Why settle for a picture, or even a thousand words, when you can watch a toy move for itself? Over the past months, TDmonthly Magazine has shot hundreds of toys in motion so that you can judge size relation, materials and quality before buying. Mr. ToyDirectory demonstrates toys in their packages and out. And the manufacturers themselves demonstrate toys straight from recent trade events. Some of the videos take up to 2 to 10 minutes to load, depending on your system, so feel free to browse our articles and other new toys while waiting for the show to begin ... (Videos are listed by toy categories below. )
Videography and editing by Alison Marek.

Strawberry Kewpie-licious by Charisma
This 12" vinyl Kewpie is part of a collection based on the illustrations and paintings of Rose O'Neill, which are housed at the Bonniebrook History Society Museum. Strawberry Kewpie-licious carries a box of strawberries, and wears them on her starched apron, too. Red maryjanes complete her outfit. She's been released in a limited edition and is new for 2006.(Watch Video)
