Any which way you sparkle it, the princess stage is a royal pain.
Here are some of our favorite picks to help you make it through without surrendering to Disney — at least not completely.
She wants the queen’s jewels (yours); we suggest Stella & Dot. The new collection of necklaces, bracelets, and rings for girls has just the right amount of bling for little fingers and wrists ($14-$29).
Add the title of countess to her name by reading The Real Princess, a Mathemagical Tale ($17); expand her royal repertoire with The Barefoot Book of Princesses ($20), a collection of regal tales from around the globe.
Since your lady-in-waiting is more melamine than fine bone, serve her on French Bull’s new Princess Collection ($27-$32). The sunny and modern plates, bowls, and cups are all the charming she’ll ever need.
