A doll is torn apart in order to be reused in the opening scene, and it's later burned. Also, I don't know if they count as "toys", but the members of the other world are very doll-like, and they are destroyed in a variety of ways.

Episode 4 of the first season features a plane crash with children on board. A little girl holds a Disney-looking plastic baby doll in her arms, and you just keep seeing this girl clutching her doll while the passengers beg for their lives. The child ultimately dies, and you can tell because there’s a heartbreaking closeup of the now ruined doll among the debris from the crash.
