Toy Box is a twenty minute musical by Teresa Lotz and Will Buck. It is a very loose adaptation of The Velveteen Rabbit. Velveteen, a young and naive stuffed rabbit is thrown into the toy box where he meets Tank, a muscular hard-headed remote-control War-Tank and Horse, an old and grumpy skin horse figurine that is wise and much older than the others. As Velveteen tries to make sense of what has happened to him he learns about The Boy who may or may not ever come back for his toys.
Toy Box received a professional reading in May of 2012 at New York University.
