Early ’90s babies who are having babies — listen up. When “Toy Story” was first released in 1995, you were just a kid, falling in love with talking toys and clutching your Buzz Lightyear or Woody doll with utmost protection.
In 1999, when “Toy Story 2” came out, you were bright-eyed, happy to see the toys of your childhood back on screen. And when “Toy Story 3” came out in 2010, right before you ventured off to college, you cried.
Now, nine years later, Woody and Buzz are gracing our screens yet again — transporting our mid-to-late 20s selves straight back to the young kids grasping their toys for dear life.
And now, if you have a kid of your own — or simply want to celebrate your own inner child — you have the ability to introduce them to a franchise so loved by those that know it.
But of course, it wasn’t just about “Toy Story” growing up. If you recall, the afternoons were spent playing Skip-It, scooting around your neighborhood on your Razor or watching your favorite Slinky make its way down the stairs.
And as our favorite ’90s movie makes a comeback (along with everything else from the ’90s), why not pick up one of your treasured childhood toys to make new memories with your little one?
