Delightful animated Christmas story, but some bullying.

Audience Reviews for How the Toys Saved Christmas


You're just a toy. Santa Toys are swindled out of the North Pole and into a thief's ebay auctions. The toys escape the swindler and set out on a journey to find the children they belong to on their own. "It's better to receive, receive, and receive some more." Enzo D Alo, director of Lucky and Zorba, The Adventures of Marco and Gina, Momo, Opopomoz, and Pinocchio (2012) delivers How the Toys saved Christmas in his directorial debut. The storyline for this picture was fairly straightforward and the animation quality was fairly average however the characters were fun. "Only those than can afford it will get their rewards for Christmas." This was recently added to Netflix online for the holiday season so my daughter and I watched it. It was okay and a fun film to view. It was just okay and far from a holiday classic, but worth watching once in awhile with your children. "You'll never find the boy." Grade: C

this movie is hilariously bad me and my friends still talk about how bad this movie is characters are introduced and forgotten, other characters are boaring or pointless. the plot seems to be one of those that everyone has thought of but thought was just to silly to actually do. i almost forgot about the many pointless scenes. 10% rateing for how bad this movie is but i do recamend finding it simply to laugh at how bad it is.
