I’ve been wanting to get this off my chest since I first watched Toy Story 3 and now that Tink loves the trilogy, I just can’t take it any more.

Lotso is obviously set up as the main evil character in the movie.  He has turned heartless thanks to losing the love of his life, Daisy.  Yes, he snapped and went over the edge but Daisy wasn’t to blame.  It was her parents.  Seriously, I know it’s a cartoon where toys go on grand adventures so I should just let this go, but any good parent knows you have to keep up with a child’s favorite toys.  Leave behind the lovees?  Only if we are running for our lives.  And Daisy’s parents would have had to do quite a snow job to convince her to accept a new Lotso in place of the one she had loved so much.

There.  I’ve said it.  And now I feel much better.  Thanks for listening to my rant.

  1. We’ve lost a few special toys, and they could never be replaced. Of course in the case of Jack (her old stuffed monkey) we like to think of it like the Velveteen Rabbit, he became real. Since we were in Disney World when we lost him we can now look for him in the Animal Kingdom (his new home).
    Now though she has Bear, and sometimes a few others, making sure we have all of them is always a very important part of walking through a store, or leaving a restaurant. Sometimes the decision has to be made to leave those important friends somewhere safe, in a bag, at home, in the car.
    Anyway I definitely agree that Daisy’s parents should have done a better job of keeping track of her friends.

  2. Oh my gosh I totally agree! I couldn’t believe that the parents would leave the most loved animal behind. I would imagine that if it had been us, even if it had been discovered an hour later, we would have had to return to get “donna” (my sons lovie, and he’s 9. He would FREAK!!!)
