Have you ever wanted to see what toys do after they have grown up?Have you ever wanted to see what toys do after they have grown up?

This is a blog documenting new adventures of old childhood toys.  It could be a commentary on how our own lives have changed as adults, plain good fun or both.  You can also submit your own posts if you have a quick story to tell.  Enjoy!

Early review screenings of Toy Story 3 coming back quite positive already.Early review screenings of Toy Story 3 coming back quite positive already.

The folks over at CNET were lucky enough to get an advance screening of the movie and their consensus is that this installment will be a very big winner. Not that it wasn't a hard prediction to make even without seeing a screener but this is a neat read nonetheless for my fellow Pixar fans out there.

No Star Wars collection is truly complete unless you have a carbonite-frozen Han Solo Lego figurine. Side note: this year celebrates the 30th anniversary of when the Empire Strikes Back was released.

Glad to see more of the plot and some new characters. Overall, this is starting to look like it will be a worthy succesor to the previous two movies. So yes, I'll be at the theaters on June 18th with the entire family this day. Hold my calls.

This year's hottest toy is robotic hamsters according to CNNMoney.This year's hottest toy is robotic hamsters according to CNNMoney.

Move aside Tickle Me Elmo - this year robotic hamsters are all the rage.  The price might be a factor in this as well as these little robots will only set you back about eight or ten bucks. They also leave less of a mess than a real-life hamster, which is nice.

Another trailer for Toy Story 3 surfaces online.Another trailer for Toy Story 3 surfaces online.

This new trailer seems to be a mix of some new footage along with a bevy of clips from the older movies interspersed in there as well. The end result makes it kinda look like a fan-made trailer you'd see on YouTube.

The art style looks fantastic as usual. I'm really impressed as to how they managed to attain a better sense of realism while sticking to the original Toy Story atmosphere. See you in line for tickets next summer.

The only problem is – during their initial escape attempt – the Space Ranger gets severely damaged. To the point that Woody & friends are forced to hit Lightyear’s reset button. Which then puts Buzz into Spanish-speaking mode.
