The Princess and the Pea

 The Real Princess, more commonly known as The Princess and the Pea, is a fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen in which a prince's sole criteria for marriage is that his bride must be a "real princess."  Her true princess-ness can be determined by her delicate constitution and sensitivity to the most minute discomfort.

While the Princess and her bad night of sleep may not be the most desirable role model for our daughters, it's a story that captures the imagination nonetheless.  And now one lucky little girl can play out the story over and over with her very own Princess and the Pea set!

She has 12 mattresses (Sorry, Hans...your 20 mattresses and 20 featherbeds were a bit much for me!), a tote bag, 3 peas, and a card printed with the original story.  And she was a birthday present for a now-4-year-old little girl this past weekend.

The Princess and her mattresses were from the More Softies Only a Mother Could Love and the tote is my own design.
