When I brought this home for my daughter she literally ripped the doll out of my hands. She enjoyed playing with it on the kitchen floor and really loved how Anna's leg moved during motion. The only thing my daughter didn't like is she tips easily.I would recommend this for anyone girl who likes frozen they will love it.
Cons: skating motion difficult for 5 year old to control
My 5 year old daughter loved this toy, even before she got to open the box. She quickly concluded that this is "a Barbie" due to the doll's size and features. Anna's costume is beautiful and well made. You can have Anna "skate on ice" or "rollerblade" by adding or removing the skate. The skating motion is fun, although it was a little hard for my 5 year old to work. You have to hold the doll just so in order to get all the motions. That was a little frustrating. Nevertheless, my daughter was very proud to get her own Frozen doll and happy to play with her friends and fellow Frozen fans. I can see her keeping and treasuring it for a long time, even after the novelty of "skating" wears off.
Cons: she only does 3 specific moves over and over
My girls were very excited to "see" Anna skate. At first they were under the impression she would slide across the floor by being pushed. They didn't realize they needed to continue holding onto the little snowflake that fits around the skate in order to control the skating aspect. They were pleasantly surprised to see that she actually moved through a series of moves when they did so. My youngest got a little frustrated with not being able to get Anna to do the moves but once I showed her she needed to keep pressure down on the piece that attatches to the skate she got the hang of it.
My daughter loves this doll! She loves ice skating and loves making Anna glide back and forth. While she's gliding, Anna puts on a little show, moving her hands back and forth. I was a little disappointed that the doll didn't skate on it's own, but if your kids love Frozen, they will love this doll!
Pros: cute design, like how the body and arms move
Cons: doesn't stand on own
My daughter became quickly bored with this. It skates better without the skirt and cape on. It doesn't stand up straight even with the snowflake under the skate. It was fun for a couple of minutes. My daughter quickly set aside to play with her Frozen castle instead. Still glad that we have it, since it is a Frozen item.
Exactly what it should be! Will definitely provide my daughter with hours and hours of joy!

Review 11 for DISNEY Frozen Ice Skating Anna Doll
Anna Skating Doll
Date:August 21, 2014
Pros: High quality
I could not find this in my local store and was happy that it arrived so quickly. I also checked several online sites and it was not available. The price was also the same price as the sold out ones that I had checked online.
