Since our preordered FROZEN DVD showed up on my doorstep three weeks ago, we have watched it no less than 28 times. Yes, that’s once per day. And last week, on our road trip to DC, my children watched it twice, back to back.
They know all the songs. They adore all the characters. They recite lines while they play.
My son thinks it’s awesome. My daughter? OBSESSED.
I got her a baby Sven stuffed animal for her birthday and I thought she was going to keel over from happiness. Now we’ve been sent FOUR books, an Elsa doll, an Elsa dress-up dress AND an Elsa wand, compliments of some awesome PR reps. Miss E. is in heaven.
We even have an app.
It’s crazy but awesome at the same time. Disney has done a wonderful job of tapping into FROZEN’s insane popularity. (If we could just find a stuffed Olaf, I’d be a happy camper!)
The books are fantastic and are aimed at all different age levels.
Frozen: A Sister More Like Me: This jacketed picture book features an original story about Anna and Elsa, the film’s two sisters, as well as illustrations by one of the artists who worked on the film. My kids like that they get to hear from both sisters (each perspective is written in a different font and color) and I like the moral of the story.
Frozen Read-Along Storybook and CD: I’m going to just come out and say it. Sometimes I get tired of reading the same book over and over. With the read-along book, we simply pop in the CD and voila! the kids are enamored with the story and I get a bit of a break.
Frozen: The Junior Novelization: This novel retells the whole story and is perfect for my five year old. We’ve been reading chapter books with him at bedtime.
Frozen: A Tale of Two Sisters: This novel retells the story of sisters Anna and Elsa in this 32 page Step Into Reading Level Two reader which brings the adventurous tale of Frozen to early readers ages 4-6. It’s the perfect length to keep my three year old engage, plus my five year old can sound out words and try to read along.
Then there’s the toys – the coveted dresses and dolls. My Facebook and Twitter feed has been full of frantic moms and dads in search of these elusive products. Once they arrive in stores, they’re gone. No one seems to be able to keep them in stock.
Amazon has a Disney Frozen Elsa Doll & Toddler Dress Gift Set for $58, which isn’t bad for the set. If you want to add a little extra something, you can snag Elsa’s Musical Snow Wand. (Just be careful, it has come close to bonking a few people in the face. It’s pretty heavy.)
I’m not sure how long we’ll be FROZEN crazy. I have a feeling it will last quite awhile, but I don’t mind. It’s a good movie (even if I have seen it 20 or 30 times). Now excuse me while I go and play Anna.
