When the clock strikes twelve, a toy soldier walks on stage – seemingly left behind by the rest. Despite that, the soldier remains excited, especially when she hears her friends marching back from the other end of New York.

The first half of the show is based on many adaptations of the Parade of the Wooden Soldiers. As the chirpy tune trickles in, we see that the first toy soldier, despite her petite stature, steps up to lead.

The unlikely leader tries to direct her comrades during drills, to little success.

After completing the rehearsal of the Changing of the Guard, the soldiers decide to mix things up. Taking off their coats, they started to belt and dance out Christmas songs such as We Need A Little Christmas, Do You Hear What I Hear, Christmas Wrapping and Extraordinary Merry Christmas.

“But all this year’s been a busy blur,
Don’t think I have the energy”

“Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Couldn’t miss this one this year!”

If you watch the toy soldiers closely, you might notice each of them have their own antics throughout the show. And there’s some romance blooming between two of them.

The Changing of the Guard

As this year’s all-new show for Christmas, I found Santa’s Toy Soldiers to be a welcomed and entertaining performance to watch. Each show is preceded with three other segments, such as Snowfall at New York, Dancing Christmas Lights and Winter Tales. I’d suggest being at New York Library at least 20 minutes in advance of a show. Not only will you be able to experience four things consecutively, you’ll get a better spot for the Toy Soldiers’ show as well.

Stick around after the show to meet and greet the toy soldiers. This is a rare photo op moment as the soldiers only perform twice during event nights. There may be extra (unannounced) Meet and Greet sessions during the day, but don’t bet on it happening all the time.
