Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Anita Barnes Lowen
Lumphy, Stingray, and Plastic are learning that growing-up can be painful...especially for toys that might be left behind. It seems The Girl prefers those awful plastic Barbies. They got to go on vacation with her and to a slumber party, while the one-time most special toys got left at home. Of course, The Girl does not completely ignore them; she even takes the blame for some of their bad behavior, but even with her declaration that she loves them and will keep them forever, the toys know in their hearts that she does not love them as much as she used to. For the moment, just being together is enough for the toys. A delightful tale of the adventures and misadventures of three best friends who brave a blizzard to find The Girl...and do not get much further than a wet soggy hole in the snow. The toys learn to cope with the newest addition to the toy box—a garbage-eating fearsome fiend of the briny deep, a great white shark. The toys even exact some sticky revenge on those Barbies! There is fun and naughtiness and a riotous dance party in the laundry room with Frank, the singing washing machine and Dryer (all better now that the repairman has come). This story has a sweet old fashioned feel, with its soft black and white illustrations that just begs to be read aloud at bedtime Reviewer: Anita Barnes Lowen
School Library Journal

Gr 1-3

Jenkins continues the adventures of Lumphy, Stingray, and Plastic, which began in Toys Go Out (Random, 2006). This charming fantasy about friendship explores their feelings and fears. The Girl who owns them is growing up and they are worried that she is leaving them behind. Telling the story from the point of view of the toys helps children to view these concerns in a nonthreatening light. In six new escapades, the toys learn to stick together and help solve their predicaments. Each new adventure builds anticipation and apprehension as the toys struggle for a satisfactory conclusion. Humor-laced language creates visual images as well as unusual sounds (e.g., "rumpa, lumpa"). Zelinsky's cleverly detailed black-and-white illustrations are amusing and add to the overall pleasure in the book. Beginning chapter-book readers will enjoy the pace of each episode. Toy Dance Party also makes a great read-aloud.-Margaret R. Tassia, Millersville University, PA

Kirkus Reviews
Even more tender than its predecessor, these six related stories skillfully capture the bittersweet challenges of childhood independence. Initially featured in Jenkins and Zelinsky's Toys Go Out (2006), this collection stars winsome stuffed buffalo Lumpy, endearing rubber ball Plastic and vulnerable dry-clean-only StingRay. Witty dialogue and humorous scenes enhance these well-developed characters, as the friends realize their cherished girl's growing fondness for Barbies and sleepovers takes precedence over her once-favored toys. Stories center on the new chewing-obsessed toy shark, Spark, who receives quite the unusual welcome, the perilous health of Dryer, unexpected basement parties and the toys' unfortunate experimentation with nail polish. Zelinsky's superlative black-and-white drawings never fail to bring warmth and depth to these chapters. The girl, not completely grown, occasionally still finds comfort with her toys; StingRay wisely notes that she will love them "forever but not as much." Fortunately, StingRay's statement rings false when describing this winning work, whose original fans should enjoy this entry as much as the first. Poignant and compelling, this sequel sparkles. (Fantasy. 5-9)
