Storyline

Sensitive young Toby is deeply saddened when his doted father John, who buried himself in work when widowed, dumps the boy for weeks, including Christmas, on his stern old mother, grim widow Ellen. Beside the stuck-up lady's driver-butler Henry, Toby finds comfort only with a velveteen cuddly rabbit and other animal toys in his father's childhood room, which come to life in his mind when he plays with them. Drama over rabbit and boy stirs crucial emotions in both family and fantasy toy land. Written by KGF Vissers

Disregard other reviews. This is a great family film.
9 April 2011 | by (Texas, United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this with my 3 youngest children (4,7,10). We all thought this was a great film.

I liked how they intertwined real and cartoon in the movie. Speaking of cartoon, even though about half the film was in cartoon format, I did not loose interest in the film like I do with cartoons.

Great story, wonderful acting, beautiful surroundings, touching message (I saw my 7 yr. old boy crying, had a tear myself, and my 4 yr. old told me "a drop came from my eye"), and a reminder to all of us to remember to use our imagination with our young ones.

Nothing to complain about as far as inappropriate content for children.
