Frozen merchandise shortage is a big problem for parents

The shortage comes as a result of Disney underestimating the demand for Frozen toys, after its last few films, Brave, Tangled and The Princess and the Frog, failed to make much of a dent at the box office. Frozen, for whatever reason, does not have the same problem, and stores are struggling to keep up with the demand.

But wait there's more! To what lengths are desperate parents going to get the Frozen toys their children covet so highly? Maternity-wear designer Rosie Pope tells the Post that a friend of hers—who works at Disney even—paid $1,200 for an Elsa doll on eBay, after promising her daughter a Frozen-themed birthday party. Shannon Russo-Pollack says she went to 42 stores while at Walt Disney World, looking for an Elsa dress. Russo-Pollack's husband eventually resorted to Amazon, where he dropped $830 on Frozen merch.

Donna Ladd told the Post that she got lucky and found an Olaf toy while on a trip to Italy, but that her son isn't allowed to leave the house with it for fear that other crazed mothers will steal it. "Anywhere I was, at the Met, at the supermarket, all the mothers were going crazy screaming, 'Oh my God, I can’t believe you got it!'" she told the paper. "They were asking me if they could borrow the doll for a few days ... I feel like I had a bag no one else could get." Some mothers are even pulling the my-kid-is-sick card:

"People have gotten into physical fights in the morning," says one Disney Store employee, who asked not to be named.
Frozen: Inside Disney's billion-dollar social media hit

In 2011, Disney asked husband and wife songwriting team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez – the maestro behind Avenue Q and The Book of Mormon – to work on their new animation, Frozen. Very loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, it would tell the tale of two orphaned princesses: Anna, a beautiful, loving optimist, and Elsa, her jealous, blue-skinned, spiky-haired villain of a sister, who uses her icy powers to launch a vicious attack on the kingdom, accompanied by an army of evil snowmen.

But the Lopezes saw things differently. To them, Elsa was simply a scared girl struggling to control and come to terms with her gift. So when they came to write her big number Let it Go, they decided to create what Anderson-Lopez has described as “an anthem that said, ‘Screw fear and shame, be yourself, be powerful.’”

“The minute we heard the song for the first time,” says Jennifer Lee, the film’s co-director and screenwriter, “I knew that I had to rewrite the whole movie.”

Went to the local Disney Store (Chicago surburbs) to get an Anna ragdoll for my niece for Easter. The castmember said the only Frozen item they have in the ENTIRE STORE was xs pajamas. That's how it is company-wide, she said.

(Plenty of Sofia the First stuff)

'Frozen' Spends 10th Week at No. 1 On Billboard 200; Sales Climb Past 2 Million

The unstoppable soundtrack to Disney's "Frozen" continues its run atop the Billboard 200 as it clocks a 10th nonconsecutive week at No. 1. The set sold 133,000 copies in the week ending April 13, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That's down 11 percent compared with the previous frame, when it sold 149,000 at No. 1.

The album’s cumulative sales also climb past the 2 million mark, as its additional 133,000 copies bring its to-date sum to 2.1 million.

"Frozen" is now one of just 11 albums to have spent at least 10 weeks at No. 1 since the chart started using SoundScan's point-of-sale data on May 25, 1991. Four of those 11 albums also happen to be soundtracks: “Frozen,” Whitney Houston's "The Bodyguard" (20 weeks at No. 1), "Titanic" (16 weeks) and "The Lion King" (10 weeks).

In addition, "Frozen" now ties "The Lion King" for the most weeks at No. 1 for an animated film soundtrack.
The Frozen soundtrack has hit double platinum now.

At this point somebody should start organizing "The Church of Elsa." We'd give Scientology a run for its money.

I think it has become more of a cult now.

Anna really deserves more attention than she gets though, she was a great character as well.
