TOY STORY 1 and 2 kind of came out when I still had a semblance of my childhood. I think I recognized most of the characters. But TOY STORY 3… different story. Chunk? Peas-in-a-Pod? Are these real toys that children play with? I guess I’m just out of touch with the kids these days.
The new and third film in the franchise still has those old stand-by toys that cross generations, like Mr. Potatohead and Woody the cowboy doll. But if Pixar really wanted to reach out to the Millennials, we brats of the 90’s, here are some toys we were into that would be great characters:
The sensai of the toy world. A favorite of children everywhere. He is everywhere and nowhere. Exists, and yet doesn’t. Voiced by Sam Elliott.
POG MASTER FLASH
Here is one toy that’s gonna see what it’s like to be on top… then have his world come tumbling down. Top Dawg is about to get slammered. Voiced by Pauly Shore.
As a talking pack of candy cigarettes, Ciggie isn’t what she seems. The other toys are wary of her too-cool-for-school attitude… until they realize she’s just a poser and dump her ass. Voiced by Nicole Polizzi (aka Snooki).
Box was orphaned out on the curb until some kid drags him into the house and introduces him to the other toys. But toys be warned — Box is a shapeshifter and can pretty much replace any toy at any time. Voiced by Meryl Streep.
