In the store on Christmas Eve morning, all the customers and salespeople laugh because there are no more Turbo Man dolls and they claim that the last doll went with a lady in a fur coat. But, if you look closely, you can see customers holding Turbo Man dolls and some on the shelves. However, the boxes they're holding say "Turbo Man" on the top to indicate they are associated with the Turbo Man toy-line. Boxes containing Booster and Dementor are in similar boxes, so they could very well be in the boxes held by customers at the toy store. See more »
As if I didn't have enough trouble, my son sends me out for some goofy-butt toy. Some fruity robot named Turtle Man.
It's Turbo Man. My son wants one, too.

'Jingle All The Way' is a Christmas story about merchandising and family. A lot of people seemed to really hate this movie, but I did not think it was all that bad. Sure, some of the action and the story was not the best, but I thought it did provoke a lot of laughter. The scenes with Arnie at the warehouse filled with Santas and elves was funny, and it had a good ending with the father becoming the hero after all. It does represent the bad of the holiday season with all the merchandising and the over-emphasis on that one particular toy that kids must get for Christmas, and if they do not receive it, then they are outcasts. Despite its problems, I did find it a funny and worthwhile film.
