The cold never bothered me anyway

It feels funny writing about this so long after the movie has come out – I don’t feel particularly current – but it’s amazing the grip Frozen has over 4 year old girls.

    not only 4 year olds – Sofi and Paigie cannot sing this song in repose – it’s a kind of madness that overcomes them. I”ve seen litle girls singing it in the supermarket – virtually chained to their trollies by their fathers (many are humming along) lest they run off to the frozen food section to free the samosas – you’ve definitely captured (if that word can ever be applied to that song) the change in the mind-weather.

    Even my 3yo boy belts ‘Let it go’ in a tone deaf manner occasionally. It’s clearly a powerful craze!

    Agreed it’s not just 4 year old girls. We visited family recently and were treated to a performance which included wig with blond plait and the dress itself and a backing track! Not being parents ourselves we had no idea what was going on, but it did explain why every child from the 3 year old to the 15 year old kept saying ‘let it go’ in what had seemed a random fashion up to that point.

    The Frozen phenomenon has actually broken a lot of barriers – geography, language, age, race, gender (my kid, a boy and some others I know like to belch out the Frozen songs as well and asks me to sing along with him and with actions..)

    I have an entry in my blog that mentions Frozen as well.. thought I could add a link here:

      I hadn’t thought about it breaking all those barriers before. Nice share!

        True – Emma Jean – if you have a spare lifetime – have a look on youtube – under ‘small children sing Frozen – mostly girls singing of course – but girls and fathers (hopefully their own fathers – and I never thought about keeping the dads happy – naive me!) seems to be a popular post – so at once a phenomenon and a little creepy!

        Thanks Emma Jean.. I guess it’s just one of the powers of Walt Disney.. 😉

    Sarah, you have cast ice into my heart. We are just escaping the grip of Frozen (at one stage I was waking up in the middle of the night with ‘let it goooooooooooooooo’ going around and around my head – and now it’s back! Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
    It is scary the way kids are so into it and the blonde bombshell moment in which Elsa embraces her powers and suddenly becomes the foxy ice maiden is truly terrible (my husband says they put that part in the movie to keep all the dads happy). I have waged a long campaign to boost Anna’s popularity (‘Anna is clever and brave AND she has shiny brown hair like you and Mummy’) but it’s a hard sell. Still, at least it’s not Barbie, right?

      It’s not Barbie and it’s not a movie that resolves itself in romance, like most Disney movies… although of course they can’t resist the romance as a sideline! And yeah, I find myself singing it despite myself, but that is counteracted by my 8yo son yelling at me every time he catches me doing so!

    Speaking of breaking barriers, you never would have expected these folks to be so into the song.

    Regards,

    I got so bored with this at the childcare centre I work at that I found the different language versions of ‘Let it Go’ on youtube just to get some variety – we’ve got kids with a few different native/home languages so it mixes things up nicely. After hearing the Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Tamil, Hindi, Malay, French Spanish and German versions (among others) I’m rather disappointed there doesn’t seem to be a te reo version 😦
