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

The original American television broadcast was 140 minutes long. However, the VHS (German) release is only 94 minutes long - this is also the version that is now broadcast on television. Many of the deleted scenes included original songs. (There are currently no plans to release this movie on DVD/Blue-ray) See more »

Drew Barrymore gives a bodacious performance in Babes In Toyland. As also do Jill Schoelen, Keanu Reeves, and Pat Morita. Richard Mulligan is convincing as Barnabie and pulls it off terrific. The good/evil chemistry between him and Drew will leave the viewer in awe. This amazing fantasy movie has it all. Just ignore the pathetic critics and enjoy. 7 out of 10.
