A soft fez sits at a jaunty angle on Aladdin’s thick wavy hair and he brandishes a metallic scimitar set with red gems that glow like a tiger’s eyes. A sculpted figure of Abu the monkey, Aladdin’s best friend, looks as if he’s about to spring to life to make some mischief. A true “diamond in the rough,” Aladdin’s courage and determination are captured in this doll, making it the perfect companion to the Jasmine Limited Edition Dolls and a treasured addition to any collection.
