LEGO Disney Princess Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle Review
One of the biggest selling points of this toy is it’s connection with the movie “Frozen”. Apart from this, the construction of staircase is cleverly thought-out along with the choice of color used for the bricks. A number of cute accessories have been included which makes the toy that much more complete. Although, the end result is small, kids would have fun building the toy for at least a couple of hours thanks to the number of pieces and some intricate pieces. The glittery wall elements are an icing on the cake which will definitively add to the imagination of the kids.
The major downside of this product is it’s retail price which is $39.99. Generally, LEGO charges 10 cents per piece which means this toy is priced almost $10 more. The castle could have been much bigger and more characters could have been included than just three. Moreover, some of the parts are too small for younger kids to handle. Since this toy is based on “Frozen” movie, one cannot help not comparing the toy with the movie. There are couple of things which added great value in the movie but are missing in the set for instance the doors to the upstairs of the castle, the chandelier and a snow monster. All these things could have made the toy more interesting to kids.
This toy is highly successful among buyers on amazon. Around 250 people have reviewed the product so far and about 85% of them have provided 5 stars, 13% gave 4 stars and the rest gave 3 stars. Many of them wanted to see the characters “Kristoff” and “Sven” to be included in the next version of the toy. Also, there were a number of them who felt the overall size of the castle is very small compared to the price tag.
Deals and Discounts
Amazon is giving away 12% discount on this toy which reduces the price by $4.99 thereby bringing the discounted price to $35. This is absolutely great because even with LEGO’s increased per piece rate, amazon customers would still be able to buy them close to earlier rates. After discount, the price of each piece comes to just 11 cents.
So, what are you waiting for? Gift the LEGO Disney Princess Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle to a child between 6-12 years of age and watch them get excited.
