In a world where the hottest kid’s toys are based on real people, a ragtag class of students must prove they’re the best toys for the job, competing against friends and enemies at Dollington Academy to achieve action figure fame…all while being just 6 inches tall. 
 
Toyetica is the story of Trixie Tangle, a tiny Bittle student, whose race of small people live alongside humans in everyday life…working, playing and most importantly, landing toy model contracts. With the right theme, the best accessories and a catchy name, bittle students can nab the role of a lifetime as highly-paid models for human children’s toys. Luckily for Trixie, she’s been accepted to Dollington Academy, the best of the best in toy prep schools!

The bad news is that Trixie’s not even sure what kind of toy she wants to be. Her friends are fellow class misfits and they’ve all just stumbled onto something terrible from the past, lurking under the surface of the school and threatening to forever change their world.
 
If you love My Little Pony, Gravity Falls and Steven Universe, you’ll love the friendship, humor and emotion that Toyetica reveals, as Trixie and her friends unite to help the students of Dollington every day, defeat the forces of evil and prank rival school Mecha Tech within an inch of their tiny lives.

Mysteries and clue-hunting run deep throughout the series, in the vein of  The Da Vinci Code and National Treasure, with cameos, puzzles, codes and ciphers for fans to follow along and unravel for themselves. Toyetica doesn’t just ask you to read it: it pulls you in to discover all of its secrets and think outside the toybox.
 
LeGrow comments, “Toyetica isn’t about the perfect toy model, the princess with a million accessories and a pony and a lot of market appeal. It’s about the other toys who don’t have the glossy packaging, the right theme, the shiny outfit. And it’s about the toys who never really wanted those things to begin with, because they’ve got bigger dreams than what the world wants them to do. I’ve always felt that I wouldn’t mind being put in a box, so long as I get to pick the box I go in. It’s when other people choose it for me that I start to think outside of it.”
