Probably the most popular New Year’s toy is a Nutcracker. The story of the Nutcracker is most commonly associated with the ballet "The Nutcracker," which was first performed in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1892. The ballet is based on the German story "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King" by E.T.A. Hoffmann, first published in 1816.

In the story, a young girl named Marie receives a Nutcracker as a gift from her godfather on Christmas Eve. She falls asleep with the Nutcracker in her arms and dreams that the toy has come to life, leading her on a magical journey through a world of toys and sweets. The Nutcracker and Marie face many challenges, including a battle with the evil Mouse King, before they finally arrive at the Land of Sweets, where they have crowned the rulers.

The story of the Nutcracker has become a beloved holiday tradition in many countries, and the ballet is performed annually in many cities during the Christmas season. The ballet is known for its beautiful music, stunning costumes, and captivating story, and it has become an essential part of the holiday season for many people worldwide. The Nutcracker is often displayed as a decoration during the holiday season, and it has become one of the most recognisable symbols of Christmas and the New Year.

Every family that produces Christmas tree decorations and toys always has an assortment of Nutcrackers and other characters from the famous fairy tale.
