What We Like About LEGO Disney Princess Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle
The best thing about the holidays is spending time with the kids and helping them figure out and enjoy their new toys. When kids start to approach those tween years, there are fewer and fewer toys that parents and kids can enjoy as much together. LEGO is one of those toys that remains a timeless classic.
That’s what makes Princess Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle so great. At 292 pieces, it is not the biggest or the most complicated set out there. But it will keep both children and parents busy for hours assembling and playing with the set. With two minifigures and Olaf, there is a lot of variety built into the LEGO Disney Princess Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle.
The included accessories, from the ice cream bar to the sleigh make it an entertaining play set, with many creative opportunities for younger children. The great thing about LEGO is that once the Frozen appeal has run its course, the toy still has life. Time to ignite the creative side and incorporate into a larger LEGO collections for even more enjoyment.
What Others Are Saying About LEGO Disney Princess Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle
It is hard to find people criticizing the LEGO Disney Princess Sparkling Ice Castle. Many parents reviewing the set online enjoy the value it has as an item for parent-child play time. Young Frozen fans seem to really enjoy the complexity and attention to detail in the set.
