culture as an American.
Rocío’s vision for Ariel’s dress is a blend of painterly and modern aesthetics. To achieve this look, Rocío channeled memories of painting Puerto Rican seascapes with her father, who coincidentally resembles King Triton. The inspiration for Rocío’s creativity stemmed from the end scene of The Little Mermaid when Ariel emerges from the water and onto land in her shimmering purple dress.
Other Designer Dolls
There are some other beautiful designer dolls as well. This includes:
The New Orleans-inspired Tiana doll by designer Cathy Clark-Ramirez is fused with bold art deco embellishments, a perfect match for Tiana’s determination. Designer Richard Chan was inspired by nature when conceiving the woodland flower-themed dress for Sleeping Beauty’s forest maiden Briar Rose. Designer Heidi Ticehurst celebrates Belle’s kindness and courage with a delicate sweeping dress, adorned in a deep red fierce enough to face any beast.
