Kaboose Review: A discarded silk top hat magically brings a snowman to life, then becomes the focus of a struggle between a greedy magician and a group of schoolchildren. Realizing that Frosty will melt unless he takes refuge in a colder climate, he and a young friend stow away on a freight train headed for the North Pole. Will they make it there before he melts? And will the magician steal back his hat? Yeah, we all know the answer, but let’s pretend we don’t. Great for all ages.
