Philosophy of Toy Story Intro (Kailey McDonald H1G2)

Who would've thought a children's movie had so many philosophical implications? But I guess it's Pixar, so we shouldn't be too surprised. I'll be doing my final blog posts on the Toy Story trilogy. These movies follow the lives of a group of toys who belong to a boy named Andy. In the first movie, Andy is a young boy in elementary school, and when the third movie comes to a close, Andy is going off to college. The toys seem to be normal toys when humans are around. However, when they are not in sight of humans, the toys come to life. (As a kid watching the movie, I always wondered if my toys did the same thing. How cool would that be?!) The movies focus on what it's like growing up and the meaning and importance of friendship. Well, this is just a short intro to my final blog post series! Until next time, be sure to watch out for those snakes in your boots!


  1. Can't wait! I "grew up" on Toy Story too, Older Daughter must have watched the original film on video about 100 times. And I'll admit to shedding a little tear when Andy left for college, as she's about to do.

  2. This is so exciting! I can't wait to see what you pick in each post to talk about!

  3. You've done a great job so far! Keep it up if there are more to come!
