Kind and friendly Molly Mahony is an extremely talented pianist. She won prizes at a very young age and everyone expected her to have an amazing career. However, she is now at the beginning of her twenties and has to work in a toy store for a living, always looking for that last, final and perfect set of notes to finish her first piano piece. The only extraordinary thing in her life is the fact that the toy store is magical and led by Edward Magorium. He is only 243 years young and has been making kids smile for 114 years, especially young Eric who spends all of his spare time in the store. When Magorium tells Molly that he will be leaving soon and giving the store to her all hell breaks loose. An accountant shows up whose task it is to find out how much the store is worth – and then the toys go crazy. After Magoriums final farell the magical store seems to dissolve and Molly is offering it for sale. Out of all people it is the accountant who finally lets her realize how much creativity and what an extraordinary potential for wonderful things is hiding inside of her.
Dustin Hoffman, Natalie Portman, Jason Bateman and whizz kid Zach Mills as Eric will entertain you and let your imagination run free again. Note: The film is especially for young people. The end is really sugary but then again this film is the best only for people who still believe in the wonderful magic of the games and favourite toys of our youth and what amazing adventures we had with them.
