'I'm going to make some very small dollies too,' he said, 'and to avoid copyright issues, my dollies will be based on fairytale characters.'
So he made his dollies. Can you see them in the picture at the top? Look, there's Cinderella with her pumpkin coach, and Sleeping Beauty with a bed, and Goldilocks with some empty porridge bowls, and a weird, amorphous lump pretending to be a bear.

Although, if we're going to be strictly accurate, she comes from the Land of Nursery Rhymes, not the Land of Fairytales.

But Mr Hasbro just decided to focus on the first verse, which tells of her empty cupboard and her starving dog, and is not really very happy, is it, boys and girls?
