The Black and White Magic of Living Toy Stories

Two children's movies on magical worlds and living toys. Both movies were made in the same year (2007), yet the messages couldn't be further apart

Two children's movies on make-believe worlds and magic toys: one had a appalling review, the other ranks 8,2 on IMDb's rating scale. One is an original work of art, the other a century old bromide. The concept of the first movie is objective, the second is subjective. Both movies were made in the same year, yet the philosophical premises couldn't be further apart.
