Based on a character from the box office smash-hit Frozen, Frozen: Olaf's Quest is an adventure-based game where the girls will play as Olaf the snowman as he makes his way through 60 fun-filled levels. But make sure the girls are aware of all the traps that are awaiting them, that way they can unlock some of Olaf's colorful fashion items like scarves, hats, mittens, and buttons.
