I had a surprise waiting for me when I got home today:
My Elsa and Anna Ice Skating Set from the Disney Store! I can't believe how fast it arrived!! I ordered it Monday and it's already here!
I have to give kudos to the Disney Store this time around. I've mentioned in past posts that I've had problems with getting squished boxes before. This time, my box arrived in perfect condition. :) I think they're getting much more careful about their packaging. :)
I love the cute picture on the back of the box.
The sides of the box:
The label on the front.
Here's a look at Elsa's blue ice skates.
I love Anna's light green boot ice skates. :)
I love the way their hands are posed in the box.
Anna's skirt detail
Elsa's ice skating dress appears to be pretty much identical to her original dress.
I had heard from other sources online that Anna's face was different than Classic Anna's.
Here's my original Classic Anna. It does some like there's a very slight difference in the facial shape. Also, Ice Skating Anna does not have her white streak (since at the end of the movie her streak was gone).
Here's a picture of the two of them as close together as I could get them through the box...
...and another with a bit more of them showing.
I found Ice Skating Elsa to be much more noticeably different.
Her hair is much flatter than my Classic Elsa's (pictured here), and her face is wider.
Another comparison picture.
At this point, I've decided to keep my Ice Skating dolls unopened. Yeah, I know...I'm not that great at keeping at things "mint in box". ;) I'm not promising they'll stay there forever, but I'd like to keep them boxed for a while until I'm sure I want them loose. ;)
I know that many of you were probably looking forward to a more detailed review of the dolls out of their box. I apologize if this is disappointing to you. If you'd like more detail of the dolls themselves, I'd recommend the following links:

The Christmas Squirrel has some great comparison pics of Classic and Ice Skating Anna and Classic and Ice Skating Elsa. :) (Be sure to check the rest of the photostream for other pics of the dolls.)
-drj1828 on Flickr
Drj1828 is one of my favorite Flickr users to check with when I want detailed pics of new Disney doll items. She (or he?) has A TON of deboxed Ice Skating Anna and Elsa pics. You can see one of Anna HERE and one of Elsa HERE. To see the others, just browse through the photostream.
Hope you enjoyed this mini review post. :) Will any of you be adding the Ice Skating Set to your Frozen collection?
