A brand new show awaits. A tale about a new toymaker who makes traditional toys pitting herself against another who make hi-tech toys. This is one of the 8 shows around the park what would put you in Christmas spirits.

The show is rather entertaining with a meaningful message at the end of it. It is one of the bigger highlights of the event.

Compared to the previous edition, this year's theme is on a smaller scale. We miss the Santa's workshop and Santa's Village where you can get up close to interact and  photo opportunities with favourite Christmas characters. Hopefully , they can make their way back next year!
