Toy Story 3 - The Cynical Story

In Pixar's animation series Toy Story 3, Andy has grown up and is about to leave for college. He is facing the decision in how to dispose of his boyhood toys, either to take them with him, to put into storage or to throw them away. The toy do not foresee the prospect of being abandon by their owner. They are fearing for they future and hope to find a new home with children who want them and love them.

Pixar make this an exciting adventure story from the point of view of the toys. They are masterful in making a sentimental story out of toys. At then end Andy give the toys to little girl next door. He reminisce the old time with the toys once more before passing them on.

Buzz Light Year

In the movie, the solution is to pass on the old toys to people who want them. In real life, the problem is of a much bigger proportion. In the modern materialistic society, we have acquired so much stuff that it is causing much problem due to the clutter and the constant battle to keep the home organized. We face a similar issue on decision of the disposal of the toy after it has passed its days or simply because we run out of room. Giving them away doesn't solve the problem because there a lot more than people want to receive. Nor is throw them away easy because of our horder nature.

If you think Pixar made a movie to show us what we should do to toys as a responsible owner, look at what I've got and think again. In the first few years of my sons' life we have collected a whole parade of Toy Story characters, many of them are gifts from others. Pixar is a for profit company. One of the way for them to make money is to sell as many Toy Story merchandises as possible. So we end up with not one but three Buzz Light Year of various sizes. In real life, as oppose to in the movie, Pixar is very much a source of problem.
