Imagine a far darker take on ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', one not at all meant for children. Imagine a story about toys that come to life at night who suddenly find themselves confronted by an ancient evil spirit out to drink the soul of the child who's very imagination gives them their life. Imagine one toy, an outcast jack-in-the-box, given the task of tracking down and destroying that evil spirit.

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: the Plucker comes from Africa but communicates with english-speaking toys. Probably justified in that the Spirit Realm may have means of communication different from ours.

* AFateWorseThanDeath: For toys, being consigned to the attic, where no one remembers you and rats nibble your fingers. It's even worse than the Underbed. [[spoiler:The Plucker's plan for Thomas Braxton is also AFateWorseThanDeath; he wants to possess Thomas' body and send Thomas' soul into a filthy rag-doll.]]



* BadassDamsel: Little Bird, a Chippewa doll from the collection of a neighborhood girl. She's almost as much of a badass as Jack, despite not having a snake's heart to give her courage. She has [[YouKilledMyFather her own reasons]] for wanting to destroy the Plucker.



* DamselInDistress: The Snow Angel, helpless in the clutches of the evil Plucker. Her capture is what spurs Jack into action.

* HollywoodVoodoo: or hoodoo, if Mabelle is to be believed. The Plucker, or Abiku, is inspired by a spirit of the same name in African folklore, his Stickmen definitely resemble ritual effigies, and Mabelle is able to practice hoodoo rituals.
