The main premise for the plot is Tommy's discs, which are often taken and threatened to be destroyed. They aren't toys but it's a similar theme.

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.
