Vídeo Brinquedo (literally Toy Video in Portuguese, also non-literally translated as "Toyland Video") is a Brazilian animation studio, located in São Paulo, that produced low-budget, poorly made, direct-to-video animated films widely viewed as mockbusters of comparable films from Walt Disney Pictures, Pixar Animation Studios, DreamWorks Animation, 20th Century Fox, Blue Sky Studios and Hasbro. Effectively, it is the animation counterpart of The Asylum. The company was founded in 1994 to distribute children's animation with the intention of distribution in its home market of Brazil, as well as to other global markets. In 2010, the company stopped animating movies.

Why Their Films Suck
- Poor 3D rendering of characters and backgrounds.
- Terrible animation, even for 2000s standards.
- Most of them are obvious mockbusters/rip-offs of other well-known animated movies.
- Horrible Portuguese and English voice acting.
- God-awful plots and storytelling which ripoff a lot of films.
- Unfunny and weak humor.
- Generic-looking title cards in most films.
- Terrible writing that just doesn't capture the charm of the ripped-off movies.
- Loads of padding.
- Dreadful soundtracks.
- Cringeworthy dialogue.
- As mentioned above, there is usually a lot of filler in their movies, and it is usually painful to get through. For example, in Ratatoing, around the first 10 minutes or so is just repetitive comments and feedback on the food at the restaurant.
The ONLY Redeeming Quality
- The voice acting in the English dub is actually pretty good (except for Ratatoing), as most of the voice actors who were cast for the English dub tried putting some effort in. However, the cast usually chosen for the dubs weren't big voice actors like Tom Kenny, Tara Strong, Jessica DiCicco, Mandy Moore, Rob Paulsen, Daveigh Chase, Colleen Villard, Debi Derryberry, Grey DeLisle, Cathy Cavadini, Kath Soucie, Elizabeth Daily, Jim Cummings or Billy West it was the same cast used for dubbing anime into English by 4Kids Entertainment, but they still did put in some great effort, especially Dan Green, Lisa Ortiz, Veronica Taylor, Erica Schroeder, Amanda Brown, Kerry Williams, Amy Palant, Kayzie Rogers, Andi Whaley, Mollie Weaver, Kether Donohue, Rebecca Soler, Cassandra Lee Morris, Michael Sinterniklaas, Liza Jacqueline, Eileen Stevens, Jason Griffith, Marc Diraison, Ted Lewis, Eric Stuart, Andrew Rannells, Wayne Grayson and Mike Pollock.
- Believe it or not, they used to distribute DVDs for TV shows like Sonic X, The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Kirby Right Back At Ya!, and The Little Lulu Show in Brazil.
