Comic-Con Museum@Home Fun Book #23: Toys

While the popularity of specific toys changes over time, the thought of toys in general stirs up memories and feelings from our childhoods. Nothing demonstrates this phenomenon quite like Toy Story, the first fully-animated feature film released by Pixar Animation Studios in 1995. The movie built its world on the pop culture toys and references of years past, and has since influenced pop culture in return with new toys, adventures, friends, and now, a Fun Book! Get nostalgic over the 25-year-old film with our Cross Purpose crossword and Character Lineup activity, create your own “Little Green Men” with our provided cutouts, and test your knowledge on classic and current toys and toymakers!
