Incredible and underrated children's movie
5 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had this on VHS when I was a little kid, and it was one of my favorite movies. The most enthralling part of the movie is that it is "live"-action as opposed to animation, which gives the movie a much more realistic feel to kids. A large portion of the movie is just toys along with music, and all the different types (vintage toys, windup-toys, early video games) are showcased. It also shows how toys are designed and made in a factory, so the movie is educational to a point as well. If I was able to find either of the main character toys, I would buy them in a heartbeat. A great movie for kids, I give it an 8 out of 10.
