The Secret Life of Toys: Beach Edition (Photos)

Have you ever wondered what your child’s (or let’s face it, your) toys are doing when you’re not looking? We’ve all seen Toy Story … we know they must be up to something when no one is playing with them! These toys, below, have taken to the beach for one last hurrah before summer ends — thanks to their owners, anyway. Enjoy this cool collection of photos by various photographers who show us what dolls, dinosaurs, soldiers, and stuffed animals do at the beach while we’re not around:
