Plot Synopsis

Kris Kringle is a young boy with an immense desire to do good things for others, especially after being adopted by an elf family, led by Tanta Kringle, in the mountains of Whispering Winds. After growing up, Kris returns to his home village of Sombertown, where he starts a gift factory to build toys and give them to the local children. But when the evil ruler, Mayor Burgermeister Meisterburger, bans toys from the land, Kris is forced to go directly to Mother Nature and ask her for assistance. With the help of magical elves and several special reindeer, Kris defeats the mean old Burgermeister and delivers toys to children all over the world, earning him the name Santa Claus.
