A decent Disney flick (not animated) where you are taken on a journey to discover where toys of all kinds come from. Two odd shaped, bug-eyed toys named Peepers and Zoom, want to know where they come from so they have their owner, a young girl named Robin, take them back to the store as they reverse time to discover their roots. Most of the movie takes place in Japan as the two toys find themselves in warehouses, front offices and an old museum where the toys get a chance to talk to the toys of the 20's, 30's and 40's. You get to see every step of the way for a toy to be made but remember, this movie was made in 1984 so the computers and toys in the movie are pretty darn basic.
