The way it goes

Toy Code : Working source code which is extensively peer-reviewed, obsessively tested, well-documented, and released once. Often used in articles, examples, mailing lists, and blog posts/comments.

Production Code: Working source code which is rarely reviewed, infrequently tested, poorly documented, and regularly released. Responsible for the majority of the world's electronic infrastructure.
