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>

Goofs

Throughout their escapades in Toyland, Lisa drives a pink car, Mary drives a blue car, and Georgie drives a purple car. Jack's car changes between pink and blue constantly. For example, at the Toymaster's Workshop he parks a pink car, then leaves in a blue one. See more »

Quotes

Georgie Porgie: See that house on the hill? The bowling ball? That's Barnaby's house. All black - 3 holes. He is so evil and so bizarre. Sometimes, when he gets really angry, he rolls his house right down the street and knocks people over like they're nine-pins.
Lisa Piper: Geez, this guy sounds really weird.

Enjoyable in its context as a TV Christmas movie!
14 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off, this is a TV Christmas movie. Most of us realize that at Christmas, tons of silly TV movies for the season come out. So, if you watch it with higher expectations, you probably would be disappointed. Having said that, if you like to watch fun, silly Christmas movies, then there's a better chance that this is a movie for you! There's some romance, some conflict, singing, and a lot of toys! This makes it a good choice to watch with the family...this is one of our favorite ridiculous Christmas movies to watch. So, to anyone else out there whose family enjoys watching the silly Christmas movies, consider checking this one out!
