Thanks For The Memories

Took the kids to watch Toy Story 3. The kids really enjoyed it and so did I, even though we didn't watch the 3D version. I loved Toy Story 1 and 2, and this sequel brought back lots of wonderful memories, but I wonder why Bo-Peep is no longer around with the gang...she was so dainty and sweet.

My favourite character is Mr. Potato Head...don't know why but I just like the fact that he can rearrange his face and limbs at his whim and fancy! I also like the aliens with 3 eyes. When the kids were younger I always told them that I had eyes at the back of my head and I could see whatever they were they had better behave themselves! And they really did believe me for a while because they couldn't figure out how I could see that they were jumping up and down on the sofa in the living room when I was in the kitchen...until they grew up and found out about my secret....strategically placed display cabinets with reflective glass doors as well as a mirror near the main entrance!

The scene where Andy gave his toys away to the little girl Bonnie made me tear a little because I am reminded that in a few years' time my son will be going off to college too...and he has this cupboard full of toys that he has outgrown. I asked him once, quite a while back, whether he wanted to give his toys away but he replied, "I'm keeping it for my son", which means that those toys will be with us for a very long time. Hmm, maybe I can sell some off in eBay when they become collector's items many years down the the Power Rangers action figures or his prized Lego Bionicles sets...!

So it's farewell to Woody and his friends...unless Pixar comes up with new adventures for them. It's really quite amazing how these guys at Pixar can come up with a phrase  "To infinity and beyond!!!" that would stick in people's minds for 15 years...(yup, Toy Story 1 came out in 1995)!

We kept our toys for a looonnng time until we moved and my mum had them donated. I'm still keeping my TS2 toy set. I got them for Christmas when TS2 came out. They're practically collector's item now. :D

I hope there's a TS4, with Bonnie this time!

P/s: My fav characters are Rex and Hamm. xD Too funny.

I read somewhere that TS was meant to be a trilogy (like Star Wars) maybe there might be another set of 3 movies with Bonnie :D
