Toy Story Toys: 10 Toys You Didn't Know You Loved
The movie "Toy Story" opened our hearts and minds to a new world of toys. We learned that even inanimate objects have feelings and thoughts, and can be good or bad. The characters from “Toy Story” helped us realize that even the simplest of toys, like a yo-yo, can be a great source of happiness. So when we were presented with the opportunity to learn more about our favorite characters, we eagerly accepted. And that’s how our love for these toys grew even stronger. That being said, their existence doesn’t end just because the movie does. We know that people are as obsessed with these characters as we are, and you may be surprised to learn some of the facts we have in store for you. It is our pleasure to provide you with a list of intriguing toy story facts about your favorite characters from the movie.
First up is Buzz Lightyear, who was voiced by Tim Allen. Buzz is an astronaut action figure who comes alive when his owner, Andy, is playing with him. He doesn’t realize that he’s a toy, and he thinks that he’s actually an astronaut who works for Star Command. His catchphrase is “To infinity and beyond!” Buzz is an interesting character because he’s a boy who lives as a real person. He’s also an astronaut. Buzz is an excellent example of what it means to be an astronaut — curious, active, and determined to explore the world around you. He can be your child’s first introduction to what it means to be an astronaut, and it’s a fantastic example. An imaginative play is inspired by this great toy, as well as teaching your child about one of the most exciting and high-profile professions. He’s also a great way to help your child learn about science, technology, engineering, and math.
Big Baby was voiced by Michael Keaton, and he’s a baby doll in the movie. He’s not a normal baby doll, though. He’s a bit of a loner and he prefers to keep to himself most of the time. He doesn’t like to be around other toys too much because he’s a bit of a social outcast. He’s got a very rough exterior, but deep down he’s got a soft side too. He’s got a very interesting personality, and there’s a lot more to him than meets the eye. It's not that he looks like a baby; he's just a grown man with a very unique personality. It’s clear that he’s not a normal baby doll.
Bo Peep, who was voiced by Annie Potts, was once a real sheepherder. She is a fictional character who helps the main protagonist of the story in his quest to save his children. She is a mature woman who has lived a hard life, but she is also kind and caring. She’s one of the few people who believe in the protagonist and helps him in his mission. Bo Peep lost her sheep and sheepdogs, and she became a toy. She’s kind of an odd toy, but she’s definitely a popular one. She’s not a real sheep, but she looks like one. That’s certainly interesting, especially because she’s also a toy shepherdess.
Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head
Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are a married couple who were voiced by Don Rickles and Estelle Harris. Mr. Potato Head is a grouchy old man who always has a cigar in his mouth. He has a self-closing door in his body. Mrs. Potato Head is a sweet old lady who always has a broom in her hand. She has a self-opening door in her body. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head have a son who is a potato with a self-closing door in his body. There are a lot of things that are interesting about these toys. They’re made out of potatoes, so they’re a bit unusual. They’re plastic, so they’re stronger than other toys.
Rex, who was voiced by Wallace Shawn, was a Tyrannosaurus rex toy that was made in 1934. He was the oldest toy in the film, but he met his end when he was ripped in half by one of Sid’s toys, a puppet named Mr. Potato Head. He was a little clumsy, and always did things a little differently than the other toys. He often had a puzzled look on his face, as if he were thinking about something that no one else could understand. Rex was very sensitive and cared a lot about the other toys and his friends. He was always there to comfort them if they were feeling sad. Rex loved to help out around the toy shop and was very good at fixing things. His owner loved him, though, and he was happy to have a dinosaur toy as his best friend.
Hamm and Egg Schmitter
Hamm, who was voiced by the late John Ratzenberger, and Egg Schmitter were two toys that were made in 1941. They were the first toys in the film to be given names, and they were made in Pennsylvania. They were two piggy bank toys that were clearly very similar to each other. Hamm and Egg were made in the same place at the same time. They came out of the assembly line with the same thoughts and ideas programmed into their electronic brains. They were both programmed to be thrifty, eager to save money, and interested in making a profit. They both had the same goals. They both wanted to be successful. They both wanted to be happy. They were very similar to each other, but they were no doubt best friends.
You may have assumed they were just a bunch of plastic action figures with no real-life person behind them. However, you might be surprised to find out that some of them have very interesting backstories and facts about them that you probably never knew before. If you love these facts as much as we do, then make sure to let your friends know about them too.
