Synopsis
In a small town (Zug), there is a magical toyshop run by Mr Jingles, a whimsical and kind-hearted toymaker. The extraordinary toys in the shop come to life when the clock strikes midnight. One night, however, the jealous goblins steal the magic from the shop, causing the toys to lose their enchantment.
Mr Jingle’s granddaughter, Penny, decides to team up with some of the toys to go on a quest through the mystical enchanted forest to retrieve the stolen magic. The main story centres around their adventures and challenges to outwit the cunning goblins, eventually restoring the magic to the toyshop.
