The adage "less is more" works very nicely here. You provide the audience with as little information as possible with the exception of a few signifiers that would suggest that these are over-polished toy dolls. Which brings me to the rips on the edges. I understand your reasoning for it. Is there another way you could insinuate that these are toy-esque? What if you did the bold/emboss to make it look like it was a plastic box for instance.
Also little technical things.... please don't cut off the hands/fingers! I think they're important. No?
Cannot wait to see more!
