It would seem more and more brands are now using movies to sell their products! Christmas this year seems to have seen it go into overdrive!
The leaders are of course for movie-related Christmas Shopping are Star Wars; Minions and of course Disney’s Frozen, from everything to socks and other clothes to Soap and shower gels.
