When Tangie, a teddy bear goes into the Smile-erator on his head, his smile is put on upside down, causing him to end up on the bargain bin on Christmas Eve with other misfit toys, then onto Winkle's Emporium, a discount store. There, Tangie does his level best over the coming year to become a part of some family. He spends his time in Winkle's front window with Jack, a Jack-in-the-box with claustrophobia and Bird, a cuckoo clock bird with agorophobia.Written by
I'm not sure why most people aren't familiar with this special. In fact, I didn't know about this until quite a while later. No matter what your age is, I believe that you will enjoy this. While toys coming to life when people aren't looking is a very common premise, I have yet to see it fail to create something good. The story is very sweet all the way through. You'll probably like this, even if your first time seeing it is as an adult. You may find yourself watching this even when it isn't Christmas because it could actually work for any part of the year, they just chose Christmas for this particular story. But whether you have a kid who likes nice stories or you are a kid yourself, I highly recommend this movie to watch all the time.
