Disney Consumer Products held its 2014 Holiday Showcase in New York today, giving Disney fans a sneak peek into what will be available to retailers this holiday season. Toys from the worlds of Marvel and Star Wars are sure to be big, along with Disney’s own animated films “Frozen” and “Big Hero 6.”
Frozen still reigns supreme at the Disney Store, and this fall will be no different.

New this season is Frozen’s Snow Glow Elsa doll. Her dress lights up and she sings “Let It Go” in one of 25 different languages.
Also new this fall are the Anna and Elsa additions to the Animators’ Collection line, Hide-and-Hug Olaf plush (Disney’s answer to Elf on the Shelf, it seems) and accompanying storybook, and the Crystal Kingdom Vanity set.
Other Frozen products include the Olaf Snow Cone Maker, Mix-Em-Up Olaf (a Mr. Potato-head style figure), and an Elsa coin bank that lights up and plays “Let It Go” when a coin is inserted.
The latest Limited Edition Designer Dolls will be available in Disney Stores in September.
From the Disney Junior line-up we’ll see Dance With Me Clover, featuring a singing (and dancing) Clover from Sofia the First, Sofia the First Deluxe Dance Mat (a Dance Dance Revolution-style floor mat that plays 3 songs from the TV series for young Disney fans to dance along to), and two new versions of the classic Operation board game—one themed to Doc McStuffins, and one centered on Jake and the Neverland Pirates.
Disney and LEGO have partnered up to release sets for Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Disney Princesses. Previously, Disney Princesses have only been available as Duplo sets, which are geared toward younger audiences. These two new sets are firsts for the 6-12 age group.
New on Disney XD this fall is the animated TV series Star Wars Rebels and there is plenty of new merchandise to accompany its release, such as new 30-inch Inquisitor and Stormtrooper figures and 20- inch figures featuring Darth Vader and Ezra, a new character to the series. The 20-inch size is new for Star Wars action figures.
