The kingdom of Arendelle beckons yet again, as Frozen 2 blows into theaters with all the subtlety of a blizzard. We consider ourselves connoisseurs of all things Frozen, from vanities to STEM toys to a weird Olaf toy. Thus, we waded through the mountain (sorry, we can’t help the puns) of merch out there. And because fighting the powers of Elsa and Anna is not worth your time, energy, or futile efforts, here are our picks for the Frozen 2 toys that are least likely to have you wind up on muscle relaxers.
Lest you think we’re joking: There’s a certain Frozen 2 musical toy that’s so loud, when we turned it on, it terrified our entire office. Do you want that thing in your house? Pity the fool who does.
Let little Frozen fans have a great time with this playset. It lights up. And it plays that song but only that song.
This set, great for kids three and up, lets them create a snowy scene. The removable roller underneath the sleigh stamps Play-Doh snowflake patterns, and the molds on the side of the sleigh makes lanterns, trees, and characters.
Kids four and up can build an adventure toy wagon carriage for Elsa and Sven the reindeer. Sven! Sven! We love Sven!
The annoying part here is the size, but let’s face it, you’ll win Christmas with this thing. It has a moving balcony, lights that actually work, and seven fully furnished rooms with a piano, banquet table, and of course a throne chair.
Kids five up go on an actual on a storybook adventure with the Frozen 2 peeps while improving their drawing and listening skills. You do need an iPad to use this, though. Kids draw the characters and watch them come to glorious life on the screen.
This flannel nightgown is perfect for Frozen fans who want to curl up with Elsa and Anna and have sweet dreams of sisterhood. This has been tested on an actual toddler affiliated with Fatherly by virtue of her dad getting a bunch of Frozen stuff in the mail. This toddler loves said nightgown. It’s also called a “granny’ nightgown and you can kind of see why. You can also get this nightgown as part of a subscription to KidBox, which has a pretty solid Frozen 2 box that sets your kid up with decent swag.
Kids in kindergarten and beyond will dig this art kit, which comes with watercolors, metallic crayons, three glitter glue tubes (sorry, parents), a brush, stampers, coloring pages, and construction. And stickers, of course. Must have stickers. This set is also not bad for younger kids, too. The same Fatherly toddler who liked the nightgown also loved the markers that come with this Arts and Craft set. The reason? They’re not remotely messy.
