The phenomenal success of “Frozen” is burning a hole in parents’ pockets in more ways than one.

Families have taken multiple trips to the theater to watch the movie, helping Frozen gross over $1 billion in the worldwide box office. It has become Disney’s highest-grossing animated film of all time.

It has created such a frenzy that all versions of Queen Elsa’s sparkling ice-blue dress from the movie are sold out in U.S. stores.

But on eBay, desperate parents can shell out over $1,000 to grab a limited-edition version of the dress that cost $149.95 when it first hit Disney stores in mid-November.

A cheaper version made by toy maker Jakks Pacific, which originally retailed for $20, is also selling on eBay for between $150 and $350.

Frozen fever is not limited to Elsa.

Disney’s limited-edition character dolls of Elsa and her sister Anna, priced at $99.95 each, sold out within 45 minutes after they launched on disneystore.com in January.

On eBay, bids for the limited edition dolls range from a few hundred dollars to over $3,000.
