Frozen Sisters Giftset

Looking for Frozen Items, this is a cute Frozen Sister giftset that is in stock. I’ve found the hardest thing with the frozen items is having them stay in stock for very long. This has really maintained its price of $12.99 for quite a while and I don’t think it will go much less during the Holiday season.

  • Three favorite characters from the Disney film Frozen come together in one story gift set that will charm and delight fans of the film
  • Girls will recognize Anna’s Norwegian rosemaling-inspired design and Elsa’s signature snowflakes
  • Both girls also sport their iconic capes, Anna’s a sweet pink and Elsa’s a sheer ethereal white
  • The snowman Olaf, a beloved character friend, completes this set
