Why is Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium rated G? Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium is rated G by the MPAA

Although this movie takes place in a toy store, in many ways it is an adult story about regaining childhood dreams and believing in oneself. Moving at a gentle pace, the film has few content issues aside from a brief mild profanity and some moments of peril in the toy store. The biggest concern for parents may be the discussion of impending death and the idea of reincarnation.
