The film is an authentic children's entertainment and quite the merriest of its kind that Hollywood has turned loose on the nation's screens in a long time.

This is a kid's movie rife with all the Freudian squalor that Disney repressed.

Regardless of what you call it, this public domain Laurel and Hardy adventure is a classic fantasy film...

Audience Reviews for Babes In Toyland

Have Seen this movie so many times I stopped counting, I couldn't wait to see it on TV when I was a Kid. It was on every Christmas Day wither on WPIX or WOR TV, back when rabbit ears or the Antenna Dad put on the roof would get us maybe 5 channels total. Anyway I will watch it again come Christmas Day. Its the Best Christmas Movie out there.

First of all I think the story of Babes in Toyland is pretty stupid itself, but this movie has Laurel and Hardy, who could have made the movie funny, but they're just distracting. Although I'd welcome a distraction from having to watch this movie, they're not as funny as they think.

This movie never gets old! I watch this every Thanksgiving at my grandparents's house and I enjoy it everytime. The characters are so sweet and lovable and this is so hilarious! A must-see for adults and kids alike. "Christmas? Christmas in the middle of July?!"
