Get ready for a hilarious fun-filled adventure as 10 year old Caden and his best friend, Charlie, a golden retriever, set out on a wild escapade around town thwarting the evil plans of the bumbling town bullies who are out to break into Cadenís Dadís toy shop to steal his new one-of-a-kind toy invention that could literally change the world. Filled with warmth and humor, this laugh-a-minute, family-friendly comedy will reignite your imagination, give you back your dreams and show you that anything is possible if you just believe in yourself.
In this day and age a lot of kids have forgotten how to use their imagination and their entire world is wrapped around video games. Here is a movie that the entire family will enjoy. This story is about believing in yourself to make the magic and having imagination to think outside the box. Caden loves his dad and the toys he invents, but until now nothing has put the wonder in toys like Mr. Wonder's new invention.
Caden uses his own imagination to keep his father's plans for this new toy from the bullies he has been dealing with on a daily basis. Filled with slap-stick antics Caden keeps the town bullies at bay from the plans and in the process everyone learns a lesson of change for the future.
There are many valuable lessons taught in this movie such as spending time with a child, using your imagination and believing in yourself. We are proud to award "Charlie: A Toy Story" the Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for all ages.
