Ob­jects of Our Af­fec­tions

Al­though Dis­ney’s Frozen won’t ar­rive in the­aters un­til later this month, col­lec­tors are al­ready clam­or­ing to get their hands on all kinds of sweet tie-in toys, books and col­or­ful mer­chan­dise re­lated to the lav­ish 3-D pro­duc­tion. We love the beau­ti­ful The Art of Frozen book, penned by bril­liant his­to­rian and An­imag con­trib­u­tor Charles Solomon (Dis­ney Edi­tions, $40) as well as the charm­ing Lit­tle Golden Book adap­ta­tion (Ran­dom House, $3.59) for preschool­ers. Then, there are all the quirky toys and play sets, in­clud­ing Olaf the Snow­man and Sven the Moose plush toys, the glam Elsa doll that ac­tu­ally changes col­ors and the mem­o­rable sound­track (which fea­tures 32 tracks, in­clud­ing “Let It Go,” the big show­stop­per by Id­ina Men­zel, and Olaf’s hi­lar­i­ous “In Sum­mer” per­formed by Josh Gad). If you have any girls in the house, they’ll be singing those num­bers all through the hol­i­day sea­son, so you’d bet­ter learn to love them.
