Self-Rescuing Princess - Kids
Disney Princesses Need Not Apply (unless we're talking about the extended remix with Mulan and Pocahontas)
You know what? We don't need no stinkin' knight in shining armor, thankyouverymuch. Yeah, sure there's a dragon, and the villain is over there in the corner explaining his evil plan, but I promise. We've got this entire situation under our tiny control.
There are lots of stories about heroic knights rescuing princesses. In fact, some of our favorite epics follow that same trope: Star Wars, Zelda, The Princess Bride.... But sometimes you've got to mix it up a little. You don't feel like sitting around playing the damsel in distress, patiently waiting for some Y chromosome to come to your aid. In fact, you might have to rescue some poor, wayward princes on your quest, which is okay. As long as they don't get in the way.
If you're reading this page, we're betting that you are that superheroine. But if you're not, we know you have one in your life. Your own personal Buffy, Lara Croft, Zoe, the wielder of The Witchblade, Xena, Kim Possible, Leela, Agent 355, Ripley, Wonder Woman, or (our favorite rolemodel for little girls) Elizabeth from The Paper Bag Princess. We could go on, but you get the idea. To paraphrase, geek girls kick butt and chew bubble gum, and we're all out of gum.
"Self-Rescuing Princess" is printed in turquoise blue beneath a glittery crown / tiara on this black 50% cotton / 50% polyester kids' t-shirt. If your self-rescuing princess needs a bigger size, move to the babydoll.
