Brown Bear, Reindeer and Co

The story

It’s Christmas Eve and everyone in the house is tucked up in bed dreaming of the big day to come. Little do they know that the toys under the Christmas tree are coming to life. Brown Bear, Reindeer, Sledge and Puppy dream of seeing Lapland and thanks to the help of the fairy on top of the tree, their wish is granted and off they fly. As they land, the toys see real reindeer, visit Santa’s workshop and get to see where they came from. They return home in time for Christmas morning and only Mum and Dad know something’s a miss when they spot Reindeer with something new around his neck!
