Also known by the title, Parade of the Tin Soldiers, this instrumental theme has become a favorite of the holiday season. It was utilized in a 1933 animated short starring Betty Boop and a parade of toys that magically come to life to crown their queen. Strong and steady, "British" in character, but with the added sounds of many magical and child-like imaginations sprinkled over the top, this piece is a true holiday gem.
