This was my least favorite story in the collection. I kept thinking it reminded me of a story in Nightmares and Dreamscapes but what it really is, is that the series on TNT Nightmares and Dreamscapes featured this story. Anyone remember that?


Kandice | 4142 comments I do, Angie, and I have never really liked it either.


Betsy Boo (betsyboo) | 195 comments I kind of liked it. I love how the guy thinks he's gonna win 'cause after-all, they're just toys. You can almost hear him thinking, "This is not happening" as the toys continue to get the jump on him. And I really like the way it ended. BTW, I bought that "TNT Nightmares and Dreamscapes". I thought they did a really good job with the stories.

I kept picturing the sequence from the TNT series while reading this. In truth, I felt that the story moved too quickly, while the TV version staged it more slowly, building the weirdness of the situation more.

Rachel | 701 comments I also thought of the TNT miniseries when i read this story. Not my favorite, but a fun concept. I think a couple stories in that miniseries were taken from other collections.

Michael Roberts (michaelroberts) It's like evil Toy Story! Could you imagine seeing this in Pixar animation?


Betsy Boo (betsyboo) | 195 comments Yeah...and who didn't think of this story when they saw that movie "Small Soldiers"?


Rachel | 701 comments I totally thought of the toy soldiers in Toy Story when i read this.

Anna | 64 comments This did make me think of the toy soliders in Toy Story! not one of my favorites that I've read so far but still good.


alicia grant (shesha34) I did not care for this one very much.I guess soldier toys are not my cup of tea.


Scott | 401 comments This story reminded me of "Prey" by Richard Matheson. I read it in high school at some point.

I also remember seeing the TNT N&D show. I wish they would reshow those again. I missed some of them.

I am going to have to look around for it... it would be really great if it was on Netflix! But it's probably not :(


Kit★ (xkittyxlzt) | 609 comments You can get the N&D DVD set at Walmart for about $15, maybe less, it's in the rack with the TV show sets. Or used could be good, I got mine used at BuyBacks for like $4 :)


Kit★ (xkittyxlzt) | 609 comments I liked this story, though I have to agree with the thinking that they were toys, I wouldn't have thought I'd be defeated by them eitherlol.


Matthew Behling (MattyKB) | 109 comments Angie, just bought the series at WalMart for 12 bucks.
