Bob Baker’s “Enchanted Toyshop” is a magical vision of a toy store come to life. Originally staged as “Toyland Review” in 1963, this whimsical and imaginative production intended to make real the fantasies of every child who has ever experienced the magic of playing with a toy. From animated cuckoo clocks to tumbling teddy bears, from jack-in-the-boxes to wooden soldiers, “Enchanted Toyshop” is a universal exploration of the childlike wonder and fantasy that kids of all ages should embrace and envision.
