It’s the night before Christmas and all through the web, nobody else is doing reviews so I’m here instead!


Tonight I’m looking at Jack Frost from the Frosty the Snowman toyline. Tomorrow morning, (Yes Christmas Morning!) I’ll be taking a look at old Frosty himself to finish out our Christmas in Hollywood spectacular. These toys much like the other Forever Fun toys started out under Playing Mantis. Then they became Round 2 and now they’re under the secondary label of Forever Fun.

Packaging:


The packaging is nice enough, but a little cumbersome. It’s an odd angled shape, but it works out pretty well. I do like the Frosty logo up top. The figure is quite visible inside and that’s always a plus.

Articulation:
The articulation on Jack Frost is a bit strange. He has an articulated waist that pivots forward and backwards and it gives him some good pose ability but his legs don’t have individual cuts. Instead they move as one solid piece. He also has ankle cuts.


Rounding out the rest of his articulation is a cut neck, cut shoulders and cut wrists. That does improve his posing quite a bit. Be careful though, in certain stances he can’t stand up for long. It’s a bit of a balancing act.

Sculpt:
Overall this guy looks pretty good. Jack Frost had a elf-like look and that’s complete here. The best part is in the subtle light blues and different tones throughout. He definitely looks frigid.


He has a little potbelly and a whimsical smile.


There is some issue with paint slop throughout. Forever Fun’s lines with more detailed paint aps seem to be lacking a bit.

Accessories:
Jack Frost comes with the “wrong” silk hat as well as a very cool unanimated Frosty. That’s his best accessory. The hat is interesting because it’s sculpted with handles and clearly was made to fit some hair on the inside, but who’s I don’t know.

Value:
These holiday figures seem a bit much at $8 but they are smaller runs and only available one time a year. If you miss out on these guys one year, you can hope they come out the next year in a re-release or else it’s off to Ebay to pay two or three times that price. The choice is yours.

Score Recap:
Packaging – 7
Sculpting – 7
Articulation – 6
Accessories – Hat, Frosty
Value – 7
Overall – 7 out of 10


Jack Frost is one of the cooler looking figures in this line. Rankin/Bass were on to something with Frosty and his cohorts and these figures represent that well. You can’t pass this guy up if you want to have a complete Frosty display.
