Disney Frozen Fever Dolls and Lego Ice Castle Review

Frozen was such a fantastic Walt Disney film which both my girls really enjoyed - and I'll admit I would watch it again quite happily too! It led to instant success for branded merchandise, and even now, some time later there are still new product options coming out. Well, it is nearly Christmas...

My girls were delighted to review the Frozen Fever Anna and Elsa doll set. These come from the animated Frozen Fever short film which came out last year alongside the new Cinderella movie and they do look adorable.

Both dolls have poseable arms, legs and head, and realistic hair. They are in beautiful summer dress outfits with matching shoes. As usual, my girls found the shoes a little fiddly but I'm sure for those children with patience out there (where are they?!) they are a welcome addition.

My one top tip if you are buying these as a Christmas present for some children would be to try and get into the packaging and loosen the dolls yourself first. It was quite a challenge... and maybe one which would wear any patience thin. Worth it for the contents though! The set is fairly priced at £25.95 and available from

The second item they had to review was one of the toys from the Dream Toys Top 12 list; Elsa's Sparkling Ice Castle by Lego. This item looks so impressive in its packaging, and really doesn't disappoint once you get it out of the box. It's a three storey castle with a secret staircase, bed and icicle tree, then a separate ice crema bar, sleigh and ice hill. Queen Elsa, Princess Anna and Olaf mini figures are included, along with lots of other small accessories such as skis, ice skates, stickers, tiaras etc. The children are kept entertained by building it initially, but it also does have lasting value as a playset. It's always lovely to see children's imagination running overtime when they have such a brilliant set to start from.

Commanding the usual slightly high price to be expected from such a well known, in-demand brand, Elsa's Sparkling Ice Castle by Lego retails at £34.99 on You may want to search around for a bargain on this before Christmas though...
