Synopsis:

“It’s an exciting time in Santa’s workshop as the elves get ready for Christmas day in Bumbles’ Big Christmas Adventure. Bumbles–the happy, snappy, never-nappy elf–is especially excited as he helps to make the toys and clean the workshop in preparation for Santa’s big arrival. It’s a thrill for elves and children alike when Santa arrives, and all is well until that fateful moment when Santa entrusts Bumbles with the all-important jar of Christmas magic. When everything goes awry it appears that Christmas is doomed, but Santa has confidence in Bumbles’ ability to fix his mistake. The question is, can Bumbles get the magic back in time to save Christmas? Join Santa and his elves (plus the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy!) for a gripping adventure, in which Bumbles leans that the key to big success is found in just one little word. Persist!” (From the CPO Website)
