Should be a Classic
7 April 2014 | by Writer_CommentarySee all my reviews

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.
