5 Plus Size Characters That Help Teach Us About Fat Acceptance

Plus size characters don’t have to be moral and perfect. We all can use our imaginations to help teach children about fatness and the ways that fat people are socialized.

While these plus size characters aren’t perfect, I think they are worth exploring with children.

Elviria from Secret Magic Control Agency

Elviria is a baker in the Kingdom. She appears in every scene in pink and is as beautiful as can be. She was exiled from the kingdom for doing magic to try to persuade the King to marry her. As a way to seek revenge, she punishes the entire Kingdom.

Trolls Holiday

Prince Gristle and Bridget are the cutest couples. It was just a joy watching them fall in love with each other. In the film, we get to see the two on their first date and it’s the cutest ever. 

Shrek and Fiona from Shrek  

We found love in a hopeless place! The story of Shrek and Fiona finding love is just beautiful in itself. Princess Fiona was held captive in a castle with a fire-breathing dragon. Shrek and his sidekick donkey go there to save her. Shrek and Fiona fall in love and we learn that Fiona is also an Olgar.

Biggie from Trolls World Tour

In Trolls World Tour, Biggie has a scene where Biggie gets tired of following the Queen and prioritizes his women’s needs. When he leaves, he returns home to find that everything was destroyed. He gets a group together to go back and help save the day.
