All Access The Steadfast Action Figure

This is an entry level skit which requires three adults and very few props. While it was written for Valentine's Day, it can be performed at any time of the year. The skit is about what toys do after everyone leaves a toy store, but it's also about abstinence, i.e. waiting until you're married to have sex. It's done in a very innocent way - there is nothing sexual or romantic in this skit.
