I'm looking for a kids movie I used to watch in the 1990's. It was either made in the 1980's or 1990's.

It was about a boy. I believe he breaks into some type of store or toy store and then goes into another world and is trying to escape.

I'm not sure if it was animated or only partially animated but I do know that is was scary and creepy back then.

I know you have mentioned about a toy store, but still, hope you're not talking about Jumanji –  Incognito Mar 5 '14 at 4:29
Nope not Jumanji but thank you –  user8370 Mar 5 '14 at 5:19
Ok, another try, was it The Pagemaster en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pagemaster, a kid enters a library to escape storm and then enters animated illustration world! –  Incognito Mar 5 '14 at 6:38
@Incognito your guesses are not related to provided details. Sometimes this approach can work but currently it doesn't seems helping :) –  Ankit Sharma Mar 5 '14 at 7:13
Yes, I Agree! :) These are the two I recalled –  Incognito Mar 5 '14 at 7:15

Do you mean "The Never Ending Story?". There are three movies in the series, and from what I remember.

NES1 - The kid gets a book from a book store, hides out in an attic and gets transported to Fantasia, the fantasy world. The movie scared me as a kid because of the wolf.

NES2 or 3, can't remember - The kid has the book, is being chased by bully's and hides out in a library, reading the book to escape in Fantasia.

Sorry about it sounding so vague but you haven't given us much to work on.

Have you read comments? –  Ankit Sharma Mar 6 '14 at 5:00

"The Pagemaster" starts in "real world" then becomes animated... The Neverending Story has no animation and is basically large stuffed animals but could be it also...

Hello and welcome to the Movies and TV Stack Exchange! Whilst your answer may well be correct, please note that the first film you suggest was ruled out in the comments under the question and the second film was posted as an answer by another user months ago. Consider fleshing your answer out with more detail or suggesting an alternative movie, as the answer doesn't contribute much as it stands.
