Coco Pinchard's Must-Have Toy Story: A sparkling, feel-good, Christmas comedy!
Date: April 2017
Duration: 3 hours 9 minutes
Coco Pinchard's Must-Have Toy Story is the second, stand-alone prequel novella to Robert Bryndza's smash-hit Coco Pinchard series. A sparkling feel-good Christmas comedy, which asks the question - how far would you go to get your child the must-have Christmas toy?
It's December 1992, and children are going crazy for the Tracy Island toy - almost as crazy as the parents! Christmas day is fast approaching and Coco Pinchard is desperately trying to track one down for her four-year-old son Rosencrantz.
Throw into the mix a horrible boss, a lazy husband, and the prospect of her in-laws arriving for the festivities, and Coco wishes she could cancel Christmas and sail off to a desert island somewhere - preferably with the gorgeous-yet-unattainable Tom from work.
But retail therapy is at hand! Coco's faithful friends Chris and Marika rally round, and even her mother-in-law Ethel tries to help in her own eccentric way.
From dodgy dealings in a motorway lay-by, to extreme shopping in Hamley's with a Sylvanian Families fanatic, to having a go at the Blue Peter make-your-own Tracy Island, Coco tries everything in the hope that Rosencrantz will open his must-have toy on Christmas morning.
