I am suprised at no comments. Creating a bald Princess is a very considerate thing to do. On the other hand its a little conflicton of a childs view on Disneys Princess. If they did proceed with the idea it would change Disneys reputation for fun and excitment. looking at a terminally ill childs view of a bald princess...It of course would help them with chemotherapy and give them encouragement throughout their illness. Now lets look at a nonterminally ill childs view. She of course will ask why is this princess bald and this one is not? The parents has to explain and the childs view of princess is forever change. I feel it would put a nonterminally ill child under unnessary worry. Again It is a very thoughtful idea...also at the same time creating possibe conflict. It would be nice it there was no such thing as terminal ill. Its a sad thing for a child or anyone to go through illness.

I think it is a good idea. Every little girl should feel like they are a princess. Beauty comes in many forms...not just blonde hair and blue eyes. We need to teach our children to embrace the beauty in all people--and to love them unconditionally. A bald princess would help break barriers regarding cancer and other conditions like alopecia.
