To Infinity...AND BEYOND!

Clearly I am ecstatic about this and a kid at heart. But come on, who doesn't love Toy Story?

I was the wee little age of 8 when the first one came out and I was in love. Especially those cute little aliens in the claw. And I thought Sid was the absolute worst. It was the introduction of Woody and Buzz. How they started off as enemies but soon became best of friends. Truly a great moral for an 8 year old. Mom took me to see that movie and it was definitely a love

Then 4 years later it was back. Toy Story 2. Andy is off to summer camp and the toys are left behind for their own crazy adventure. Woody learns who he was and Buzz meets his newer model. A close escape lands them back home in Andy's room with new recruits, Jessie and Bullseye. I did not see this in the theater because at age 12 I wasn't sure if the childish movie was appropriate for a very grown up 12 year old. But I definitely saw it with my younger cousin when he watched it on VHS (!)

Now here we are 11 years later and the Toy Story craze has taken over. Target, along with many other stores, are carrying every kind of Toy Story 3 themed merchandise. Including a $150 Buzz Lightyear. Yes, you read that right. $150. And no it doesn't fly as I had assumed for it to cost that much.

Technology has definitely changed from the last movie and it seems as Andy goes to college the toys are finding a new home. It is shown in the preview the dinosaur is talking about an instant message she received from a male dinosaur down the street. Then of course is the fact that it is in 3D when in 99 it was barely even thought about. 

Hopefully I will be with everyone else Friday night, in my 3D glasses watching Buzz Lightyear and Woody! I'll leave you with a nice preview.
