** Well, let's look at the evidence. 1) They had just heard Andy say "No one's gonna want those old toys. They're junk!" 2) With the exception of Woody, all of them ended up in a trash bag. 3) They ended up on the curb just as the garbage truck was coming. Given those three pieces of evidence, it would be pretty easy for the toys to jump to the conclusion that Andy was throwing them out.

[[WMG: This just occurred to me. Wouldn't the fact that Daisy only replaced Lotso actually mean that '''''she loved him most'''''? It seems like a case of differing perspective between toys and humans. Neither can understand the motivations of the other. While yes, the idea of toys being abandoned like they were never very important has much more meaning to them than the humans, toys also don't seem to understand that, because humans don't know that they are sentient and don't know that they're alive, they don't tend to think of toys as individuals. Daisy loved Lotso more than Chuckles or Big Baby, which is ''why'' she replaced him. She was never abandoning Lotso himself, it's more that she loved Lotso and didn't want to have to "go on without him." Because she would have thought Lotso was LostForever, she got another one so that she could CONTINUE to play with a Lotso-Huggin' Bear that she loved. Replacement is obviously a very traumatic experience for a toy, but it's also something that they don't understand that, in the case of Lotso, it was mainly done out of love, unaware of the ramifications for Lotso himself.]]

** By that token, maybe it's the same type of thing as the wizard/{{Muggle}} relationship in the PotterVerse: toys had to pretend to be lifeless after a history of being persecuted and destroyed or whatnot. Regular people have been none the wiser for centuries now, and think that all the old stories about toys coming to life are nothing more than legends of old.

* I'm really confused as to why the toys all assumed that ''Andy'' had been the one to throw them out. He put them in the bag, yes, but then he set the bag down to help his sister and left it there for several seconds. When his mom almost trips over it, the toys should've heard her calling for Andy from right next to where the bag was, then realized that she had just picked the bag up herself. Unless they somehow thought that Andy used telepathy to see what his mom wanted without asking her, beamed himself into the room, and picked up the bag and brought it outside mere seconds after she called him, their blaming him for it makes little sense.

sense. (Please don't erase the latter part of this - I was just trying to be a little funny about it, not be excessively sarcastic or rude.)

* I don't know how many 17-18 year olds you know, fellow troper, but I don't know many of them who would be likely to keep a chest of children's toys in a bedroom that, according to the toys themselves, they haven't played with in years. Andy lives in a bigger house than he did has a child, his room seems to have been significantly upgraded to indicate his increase in age, and he had a younger sister growing up during that time for the toys to be given to, as well. It just seems very, very out of place to still see it there.

* The LGM are just [[EpicFailure that dumb]]. They can get stuck in a dumpster lid after it was shut and ''after they just walked across its lid''. No, I'm not being serious, of course, and the idea that Lotso grabbed one offscreen seems plausible enough provided the lid didn't slam or make an obvious noise while he was doing so (that way, nobody would notice). Or else there was a deleted scene which explained it?
