My Grown-Up Toys
I love Toy Story movies and toys.
I have a collection of Toy Story characters.
I like the idea that toys come alive when their humans aren't around.
I love sweet, down-to-earth, reliable Woody.
I love to pull his string and hear him say, "there's a snake in my boot!"
I think Tom Hanks was the perfect choice to play Woody. He seems to embody the same characteristics.
I like Buzz Lightyear's belief that his reality is really real.
Tim Allen was the right choice to play Buzz's blustery part.
I like, no love, sweet Rex, the tyrannosaurus played with perfect angst and trembling by Wallace Shawn.
I like Hamm the Piggy Bank (John Ratzenberger) and Mr Potato Head (Don Rickles).
I love it when Mrs Potato Head (Estelle Harris) packs extra shoes and angry eyes for Mr Potato Head.
I like it when Woody goes limp over Bo Peep (Annie Potts) attentions.
I like it when the Sarge and the Bucket O'Soldiers go on reconnaissance missions.
I like it that Andy puts his name on all of his toys.
Let's face it....I love everything about Toy Story and plan to go see the new movie soon!
