Toy Story 3

Ok, lemme just say that this blog is gonna be a bit biased since toy story had a big impact on my child hood.flashback!
The Year: 1995
The Place: Minnesota
My siblings and I had just seen Toy Story(for the life of me I can't remember if it was in the theaters or rented). And I had a new perspective on toys. I had always taken care of my toys. Always. I had to keep them safe from the terrors of my older brother.
But after seeing Toy Story, my hopes sky rocketed. Toys, alive??? Only in my wildest dreams as a 7 year old girl. From then on, I took extra care of my toys. I even had all the McDonalds plush dolls of Woody, Buzz, Rex, and Ham. So I played Toy Story with my toys, with Woody as the leader. He was and still is my favorite. So that's how I grew up with my toys, treating them as equals. I still have allot of my toys packed neatly away in my parents basement because I know they deserve better than being thrown out or sold. Crazy, you say? Pack rat you say? Well that may be.
Anyway back to the review. Toy Story 3 is all about closure. And we sure needed it. Everyone wanted to know what would happen to the key toys once Andy grew up. After Toy Story 2, which was good, you wanted more. Needed more. And TS3 delivers. Its great for all ages, as the first two were. Basically if you liked the other 2 you will like this one no doubt. Not a fan of toy story(are you even human?)then don't go. My husband was worried the theater was going to be packed with kids, but I reminded him that we were kids when we saw the first one, and that the audience consisted of a few children, but mostly people our age, that grew up with it. Not saying that little ones now a days don't watch Toy Story, its just that there is so much other media to distract them. The story line is great, the dialogue up to pixar standards(Monsters Inc, Up, Finding Nemo). The animation has truly upgraded from the first movie, so they look a little different, just a little streamlined. Lemme just say my favorite parts of the movie, parts where I was laughing out loud, was basically anypart with Ken. You have to see the movie to understand why. Anyways, this will be a must own pixar for me unlike other huge disapointments(The Incredibles and Rattoullie).

All in all go see this movie, and if you get emotional at all bring tissues, I was crying for like the last 10 minutes of this movie.


  1. When I watched "Indian in the Cupboard" for the first time, I put a little toy in a cabinet and hoped he would be 'alive' when I opened it... haha. I was young. :P I want to see TS3!! :]

  2. Loved Toy Story 3 as much as all the others. I will never throw another toy away but donate always. loved the pre-school scenes, classic. They should have thrown in a G.I. Joe with ken, no wait that doesn't sound right - I mean maybe Joe could have made a cameo. Anyway I could watch many more...........
