The toys come to life and kill. Sarah also finds out that Joe’s son is a robot. So, Sarah has to stop the toys from killing her son!


Review: I watched this one the most as a kid. I love this one. It’s the best in the series. Mickey Rooney was really funny when he was verbally abusing his son. It’s a definite improvement over the 3rd and 4th films.
