What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this animated version of the holiday classic Babes in Toyland is filled with upbeat song, but also includes scenes where kids are thrown into an attic by their wicked uncle, and demons are unleashed to ruin Christmas. Depending on your child's tolerance for peril and monsters, these scenes will either be exciting or scary. Cartoonish violence -- falling, fighting, chasing -- is common.
