Would you believe that my sister and I hadn’t seen any of the Toy Stories until this August? I know—I couldn’t believe what I’d been missing out, either. And I can recommend this completely, because we both enjoyed it tremendously.
Woody is hilarious—but also a serious toy. All his devotion goes to his friends, but more importantly to his owner, Andy. I love the ‘ANDY’ on his boot, a mark of who his identity is. He’s brave and dependable, and willing to risk limb for a fellow toy in need or in trouble.
Buzz is a super cool toy–and a great friend. He’s anything but annoying when he still believes he is the ‘Buzz Lightyear’ though—his spanish mode is more entertaining though, than annoying. He is brave and a natural leader. He, too, is also willing to risk his own safety for friends in need of help.
The rest of the gang are classic. I liked Jessie, but didn’t love her immensely or anything. She came off loud and rather hyper. But she was a good friend, too. Bullseye was my favorite from number two–he was so expressive with his eyes.
Mr Potato Head was a favorite of mine because I had one of those when I was really young. So kinda felt a little connection with him. His sarcasm was great. And Mrs Potato Head was perfect for him. Her voice was awesome.
And Ken and Barbie completely stole the show in number three as far as I’m concern. I’d always imagined the Barbie Doll as some kinda feministic, loud, sassy creature that was rather a flirt–and Ken was supposedly a freak accessory in her line of merchandise. In the film they weren’t anything like that, so it was funny seeing them portrayed differently. Barbie was actually cute and Ken was super hilarious. Among some of my new favorites, they are.
