'Miracle in Toyland' is a 2000 animated film made by Golden Films and released by GoodTimes Entertainment.

Plot

Jesse Justice, a lonely boy, learns to care about others over himself after meeting a bunch of toys in the titular Toyland.

Why It Sucks

  1. Although we're supposed to sympathize with Jess, he is extremely unlikable, being a whiny and hyper-competitive jerk.
  2. Some things (like toys dying) are overly dark for a children's film.
  3. Cliched premise of a selfish individual learning to care about others.
  4. Low-quality art and animation.
    • The snow effects are extremely distracting.
    • Several perspective shots and animation layers are messed up.
    • Terrible scene continuity. The characters appear to teleport around the place due to the reuse of backgrounds.
    • The backgrounds frequently either make no sense or are out of proportion compared to the characters.
  5. Scenes and characters that brought up are just dropped and never mentioned again.
  6. The relationship between Jesse and his cousin Gabriella has some unintentional incestuous undertones.
  7. Unfitting soundtrack.
