The sailor finally rights himself and, despite black-jack's best efforts, manages to save the day! Santa finishes his snack and rewraps the gifts keeping the new lovers together in one package and chastising the jack-in-the-box as the cartoon comes to an end. It's only real fault really, and this is more personal preference rather than objective criticism, is that the story is one that has been seen many times in cartoons and not an awful lot new is done with it, so the toys' antics are not that surprising.
It also maybe takes a touch too long to set up, albeit it is still set up absolutely beautifully, finding more energy when the toys come to life. On the other hand, the animation is very nice and often beautiful.
Santa Claus lends his sparkling sleigh-like Star Shooter to let a child in order to deliver a Christmas tree to his father in Antarctica. "The Christmas Visit" is a animated short from Russia.

The music sparkles with festive spirit, and while it has a lot of wit and character it mostly has a most elegant lushness and used appropriately understatedly. It is narrated with calming sincerity as well. The story, despite it being very standard, is also very charming and entertaining and the inventive visuals help to make the action engaging, which it certainly does in the quite exciting rescue.
The characters are similarly sweet and engaging. Santa is suitably jovial, the sailor and the shepherdess are attractive and not too pallid and Black-jack the Snidley Whiplash-like Jack-in-the-box villain is deliciously smarmy and perhaps the most colourful personality of the toys.
The voice work for the narrator and Santa is solid.
In conclusion, very nicely animated, fun and charming. Visit Prime Video to explore more titles. Find showtimes, watch trailers, browse photos, track your Watchlist and rate your favorite movies and TV shows on your phone or tablet!
