Storyline

11-year-old Lisa has no time for toys; she's too busy taking care of her siblings and cooking for her mother. During the Christmas Eve blizzard, Lisa travels to Toyland in Wizard of Oz-like fashion and arrives just in time for a wedding. Young Mary Contrary is about to marry mean, old Barnaby Barnacle, despite the fact that she loves Jack Be Nimble. Lisa tries to stop this terrible wedding and, together with her new friends, discovers that Barnaby wants to take over Toyland. Lisa, Mary, Jack, and Georgie Porgie ask the Toymaster for help, but he can't help them as long as Lisa doesn't truly believe in toys. Written by Christine Sai-Halasz <sai@mit.edu>

Quotes

Toymaster: Ah, you two are the very first to see my newest creation.
Lisa Piper: Toymaster, for once, don't you just do something more important than a new toy? Jack and Mary have both disappeared and by the way things are looking, we could all end up disappearing.
Toymaster: Oh, Lisa, I can see that you're very upset.
Lisa Piper: Yes, I am very, and this is no time for anybody to be playing with toys. Not even you.
Toymaster: We'll just have to manage it, eh?
Lisa Piper: Toymaster, I don't think you really realized what's going on in Toyland. The whole place is...

God Awful
21 December 2003 | by (Texas,USA) – See all my reviews

I had the displeasure of watching this movie(becasue nothing else was on tv,on a Saturday) for the first time just days before Christmas last year.I couldn't believe how lame it was.Even for a children's movie.You know its bad when even kids watching the movie with you comment on how stupid it is.Was this suppose to be a comedy?The jokes kept coming from the mouths of viewers in my living room all thru out the viewing.
