ABOUT THIS BOOK

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!)
