Yes, very interesting write. Even though the subject matter was trite, it still kept my attention. Kudos for you!
The trick about writing trite subjects and cliches is to write it in a new way. The fact that you made the word "plastic" repetitive made it sound more interesting and meaningful. Next, if I were you, I'd play around with the imagery and texture. Try to describe how the plastic sounds (call it a plastic sound?) or how it feels (maybe go off-subject a bit and say wax?) and how little movement actual plastic figures have, which allows you to show how constructed the plastic people are. These are just a few suggestions because you really have some potential in the way you write!
