Heralded as Disney•Pixar’s best movie since the original Toy Story, Inside Out is the story of the voices in your head. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in what’s known as the “Headquarters", the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
TOMY Toys is bringing the rich characters and colorful personalities of Inside Out to life in the real world with its line of magical toys including Riley’s five emotions: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust. The toys (available NOW) are character-driven, each showcasing the diverse personalities and distinct qualities of the characters in the animated film.
These toys are super soft and snuggly, and are very well made. The facial features are embroidered, which will definitely adds to the longevity of the toy and prevents choking hazards. Call me paranoid, but I don't like eyes that can just be plucked off of a toy. (Have you ever had a toy's eyeball get ripped off and end up in the mouth of a child? Not fun. Not fun at all.) These cute characters are also wearing very detailed, fabric clothing, which adds to their charm.
You see, each TOMY Inside Out Talking Plush toy comes to life! Just squeeze their hand, and the character will say a variety of different phrases from this hit movie. And yes, the voices are those of the actual talent! How cool is that?!
Sophie and Xander both love these magical toys from TOMY. They have been toting them around everywhere, and we have even used them to spark conversations about emotions. It's been very cute to see my kids express what emotion they are feeling at any given time. Identifying a feeling is a great start and will definitely help my kids choose how to express their emotions. Great job, TOMY!
We have not seen the movie yet, but we will be heading there while my husband is on vacation soon. I have a feeling that after the movie, we will be heading to the store to pick up the rest of TOMY's Inside Out Talking Plush collection!
