Cinderella has gone from a charming childhood tale to an endless children’s marketing ploy. Cinderella now has board games, little figurines, toys, cakes and many other creations. In Disney stores they sell many different kits of Cinderella clothing for dolls. They have dress up Cinderella and in the package they have her slave outfit and her ball gown. They also have her crown and her accessories along with different figurines from the movie. If it weren’t for Disney making these toys for kids, they wouldn’t have anyone to sell it too. Another reason why there are so many games out there is because kids are easier to see too because they are so easily corruptible. They’ll see on TV for Christmas an add for a new Cinderella board game and they’ll automatically say “I want that” and since they’re kids, they’ll continue to pester their parents for that toy and eventually get it.

Every little girl wants to be a princess one day or another. Why may you ask? Simple, princesses are pretty, they’re funny, they’re cute, and they market Cinderella for kids. They make it a need for kids to be princesses. When you’re a princess you have all the attention on you, you enjoy pretending that you live in a castle and you like to know that you have everything you’ve ever wanted. You have this incredible power and no one can take it away from you.

Put yourself in the mind of a child and try to remember why you wanted to be a princess and let us know what your reasons were!
