The Autons are plastic objects, mainly mannequins that are controlled by the Nestene Consciousness. In the Rose episode, the Nestene take control of waste bins to produce a copy of Rose Tyler's boyfriend. The Nestene used to be Octopus in character but they got rid of their tentacles to become an energy source. They were able to take control of plastic objects to do their work for them.
