The Toybox was a Doctor Who Adventures comic strip published in 2012.
Having saved a forest from flooding on the planet Guzan the The Doctor and Decky Flamboon are waved goodbye by the native creatures only to be shook around in the TARDIS as something seems to be moving it. The Doctor bangs his head and awakes a few hours later with Decky explaining that the shaking stopped after a while but instead the TARDIS (lying on its side) has become full of random, brightly coloured giant objects. Trying to find away across to the console they are startled by an armed soldier — a toy soldier complete with a pull string. Elsewhere on the planet Guzan, Reethe (a giant orange native youngster), is playing in his room. With his mother's voice threatening to throw away any of his toys not tidied away, Reethe is looking very pleased with himself. On the floor of his room lies the TARDIS on its side, a wooden box big enough to hold (and hide), all his toys! Inside the Toybox the TARDIS has reached the control by making the soldier's pull string into a lasso to upright the TARDIS. With the flick of a lever all the toys are expelled from the TARDIS back into the youngster's bedroom... just as his mother walks in!
