'Frozen' dolls sold out in stores until August

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The "Frozen" craze isn't melting anyway anytime soon. If you have a daughter under the age of 10, chances are you know who Elsa and Anna are. Most likely your daughter can sing the song as well.

My niece Mykayla is not the only little girl out there with a long face. We talked to little Jasmine, who just can't let go of wanting a doll, either. Once again she and and her dad left the Disney Store in Manhattan empty handed.

The "Frozen" dolls aren't just sold out at the Disney Store. They're sold out at most major retail stores across the country.

The dolls retail for about $13. But check out prices on Amazon.com where resellers are asking for much more. Elsa alone is going for $50 -- and that's not the singing one. That's going for $100. And don't even ask how much the costumes are going for -- hundreds of dollars on eBay and Amazon.

The New York Attorney General's Office said these prices are perfectly legal.

Disney says stores should be fully stocked by August.

    You've probably seen Airbnb commercials extolling the benefits of homeowners renting out their houses or apartments to out-of-town guests for a fee. Sharing is caring feel-good commercials.But housing activists say Airbnb is reducing available housing in New York City's increasingly expensive and shrinking housing market. They argue Airbnb is pushing thousands of apartments toward use as illegal hotels instead of affordable housing.
