All roads lead to magical, merry Toyland as Mary Contrary and Tom Piper prepare for their wedding! But villainous Barnaby wants Mary for himself, so he kidnaps Tom, setting off a series of comic chases, searches, and double-crosses! The "March Of The Wooden Soldiers" helps put Barnaby in his place, and ensures a "happily ever after" for Tom and Mary!

The music and some of the performances are great (especially Ray Bolger) but plotwise it's not great (not even the best version of Babes in Toyland).

Nowhere near as wondrously entertaining as I'd remembered it from my childhood. Annette just doesn't show emotions on her face, like ever.
By far the best part of this movie is the villains transposed from the "Zorro" television program, and led by "The Wizard of Oz" great Ray Bolger.
