A good, fun-filled flick for smaller kids!
3 June 2005 | by masonjarrSee all my reviews

The story has a decent plot and some good life lessons. My 1 and 2-year-old watch it from beginning to end. Songs are plentiful and some might stick in your mind for awhile. Some actors crossover into other Wee Sing titles (Punchinello, crayon, etc.), while others are world-class talent. One of the better Wee Sing titles. All in all, a timeless kid video - comparable to Barney. Most songs should be familiar.

Synopsis: Grandson and two friends are magically miniaturized in a room filled with living toys (mostly dolls and animals). They all enjoy singing songs while playing games. All the while, they look for Grandpa's missing key. The toys all come together in the end to help find the key and get the kids back to normal size.
