7/2008 This follow-up to [b:Toys Go Out|24686|Toys Go Out Being the Adventures of a Knowledgeable Stingray, a Toughy Little Buffalo, and Someone Called Plastic|Emily Jenkins|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1320460084s/24686.jpg|25521] was fun, though it suffers in comparison. I found it a little too preachy, a little too obvious, and just not as joyful. The undertone of snark that I adored in TGO was missing. There were moments of delight, though, when our friends Stingray and Lumphy get in over their fuzzy little heads, and their hatred of Barbie made me laugh.

This book manages to have female characters without making it about a single girl. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375839356, Hardcover)

Here is the second book in the highly acclaimed Toys Trilogy, which includes the companion books Toys Go Out and Toys Come Home.

Lumphy, Stingray, and Plastic are back! And this time the lovable trio finds that their little girl has left for winter vacation and taken a box of dominoes, a stegosaurus puzzle, and two Barbie dolls—but not them. Could she have forgotten them?

As the girl starts to grow up, the three best friends must join together to brave a blizzard, save the toy mice from the vacuum, and make sure that they’ll always have the little girl’s love. (And they still have time to throw an all-out dance party with the washing machine!)

Six stories relate further adventures of three best friends, who happen to be toys, as they encounter a fearsome (possible) shark, enjoy a dance party, and deal with rejection by The Girl, who is growing up.
