Toy Story 4 is not for Kids

It is for us born in the 90’s who grew up playing actual toys. Making up stories and scenarios out of them. Creatively developing their own personalities. Improvising dialogues with matching limitless sound effects and background music blurted by our innocent mouths.

It is for us who grew up hugging our toys until we fall asleep, thinking they will guard us from whatever scary creature there is beneath our beds. For us, who valued and cared for them more after watching Toy Story 1. For us, who knew the story of ANDY and all of his toys, all their memories and adventures.

It is for us who cried when Andy had to let go of his toys in Toy Story 3 coz’ he’s about to enter college. And we can relate because at that time we are about to enter college too and some are already at the university. We thought, “This is it. This is the last Toy Story film we will ever see”. It was heartbreaking. It was hard to part ways with our favorite buddies. 

Here we are nine years after the last Toy Story movie. Some are still pursuing their dreams. Some are lost. Others may have found their purpose in life and some may have started their own families and have children. But surely, we are still the same kids who witnessed how love and happiness can blossom out of “lifeless” things and admired the story of the Cowboy and the Astronaut. Toy Story 4 is in the cinemas right now and the little boy/girl inside of us is overjoyed. 

You crying?
