Three little bears break their mother’s beautiful blue seashell by accident. And so, knowing that they are in a lot of trouble, they quickly set out in their sailboat to find another one to replace it before she discovers what they have done.
With the proliferation of the Marvel/DC Comics-produced movies and cartoons, various forms of character merchandising, and most importantly, peer influence, you can’t blame a kid for aspiring to be a superhero too. But even superheroes have rules to follow, and who better to guide them than the awesome twosome of Lava Boy and Captain Magma?
Oliver and his best friend Troll run a cafe in the woods where they serve delicious cakes to other discerning trolls who choose to dine on these sugary treats rather than children.
Like most kids, Christina Katerina loves all kinds of boxes. So when her family buys a new refrigerator, she immediately claims the large cardboard box that is discarded as her own.
There’s something tragically ironic about toys that are abandoned, à la in the Toy Story trilogy; or, worse, left unplayed on the shelf like Corduroy, who is (initially) deemed damaged goods. Like Corduroy, the eponymous doll in this story suffers the same fate, but for the opposite reason: she’s a collectible vintage doll who is considered too valuable to be played with by children, and thus sits in the window of an antique shop all day.
For one little girl, a trip to the zoo turns out more ‘interactive’ than planned when, one by one, the animals approach her to procure various oddjects for them (yes, the animals can talk and they are pretty persuasive too!).
When the driver of a double-decker bus decides on a whim to break away from the monotony of driving a fixed route every day by literally taking a different road, little does he know that this will lead to an epic road-trip for him and his surprisingly game passengers.
Blessed are the toys — or paper dolls, as the case may be — who have little girls (or boys) who play with them and bring them on adventures, and this is the story of one such little girl’s paperdoll chain, whose names are Ticky, Tacky, Jackie the Backie (so named because her back is, quirkily, permanently turned), Jim with two noses, and Jo with the bow. Then again, you could say that the good fortune is mutual since these imaginary adventures are fun for all.
