* Commercials for [[NerfBrand Nerf]] guns and [[WaterGunsAndBalloons Super Soakers]] often cross into this territory. Large groups of children or teens are often depicted playing on courses that seem more suited to paint ball or even military training than for guns that shoot foam darts or water.

For action figures, the children have set up an elaborate play environment made of rocks and sticks that must have taken ''hours'' more to assemble than the 30 seconds seen that it took to play in.

This is not to say that [[TruthInTelevision there aren't kids out there who don't make their own playsets]], but the trope is to make the toys seem even more exciting to the potential buyer. Toy manufacturers sometimes put a disclaimer to the effect of "background set not available" at the bottom of their commercials if they're playing this trope straight.
