The main character destroys an expensive object (not a toy) that the rest of the cast got him as a present
(Edit) Also as someone says, Kel loses his pet rock though it can be retrieved in a sidequest. Basil’s photo album is also damaged, then stolen to be repaired, then thrown away and retrieved to be (mostly) put back together

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.

There are lots of toys throughout the movie, and I think some or many are destroyed. You can see stuffing float through the air at one point. It’s hard to tell what’s going on so I might have missed something, but I didn’t notice one special toy be destroyed that caused significant distress
