Family adventure. 2010. 92 min.

With Richard Riehle, Kaitlyn Maher and Mitchel Musso. Director: Robert Vince. PG.

Santa Claus (riehle) is given a fluffy toy dog for his 1600th birthday which comes to life and becomes his best friend, paws (voiced by musso). They head to new york to revive the spirit of Christmas, but santa loses his memory and they become separated.

Santa gets a job as a father Christmas at a toystore while paws befriends an orphan, Quinn (played by maher), who has been placed in a home run by a very nasty woman. with help from other orphans, talking dogs and an eager boy scout the race is on to reunite paws and ailing santa. and will Quinn ever find a family to love her?

This is a warm, wonderful Christmas movie – you’d have to have a heart of stone not to be moved by the adorable Quinn. and it spreads the right message about the festive season: that it’s a time of giving, not receiving. Charming family fare. bonus: featurettes, singalongs, music video.

Find Love!
