Dolls & Bears
Barbie and Ken Made for Each Other Gift Set
These two made a memorable appearance on Toy Story 3. Ken stole the show with his fabulous house and all his clothes. Barbie is his perfect mate!
What I really love about this set is that these are based on real Barbie dolls from the 1980s. Barbie is based on the Great Shape Barbie Doll from 1983 and Ken is from the Animal Loving Barbie Collection from 1988. It will be like going down memory lane when you see these two - they are just irresistible!
You'll love their outfits as seen in the movie and your child can reenact the scenes they're in together! Ken and Barbie have gotten a 4½ star rating from customers just like you who are pleased with these Toy Story toys. This set is available here.
Lotso Huggin' Bear
When you're soft, pink and furry and smell like strawberries, nobody's going to think you're a bad guy. But looks can be deceiving and that's no exception with a Lotso Huggin' Interactive Bear the leader of the toys at Sunnyside Daycare where much of Toy Story 3 takes place.
You're really going to love Lotso because he is made exactly as he is described by Pixar, and I think he looks absolutely fantastic. And this one's made by Thinkway Toys, the toy company that has been designing and manufacturing Toy Story toys since the very beginning. They know what they're doing!
So far the reviews for this toy have been phenomenal at a 4½-star rating. The description on Amazon says that the arms are poseable arms and legs with Velcro hands, but one reviewer says that's not true. The eyes also do not close, but that's alright because the original description of Lotso Huggin' Bear doesn't include that feature. One reviewer did not like the voice, but many may believe that is part of the charm of this Toy Story toy - this bear is not as he seems! While this Lotso is expensive, he's a collector's item, interactive and true to the film. This Lotso can be bought here.
Like Lotso but not that price tag? Here's a more basic 15-inch plush Lotso for over $40 cheaper. This bear has some good reviews, too, with customers saying that he really smells like strawberries and is very cuddly and cute. The only complaint is that this particular Lotso is not packaged in a box.
This 8-inch plush Lotso is over $56 cheaper than the Interactive collector's edition. Now you can have a Lotso Huggin' Bear for your collection of Toy Story toys for a budget that's right for you.
