13 Shows For Kids Who Love Princesses

These are the perfect shows to stream while wearing a tiara.

From their fancy ball gowns to their glittering tiaras, there is just something about a princess that makes my heart swoon. What little kid doesn’t dream at some point of being involved in all of the regal fanfare that a princess gets to experience? These 13 shows for kids who love princesses are full of majestic tales fit for royalty. (Or, you know, just royalty-loving kiddos.)

When I gave birth to my first son, I thought that having a baby boy meant missing out on the fun of all things princess-themed. What I didn’t account for was that eventually, my wild and crazy toddler son would get hooked on the Disney Junior show Sophia the First. The show is admittedly charming, and he loved all of the music and silly characters, but I loved that even as a boy mom, I got to experience a little bit of that sparkly princess magic. (Even if it only lasted a short while before he moved on to Paw Patrol.)

If your kid just can’t get enough of the royal lifestyle, they’ll love these television shows all about princesses. Now, go dig that tiara out of their toy box and get to streaming. (And maybe prepare yourself for having to be the evil queen in their games of pretend.)
