“Time Toys” is a story about four “losers” from the suburbs who stumble upon a chest of incredible toys from the future. The discovery takes them on an adventure using their newfound toys to save their neighborhood and the world from a maniacal scientist. In the end, they succeed, not only in saving the world, but, like the “Wizard of Oz,” they each become the authors of their own destiny and realize that they had the qualities they thought they were lacking all along.
“Time Toys” is a lot of fun! It features a group of kids who have to try to save the future of the world. Kids will love this movie, and so will anyone who enjoys time travel stories. In this case, several objects from the future wind up in the hands of present-day kids, including Matt and Mel, Boomer, Eddie, Guard and Jenny. One of the objects is a mask that can make a person change his or her appearance. In fact, one kid puts it on and glances at a picture of Einstein, and then looks like Einstein. It is a funny moment. Also, they find gloves that can make a person very fast at boxing and give him or her power, shoes than can make them extremely fast and give great leaping powers, a cap that can make them smart, and a device that can reveal the future.
A lot of action takes place as the friends, which Bryce (Evan Roe) calls “zeroes,” play basketball and gets into a few scuffles with him and his goons. Ultimately, the boys and a pretty girl named Jenny must stop her evil uncle Weller (Greg Germann) from his evil plans to control the future. A man named Wiz (Ed Begley Jr.) might just be the man to help the kids out, if he can stop drinking for long enough.
“Time Toys” is a creative, imaginative, and futuristic tale that will amaze the kids. We are pleased to award it our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages 12-plus.
