Ah, I have a wonderful idea! Have you ever worn a tiara? Rory:
Well, when I was four... Emily:
You look like a princess.
If you ask a girl who's in preschool or kindergarten she'll probably know that Everything's Better with Princesses
. She will have a fairy tale princess's attitude
making her anywhere between a gracious but breakable cutie
and a Tiny Tyrannical Girl
who might feel entitled to a pony
She is or acts like she's seven years old at the most. Princesses Prefer Pink
so that's probably her favorite color. She'll imagine herself as a pretty princess
or prentend to be a princess bride
. Her court will be consist of stuffed animals
and dolls. She might want a Prince Charming
by her side as long as she still gets to be her Daddy's Girl
, looking up to him as if he's a king. If you tried to explain it to her she wouldn't understand why Girls Need Role Models
Contrast the other end of the scale where she's One of the Boys
. Compare Real Men Wear Pink
where there's a little princess in each manly man. Also compare the Disney Princess
It's the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs..."
- The Princess and the Frog: Charlotte La Boef is firmly in this stage when we see her and Tiana as young girls in the opening--her room filled to the brim with pink frilly dresses, tiaras, and fairytale accessories while she moons over a fairytale read by Tiana's mother. Flash forward fifteen or so years...and nothing's changed.
- In A Little Princess Sara Crew lives a charmed life so much so that she not only fancies herself a princess but says that all girls are princesses. She's nearly a teenager but it fits since it is in the Victorian period and probably aimed at little girls.
- Rory Gilmore of Gilmore Girls doesn't want her grandmother to make her into a princess as she thinks of it being something for small children.
