Mattel's line of Disney Princess dolls for 2003 is the Fantasy Fashions line.

The Clubhouse can be expanded with PollyPlace Additions, also due out in June 2003, for about $9.99 each: the Dip 'N Dive Pool and the Gameroom Garage. (The playsets are also magnetic, so that the dolls can be placed anywhere on them, even on the ceilings.)

The regular-sized Fashion Polly line continues, with two new playsets in 2003: the Groovy Getaway Jet (due out in May 2003, with a price tag of around $14.99) and the Designer Mall (due out in June 2003, for about $24.99).
