EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Follow Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven on an epic adventure to restore the Northern Lights in the new Disney Channel movie Frozen Northern Lights. In this four-part animated series, the Northern Lights fail to make their annual appearance, and Anna and Elsa discover that they must recharge Grand Pabbie's magical yellow crystal to help restore the luster of the Northern Lights over the kingdom of Arendelle.

Kids can play out the fun of the movie, and sing along to “Let It Go”, with the Disney Frozen Northern Lights Elsa doll. This doll imagines what Elsa would look like as a toddler, and it comes with a snowflake that interacts with the doll. On its own, the doll, dressed in a shimmery blue gown with snowy white sparkle, will talk and light up when kids press Elsa's necklace. But turn the snowflake to Interact mode and wave your hand over the snowflake to change the color of the snowflake and the light-up color of Elsa's dress. Elsa will also talk and play sound effects. If you hold your hand over the snowflake for longer than two seconds and keep it there, you'll hear the doll sing the chorus of “Let It Go” while Northern Lights-inspired lights appear on her dress.

There is also a Nightlight mode on the snowflake that makes soft Northern Lights-inspired colors appear for about eight minutes before going to sleep. The snowflake cannot interact with the doll in this mode.

Is It Fun?
Kids are really going to like the “magic” behind the doll and snowflake interaction. With just a wave of their hand, they can pretend to control the Northern Lights just like Elsa does in the new Frozen Northern Lights. But even if kids haven't seen the new Frozen movie, they'll still like playing and interacting with this Elsa doll. It's a new dress for the character that is very shiny and sparkly, and it shows what Elsa looked like as a toddler, which will really appeal to little kids who will like seeing a version of Elsa that looks like them. Plus, the lights and sounds bring the character to life to enhance the imaginative play.
Who It’s For
The Disney Frozen Northern Lights Elsa doll is for ages 3 and up. Frozen fans, whether or not they've seen the new Northern Lights movie, will really like collecting and playing with this new Elsa doll. The lights and sounds help bring the character to life to inspire lots of imaginative play. And who doesn't like singing along to “Let It Go”? 
What To Be Aware Of

The doll comes with three AAA batteries for the in-store try-me features, so you'll probably want to replace them before you play for best results. You will need three AAA batteries for the snowflake, though, and those are not included.

Our doll and snowflake came out of the box attached by wires. This is for the in-store try-me features, so make sure you disconnect the wires before you play.
