At a carnival, young Josh Baskin (HANKS) wishes he was big - only to awake the next morning and discover he is! With the help of his friend Billy, Josh lands a job at a toy company. There, his inner wisdom enables him to successfully predict what children want to buy, making the awestruck, naive Josh irresistible to a beautiful ladder-climbing colleague. But the more he experiences being an adult, the more Josh longs for the simple joys of childhood.

Character mistake: When Tom Hanks starts to play on the floor piano he throws the bag he is carrying aside and when he goes to leave he doesn't pick it up. He leaves it on the floor.
