Oprah Winfrey Interviews J.K. Rowling
Fans of Harry Potter should definitely have seen the 2010 Oprah Rowling interview that was filmed in Scotland. I hardly ever remember to turn on the television when there is a show coming on that I want to see. However, this was one time that I definitely remembered to watch. Within minutes, I was enthralled and gave up trying to get anything else done while the show was on.

Some of the statistics in this film have changed but the overall story will always be the same.

If you missed Oprah Winfrey's interview of J.K. Rowling, that is unfortunate. However, you are actually in luck because you can watch it on this video from Youtube. Presented here without commercials, it features a run time of 41 minutes.

Did you watch Oprah's J.K. Rowling interview? What did you think?  I think that J.K. Rowling was hugely important to a generation of families and that her closing statement was very, very true for many children. Watch the video and then let us know if Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling were important to your growing up years.

Best Frozen Gift Ideas

Best Frozen Gift Ideas: Here's a page of wonderful gift ideas for anyone who loves Disney's Frozen movie.

If you are a parent of a little girl, you are likely aware that Disney's Frozen movie is hugely popular with that age group. It may be a while before Disney releases another female-focused movie that surpasses the success of this film.

When little girls started falling in love with the two new Disney princesses in this film, Elsa and Anna, the merchandise sold quickly and retailers did not have enough Frozen merchandise on hand. Fortunately, those days are past and now there are lots of great Frozen-themed gift ideas readily available.

If you have someone young or young at heart in your world who is in love with Frozen, you will enjoy these fabulous, officially licensed Disney gift ideas.

Which Frozen Items Did I Pick?

True fans will want to have this Disney Frozen movie blu-ray disc in their  movie collection!

I start with a copy of the movie, which is definitely an essential for fans of Disney's Frozen. (Find your copy of Frozen on Amazon by clicking right here.)

In the toy category, I have included Anna and Elsa dolls, a wonderful Lego set and a great jigsaw puzzle. All are gifts that are fun to play with.

I have included items that can be used in everyday life including a t-shirt, a coffee mug and a calendar. They are fun as well as practical and affordable gift ideas.

I chose one expensive, really nice item that will be treasured by the recipient forever. It is a beautiful musical snow globe.

Frozen Lego Sets

Anyone who loves Disney's Frozen and Lego, will love working one of these fabulous building sets.

Elsa's Sparkling Ice Castle, set 41062, was the first Frozen-themed Lego set. It is not an overly big set, having 292 pieces but features what you need to recreate the ice castle as well as the minifigures of Elsa, Anna and Olaf. It is rated for children aged 6 and up and I think that it is a great choice for the little girl who loves building and Frozen.

Frozen Coffee Mugs

Such pretty Disney Store Elsa and Anna coffee mugs!

In our opinion, the Disney Store makes some of the nicest coffee mugs out there. In the case of the Frozen mugs shown here, you can choose either the blue or the pink one or you can choose both. You can check out all of eBay's Frozen Anna and Elsa mugs by clicking here.

Frozen Jigsaw Puzzles

Anyone who loves Disney's Frozen will love this or any of the other Frozen-themed jigsaw puzzles, which are available for puzzlers from 3 to 103!

My family loves puzzles. We have always enjoyed working puzzles together and, when our guys were little, I particularly appreciated the fact that working a jigsaw puzzle is a fun and affordable family activity with a bonus educational benefit. Don't tell your children!

The puzzle shown here has three small 49 piece puzzles in one box and is recommended for children aged 5 and up. You will find one image of Anna, one of Elsa and one of everybody's favourite snowman, Olaf.  You can see all of Amazon's Frozen themed jigsaw puzzles by clicking right here.

Frozen T-Shirts

Such a pretty Olaf-themed Disney Frozen t-shirt for your daughter.

A t-shirt is definitely an affordable and practical gift idea, one that can be used all year. I Love, LOVE, love this pretty pink Olaf t-shirt. What Frozen fan would not want to add a t-shirt like this one to his or her collection? This one is a girl's shirt available in sizes 2T to 6X. You can find this t-shirt on Amazon by clicking here.

Frozen Calendars

A Frozen calendar would make a great gift idea for any woman who loves the Disney movie.

You can celebrate Frozen all year long with a wall calendar. A calendar is yet another affordable and practical gift idea and a Frozen-themed calendar makes a great gift idea for a slightly older fan, one who can put a wall calendar to good use and who will enjoy decorating a room with it. Find all of the current Frozen calendars here on Amazon. Unfortunately, Disney will not continue producing Frozen calendars after the movie

Frozen Dolls

Best Frozen Gift Ideas: I love this pair of Elsa and Anna Toddler-style dolls!

You and, more importantly, your little girl will recognise Elsa and Anna, dressed as they are in these beautiful outfits from the movie. These dolls are Disney's Deluxe Toddler Elsa and Anna and suitable for Frozen fans as young as three years old. Find them on eBay by clicking right here since they are a retired set. 

Frozen Snow Globes

This Let It Go musical snow globe from the Disney Store is magnificent. It would make a striking gift idea for mom or any girl who loves Frozen.

If you are looking for something really, really special you might want to consider this beautiful Disney Store Anna, Elsa and Olaf 'Let It Go' musical snow globe. Another now-retired item, you can look for it on eBay by clicking right here. When I looked today on eBay, I did see some of this particular snow globe available in a wide range of price points.
