Buying Guide for Frozen Toys
Why buy Frozen toys?
The world of Arendelle’s magic has inspired children worldwide to sing and play as if they had their own magical powers, just like Elsa or Anna’s adventurous spirit. Whether your child loves dolls, figurines, or playing dress-up, and they love Frozen, you may want to consider buying them a Frozen toy for their next birthday or the next big celebration in their lives.
What should you consider in Frozen toys?
- Age: Consider the age of the child you’re buying for in order to choose an appropriate toy for them. For example, plastic dolls can have outfit pieces that are choking hazards for young children. These changeable dolls are best for kids above toddler age as they understand not to put them in their mouths. Soft dolls are appropriate for toddlers as they don’t feature hard items that can be swallowed or cause harm.
- Price: Dolls with special features like extra outfits, brushable hair, or talking will be more expensive than the classic doll but provide for more interaction between your child and the doll. Playsets with multiple pieces or moving elements will be more costly, so look for toys with quality plastic material and special design details.
- Characters: If your child has a favorite Frozen character they adore, opt for a doll replica or costume so that they can roleplay as that figure and recreate the movie’s adventures. Children who enjoy the movie and all its quirky characters will enjoy full playsets that allow them to give life to all of the Disney characters.
Why is Frozen so popular?
The two Frozen movies showcase magical adventures, quirky characters, and loving friendships. Elsa’s ice powers are something that young children can’t get enough of and want to imitate, and Anna’s courage is second to none. Olaf, Christoff, and Sven make children and adults laugh, and the whole cast of characters has a ton of heart. The music is brilliant, and the happy ending is everything you could hope for.
