Could it be Noddy in Toyland/The Noddy Shop? That was a toyshop, not a toy workshop. However, it definitely had a Jack-in-the-Box.

Have you tried looking at examples on the Sliding Scale of Living Toys and Living Toys pages to see if anything looks familiar? - 13

These posts suggests Two Plus You had a similar premise to this (with a toy shop rather than a toy workshop), however that series seems to be impossible to find clips/stills of online

One of the posts says that it aired on PBS affiliates in the US

http://www.rickstv.com/tvo/twoplusyou.html - This link has a list of episode titles and a very short description of the show

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0212703/ The IMDB page has very little info unfortunately

https://www.reddit.com/r/tipofmytongue/comments/3873g0/tomtchildrens_tv_show/ - someone else on reddit mentioning this show

If this isn't the right show, then I'm totally stumped
