One of the most successful LEGO Disney Princess sets has been the #41062 LEGO Disney Princess Frozen Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle, which was first released back in 2015. So it was surprising and interesting to see that LEGO decided to replace it with a set that is even bigger and better; the #41148 LEGO Disney Princess Frozen Ice Palace. And there are two other LEGO Disney Frozen sets released as well! So let’s take a closer look. 🙂
➡ #41148 LEGO DISNEY PRINCESS FROZEN ICE PALACE: This palace takes sparkliness to a whole other level! It uses the same color combination of white, translucent-light-blue, lavender, and light-aqua as the previously released #41062 LEGO Disney Princess Frozen Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle, which means that the two sets can be seamlessly combined. The sparkliness is achieved by some of the translucent pieces having glitter embedded in them, and by sparkly stickers. So beautiful! The set also comes with some lovely play features that you can check out in the video-review below. Here is the official description: Build a grand and glittering Ice Palace for Elsa and feel the magic and adventure with the special sliding bridge and revolving staircase functions. There’s so much detail inside and out to help recreate scenes from Disney’s Frozen and Frozen Fever, or to create new and exciting stories with these much-loved characters. Includes Elsa and Anna mini-dolls plus Olaf, Marshmallow and four Snowgies. Elsa’s Magical Ice Palace measures over 12” (31cm) high, 11” (30cm) wide and 7” (19cm) deep. 701 pieces. Price: $79.99 – BUY HERE
:arrow #41147 LEGO DISNEY PRINCESS FROZEN ANNA’S SNOW ADVENTURE: This is a small, but lovely set with Anna, her horse, and a couple of structures. Even though the buildings are small, they are full of very nice pieces; printed 1×6 tiles with a decorative pattern, gems, light-blue flowers, a printed chocolate bar, light-aqua and medium-nougat parts, white leaf elements, and more. I also really like this version of Anna with her pretty dress and hair. Here is the official description: Enter the world of Disney Frozen and join Anna as she takes a break on her journey to visit her sister. With a feeding station for her horse and a campfire to make hot chocolate, they have everything they need to rest and refuel. The sleeping shelter has an opening function for easy play inside. Includes an Anna mini-doll, plus her horse. Shelter measures over 2” (7cm) high, 3” (10cm) wide and 3” (8cm). 153 pieces. Price: $19.99 – BUY HERE
➡ #10736 LEGO JUNIORS ANNA AND ELSA’S FROZEN PLAYGROUND: This set is not under the standard LEGO Disney Princess line, but under LEGO Juniors, meant for younger kids who are transitioning over from LEGO DUPLO. It is basically a cheaper and simpler version of the larger palace. However because the playground has the same color-scheme as the other sets, they can be easily combined to make a larger layout. A noteworthy feature of the LEGO Juniors line is that all the decorations are printed. So that nice swirly design you see at the front, the 2×2 round tiles with ice crystals, and the designs on the medium-azure base are all prints. And you also get a cute baby polar bear that only appeared in one other set to date. Here is the official description: Play in a magical winter playground with LEGO Juniors Disney Frozen´s Anna and Elsa, featuring an Easy to Build ice palace with slide, bench and table, ramp for skiing, rotating fountain, snowball-firing catapult and an opening treasure chest with hidden ice crystals. LEGO Juniors is an age-appropriate build and play experience for ages 4-7. Includes Anna and Elsa mini-doll figures and a polar bear cub. Ice palace measures over 7” (18cm) high, 7” (20cm) wide and 5” (15cm) deep. 94 pieces. Price: $24.99 – BUY HERE
I really like that the Frozen palaces all have the same color-scheme, so they can be combined to make a much larger layout. Even if you are not a fan of Frozen, the pieces can be very useful for any icy/snowy creation. There are no any other sets with so many sparkly, crystal-like pieces. The mini-dolls are also very nice, and come with some sweet new hairpieces that can also be used on regular LEGO minifigures. All in all, this is a delightful collection that I would highly recommend. The sets should be available at all LEGO retailers, and are also listed at the Online LEGO Shop.
