Unruly Toy Photography

These Toy Photographs Show the Trouble Our Toys Get Into

— February 3, 2014 — Pop Culture
These hilarious toy photographs come courtesy of the VSE OK Tumblr account.

The often humorous and always clever toy photographs capture these inanimate objects in such a way as to give the illusion that they are alive. Rather than capturing every movement of the toy and create a fluid sense of motion, the photographer deliberately leaves out photos and we add in the motion ourselves in our minds. The fact that the toys are highly detailed only enhances the sense of life in these toy photographs. Bruce Lee is seen practicing his martial arts on fruits, and Tony Montana is caught snorting a bunch of flower, similar to how he did in the movie Scarface (except with cocaine).

While one would like to believe that our toys act like those in Toy Story, it would appear that they are not as well behaved as one would hope.
