A short sheer peplum split up the front is a perfect princess touch. When girls push the jewel-shaped button above Catania doll’s waist, the folds of her skirt magically open to create a fuller dress with a stunning, sparkly pattern fit only for a princess – lots of swirls, diamonds and petals! Girls can also play with Catania by manually lifting the dolls’ wings. Catania’s crowning touch to both her princess and fairy outfits is a purple tiara.
