The poster comes from a collection of three sheet movie posters recently discovered in country Victoria. Some of the three sheets in the collection had the panels glued together so they could be easily displayed and this will be specifed in the condition description. Condition varies on the posters as they are very large posters but they display well. Linen backing would easily address any issues that they may have.

Babes in Toyland is a 1961 Walt Disney Christmas musical film in Technicolor, directed by Jack Donohue, and distributed to theatres by Buena Vista Distribution. It stars Ray Bolger as Barnaby, Annette Funicello as Mary Contrary, Tommy Sands as Tom Piper, and Ed Wynn as the Toymaker.
The film was based upon Victor Herbert's popular 1903 operetta Babes in Toyland. There had been a 1934 film also titled Babes in Toyland starring Laurel and Hardy, and three television adaptations prior to the Disney film, but Disney's was only the second film version of the operetta released to movie theatres and the first in Technicolor. However, the plot, and in some cases, the music, bear little resemblance to the original as Disney had most of the lyrics rewritten and some of the song tempos drastically changed.
The toy soldiers would later appear in Christmas parades at the Disney theme parks around the world.
