Babes in Toyland 1934 Laurel and Hardy Comedy Family Fantasy
Stars: Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Virginia Karns
Babes in Toyland is also known as March of the Wooden Soldiers.
Ollie Dee and Stanley Dum try to borrow money from their employer, the toy maker, to pay off the mortgage on Mother Peep’s shoe. Mother Peep needs to keep her home and Little Bo Peep from the clutches of the evil Barnaby. When that fails, they trick Barnaby into marrying Stanley Dum instead of Bo Peep. Enraged, Barnaby unleashes the bogeymen from their caverns to destroy Toyland.
Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy are endearing as the two workers in the toy factory who need to help out their landlady – that old lady who lives in the shoe.
Babes in Toyland is a wonderful film for children and adults. The singing by Charlotte Henry and Felix Knight is nice. The jokes by Laurel and Hardy are corny yet delightful. Great family fare. The film may be dated but that is part of its charm. This film is one of, if not the, best of Laurel and Hardy.

In addition to Babes in Toyland, you may also enjoy Alice in Wonderland (1933). This version is probably the best filming of the Lewis Carroll story. The costumes and sets are magnificent and the casting is excellent. The special effects are amazing for 1933.
Another wonderful family film is the original Hansel and Gretel. With technical wizardry, this feature used stop-action animation and hand-sculpted dolls and sets to create a fantasy land of beauty.
