Experiment 1006, also known as the Prototype or the robot claw, is the main antagonist of Poppy Playtime.
It was referenced in both Poppy Playtime Chapters 1 and 2.
Experiment 1006 is known to be more dangerous than Huggy Wuggy and Mommy Long Legs.
Playtime Co. created it in the 1960s to entertain children.
However, it started getting violent after some time and murdered the scientists that were studying it.
In a nutshell, the Prototype was an experiment that went horribly wrong.
In this article, you’ll learn more about Experiment 1006 (Prototype Claw) such as its origin, goals, and powers.

Who is the Prototype Claw in Poppy Playtime?
The Prototype Claw in Poppy Playtime is Experiment 1006.
Experiment 1006 is an experiment by Playtime Co. that went horribly wrong.
It was initially created in 1960 to entertain children.
At first, the Prototype was cooperative—similar to other experiments.
After some time, it started getting violent and murdered the scientists that were studying it.
The Prototype Claw is referenced in both Poppy Playtime Chapters 1 and 2.
In Chapter 1, it was mentioned on the death screens and on a VHS tape.
In Chapter 2, it was mentioned in a VHS tape again and at the end of the chapter.
What is Experiment 1006 in Poppy Playtime?
Experiment 1006 in Poppy Playtime is a Prototype Claw created by Playtime Co. in 1960.
The experiment went wrong after some time as it became violent and aggressive.
Experiment 1006 is referenced multiple times throughout Poppy Playtime.
It made its first appearance at the end of Poppy Playtime Chapter 2.
At the end of the chapter, Mommy Long Legs was killed in a grinder.
While she was in the grinder, she said, “What have you done? He’ll make me part of him! You can’t do this to me!”.
A robot/prototype claw then reaches out, grabs, and drags Mommy Long Legs into the darkness.
A theory is that one of Experiment 1006’s goals is to gather as many toys as possible.
The toys will then become part of Experiment 1006—which makes it incredibly powerful.
What are Experiment 1006’s powers?
Experiment 1006’s powers are not known.
However, in the VHS tapes, Experiment 1006 is mentioned to be extremely dangerous.
The Prototype has two main goals—escaping and gathering as many toys as possible.
Its first goal is already completed as it already escaped confinement.
Presumably, Experiment 1006 is gathering toys to create a body for itself.
This is because it only has a mechanical arm.
Experiment 1006’s hobbies include terrorizing the scientists, destroying the factory, and gathering toys.
The Experiment 1006 VHS Tape
Here is the transcript of The Experiment 1006 VHS tape:
Scientist: “Final log. In relation: 1-0-0-6. The Prototype.”
Scientist: “Coordination and cooperation are evidently within his skill set, as well as the skillset of all other experiments of his type.”
Scientist: “Though still missing, today’s events are no doubt in relation to him.”
Scientist: “His absence was a flawed scientific process which should have under no circumstances been left unaccounted for.”
Scientist: “That’s why I’m making this log: So that the same mistake won’t be made twice.”
(Screams and pounding in the background)
Scientist: “Any future experiments will need to be contained and disposed of in a secure location.”
Scientist: “I’m not worried about myself. One breakthrough and I’ll be back. We must forge onwards in the name of science. Whether those who are beneath us understand it or not. End of-“
Here is the transcript of Log 08502:
Scientist: “Log Code 08502. In relation: Experiment 1-0-0-6. The Prototype.
A close call occurred this week, in which he nearly breached containment.
The Prototype seemingly disassembled the digital alarm clock within his room and utilized the battery along with several other components to create a laser pointer which he then fired into the security camera, disabling it.
These actions allowed him 28.3 seconds completely unmonitored.
Once the function returned to the camera, the room appeared to be empty.
One surveillance specialist went in to confirm his absence.
However, upon opening the door, she realized that the prototype had been hidden in one of the camera’s blind spots.
The prototype attempted to escape through the open door, however, another surveillance specialist was able to remotely re-lock the door, despite the other specialists still being inside.
One casualty occurred.
The prototype seems to possess an unprecedented level of intelligence, beyond that of all other test subjects as well as an alarming willingness to commit violence.
Further suppression treatments will need to be enacted to ensure that no other experiments develop these qualities.
Experiment 1170: Huggy Wuggy remains the optimal outcome due to his sufficient intelligence paired with maximum obedience.
End of log.”
