Killer toys are fictional characters, usually based on toys, dolls or puppets that have been possessed by demons, monsters, ghosts, supernatural creatures, dark magic or in the case of Small Soldiers, military technology. Due to their association with childhood innocence and their resemblance to human beings, dolls and puppets have long been the subject of horror stories and modern tastes have not forgotten such stories, allowing the evil puppet/doll subgenre of villainy to survive as a strong contender in the world of horror and the supernatural. An early exemplar of the trope is the Ventriloquist's dummy episode of Dead of Night, starring Michael Redgrave as the vent, and John Maguire as the dummy. Killer toys are common trope in television and film, whereby a child's dolls and toys is in someway capable of magic, often causing harm to adults who are seen as in some way against the doll's owner, usually a child. The Killer toys is based on pediophobia and automatonophobia, the fear of dolls, toys or ventriloquist's dummies.
