He has been asked to present his Christmas toy line to a superstore, but has just 12 days to put everything in order. Lydia shows Robert that the task goes far deeper than just tidying up some messy cupboards – it’s his whole life that needs sorting out! – while Lydia learns from Robert that sometimes it’s a good thing to allow chaos to rule. A cute Christmas heart-warmer with two likeable stars who really click. (2017; Cert PG).
