The magic of Frozen is more than a hit billion-dollar movie. Its longevity has almost taken it to that rare stratospheric status of Children’s Classic. Loosely based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale The Snow Queen, it was Disney-fied with a cast of quirky, feisty characters and memorable songs. The enduring power of Frozen has turned it into a party phenomenon long after its box office run. Young children love stories and movies which allow their imaginations to run wild.
The film tells the story of fearless Princess Anna who sets off on an epic journey alongside a rugged, thrill-seeking mountain man, his loyal pet reindeer, and a hapless snowman to find her estranged sister Snow Queen Elsa, whose icy powers have inadvertently trapped the kingdom in eternal winter, and break the spell. Part of the film’s attraction is its realistic shots, particularly the heavy snow and its interactions with the characters. The snow comes “alive”, in a sense.
When we first started writing about Frozen, almost none of these pretty party supplies were around. Now, there’s everything you can think of, from the Disney Frozen Party Game to Frozen Invitations, to balloons, table covers, plates, souvenir party cups and personal accessories. And they show no sign of waning in popularity.

Lollies for a Frozen inspired candy buffet naturally include marshmallows of all sizes and shapes. Apart from candy floss, it’s the lolly that most easily reminds us of pillowy snow. And a marshmallow monster!
Rock candy crystal sticks are another lolly with instant pizzazz for the theme. They look exactly like glittering icicles.
Lastly, don’t forget some shimmer:
