Disney Frozen Castle & Ice Palace Playset Review (Mattel)

What It Is

Kids can play out the story from Disney's new movie Frozen with the Disney Frozen Castle & Ice Palace Playset. This playset gives kids two castles in one. Open it up to reveal two play areas: Anna's home in Arendelle and Elsa's Ice Palace. The set also includes more than 10 movie-inspired accessories. Dolls are sold separately.

On Anna's side, there is a staircase that leads upstairs to a vanity with a chair and perfume bottle. Downstairs, the kitchen stovetop flips into a tabletop, and Anna can warm up by the pretend fire on the chaise with pink pillow. Elsa's side includes an "icy" throne with a translucent blue design. The vanity doubles as a bed and comes with a printed blanket. Flip the playset around to reveal a snowy mountain with a slide that Olaf the snowman figure, which is included, can speed down. The playset folds up when playtime is over, but not all the accessories fit inside the folded-up playset.

Is It Fun?

This two-in-one playset is a fun way for kids to reenact favorite scenes from Frozen or imagine all-new adventures for Anna and Elsa. Kids will like the surprise transformations within the playset (stovetop to table, vanity to bed), and they will want to add the dolls (sold separately) to fully engage with the playset and its many opportunities for narrative-based, open-ended play.

Who It’s For

The Disney Frozen Castle & Ice Palace Playset is for Frozen fans ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Assembly is required, and it took us 40 minutes to put together. It was a little hard to put together because some of the plastic pieces are a little flimsy and the picture instructions were not that clear.
