Looking for the best Toy Story toys for your little Pixar fan (or even for yourself)? We’ve got you covered
The Best Dolls & Stuffed Animals
This bear might’ve played the villain in Toy Story 3, but in real life, Pixar’s salty bear is super sweet. Toy Story 3 Huggin’ Bear comes scented like strawberries, and the aroma is rumored to linger for months. It’s also a solid 15” long and stuffed with fluff, so when you’re all out of snuggles for the night, this teddy is more than ready to step in.
Woody’s pretty little sidekick now comes in plush, but don’t let this doll’s soft stuffing fool your little cowgirl. Jessie’s character is rooted in solid spunk, and if she teaches your little girl anything, it’ll be that the sky’s the limit. Though, note that reviewers say Disney’s Toy Story Jessie bean bag plush doll is the perfect size for toddlers, so you might want to consider that detail before clicking add-to-cart.
What’s a round of movie-themed play without Woody’s trusty horse? This plush Bullseye can be enjoyed by TS fans as young as 3. He’s ideal for snuggling, or giving action figures “rides” on his back. With details like a toothy smile and the letters A-N-D-Y embroidered on his hooves, buyers are very pleased with this purchase, dishing out glowing 5-star reviews. “Love, love, love this Bullseye!” one customer says. “Great smile! Love the teeth! Cuddle-approved by our granddaughters. Wonderful floppy legs. Our granddaughter even put her smaller Woody mounted on his back, feet in the stirrups.”
The Best Costumes & Clothing
The next time you’re making dinner or just need an hour to yourself, and you really want to tell your child to “buzz off,” now you can. The Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Armor and Jetpack set is sure to send your little space ranger to “infinity and beyond.” But don’t worry, Mom, the button-activated visor will protect them from toxic air on any uncharted planets they might discover along the way. There’s also an option to add Buzz’s wrist communicator and laser blaster. More imaginative play for them? More mommy time for you.
You can tell yourself buying clothes instead of more toys isn’t a clever way of avoiding extra cleanup, but I know your true motives — and they’re genius. Disney’s Toy Story Hooded Costume Shirts makes playing pretend that much more enticing because your little one won’t be maneuvering their favorite characters, they’ll embody them.
Vans are to sneakersas Toy Story is to Pixar: classic. This decorative pair of kicks represents some key secondary characters that don’t get enough attention outside the cartoon, like Bo Peep, Slink, and Rex, while the backdrop color scheme mimics Andy’s signature wallpaper scattered with clouds. On the one hand, these Vans Toy Story slip-ons would make for an epic collector’s item. On the other, would you buy yourself a pair of shoes you weren’t allowed to wear, mom? Probably not.
The Best Action Figures
For the kid who hoards action figures like you do shoes, this toy will be a one-of-a-kind addition to their collection. However, while some reviewers rave this Pop! doll captures a “classic movie moment,” others have expressed disappointment that RC’s wheels are immobile (but that might be a selling point for you, Mama).
Minuscule action figures are a mom’s worst nightmare — so, naturally, kids love them. The Kicko army toy soldiers set comes with a whopping 144 pieces, but don’t let that deter you from the purchase. These toys aren’t taking rogue orders from other toys (as far as we know), so when Sargent Mommy launches mission clean-up, just make sure your little soldier reads you loud and clear.
Every child has that one toy they just cannot go without. For some, it’s a stuffed animal that reeks of drool no matter how many times you wash it, while others carry a baby doll whose head is so hard, you swear it could be used as a weapon. For Pixar’s Andy, his sidekick was the “rootinest, tootinest, shootinest, hootinest cowboy around,” and with Disney’s Toy Story 4 Woody action figure, your child can find a friend in their own authentic Woody doll, too. But brace yourself, Mom: this toy recites over 10 different phrases with the pull of a string. Temptation to cut the cord will be all too real.
When Buzz Lightyear’s spaceship crash lands at the head of your child’s bed, it won’t be a mistake. Reviewers call Disney’s Buzz Lightyear action figure “movie accurate.” From the same smart-ass grin 90s kids know and love, to the same karate chop action the space ranger uses in defense of Sid’s seemingly villainous toys, the action figure even comes equipped with a working laser so your child can ward off danger in the name of Star Command for hours.
Quoted “as loyal as any dog you could want,” picking up this Slinky brand Slinky Dog is the perfect compromise when your baby starts begging for a pooch of their own. Not only is this Toy Story toy an excellent interpretation of an authentic dachshund, the original Slinky has been in existence since the 1950s. Pixar’s got nothing on this vintage pup.
Bo Peep gets a makeover in this Toy Story 4 version of the sassy shepherdess. Along with her rad new cape, Bo is chattier, too. This figure says over 15 phrases so she can converse with the whole TS crew. With several movable joints, she’s easy to pose for any kind of adventure that your kids can dream up, and they can get figures of friends like Forky, Rex, and Jessie, too!
With over 3,500 reviews, the vast majority positive, buyers say they’re impressed with the durability and details of these True Talker toys. Unsurprisingly, their young Toy Story fans simply can’t get enough!
