Frozen fever doesn’t seem to be dying down. Since its release in November of 2013, everything about the movie from its characters, music and locations has been an obsession for Disney fans. Initially the themed toys were slow to come, but over the past 6 months that has changed – Big time! While at Toy Fair this year Frozen merchandise was everywhere but some of my favorite toys debuted this year come from Mattel.

Since her debut in 2012 Sofia The First has been one of Disney Junior’s most popular shows. A little girl who becomes a princess when her mom marries the King, Sofia is a bit of a ‘people’s princess’, because she struggles with the formalities of royalty.

The race is on! Every year parents head to the store manned with their lists, only to find their kid’s top selections out of stock. We’ve all been there.
