2014 Annual Ornament – The Nutcracker/Toy Soldier
After the Christmas Eve party Clara checks on her Nutcracker Toy Soldier and she falls asleep under the Christmas tree. At midnight, she awakes discovers that she has shrunk and her toy soldiers have come to life. Despite the bravery of her Nutcracker, the toy soldiers are losing their battle against the Rat King's army. Desperate to save her soldiers, Clara hits the Rat King in the head with her slipper enabling his defeat. With the battle over, the triumphant Nutcracker transforms into a prince.
