Dept 56 Elsa's castle size?

I was looking at the Dept 56's site at the new Frozen subseries. It said the dimentions for Elsa's Ice Castle are...Size: 6.61 x 5.59 x 6.4".....Wow...that is awful small to pay 220.00 for. I expected it to be taller...I was wondering if anyone has anymore info....I was hoping it was some kind of typo......If that is the real size...I just saved mysel 300.00......See More
