    Andrew "Andy" Davis 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/look_at_toys.jpg
Click here to see him as a child 
Voiced by: John Morris, Charlie Bright (as a child; in Toy Story 3)

Andy is the original owner of the main toy characters.


  • Ascended Extra: While having a vital importance to the plot in the first two films, he was Out of Focus for the most part. He's still Out of Focus for most of the third film, but he also takes center spotlight in some of the most crucial scenes of the film, as noted on Roger Ebert's website.
  • Big Brother Instinct: In Toy Story 3, Andy is a kind brother to his sister, Molly, despite their light bickering. When she has trouble lifting a box, he immediately goes to help her. And at the end, with Bonnie, who is a Shrinking Violet. He kneels down at eye-level to her, introduces all his toys to her, and plays with all his toys one last time with Bonnie before he left.
  • But Now I Must Go: He gets too old for his toys and heads off to college by Toy Story 3. But he leaves them in the care of Bonnie, whose imaginative playtime will be a blessing to them. Especially when he prepares to give up Woody, who obviously meant a lot to Andy.
  • Cheerful Child: In contrast to his Evil Counterpart Sid, Andy is a playful and happy boy in the first two films, especially when playing with his toys.
  • Children Are Innocent: The first two films showcase Andy as a playful little boy who uses his imagination to drown out the world's cruelty.
  • Cool Big Bro: For Molly and Bonnie. He acts very sweet and thoughtful to both of them.
  • He Is All Grown Up: As of Toy Story 3, Andy the Cheerful Child has become Andy the Pretty Boy.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • He has some knowledge of sewing, repairing Woody's arm at the end of Toy Story 2.
    • A poster on his bulletin board in Toy Story 3 reveals that he won an art contest for designing a safety poster in sixth grade.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: His eyes represent his youthful innocence and playful personality, particularly in the first two films.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Bonnie — he's a young adult about to enter his freshman year of college while she's pre-school age. They become fast friends.
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: Some of the toys under his care are mainly geared towards female demographics.
  • Membership Token: Favored toys like Buzz, Woody, and Jessie have "Andy" written on one of their feet.
  • Mr. Imagination: When playing with his toys, he lets his imagination run wild.
  • Nice Guy: A cheerful, creative boy who genuinely loves his toys and treats them like real people. Also his interactions with Bonnie in Toy Story 3 are pretty sweet.
  • Nice Hat: His cowboy hat in 1 and 2.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: He's rarely if ever called "Andrew".
  • Pretty Boy: Andy grew up to become a handsome young man.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: As a character, he doesn't have a very large role in any of the films. However, the main characters' entire lives and motivations revolve around him.
  • Two First Names: His last name, Davis, can also be used as a first name.

    Ms. Davis 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/11926_28255.jpg
Voiced by: Laurie Metcalf

She is Andy and Molly's single mom.


  • Good Parents: Clearly loves her kids.
  • Gut Punch: What seeing Andy's empty room on the day of his departure for college is for her.
  • Nice Girl: Ms. Davis is motherly, sweet, kind, and loving.
  • Progressively Prettier: While never outright ugly, 15 years worth of advancements in CGI did wonders for her.
  • Unnamed Parent: Even Woody refers to her as "Mom." Early character sheets apparently had her named "Jennifer", so that's what a large portion of the fandom calls her.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Ms. Davis is actually, without meaning to be, a major threat to the toys, as she frequently asks Andy to throw out the toys he no longer wants. Ms. Davis' actions regarding the toys sets the plot in motion in all three films. In the first film, she purchases a Buzz Lightyear toy for Andy on his birthday, prompting the rivalry between Buzz and Woody which leads to them being lost and forced to find their way home. In the second film, Ms. Davis tries to sell Wheezy at her yard sale, prompting Woody's rescue attempt where he is subsequently stolen by Al. In the third film, she orders Andy to clean out his room before going to college and puts the bag of toys Andy was putting in the attic out on the curb as trash by mistake, causing them to be donated to Sunnyside Daycare.

    Molly Davis 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/molly.png
Voiced by: Hannah Unkrich (Lee's daughter) in Toy Story 2, and Beatrice “Bea” Miller in Toy Story 3. Archive recordings from Toy Story 2 were used for her toddler scenes in Toy Story 3, and her voice provider for the first film is unknown. (Hannah wasn't born until shortly before Toy Story 2.)

Molly is Andy's little sister.


  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Played straight in Toy Story 3 when she constantly bugs Andy about wanting his room once he leaves for college, though it's still made obvious that the two love each other a lot.
  • Disappeared Dad: Her and Andy's father is noticeably absent, implying that Mrs. Davis is a widow or a divorcee.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: A baby (in Toy Story 1 and 2) with big blue eyes, a trait she has in common with her mother and brother.
  • Nice Girl: Overall, Molly grows up to be a decent and well-behaved young lady.
  • Satellite Character: Doesn't get a lot of characterization, except for being Andy's younger sister.
  • Two First Names: Her last name, Davis, can also be used as a first name.

    Sid Phillips 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/char_12865.jpg
Voiced by: Erik Von Detten

Sid is Andy's polar opposite, and next-door neighbor. As a boy who rips apart and reassemble his toys, if he doesn't decide to just blow them up, he's a primary source of in-universe Nightmare Fuel to Andy's toys.


  • Big Brother Bully: To his sister, Hannah. He enjoys taking away her dolls and mutilating them.
  • Cheerful Child: Buzz mistakes him for a "happy child" in the first movie. And he does seem pretty cheerful. Just not in a way you would remotely enjoy if you were one of his toys.
    Mr. Potato Head: That ain't no happy child!
  • Children Are Innocent: He has an obsessive propensity to dismantle and torture toys. On that basis alone it can be inferred that he'll grow up doing just that to his acquaintances. On the other hand, he didn't know that the toys were alive.
  • Classic Villain: Wrath, so much wrath wrapped up in a 12-year-old (?) package.
  • Creepy Child: He has a disturbing enjoyment of torturing toys.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: He cuts the head off of one of Hannah's dolls and replaces it with a toy pteranodon's head because she doesn't know if his package came in the mail yet when he asked.
    Sid: What do you mean you don't know?!
    Hannah: I. Don't. Know!
  • Enfant Terrible: He's around the same age as Andy, and is obnoxious and sadistic.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He does seem to love his dog, Scud.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Andy, even Word of God confirms this.
  • For the Evulz: "He tortures toys! JUST FOR FUN!"
  • Freak Out: Is reduced into a screaming, neurotic mess after Woody and his toys set him straight, making him the only human in the entire series to witness the toys' sentience. At least it didn't last long; see below.
  • The Heavy: He’s the main antagonist of the first film, though as much of the drama stems from Woody and Buzz’s own vices, he doesn’t qualify as the Big Bad, landing him here.
  • He Is All Grown Up: That garbage man in Part 3? Take a good look at the name tag.
  • Humans Are Cthulhu: This was admitted by Pixar, who essentially said from a human perspective Sid is merely a rowdy kid who bullies his sister, but from a living toy perspective, Sid is practically a devil.
  • Humiliation Conga: In the first film. He runs away from his younger sister's doll.
  • Intercontinuity Crossover: Appears in the comic book spinoff of Monsters, Inc., where he has managed to sneak into the Monster world and use the doors as a means to steal toys from kids to prevent what happened to him from happening to anyone else.
  • Jerkass: In addition to torturing toys, he also bullies his sister.
  • Laughably Evil: Such as when he mutters in his sleep "I wanna ride the pony.."
  • Leitmotif: Gets a weird marching theme.
  • Mad Artist: He takes toys apart and reassembles them with parts from other toys, making mutants.
  • Mad Doctor: Plays at being one attempting a "double bypass brain transplant" when using his sister's doll to create another mutant toy.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Considering his actions, he makes the toys he steals from his sister into freaks.
  • Not So Above It All: His hobby may be torturing toys, but nothing ever gets between him and his Pop Tarts, and he gets rather giddy when they're done. He also dreams about ponies.
  • Obliviously Evil: Since he has no way of knowing the toys are sentient and actually feel what he's doing to them for most of the first film, though the fact that he likes to pretend to torture his toys is probably not a good sign. Also, he takes away his little sister's toys and ruins them too.
  • Offscreen Villain Dark Matter: He is able to get his hands on materials that should be illegal for him to be in possession of, such as buying a powerful mini-rocket.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • He loves his dog Scud very much. He even spends his allowance on a toy for him.
    • In the Laugh Factory comics for Monsters, Inc., he steals toys, partly because he wants to make profit and also because he believes he's saving other kids.
  • Pubescent Braces: Sid has visible, gawky braces.
  • Punny Name: Take the "d" and second "p" out of his name.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He's violent, wears all black, tortures his toys and terrorizes his sister, but in his sleep, dreams about "riding the pony". A subversion, because he has plainly not yet learned to embrace that side of himself.
  • Red Right Hand: His rotten teeth.
  • Retired Monster: In a sense. By 3, he's a grown adult, a harmless garbage man.
  • Scare 'em Straight: Woody and the other toys get Sid to stop torturing them by coming to life all at once and marching towards him while Woody provides ominous commentary, sending Sid away in terror. Afterwards it's implied that he never harms another toy again.
  • Skeleton Motif: His T-shirt shows a prominent skull on the chest.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: He loves blowing up toys.
  • Talking in Your Sleep: "I wanna ride the pony".
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behaviour: Cutting up his and his sister's toys, putting them together in odd ways, and pretending to torture them in imaginary scenarios. Ultimately however, as Toy Story 3 shows, he grew up to be a still obnoxious but harmless garbage man.
  • Villainy-Free Villain: He mangles his sister's dolls but otherwise doesn't really do anything bad. How was he to know that his toys are alive and can feel pain? Though taking his sister's toys and mutilating them without her permission isn't particularly nice. Hannah doesn't want a tea party with headless ladies...
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Surprisingly, has become (a misguided version of) this in the Monsters, Inc. comic, where he's stumbled across the monsters' door technology and uses it to steal toys from other children's bedrooms, in order to save the kids from having the same experience as he did.

Sid's younger sister. A cute young girl who loves her dolls, although Sid normally ends up mutilating them in one way or another.



    Al McWhiggin 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/al_toy_story_2_disney_villains_1038318_369_263.jpg
Voiced by: Wayne Knight

Al is the owner of the "Al's Toy Barn" toy store.


  • Alas, Poor Villain: Despite being such a bastard, you can’t help but feel a little bad for him after he begins pathetically weeping on TV over losing the Round-Up Gang. And then, ten years later, when he bids thousands of dollars to get Woody and Jessie only to lose another shot at them.
  • Bald of Evil: Well, balding with a combover.
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: One of the two main antagonists of the second film, along with Stinky Pete. He steals Woody and plans to sell him and the other Roundup toys to a museum in Tokyo.
  • Child Hater: Despite working at a toy store, and his apartment doesn't allow children.
  • The Collector: "Kidnaps" Woody to sell him to a museum in Japan. Woody is actually a toy, though.
  • Continuity Nod: Over a decade after the events of Toy Story 2, he immediately buys Woody and Jessie on eBid when they were captured by Ron Tompkins in Toy Story of Terror. This man is the living definition of obsessed.
  • Determinator: He has clearly spent years tracking down every piece of merch from Woody’s Round-Up he can possibly find, as evidenced by his vast collection in his penthouse. His visit to the Davis’s yard sale also implies he spends much of his time patrolling such sales to find his prizes. The fact that he was able to amass the complete collection of a TV show half a century old is quite impressive. Even ten years after Toy Story 2, he’s quick to buy Woody and Jessie online, meaning he likely now scours the Internet nonstop.
  • The Dreaded: For Andy's Toys, as they quickly turned off the TV when his commercial is on.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: A variation; Al's Toy Barn is briefly mentioned in the commercial watched by Buzz in the first movie.
  • Fat Bastard: He has a portly Geek Physique, and even though he has no way of knowing his theft of Woody was kidnapping from the toys' perspective, it was still a knowing theft, and overall he's an ill-tempered, sleazy, unpleasant man who's verbally abusive to everyone.
  • Fat Slob: He's shown to be a lazy couch dweller in his home at night during the scene where Woody sneaks into his apartment room, evidenced by him burping in his sleep and eating a bowl of Cheetos.
  • Freudian Excuse: According to a Disney Adventures magazine, he became a toy collector because he was never allowed to play with his toys as a child.
  • Geek Physiques: The "fat" variety: he is a chubby man who has the nerdy profession of collecting children's toys.
  • Harmless Villain: The only villain in the movie who poses no threat whatsoever to the toys (especially Woody, whose well-being is in his best interests).
  • Hidden Depths: After Stinky Pete wakes him up, Al mutters "no officer, I swear." This could imply that deep down, he feels guilty about stealing Woody, or at the very least fears that he won't be in the clear forever despite his cocky attitude.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Yes. Even looks like Wayne Knight with a different hairstyle.
  • Jerkass: As shown in Fat Bastard, where he steals Woody from Andy out of his own selfishness.
  • Large Ham: Especially in his giant chicken persona.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He steals Woody as he is the last valuable piece of the highly sought-after Woody's Roundup collection, which he intends to sell to a Japanese toy museum; With the toys' escape at the airport, Al is forced to return to the States empty-handed.
  • Laughably Evil: He's so silly and buffoonish that it's hard not to find him funny.
  • Lazy Bum: He complains about having to drive from his apartment to Al's Toy Barn and back again even though it's just across the street.
  • Manchild: He's still obsessed with toys into his adulthood.
  • Obliviously Evil: Like Sid, he's more evil from the toys' perspective than from humans'. Stealing Woody is a misdemeanor as far as he and other humans are concerned (though depending on just how much Woody is worth, it could be Grand Larceny; which is a felony), but to toys, it's straight-up kidnapping.
  • Serious Business: Collecting valuable toys and Woody's Roundup merchandise. When he sees that Woody's arm has fallen off, he panics and calls a professional toy repairman to come fix him.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Stinky Pete awakes him to prevent Woody's escape.
  • Villainy-Free Villain: Apart from stealing Woody, he never really does anything else villainous and it's hard to call him "evil". Though he's still not a nice man.
  • Villainous Glutton: He falls asleep with a bowl full of Cheetos (which falls on the floor)
  • Villain Song: "The Collector" from the Toy Story 2 Sing-Along cassette must be heard to be believed.

    Geri 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5028801_std.jpg
Voiced by: Jonathan Harris

A toy cleaner/repairman that Al hires to fix Woody.


  • Canon Immigrant: He originally appeared in the short Geri's Game. This is even referenced in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment: one of the drawers of his toolbox is full of chess pieces.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He has absolutely everything he need in his Repairman Kit, even matching paint colour for Woody's boots. He even has a tiny little chair for toys to sit in!
  • Mr. Fixit: He's shown to be very good at his job, which is good for both Woody's and Al's purposes. Woody seems quite refreshed after Geri finishes up.
  • Suddenly Voiced: He hasn't said a word (except "uh-uh" and "ah-ha") in the short, mostly laughed.

    Emily 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wdtutkt.png

Emily was Jessie's previous owner who was only seen in one flashback. Her outgrowing the doll and throwing it away left a deep emotional scar on Jessie.


  • Distaff Counterpart: She's essentially a female Andy. This comes full circle in Toy Story 3.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Her hair is untied and shorter as she grows into young adult.
  • The Faceless: Her face is almost never clearly seen.
  • Growing Up Sucks: Not for her, but for Jessie. Emily's growing up resulted in Jessie developing some crippling abandonment issues (and indirectly claustrophobia as well).
  • Nice Hat: She has a cowgirl's hat as a child.
  • Only One Name: We never learn her last name.
  • Used to Be a Tomboy: As she grew up, her interests shifted from cowgirls and horses to makeup, boys and dancing.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Jessie was her favorite toy as a little girl, and they did everything together. But as Emily grew up and moved out of her cowgirl phase, she forgot about Jessie and eventually donated her to charity.

    Bonnie Anderson 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bonnie_ts3.png
Voiced by: Emily Hahn (Toy Story 3, Toy Story Toons, Toy Story of Terror!, Toy Story That Time Forgot), Madeline McGraw (Toy Story 4)

Bonnie is a young girl whose mother works at the Sunnyside Daycare in the third movie. She has a very small role at first, but turns out to be a Chekhov's Gunman.


  • Cheerful Child: Just as Andy was when he was a kid.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: She's seen quite earlier in the film, before her eventual role is finally played in the climax.
  • The Cutie: Whether she's being shy (around adults) or a cheerful Genki Girl (with her toys), she's always adorable.
  • Gamer Chick: In Toy Story That Time Forgot, she's shown playing a video game in her friend's house.
  • Generation Xerox: She's the Distaff Counterpart version of Andy when he was younger. Andy gives the whole gang of his old toys to her as he's leaving for college, so that they will be able to make another kid happy, and he knows that she'll take good care of them, though this was partially orchestrated by Woody.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Just look at the way she treats her toys. We love her for this reason.
  • Hair Decorations: She wears a pink butterfly barrette.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Andy — he's a young adult about enter his freshman year of college while she's pre-school age. They become fast friends.
  • Junior Counterpart: Like Andy, she has a vivid imagination and takes good care of her toys.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • "Bonnie" means adorable.
    • "Anderson" means "son of Andrew". She inherits Andy's toys, and his role in the series.
  • Ms. Imagination: With her toys, another trait she has in common with Andy.
  • Nice Girl: Bonnie is caring, kind, imaginative, playful, and sweet.
  • Passing the Torch: She becomes the new owner of the eponymous toys at the end of the third film with Andy's blessing.
  • Shrinking Violet: Is shy around other people. When playing with her toys, however, she's a borderline Genki Girl.
  • Token Good Teammate: Unlike her classmates, who unintentionally play with toys recklessly, Bonnie is the only person to treat them well and gentle.

    Mrs. Anderson 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/anderson1.jpg
Voiced by: Lori Alan

Bonnie's mother, and the receptionist of Sunnyside Daycare Center.


  • Friend to All Children: Heavily implied, given her job.
  • Good Parents: A loving and caring mother to Bonnie.
  • Mama Bear: After finding out that Ron had stolen Bonnie's toys to re-sell, she tells him off and then calls the police.
  • Nice Girl: She is motherly, sweet, kind, and loving.
  • Unnamed Parent: Only goes by "Mrs. Anderson" or "Bonnie's Mom".

    Daisy 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/daisy.jpg
The little girl who previously owned Chuckles, Lotso, and Big Baby.
  • The Faceless: In the flashback, her face is never fully seen and we only see her from behind.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She has blonde pigtails.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: According to Chuckles, she loved all her toys deeply, but especially teddy bear Lotso.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: An innocent and sweet little girl with blonde hair and a childlike and unconditional love for her toys. Big Baby still sees her as his "Mama".
  • Only One Name: We never learn her last name.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: We don't know much about her and only appears in one flashback, but her unintentional impact on Lotso's life and personality is the source of the story's conflict in the third movie.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Lotso became a heartless and cynical tyrant after being abandoned (unintentionally) and then replaced by Daisy. That said, humans don't know toys are sentient and individual, and the fact that Daisy bought another Lotso doll proves how much she actually loved him. Lotso’s Start of Darkness and all his terrible actions were still his own choice.
