** Most likely there's a warning of some kind on the box Buzz came in. Also, lawsuits? I've seen the kinds of laser pointers that kids' toys come equipped with - shining one in someone's eye can be irritating, but it's not capable of causing long-term damage so easily unless someone were intentionally trying to inflict it, which I can't see most normal people doing. If someone were to shine a bright light in your eye, all you'd need to do is say "Ow, that's really bright" for them to realize their mistake and point the laser elsewhere.

[[WMG: Buzz's laser]]
* Every single laser pointer I've ever seen has a warning sticker about not looking directly into the light. And laser pointers are marketed to adults who should (in theory) know better. Giving one to a small child and trusting them not to point it in someone's face is a recipe for disaster and lawsuits. Making the button trigger a sound effect and making the child imagine the laser would be more practical, safer, and less litigious.

** OP here: I understand that, and normally, I'd be perfectly fine with it...but it's the fact that the movie had already established Buzz's incapability to actually fly that kind of irks me, since it was part of what made him realize he wasn't really a space ranger...Then they completely turn it over just for the sake of convenience at the climax. The other examples you listed were at least established earlier on, and their respective films didn't have anything that specifically contradicted them.

** No, I'm pretty sure Woody only tricked Buzz using the rocket atop the Pizza Planet truck as a means of getting him to follow him inside it, and that Buzz got distracted by the rocket-shaped claw game once they were ''inside'' the restaurant, but they both went in together, by sneaking themselves in using a couple of carry-out containers. Woody could just as easily have told Buzz that Andy's mom's van was their transport to another "spaceport".

** IIRC, the main reason they go inside is because Buzz sees the spaceship on the top of the restaurant and assumes that it's a spaceport, so Woody has to follow him in order to get him back.

[[WMG: Why do they go inside?]]
* Why would Woody and Buzz want to risk being seen by going inside Pizza Planet to find Andy? Why not just go find his mom's car in the parking lot? Even if they couldn't get inside the car on their own, they could easily just wait nearby for Andy to leave the restaurant and make like they'd just fallen out onto the ground, which would be a lot less conspicuous than his two toys suddenly showing up inside his baby sister's stroller.

** To be precise, the person who kept pushing for the film to be edgy was Jeffery Katzenberg; the good guys at Pixar didn't listen to him, so he left for DreamWorks. (Good riddance, I say).

** There ''are'' some versions of the toy with separate eyes in real life. Not as commonly found, but I have seen them.

* Maybe toys can...willingly surrender their sentience and life, if they so desire? And Combat Carl was tired of being (and seeing other toys being) tortured and mutilated by Sid?

** This is one of the weirdest parts of the film because it completely contradicts the fact that Buzz truly is a toy incapable of flight, and was only added in because there was no other way for the duo to get back to Andy (and it also made a charming finale to the film). Similar to the nonsensical "Remy can make Linguini move by pulling his hair" thing and a few thousand balloons being able to lift an entire house, it's not explainable - it's just movie magic.
