Parents spending fortunes for "Frozen" merchandise on eBay

(WTVM/CNN) - Disney's Frozen is not only a box-office hit, but the animated film is causing a frenzy on eBay.

Kids across the country are clamoring for Frozen merchandise, especially dress-up versions of Queen Elsa's sparkling ice-blue dress. The problem is that many US stores have sold out.

Some desperate parents are shelling out over $1,000 to get a dress that sold for $150 last year.

Others are spending even more on character dolls of Elsa and her sister Ana.
