An Adventure Comes to Life! The most amazing adventure is awaiting. Are you ready to unlock the secret? On his ninth birthday, Omri is presented with many gifts - the most unusual being a cupboard. But this is no ordinary wooden box. It is endowed with magical power that transforms Omri's plastic toy figurines into living creatures. The first miniature to be animated is a 19th Century Iroquois warrior named Little Bear, who is terrified at first by his alien surroundings but soon bonds with his gigantic playmate. But when Omri's friend, Patrick, gets in on the act and brings a six-shooting cowboy (David Keith, U-571) to life, their fantastic secret is in danger of being revealed. The Indian in the Cupboard is terrific family entertainment from director Frank Oz (Bowfinger) and Melissa Mathison, the writer of E.T., The Extra-Terrestrial.

Omri gets a plastic Indian toy for his birthday which he receives with not much enthusiasm. Things get better when he locks it in his cupboard with a key only to discover that the plastic toy has come alive and is Little Bull, an Iroquois brave. Omri thinks this is cool at first, but soon discovers that Little Bull is not a toy, but an actual person who has had a life. This makes life interesting as he tries to help him out to build a house, find food, etc. and things get distressing when his friend puts a cowboy into the cupboard and he comes to life as well. Can Omri really keep a real live person as a toy?
Daniel really enjoyed this book and I did as well. It was a good fantastical story. I loved how Omri grew through the story and recognized that Little Bear was a person and tried to do what was best for him. My ten year old son Kile also read it and did not enjoy it. I think it’s because he wanted to read his Warrior Cat books and was disturbed it took away time from them. Overall, a unique fantastical story that is very entertaining.

They love it! They are completely hooked and beg every night for " just one more chapter". This book has caused my 7 year old to rediscover his love for his Lincoln logs, wooden train tracks, and his toy soldiers and Indians. He even pretends that was his closes the door to his locker in his bedroom that the Indians and soldiers have come to life when he opens it. They have also started to say "oh crumbs!" Instead of "oh my gosh!". Oh my gosh is a big pet peeve of mine. Anyways this is great book and has caused great things to happen in our house.

Rewatching it, many years later, the whole thing seems significantly smaller than I thought it was.Read more
