If you’ve ever worked in retail, especially in an industry that caters to merchandise for kids in any way, you’ve probaby heard the worlds “You’ve ruined Christmas!”. Heck, back in the day when I worked at Entertainment Earth, no holiday was complete until we heard it at least once.
But the demand for Frozen merchandise has apparently unleashed hell on Disney because the supply has dried up. People on eBay are selling Elsa dolls for up to $1750 bucks and parents are losing their ever lovin’ minds on the official Disney Store Facebook page.
Obviously, Disney didn’t anticipate that they would need to make Elsa and Anna dolls for pretty much every child on the planet and now people are willing to sell body parts for a toy for their little Susie.
It really is amazing to see the level of outrage. It reminds me of the Cabbage Patch insanity back in the day.
So if you have Frozen merchandise, you’re a very special snowflake. Enjoy that. If not, head after the break to see what you can look forward to at your local mall.
