Andre Sennwald New York Times 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. Rated: 4/5 Mar 25, 2006 Full Review Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: 3/5 Jul 29, 2003 Full Review Chicago Reader This is a kid's movie rife with all the Freudian squalor that Disney repressed. Feb 13, 2001 Full Review Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine It's a combination of Victor Herbert, scrambled Mother Goose, scrambled Laurel and Hardy, and toy nightmare - the sort of thing an imaginative child might dream, falling asleep after too many Christmas excitements and indigestibles. Sep 25, 2019 Full Review Dorothy Woodend The Tyee (British Columbia) . Revenge, Christmas, and big wooden men, does it get any better than that? Sometimes, it is really best not to analyze too deeply, just enjoy the insanity. Aug 24, 2017 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed Regardless of what you call it, this public domain Laurel and Hardy adventure is a classic fantasy film...

Liam D Laurel and Hardy do take a back seat to this very entertaining version of the famous opera Babes In Toyland but when their trademark comedy comes in it's absolutely hilarious. An holiday classic for a reason Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/14/24 Full Review John C Great viewing this classic for more than 60 plus years!! Wooden soldiers is one of my favorite scenes, Laurel and Hardy had great acting skills and great friendship off the screen. This movie won't disappoint amazing that it's almost 90 years old. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/25/23 Full Review Rich R A timeless classic that brings back wonderful memories of my childhood. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/23/23 Full Review chris C Grew up with watching this movie and I enjoy it every single time I do. The music to the humor is always so much fun and is a timeless classic in my eyes. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 07/15/23 Full Review Ashutosh This film came before 'the Wizard of Oz' and is much better than that film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review rob b Believe it or not this terrified me as a small child, standard Laurel and Hardy fare but with a darker edge. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
