Everyone’s favorite cowboy-space ranger duo is at it again. On June 21, 2019, Woody, Buzz, and the gang will return to the big screen in Pixar’s fourth installment of Toy Story. Though rumor has it Toy Story 4 will be the last of the franchise to hit theaters (Tom Hanks shared his last moments reading as Woody on Instagram back in January), Toy Story is a one-of-a-kind classic that will live on, especially through the countless Toy Story toys cluttering your child’s bedroom floor as we speak.
Why not add a brand new Toy Story toy to your own child’s toy box? Check out our top picks and let the adventures continue!
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 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.
Minuscule action figures are a mom’s worst nightmare — so, naturally, kids love them. The Kicko’s 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 Woody action figure, your child can find a friend in their own authentic Woody doll, too. But brace yourself, mom: this toy recites an ear-splitting 30 different phrases with the pull of a string. Temptation to cut the cord will be all too real.
Vans are to sneakers, as 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.
When Buzz Lightyear’s spaceship crash lands at the head of your child’s bed, it won’t be a mistake. Reviewer’s 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,” splurging on The Original 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, original Slinky’s are a one-of-a-kind model born and bred since the 1950s. Pixar’s got nothing on this vintage pup.
If your child gets a kick out of rummaging through mommy’s purse, here’s one way to give your bag a break. Trust me, they’ll tire of breath mint containers and loose tampons the second they lay eyes on Playskool’s Mrs. Potato Head Silly Suitcase. The carry-along tater case is chock full of 35 vibrant fashion accessories and body parts for your little one to mix and match per their imagination. It’s also travel-friendly, so their favorite spud can tag along virtually anywhere you roam.
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).
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.
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.
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, 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.
