Lego has the ability to make and sell Disney Frozen themed sets, and yet they only have one release so far. It seems that anything with the Frozen logo is instantly popular, and sells out in no time. This theme is a license to print money. The first Lego set is called Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle (41062), it is $39.99 and has 292 pieces. There are also three exclusive figures: Elsa, Anna, and Olaf. The piece to part ratio is extremely high, making this one of the more expensive sets for what you get. So is the Frozen Castle worth it? Check out the full review, by mostlytechnic, over on Eurobricks: here.
The full set is actually a bit different then what you would expect. The design of the castle does not reflect what is in the film, and is a weird white and transparent blue. This is more of a Frozen mountain then a castle. But, for most people that won’t matter, because the figures are what they want. And, Lego really went all out. The resemblance to their movie counterpart is extremely close for Lego figures. Elsa and Anna look good in Lego. Olaf looks good, but is not as special.

Lego has had a massive hit with their Lego Friends theme. They quickly expanded it to include a new Disney Princess theme, and an upcoming Elves theme. The first wave of Disney Princess is currently on shelves, and a second new wave will be released in 2015. This release will include the super popular films Frozen and Aladdin. These new sets will more then likely sell out quickly.
Lego Disney Princess, Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle (41062) is based off of the Ice Castle in Frozen and will include Elsa and Anna. There is even a Lego Olaf.
Lego Disney Princess, Sleeping Beauty’s Royal Bedroom (41060) is the smallest set and features the famous spinning wheel.
Lego Disney Princess, Jasmine’s Exotic Palace (41061) is a small set that features Aladdin’s Jasmine and the cutest Rajah. The Gennie’s lamp is also hiding out.
Lego Disney Princess, Ariel’s Undersea Palace (41063) is the big set for the theme. Featuring Ariel, Sebastian, and Flounder from the Little Mermaid.
Usually these Lego Friends, and Lego Princess sets can be found on the “girls” isle at stores. Although some places (like Target) have been placing these with the rest of their Lego sets. Hopefully more stores will do this, as it makes finding these sets a whole lot easier.
