First let me apologize for the lack of detail on this, but I was probably around 6 years old when I saw this movie. All I can remember is that the movie started out with a little boy around 6 or 7 years of age playing in his room, and there being a fire truck outside. I seem to recall the boy being transported into another world and meeting weird humonoid creatures (I think they were all short). The movie was live-action and could have been made anytime between 1980 and 1998.

Welcome, druciferre. How long ago did you see this? Was the other world animated or live action? – FredH May 27 '13 at 13:15
Movie was live action, and I would have seen it in the mid 90's, but honestly, it could have been as old as 1980. – druciferre May 27 '13 at 15:09
Do you remember why there was a fire truck outside? – ThinkingMedia May 27 '13 at 17:28

I think of Time Bandits when reading your description. Only thing is that the fire truck is at the end of the movie and the boy is a little older.

+1 In spite of the lack of detail, I find it hard to believe that the description could fit any other movie. :) – ghoppe May 27 '13 at 21:09
+1 for having very little to go on, and it being somewhat inaccurate to begin with – druciferre May 27 '13 at 23:25
+1 I would never have connected the two until I read your answer. – ThinkingMedia May 27 '13 at 23:25
