New (pricey) Frozen merchandise unveiled
We did a story last month about the continued popularity of merchandise surrounding Disney's smash hit movie "Frozen." Eight months after the movie hit theaters, manufacturers are still struggling to keep up, leaving retailer shelves empty and parents desperately searching for anything emblazoned with Anna, Elsa or Olaf.
But "for the first time in forever," Kohl's sent out an e-mail blast this morning trumpeting a new line of Frozen merchandise hitting shelves.
But hang onto your carrots, Kristoff, because you haven't had sticker shock this bad since you tried to buy a rope at Wandering Oaken's Trading Post.
There's a beautiful, reversible Anna and Elsa charm that can be worn on a necklace or bracelet. Too bad it's $100.
Too pricey? You can get Olaf for $85.
Or a non-descript snowflake for $55.
How about something more practical, like a cup?
They'll set you back $18.99 apiece. But don't worry, it's a steal compared to the original price of $27.
How about something really practical, like underwear?
There was no sign of the elusive Frozen backpack kids are dreaming about for back to school. But there was a link to the sought-after 12-inch Anna doll--out of stock, of course.
