If you have kids, then you probably have some Play-Doh sets around your house because they are one of the easiest ways to get creative with the kids. Our newest addition is the Frozen Ice Palace Toy because Carrigan is obsessed with Disney’s Frozen.
Who can blame her? Even though we’ve watched the movie hundreds of times, I still enjoy it!
Play-Doh Frozen Ice Palace Toy
This is not our first Disney Play Doh set but it is our first Frozen-themed one. The fact that is an Elsa Ice Palace Toy meant that it was only time before we’d buy it! If you have a little Elsa fan like we do, then this set is probably a good one to consider (with some adult help though).
Heads up that it really does require some adult assembly even though the set is labeled ages 3+.
What Comes in the Play-Doh Enchanted Ice Palace Toy Set?
- castle playset pieces
- cape cutter
- Olaf knife
- 2 cans of Play-Doh
- 2 cans of Play-Doh Sparkle
This Frozen Play Doh set comes with everything you need to just open it, assemble it, and play!
The Frozen Ice Palace Toy doesn’t come right out of the box to play with. Adult (or at least older sibling) assembly is definitely required. I’ll tell you more about that below.

Play-Doh Enchanted Ice Palace Toy
You can do a ton of things with this set:
• Press the levers to make Elsa spin around and push snow up through the base.
• Use the cape cutter and roller to make a cape for Elsa.
• Decorate the entire castle with icicles and snowflakes!
• Create many other shapes as most of the pieces have molds to create all sorts of icy, Frozen fun!
How to Set Up the Disney Frozen Castle Ice Palace Play Set
The Frozen Ice Palace toy set from Play-Doh comes with a pretty easy to follow instruction manual and there’s really only about four steps. You have to put the base together, then snap on the background, and the steps.
But beware! There’s one important thing to pay attention to so you don’t have a disappointed kid!
If you don’t realize that the castle part of the Frozen Ice Palace Toy is an extruder piece that pushes Play-Doh out to make it look like snow at the Elsa figure’s feet, you’ll end up having to take the set apart!
The instruction manual makes it look like you should make a ring of Play-Doh to place in that piece. The photo looks like a flat ring, but if you do that, you won’t have enough to push up through the base of the castle.
Check out what happened the first time we tried to make it snow with our Froze Ice Palace toy.
Because we didn’t have enough Play-Doh in the base, it was kind of challenging for her to get the levers going. But she finally did.
Carrigan was happy with the results but it didn’t quite look like the box! So the lesson is to put a big round doughnut of white Play-Doh in. No matter what the instruction booklet seems to show!
You also have to take the whole castle apart to refill the white Play-Doh. So just something to keep in mind when you’re getting it out play!
Make Elsa’s Cape!
In addition to making it snow all over the floor of the castle and all of the snowflake molds that seem to be found on every piece of the set, there is also a great cape cutter. Carrigan could even roll this one herself once we got her enough Play-Doh in the mold!
We thought Elsa figure was a great figure on her own. But it was fun to have the chance to add a cape to her ensemble.
We made it blue to go along with her dress, but with the different colors included in the kit, your kids can get as creative as they want.
The cape came out of the cutter fairly easily. Then you press it to some tabs on the back of the Elsa figure. It stayed on pretty well when we just had Elsa standing up.
We did discover that if you put Elsa on the castle (she spins when you use the levers), her cape may fall off! But no one here seemed to mind! We just stuck it back on and made her spin again!
