Publisher Description

Emily Jenkins pens tales that spark the imagination of young readers. In this sequel to the wildly popular Toys Go Out, Lumphy, Stingray, and Plastic return for a whole new set of adventures. Their little girl is leaving for winter vacation, but she's forgotten to take them! In these rousing stories, the lovable toys spend their time alone surviving the perils of a blizzard, rescuing the toy mice from the vacuum, and, of course, having a rockin' dance party with the washing machine. ''Whether or not they are familiar with the toys' first round of adventures, chapter-book readers will welcome these gently humorous tales ''- Booklist

"The sequel is even more charming than the first book--how rare is that? The toys, Sting Ray/Lumphy/and Plastic are back with their squabbling and laugh-out-loud antics and if actual toys were made of these characters I would totally buy them. Especially that toughy buffalo--and bossy stingray. They make me smile. A LOT!! :))))) Try it for a read aloud at bedtime."

    " Sadder and more wistful than the first Toys book, with a bit more plot and peril. Isn't quite as wonderful as the first book, but it still has many terrific and funny scenes with our three favorite toys, plus a dykey new shark named Spark. "

    " Enough funny adult parts for me to enjoy reading it. The story moved fast enough for my 5 year old to enjoy it as well. All of the toys were personified in a way that both the kiddo and I found believable. Sort of like a Velveteen Rabbit with much more comedy and way fewer tears. "

    " I liked this book even better than "Toys Go Out". It was laugh-out-loud funny at times. Talking toy animals, talking towels(!), a talking/singing washing maching named Frank all interact while the people of the house are unaware. Surprisingly, the book has much to say about friendship. "
