    sorry for my delay in reply guesswho. Actually, its so much fun to join her fun. They are only in this phase for a short period of time. With my DD, I try to observe what is triggering her interest. If she likes watching a princess themed cartoon, so be it. It makes her happy when I sit beside her and talk about the gown, palace, magic etc. Its only been 2 Christmas’s since she was born, and I started a tradition of baking cookies and leaving them for santa on the eve. Now she may not know what it all means and believes in Santa but eventually she will know that there is a difference between magic/imagination/fiction and reality.

    Tinkerbell is not princess stuff. Its fairies and it’s so adorable with pixie dust etc. Princess Sofea is another adorable little princess.

    Bottom line is, as long as she doesn’t start getting vibes about herself or comparing herself with the princess, I would say, let her watch this stuff.
