Please Disregard This, Move Along

Re-watching “Babes in Toyland” with my sister, my mother and my sister’s kids. We’re actually at the part where the trees are taking everyone to The Toymaker.

I had this horrible thought.

What if The Toymaker was so feared by the trees-

“This is as far as we go

This is where your trouble begins.”

-because heĀ turned trespassers into living dolls?

I promptly told my brain to shut up and my family, used to this, ignored me completely.

Go to your room, Groomio and invent something to destroy yourself!
