It’s Not All Mary Poppins


Is brilliant!

I love this! Your little girl loves to dress up? Look at all the options there are!

Let’s kick those vapid Disney princesses to the curb!

  3. Isn’t that FABULOUS?! I’m already making plans to do something similar with Bess! At two, we’ve managed to avoid Disney Princesses so far (with some unfortunate editing of great-grandparent presents). I know it’s just a matter of time, but I refuse to give up!

  4. My 2 year old daughter was recently invited to a fancy dress birthday party. I have two older boys and so she went in the fireman costume she loves (although it was a close run thing with the builders outfit). When we got there, every other girl, without exception was wearing a Disney princess type dress.

    We don’t have any girl specific fancy dress and it never occurred to me that there was effectively a fancy dress uniform for girls.

    I don’t want her to think she can’t be a fireman/builder/pumpkin/knight/racing driver/mechanic/pirate (which are probably the other costumes we have on offer) and I don’t want any more costumes but I did feel really torn because I know it won’t be long until she is bothered and wants to ‘fit in’. 😦

  5. She was a fire-fighter princess! There are also pirate, cowboy, builder, soldier and soccer princesses. Really. Just add a tiara to your helmet and you’re good to go…

  6. Brilliant and beautiful! So inspirational and such a contrast to, as you said, the “vapid” ideal of womanhood a la Disney. Real women getting along in the real world using their intelligence, their strength, their determination and their wit. All without layers upon layers of crinoline and silk ribbons…imagine that. Kudos to Emma’s mom. Thanks for posting this. 😀
