* You can argue that all videogames based on ''Franchise/ToyStory'' have this, the main characters are always living toys and the enemies usually are, and levels take place in kids' rooms and places like toy stores, the best example is [[{{VideoGame/ToyStory}} the game based on the original movie]].

ToyTime is an area in a VideoGame themed around children's toys, set in a toy store/factory/amusement park/closet/box/etc., or even completely made of toys. The toys may or may not be [[MacroZone giant]]. Expect to see a lot of [[SugarBowl sugary cute]] enemies [[EverythingTryingToKillYou trying to kill you]].

ToyTime tends to include primarily simple or old-fashioned toys for some reason. Expect to see lots of blocks, toy soldiers, balls, and so forth; this is the case in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy''. Alternatively, ToyTime might just be bright and colorful with architecture that suggests childishness; this is the case with ''VideoGame/PaperMario''. There is a good chance that at least some of the level will be [[BuiltWithLego made of Lego]], but don't expect the game to [[LawyerFriendlyCameo actually mention it]].

ToyTime is usually played as a lighthearted romp through childhood memories, but with just a change of the [[IronicNurseryRhyme background music]] and a few creepy enemies in the stage, [[DarkerAndEdgier it can get a much darker, dissonant tone]]. A Toy Time in a ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]'' game would be far different from Toy Time in ''Franchise/SilentHill''.

* ''Toy Commander'' was a UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast game made entirely of this. The main character was a kid who got a collection of army themed toys for Christmas, and his old toys, lead by a masochistic teddy bear, wanted revenge. The player was tasked to perform various missions using toy aircraft, boats, vehicles, and tiny soldiers to take back rooms of his house that were under assault.
* There are two in ''{{Franchise/Spider-Man}}/{{Comicbook/X-Men}}: [[VideoGame/SpiderManAndTheXMenInArcadesRevenge Arcade's Revenge]]''. Wolverine's stages have toy soldiers, robotic clowns, and killer jack-in-the-boxes. Gambit's stages feature giant robotic Chess pieces.

* GBA Ribbon Road in ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'' . The original track from ''VideoGame/MarioKartSuperCircuit'' didn't fit the trope, simply being a track made of ribbons with some presents in the background. The remake of it, included in the second ''Mario Kart 8'' DLC pack as part of the Super Bell Cup, changes the scenery dramatically, having the track take place in and around a toy castle in a child's bedroom with numerous ''Mario''-themed toys in it.

You'll start seeing things like possessed damaged teddy bears and evil clocks with teeth. Also, the boss of a Party Quest in the same area is a whale-like monster with Uncle Sam-esque nipples and a clock on its head.

* Due to the nature of the setting of ''VideoGame/DynamiteHeaddy'', all areas in the game have at least a little bit of this, if only in the enemies (the [[BossBattle Keymasters]] are so named because they are giant wind-up toys, and plenty of {{Mooks}} have smaller keys), but the toy theme is especially strong in Act 2.

LivingToys especially if the main character is also one. Though in more mundane/realistic settings it isn't uncommon for them to actually be robots or animatronics.
