My family and I checked out Disney’s latest film “Frozen” over the Thanksgiving weekend. My daughters loved it. They can’t stop singing “Let it go,” which is one of the songs from the film. My wife and I enjoyed the film as well. The film centers around two sisters, Elsa and Anna. Elsa is the older sister, who has a magical power. She can command ice and snow. The movie has a lot of singing and action. It is a great movie for the entire family.
My daughters pretend to be Elsa and Anna and make up their own adventures. They let me play as my favorite character in the film, Olaf. He is an enchanted snowman, who was a riot in the film.
Since seeing the movie my daughters wanted everything and anything that dealt with the film. From pajamas to toys, they made sure that everything “Frozen” was on the top of their Christmas wish list. My wife and I were inundated with requests left and right for all sorts of toys and clothes. While there are many “cool” things to choose from we didn’t want to go overboard. We selected a few toys from the “Frozen” toy line. Here are my thoughts on two of the toys, which we got for them for Christmas.
Anna and Elsa 10-inch Dolls
My daughters have a few Disney dolls, but they would love to see if St. Nick could bring them the Anna and Elsa dolls. The two main characters have a rocky relationship. Anna doesn’t know why she can’t hang out with her sister. She hopes one day to get back to the way things were when they were kids.
“Frozen” has the singing talents of Kristen Bell (Anna) and Idina Menzel (Elsa). Throughout the film the main characters are belting out songs left and right. These Anna and Elsa dolls help you recreate those fun movie moments.
Both Elsa and Anna are dressed in, as my oldest says, “glamorous” and “beautiful” gowns. To add with the theme of the film about two sister reuniting, the dolls will light up when you hold Anna’s or Elsa’s hands. Once you do that the dolls will also play music. When the hands of both dolls are held together, the two sisters will light up and play music together.
Each dolls sells for around $29.99 and can be picked up at any retail store.
Disney Frozen Castle and Ice Palace Playset
All dolls need a place to hang their hat right? For the “Frozen” dolls the Castle and Ice Palace playset is just that. The set expands to showcase the two major settings in the film. One is of their castle in the kingdom of Arendelle and the other is the Ice Palace that Elsa creates to live in solitude.
I know my daughters will love reenacting scenes from the film in this playset. One of them can be Anna on the castle side of things as Elsa belts out a few songs in her Ice Palace. The set comes with items that are from the movie. It has furniture and play pieces, including a throne, bed, chaise, vanities, mountain slide and my favorite, an Olaf figure.
This playset costs $99.99 and I think that Santa will be in charge of delivering that toy.
