A sheep dances proudly in his southwestern landscape, until one day his wool is sheared and he is left naked. He's depressed and shy, until a cheerful jackalope comes along and shows him how to leap proudly and not to be ashamed.
When a wind-up one-man band toy looks up and sees just how boisterous, BIG, and destructive the baby can be, he does everything he can to flee--even if it means hiding under the couch. But when the baby falls down and gets hurt, the tin toy has to decide on survival, or doing what a toy's got to do.Written by

The number of panes in the reflection of the window from Tin Toy is inconsistent with the number of panes in the shadow cast on the wooden floor. This was deliberate by the 3D modelers as they wanted a cartoon 'bubble'-like feel to the reflection on Tin Toy and not a realistic one. See more »
'Tin Toy' is a wonderful piece of computer animation. It's especially interesting to view after looking at Pixar's 'Toy Story' which was made several years later. I like to see this film as a new twist on the giant monster movie. Here the monster is a drooling baby in pursuit of a wind up toy. The baby stomps around the room with the grace of Godzilla (which is to say no grace at all). Often seeing the baby from the little toy's point of view helps create this monster movie feel as well. This is a hilarious film, with an ending that's all too true to life.
