Yuletide always puts us in the mind of Walt Disney's Babes in Toyland. The movie was widely and wildly promoted and among the treasures created to tie-in with the film's 1961 release were not one but two Little Golden Books. The one pictured here, The Toy Soldiers (art by Robert Thompson) focuses on the climatic battle between brave Tom Piper and the villain Barnaby, with the miniaturized Tom (played in the movie Tommy Sands) leading the Toymaker's Wooden Soldiers to victory. Speaking of Babes in Toyland, be sure and check out the article I wrote about the musical fantasy for D23.
