Thanks for all of your comments. I actually dislike toy pictures myself but as I set this up in my head it kinda made me laugh thinking about it. The entire shoot took about 2 hours because I continued shooting from various angles and with more and less toys in the picture. I wanted to get a shot more from Ground level but when I would get the shot from that perspective it would make all the toys look like they were mixed together and the picture was very busy and it was a totally different effect that didnt show what I was trying to portray. I couldnt get the lighting correct either because the there are alot of windows in the playroom and outside was cloudy and then sunny and it became frustrating trying to deal with so I just dialed in 1600 Iso and waited for a cloud to cover the sun. Over all I still am not crazy about the shot but it does make me LAUGH!

i like the guy helping the other out of the box. i think it would be interesting to see a shot from a lower perspective. lilke you were seeing it out of their eyes.

I love this one! elmo looks a tad out of focus, but this doesnt detract from the way this is so cleverly set up. I just wish it was a bit bigger!

You might get "hammered" cuz "toy shots" don't do very well on this site and you have a bunlde of them here. I like this shot, its funny, well set up and while focus and lighting could be better in some spots it shows creativity and you made me laugh! very cool!

Haha! Lookit elmo ahaha. Honestly, if you had really set this up and focused on lighting, and the composition - it'd be a great photo! The idea is already awesome. :)

This is excellent. The scene has incredible dynamics although it was clearly arranged from static pieces.

I just dislike photos with toys, puppets, plastic ducks, etc. This one is cleverly "animated", I guess, but still not a winner for me. Sorry. 3.

I love the idea behind this :) I just wish it was a little sharper.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think this picture would have benefitted greatly from a perspective closer to the ground.
