This story is so very original but strangely familiar to my heart when I read it. It is like a hardcore version of ToyStory if Andy got kidnapped by a nightmare and taken into the dark recesses of his closet. Heart warming, charming, and strangly profound. Saying it is like ToyStory ultimately hinders its genuinity and unique characters and the fear and unseen duty toys have for the child they guard. 10/10.
