Rumplestiltskin - In a far away country, a miller, wishing to gain favor with the king, tells the king that his beautiful daughter can spin straw into gold. The greedy king immediately locks her into a stone room filled with straw and demands that she spin the straw into gold - or die. A mysterious little man comes to her aid, but demands a high price for his help - her first child! How will the miller's daughter solve the riddle that will save her child? The classic story unfolds through music, dance, narration and clever effects! Dancer in a Box plays with the idea of traditional Jack-in-the-Box toy. A dancer-like toy pops up and dances whenever the music stops.
