My wife and I have been eying this next collectible at The Disney Store for a while now and just finally gave in to the temptation and paid the price to make her our own.

This is a nice line of 16″ singing Princess dolls that caught our attention with the beautiful packaging:
Front, side, and back
When on the shelve and obviously still in the box, the packaging has a demonstration mode whereby Rapunzel sings two lines of one of her signature songs ‘I See the Light’. To activate this mode you simply open the front flap of the box. Due to a wire connection, the magic begins:
Lantern and hair light up
Once out of the box, you simply place the lantern over Rapunzel’s hand for a fuller version of the song. The level of detail is quite good, making this doll a truly lovely display piece:
Most dolls I see fail to get the face right, but this release nails Rapunzel’s expressive eyes:
Below I have included the official information from Disney about this doll.

We are undecided as to whether we will let Rapunzel out of her tower (box, actually) so for now she will have to await our decision inside her new cardboard and plastic prison. She does not come with a display stand which is a major omission for such an expensive show doll.
This was released in 2015 and sells currently for around $60.00 CAN. Ariel (The Little Mermaid) and Elsa (Frozen) are also available.
