The wonderful world of living toys

An old kiosk full of wondrous things is home to twenty-five toy soldiers looking exactly like each other. Only the last one is different. He is missing a leg. But he is just as steadfast and brave as his brothers. He falls in love with the enchanting little toy-dancer who, just like him, stands on just one leg. But there is someone interfering. Or was it a gust of wind that blew the brave tin soldier off the window sill and down into the street? An exciting odyssey begins: the tin soldier rides through the gutter in a paper boat, meets a water rat and is swallowed by a fish. Will he ever see his beloved dancer again?
