Synopsis

Elderly toymaker Kenneth Zevo worries that his children dreamer Leslie (Robin Williams) and ditzy Alsatia (Joan Cusack) are not ready to take over his company, so he wills it to his brother, The General. The military man replaces Zevo Toys' bright, friendly products with war toys that bring destruction into playtime, forcing Leslie and Alsatia to make a stand. This stunningly-designed film makes the case that violent toys and role-playing have a detrimental effect on children will you agree with it by the end?

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
