Toys Go Out is a middle grade novel that follows 3 toy friends that come to life when their little girl goes to sleep. Lumphy (stuffed buffalo), Sting Ray (dry clean only), and Plastic (a bouncy ball) are the main characters with distinct (albeit simple) personalities. The primary story revolves around the desire to be the toy that gets to sleep in the little girl’s bed at night (sound familiar?). Some of the adventures include a trip in the washing machine and being grabbed by a garbage shark (maybe the best descriptor of a dog ever) at the beach. I’m not sure why I thought reading another book about toys coming to life was going to be a vastly different reading experience from The Doll People. [Spoiler alert: It wasn’t.] However, if you're looking for a fairly straightforward reading experience for your 10-12 year old then this will fit the bill nicely. 5/10 because I love a good sarcastic toy.

Topics discussed: insecurities, search for identity, and finding your place. ( )

I love the picture book Toys Meet Snow, and this is in just the same vein, but a chapter book. The spirit is strongly reminiscent of Winnie-the-Pooh (including the chapter headings - see below) and Bunnicula, with the toys/animals having a world of their own apart from the story's humans.

In the Backpack, Where It Is Very Dark
The Serious Problem of Plastic-ness
The Terrifying Bigness of the Washing Machine
The Possible Shark
How Lumphy Got on the Big High Bed and Lost Something Rather Good-Looking
It Is Difficult to Find the Right Birthday Present

Rarely am I as disappointed in a 'classic' as I was with this one. I will admit that this was a DNF. I was reading this out loud to my 5 year old, but finding so little enjoyment in it that I almost jumped up with joy when he finally told me that he didn't really care all that much for it. I was getting so weary reading it and really would have wanted nothing more than to never see the book again, yet I reiterated to him whether he would just like to pause and then resume the reading later, but he said "no, let's just return it to the library, mommy, it's not a very good book".

I'm still not sure though why it just wasn't to our liking. The premise should have been fine, after all my kid has a plethora of stuffed animals which he revers. He has a furry shark (who doubles as a pillow), a funny orange monkey with long arms and legs, stuffed dogs, dolphins, teddies, a lamb with a bell inside its belly, a little satin crab filled with rice, a silky soft otter in a handbag, a blue elephant with a lullaby music box inside, and his favorite: a skinny pink pig who could be straight out of Elephant and Piggie. But they all seem to have a lot more character, spunk and brains than the toys in this book. Which may be why we got so exasperated with them only four chapters into the story.

It did feel unimaginative, mundane, boring, obnoxious and derivative. It's possible my son might have enjoyed this more had he been younger, say three or four. It's a safe story, not too scary. I do suspect that a lot of three year olds could get fidgety though, as the story drags quite a bit.

A little research reveals that we have already read two books by this author previously. They were [b:Water in the Park|16156164|Water in the Park A Book About Water and the Times of the Day|Emily Jenkins|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1371432504s/16156164.jpg|20477101] and [b:What Happens on Wednesdays|740778|What Happens on Wednesdays|Emily Jenkins|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1317792978s/740778.jpg|726944]. We found both to be equally bland, equally tedious and equally unremarkable. I am going to rate this book two stars, as I did have a hint of sympathy for the Stingray character, and I reckon that some kids will take to this story. Meanwhile, we can recommend the books about Old Bear as a charming, witty alternative series about toys who come to life. These toys are clever, resourceful and caring, and all in all just way more interesting. ( )
