During the Christmas Eve blizzard, Lisa travels to Toyland in Wizard of Oz-like fashion and arrives just in time for a wedding.

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 »
At the beginning of the movie, in the toy store, "Jack" (Keanu Reeves) says "My Jeep's got four-wheel drive, I'll take you both home." But when Jack, Mary and Lisa leave the toy store, Jack is driving a Suzuki Samurai. See more »
I love this movie, it rocks, it rules. Keanu Reeves, Drew Barrymore, and Pat Morita are all in it. They are fantastic in their roles. I don't know where people get off saying this is a bad movie, because it isn't. Although it mildly resembles The Wizard of Oz, and Drew Barrymore looks like a total geekette, it is still fantastic. Barnaby is the best, even though he is evil. The story is timeless, the actors are or will be considered movie greats and I hope I'm not the only one who will remember this fantastic piece of film history.
