Parents fight over Disney doll at Dublin toy shop

Gardaí have confirmed they were called to a toy shop in Dublin yesterday as customers fought to get their hands on a doll from the Disney film 'Frozen'.

According to the Irish Independent, the incident happened at the Smyths toy store at Airside Retail Park in Swords as parents rushed to secure the singing 'Elsa'.

However no arrests were made.

Manufacturers are struggling to match demand for the 'Frozen Snow Glow Elsa' - parents queued overnight on Thursday as toy shops received their latest shipment of the doll.

As described on the Smyths website, the doll raises its arms and has a "snowflake necklace light up while it plays the hit song Let it Go and her dress magically shines".
