Kristen Bell: I’m Worried My Daughters Won’t Like Frozen

03/05/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Kristen Bell may have won the world over with her performance in Frozen, but she’s worried the film’s two biggest critics might be her own daughters, Lincoln, 23 months, and Delta, 11 weeks.

“I hope I don’t show them the movie and they both go, ‘Eh,’ ” Bell, 34, joked while chatting with PEOPLE about Crest and Oral-B’s new collaboration with the Disney film.

Worries aside, she’s hoping her daughters will love the movie, especially as they continue to bond as sisters.

“My girls get along great, which I’m really grateful for,” she says. “It will be exciting to show them Frozen one day because it’s a story of sisters. When they both start watching TV, I think it will be a very special day in our household.”

While Delta is currently going through a “smush-y, snuggly stage,” Lincoln is already channeling her funny parents.

“Two-year-olds are really fun because they’re starting to have all these thoughts about life and about things in the room, and they’re starting to verbalize them, and oftentimes they’re hilarious,” explains Bell. “I feel like I see a good mix of both [her father Dax Shepard and me]. I think she’s going to benefit from the best of both worlds.”

Lincoln has settled into her role as a big sister — “she loves it,” says the House of Lies star — and Bell is loving her role as a mom more than ever.

“Every silly cliché that I’ve ever heard has come true as a parent, like, ‘You’ll never know how much you’ll love them,’ or, ‘They’re the most interesting person on Earth,’ ” she says. “I never thought I would be a mom that identifies myself as a mom first, but I do. Being a parent, I just find to be so much fun.”

As for how she’s already been dropping her baby weight, Bell credits a healthy diet, getting as much sleep as possible, and “chasing a toddler around.”

“I [also] feel like I’ve maintained a healthy attitude,” she says. “Choosing not to stress about my baby weight helps me lose baby weight. If you’re stressed about your baby weight, you’ll hold onto it. It’s a weird catch-22.”

Never have seen it, never will. Not liking Kristen Bell is the main reason. Glad my daughter wants to buck the bandwagon as well.

People care so little about Frozen that they will click on an article, read it, decide to comment about how much they don’t like it, and then post their comment. I’d hate to see what would happen if someone did like it.

Oh my god, enough with this damn movie already.

I love this movie. I may be partial though as I have a younger sister and two little girls (3 years and 16 mos). There’s nothing better than dance parties to the soundtrack, shooting icy blasts or acts of true love. Your girls will LOVE it Kristen (BTW, love you owning being pregnant in House of Lies).

As a mom I have seen some strange things other mom’s do with their kids. They take their kids to see a movie like “Frozen” and are almost more excited to see it than their kids. Then like a minute after the movie is over they are just pining after everything they can get their hands on for their kids. I see them in Toy stores saying- “look at this doll- do you want it- huh, do you want it?” Meanwhile the kid is just sitting in the cart kind of looking at it like, ah, okay I guess. It’s like the mom’s are actually buying it for themselves!!! It’s vey weird. I think parents make their kids obsess over these movies so they can buy a lot of stuff – the stuff they would of wanted as a child!!

See what I mean? This is an advertisement for Crest. Now mom’s can run out and get that toothbrush & toothpaste because it’s got the characters from Frozen pictured on it!
