ToyTime is an area in a VideoGame that is themed around children's toys, set in a toy store/factory/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 (especially blocks moving back and forth across a bottomless pit), 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]].

Sometimes, the toys are the actual characters - LivingToys.

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.



In the most whimsical cases, it's a {{subtrope}} of {{Wackyland}}. See also LevelAte, the edible version.

* ''Toy Commander'' was a 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.

* The Mario Zone in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioLand2SixGoldenCoins'' seems to qualify.

* The Mario Zone in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioLand2SixGoldenCoins'' seems to qualify.''VideoGame/SuperMarioLand2SixGoldenCoins,'' though taking place in a giant Mario robot, has the insides composed of giant toy blocks and simple toys serving as background items and obstacles.



* ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' has several darker versions of Toytime. In ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaChronicles Chronicles]]'', Stage 6 is the Tower of Dolls and Mirrors, where toys come to life and attack you. ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow Dawn of Sorrow]]'' revisits this with the latter half of Demon Guest House, with faded playroom wallpaper, broken toys in the background, and demon clowns and living dolls as enemies. To top it off, the boss is a giant wooden head on strings that spits out dolls to attack.

* The ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' series has several. [[VideoGame/MegaMan7 Spring Man]], [[VideoGame/MegaMan8 Clown Man]], & Magic Man's levels in the original series are probably the best examples. The first ''VideoGame/MegaManZX'' game has a rather subversion as the light mood the level tries to achieve is completely ruined by the fact that it's also the place where Vent & Aile's mother was murdered when they were little.

* The Toy Factory dungeon in ''RagnarokOnline'' mixes this and Christmas themes. It even has a [[BadSanta Santa Claus-like monster]] lurking by there.
