As the player, you roam around the factory and collect VHS tapes to solve the mystery of what happened. You must solve puzzles while trying to survive the “vengeful toys” left behind. The factory’s most popular toy “Huggy Wuggy” – a giant, horrifying blue creature with bulging eyes, wide red lips, and long limbs – actively follows you around as you try to complete the game. He appears in the dark unexpectedly to try and catch you. If you get caught, Huggy Wuggy bears his wide and sinister grin and eats you. Players complete Chapter 1 by finding Poppy the doll.

Poppy Playtime is a unique horror game that is sure to scare and excite players. The added buzz around the game since it’s released in an episodic manner only adds to the hype. While the game is only available on PC, there are multiple copycat versions of it for children to download and play on Roblox, Minecraft, and all app stores. It’s important to note that none of these games are age-restricted. Poppy Playtime is also a part of the streaming phenomenon on YouTube, with popular YouTubers recording themselves playing the game and reacting to it. While the playthrough videos are not available on YouTube Kids, there are lots of videos with associated content specifically for children that would encourage them to seek out the source. It’s important to note that while children may not have played Poppy Playtime themselves, they may have watched a video of someone else playing it.

In danger of hiding from toys there is a toy of yours, the Grabpack. The Grabpack is similar to sticky hands and acts as an electrical conductor to power the puzzles to come. It can also grab small objects and reach far away places to reach. It’s a unique feature and offers players a new way to interact with the game beyond just walking through the facility. As you bring energy back into the structure, discover the second hand needed to progress through the rest of the game.

One of the best uses for this toy is when you make your way to the Make-A-Friend section of the facility. Put infrastructure together and solve puzzles by powering the Make-A-Friend machine. Once you’ve brought the system to life, you can create your own toy from head to toe and unlock the next part of the game. Most of your time in the factory revolves around getting the toy factory up and running again. It’s almost like picking up the pieces and putting them back together.
