The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
A little boy named Andy loves to be in his room, playing with his toys, especially his doll named "Woody". But, what do the toys do when Andy is not with them, they come to life. Woody believes that his life (as a toy) is good. However, he must worry about Andy's family moving, and what Woody does not know is about Andy's birthday party. Woody does not realize that Andy's mother gave him an action figure known as Buzz Lightyear, who does not believe that he is a toy, and quickly becomes Andy's new favorite toy. Woody, who is now consumed with jealousy, tries to get rid of Buzz. Then, both Woody and Buzz are now lost. They must find a way to get back to Andy before he moves without them, but they will have to pass through a ruthless toy killer, Sid Phillips.Written by
The top of Sid's backpack reads "Julie Macbarfle has cooties!", a reference to camera manager Julie M. McDonald, who lobbied people to put her name in the film. "Juju's house of food" is another reference to her. See more »
Throughout the film, an important plot point in the film is that Andy's family is moving within days. This fact is mentioned when Woody tells the toys that there is one week left before moving day and there are repeated mentions of the moving in progress throughout the film which takes place over at least a few days to a week. Yet, during the "Strange Things Are Happening To Me" sequence in which Woody sees Buzz becoming the dominant toy in Andy's room, Andy's mom has gone through the trouble of changing the wallpaper in Andy's room from cowboy-themed to spaceman-themed. Generally, there would be no point in such a dramatic decoration change if the family is planning to move out of the home within days of Andy getting Buzz for his birthday. See more »

Quiet, Bo Peep! Or your sheep get run over!

Several other sequences that included words were rewritten in different languages for international releases. Among these are the "don't count on it" from the 8 ball, posters in Andy and Sid's rooms, and the words on the television screen during the Buzz Lightyear Commercial See more »
Proof that Pixar not only cares about the quality of their work,they care about our kids.
Though I am not a big fan of computer animation,I have to give the folks at Pixar credit.This brand of animation is nothing short of brilliant.The attention to detail,such as eye and body movement is quite remarkable.Computers allow them to make their characters as close to human like as possible,something we have never seen in traditional hand drawn animation,though the latter will always be the closest to my heart.Combine this excellence with a genuinely good story idea and a top notch voice cast and the result is good family entertainment.It's obvious that the people at Pixar are not only caring perfectionists when it comes to film making,but they care about our kids,something rarely seen today.Highly recommended for any home library.
