** The trope was parodied in a one-time sketch featuring Amanda as a little girl who was too scared to sleep during a thunderstorm. Her parents give her "Rockabye Ralph," a talking doll that spouts off cutesy catchphrases about bedtime ("I LOVE YOU! TIME TO GO SLEEPY!" et. al.). Amanda's pleased with the doll at first...until he refuses to ''stop'' chattering even as she tries to actually sleep. She tries everything she can think of to stop Ralph, but he won't quit bothering her: she pulls out his batteries and he keeps talking; she throws him out the window, and he flies right back in; she slams his head in a drawer, and he doesn't stop; and finally, she has her dog eat the doll, which seems to do the trick...[[HereWeGoAgain until Ralph's voices starts coming from the pet's stomach.]]

* Parodied in one of the [[ParodyCommercial Oxymoron Commercials]] in ''WesternAnimation/SheepInTheBigCity'' which advertises a robot toy that's SO COOL, it can do ''anything'': walk, talk (in both English and French), cook, hold down a good job, take out the garbage, and "party all night long." The trouble is that the robot is so incredibly awesome that it's inevitably better than any child who might own it, leading to the slogan: "IT'S ''COOLER'' THAN ''YOU!''"



** Rockabye Ralph, a doll who wouldn't let Amanda go to sleep with his constant bicker.

* ''Series/TheBigComfyCouch'' has Molly the Dolly, Loonette's best friend. She's a puppet who [[TheMute can't talk]] and instead expresses herself in word bubbles, which Loonette can easily understand. Their relationship borders on sisterly--many episodes open with Loonette mentioning a topic, Molly not understanding it, and the former proceeding to explain how it works.

* ''VideoGame/TinkerQuarry'': The Dollhouse is a world inhabited by living toy animals. Most, if not all, are implied to have previously belonged to the protagonist, a little girl who somehow ends up in the Dollhouse.

* Depends on your definition of "evil", but: In ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', there was [[AliceAllusion Alice]], originally a doll with a spirit inside her that stood on a mantle of a faculty lounge in the school. After a student blamed a card for his poor dueling and tore it in half (it was an Obelisk student, [[SarcasmMode big surprise]]), she grew to hate duelists, and wanted to punish them. She lured Judai into a Shadow Duel in an attempt to drive him to a DespairEventHorizon, using a deck full of monsters resembling evil dolls, but Judai's vibrant personality never wavered, and he convinced her to reject despair and [[PowerOfFriendship accept hope]]. When last seen, she was back on the mantle again - smiling.
** A similar villain was Princess Cologne from the manga version of ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'', who worked for [[BigBad Dr. Faker]] because he gave her a soul a threatened to take it from her if she failed him. As it turned out, she had once been a doll who was thrown away by a rich girl [[spoiler:who happened to be Cathy. Cathy realized her mistake and apologized, and despite failing her mission, she was saved from that grim punishment by her friend Grandpa Demetto, who gave her ''his'' soul to save her. (He may or may not have been a LivingToy as well, along with someone who could fix them; it wasn't clear exactly what he was.)]]
*** She also [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Princess_Cologne_(card) has an actual card in the game]] with her likeness, and that does seem to fit the overall Trope too, although she seems even ''less'' evil here, given the effect.
* In ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', roughly half of Sora Shiun'in's deck consists of monsters called Fluffal, cute, cuddly stuffed animals that better fit the Good examples above. However, by fusing them with Fiends called Edge Imps (the other half of his deck) he can summon his aces, Fusion Monsters called Frightfurs, which are demonic corruptions of the Fluffals covered with knives and blades.

* In ''Anime/ZatchBell'', mamonos are pretty much demons who have taken the form of dolls. Zatch himself is a decent sort, but many others clearly are not.

* WreckItRalph is the electronic version of this trope, featuring video game characters that come to life when their games are not being played. Similar to Toy Story, there seems to be a {{Masquerade}} in effect.
