Disney Princess

Featuring Disney Princesses and Enchanting Tales in two sizes of pack made for Eastern Europe.

2009 Austria Czech Republic Europe Hungary Piatnik Disney Fantasy Add to Collection

Under the terms of the licensing agreement, both the small and large-sized packs were made by Piatnik specifically for the Hungarian and Czech markets.

Disney Princess - normal size

Each suit corresponds to a different Disney Princess: Snow White (H), Cinderella (C), Ariel (D), Belle (S). Every card is illustrated (with repetition on the 3 and 8 of Clubs). The background colour is a strong pink on the court cards and Aces and a pale pink on the numeral cards. The indices appear only once on each card. See the box

Disney Princess - large size

The Disney Princesses featured include Snow White and Ariel; the others are less easy to distinguish since, in this pack, they are all wearing golden dresses. The 13 different images are repeated on the same card in each suit, with a fourteenth on the Joker. The background colour is a strong pink so the indices and pips on the red suits do not stand out well. The pack is subtitled “Enchanted Tales”. See the box
