Parents Need to Know
What's the story?
Forgotten by their young owner, seven toys spend their first night outside. The starry sky is a revelation that leaves them speechless ... but then the fretting and fussing begins. The WonderDoll spins a story to pass the time: In her tale, the seven toys are abducted by an alien searching for his own lost toy. The toys persuade the alien to return all the toys he's collected in his search, then throw a party to cheer up the sad creature. Then the toys return to Earth themselves, leaving the alien to finally find his beloved Cuddles, in the last place he looked. By the time her story is finished, dawn has brought the promise that the toys will soon be found by their owner.
