UK parents advertise for a nanny who has to be permanently in Disney Princess character to care for twin girls.

The couple want the female employee to pick their five-year-old twin girls up from school, cook dinner and put the kids to bed dressed as characters like Rapunzel, Frozen’s Princess Anna and Cinderella.

Posting an ad on Childcare.co.uk, the mum explained: “We are looking for someone who can commit to a character and create a really fun atmosphere in our home. But also won’t be afraid to be a disciplinarian if the twins are naughty or act out — they can be little terrors at times!

“The right person will have a real creative flare as well as a passion for all things Disney and will be able to share that love of those characters with our girls.”

They’re also expected to work afternoons and evenings, Tuesday to Friday, doing “Disney-related activities” like baking, singing and arts and crafts with the girls, shares The Sun.

The mum added: “Like most 5-year-olds, our girls are obsessed with Disney and we feel this would be the best way to communicate some important values.

“We know this isn’t a normal request for nannies.

“However we think it would be a great way to teach our girls about things like determination, compassion, fearlessness and ambition from strong yet relatable female role models”.

The parents are offering a £40,000 ($A52,000) salary and will pay to hire each Disney princess costume.

The mum concluded: “We think it’s a great opportunity for someone to get really creative and add a little magic to our girls’ lives!”

Would you be up for the job?

  • Ideal job for someone who likes to dress up and act. If the parents are paying then go for it.

  • If they want to pay for it, so what. No one is going to take the job unless they’re willing to do it. It’s no big deal really. Just a different type of work uniform. Their reason is a positive one.

  • Absolutely ridiculous.

  • Interesting job requirement, wouldn’t it be hard to look after 2 little children while dressed up in a costume though, from a purely functional and practical aspect, I’d wonder.

  • How absolutely ridiculous, they are in la la land, I would not be up for the job, no way.

  • How funny!
    I agree with most others that that sounds over the top, I don’t think it would be great for the kids.
    But hey? Sounds kind of fun

  • I think that’s totally crazy. Are they living in some sort of fantasy world? Saying that, I’d put my hand up, I’d love to be a Disney princess every day!

  • That’s a big ask for someone to dress up do the parents not realise you can create a fun atmosphere at home being themselves
    I think the kids would be confused or spoilt

  • Wow, I suppose this would be very special for these little girls. But I could only imagine this is the beginning of them getting everything they want and that’s never good.

  • Um, this is one of the most bizarre things I have ever read. Why? Why? Why? I think they’re all a little bit nuts.

  • over the top!!! I cant imagine doing house chores in these clothes either. it would be okay for a weekend or 1-2hrs of having fun few afternoon a week but not permit. Even though the money is good, I wouldn’t take that job. its more of the parents that should be bonding with their children dressed as that!

  • What a bizarre advertisement – I certainly wouldn’t take the job.

  • WOW this is a terrible example of parenting. Will the parents then want to nanny to dress up as an animal or some other thing if the children wanted that? Maybe as a dress up day or week but permanently is a tad over the top.

  • I think it’s a bit over the top and degrading. We should be able to dress how we want and I think the image they’re creating for their daughters is all wrong women can do anything they want and are more than carers for children who can bake, sing and do craft.

  • Are these children going to relate to reality not just fantasy? Many of that age and older believe those characters are real life for a few years. Who will have the job of making the children understand the difference if that happens. I know a child who at 10 years old still believed Harry Potter was real, not just a story.
