HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Wait, that’s not right. Merry Christmas! See when Frosty comes alive he has the tendency to shout “Happy Birthday!”, just because. I hope you’re having a Merry Christmas and I figure while you’re unwrapping Christmas presents from under the tree you can stop in and say hi to Frosty and me!


Frosty the Snowman is the big star of the show. You might notice that this is the Round 2 toys version, as opposed to the Forever Fun version. Round 2 turned into Forever Fun or got bought out or whatever. The figures are basically identical. So is there some magic in this old silk hat? Frosty comes alive after the cut.

Packaging:


The package here is similar to the Jack Frost figure but it has a bit more personality, IMO. The back of the package is different as it doesn’t include the newer figures. There have been minor tweaks to the card text as well.


It’s still a pretty attractive package all things considered.

Articulation:
Frosty has a surprising amount of articulation for a holiday figure. For starters he has a pair of ball jointed shoulders, cut wrists and unique peg cut joint legs that allow him to move his legs up and down. Frosty can boogie down.


Frosty the Snowman also has a neck cut to give him a little extra poseability.

Sculpt:
Frosty looks really good. His soft goods scarf works surprisingly well. He has a detachable corn cob pipe as well as a his broom. He also has a cool magnet in his head that helps his hat stay on. It works like a charm.


The rest of his sculpt is solid as ice. This looks like Frosty fresh from the cartoon, especially his eyes which have a bit of a goofy look to them. The big lug was always a little silly, which comes through in the sculpt. This guy’s sculpt definitely shines.


Everything is removable and when it’s all said and done he’d look a bit like the unanimated Frosty. Some of the joints and cuts do impede the sculpt a bit, but that’s to be expected with a design like this. It’s unquestioningly Frosty.

Accessories:
As I said before he comes with his hat, broom, corn pipe and scarf. It’s all really quite good. I do wish he could hold his broom a little better. Despite all that, he’s loaded up and ready for play or display.

Value:
The $8 you’d spend on Frosty is much easier to swallow than on some of the other figures. This guy is iconic and he makes the perfect Christmas display item or toy. You can replay your favorite Frosty adventures. It’s very cool to get all these Rankin/Bass characters finally.

Score Recap:
Packaging – 7
Sculpting – 8
Articulation – 8
Accessories – Hat, Scarf, Pipe, Broom
Value – 8
Overall – 8 out of 10


Frosty is an awesome figure. There’s no denying it. He can be a lot of fun for kids, he’s quality enough for collectors and overall he’s just a cool dude. REALLY COOL! See what I did there? Cause he’s made of snow. Anyway I hope you have a HAPPY BIRTHDAY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
