Toy Dance Partyby Paul Zelinsky
Synopses & Reviews
LUMPHY, STINGRAY, AND Plastic are back! In this sequel to the hugely successful Toys Go Out, the lovable trio finds that their little girl has left for winter vacation and taken a box of dominoes, a stegosaurus puzzle, and two Barbie dolls—but not them. Could she have forgotten them?
As the girl starts to grow up, the three best friends must join together to brave a blizzard, save the toy mice from the vacuum, and make sure that they’ll always have the little girl’s love. (And they still have time to throw an all-out dance party with the washing machine!)
When the little girl goes away for winter vacation and they are left behind, toys Lumphy, StingRay, and Plastic keep the house in order, save the toy mice from the vacuum, and have a little fun of their own by throwing themselves a dance party in the washing machine that is sure to go down on record as the event of the year! 30,000 first printing.
Six stories relate further adventures of three best friends, who happen to be toys, as they encounter a fearsome (possible) shark, enjoy a dance party, and deal with rejection by The Girl, who is growing up.
