It's tough for sequels to surpass the One that started it all. The first one is a classic no doubt but.. how they managed to pull off a second 'home alone' incident was carried flawlessly! With more laughs, traps, and warm heart... I think they nailed it (no pun intended) with this one! I personally enjoyed the bird woman side story over the shovel man. Additionally, their charming toy store is one that kids only *dream* about and was seriously beautifully done. It reignited the spirit of my precious childhood awe and wonders! That's priceless. So, the second one, hands down!
