I'm pretty ambivalent about princesses: I don't hate them, but I definitely don't love them, and really, end of the day, if they were to all disappear from the culture I wouldn't exactly miss them. Happily, my daughter feels more or less the same way. Unless those princesses are on ice. Then they're awesome. Then they're REALLY awesome.
She's never actually seen any princesses on ice - which is to say, skating princesses - but we did watch the Nutcracker the other night and she remarked that it'd better if there were hockey players involved, which, you have to admit, is pretty solid logic, not to mention conclusive evidence that she's Canadian. She meant, basically, that it'd be better if the characters were skating. "Especially the princess," she said, referring to the Sugarplum Fairy, who really would be a lot more hardcore if she played goal.
