Parents Freaking Out Over "Frozen" Merchandise Shortage
Posted: April 19th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Despite both being hits, Disney's "The Princess and the Frog" and "Brave" didn't sell as many toys as the studio hoped. So not to get stuck with too much unsold merchandise, Disney made sure to keep a reasonable amount of "Frozen" toys in stores.

The problem is that "Frozen" became the 8th highest-grossing film of all time with over $1 billion in worldwide earnings. And parents are now finding themselves without "Frozen" toys, which is exactly what the kids want and the stores don't have enough of.

After leaving Disney stores disappointed, parents are paying as much as $1,000 for dolls and $400 for dresses on eBay and Amazon. And while the studio is scrambling to get more merchandise, parents are also attempting to trick Disney store employees into letting them buy the toys, despite the fact that there aren't any to buy.

"People have gotten into physical fights in the morning," said a Disney Store employee. "The kids cry, but the parents are the problem. They try to guilt us, say their daughters are sick. They have no shame. But I can't make it magically appear!"

Many experts are stepping in to comment on the situation, stating that parents are attempting to buy their children's love with these toys. And the strange thing is that these parents agree. "You want your kids to be happy, but at the same time, what are you willing to do, what are you willing to pay?" said an exasperated mother. "It's really dumb. We should probably just learn to say 'no' more often. But it's so difficult when they are so obsessed with the current movie."

It seems that mothers will have to wait a while before Disney has a chance to restock the many sold-out items, because it won't be until August that the toys will become available.
