Sex & Nudity

  • Some flirting between Woody and Bo.
  • During the "Plush Rush" fantasy, Margaret is in the bathtub. No nudity is seen, it's censored with bubbles.

Violence & Gore

  • Bo uses her crook to attack other toys.
  • Ducky and Bunny comically attack an old woman during a dream-sequence. This is played for laughs.
  • In a rumble, Bo loses one arm, although later we know that happens to her frequently and it is duct taped back on easily
  • A stuffed toy is torn in half by a cat. We see the aftermath, but it is nothing too bad.


Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Margaret takes a bath and has a glass of wine on the side of the tub. It doesn't show her drink it.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Ventriloquist dummies are quite intimidating.
  • Some jump scares and action scenes. Nothing intense and is often meant for fun.
  • The ventriloquist dummy jump scares can be very frightening to young children.
  • It's dark and scary in some scenes.
  • Benson the puppet is very dominant and aggressive.
  • The ending is very emotional, going on par with the ending of the third film. Overall, this film is the second darkest entry in the "Toy Story" franchise, due to it dealing with mature themes including abandonment, rejection, despair, unusual anger, attempted suicide, loneliness, organ theft, organ transplant and existential crisis, as well as the aforementioned ending and the perilous situations.
  • Woody and Bo Peep's argument & Woody insulting Bo can make some sad. After Woody says "It's called loyalty. Something a LOST TOY wouldn't understand!", Bo is completely upset by his mean manner. This can upset some.
  • Bo accidentally breaks her arm. This reminisces when Woody's arm broke in Toy Story 2.
  • After failing to rescue Forky, Woody keeps insisting to rescue him again, but everyone is tired and hurt. For the first time in Toy Story history, Bo Peep becomes somewhat angry with Woody's plan. This is unusual for her character and may upset young children and Bo Peep fans. This reminded me of special Phineas and Ferb episodes when it comes to unusual anger from a friendly character, like in Summer Belongs To You, he yelled "GET ON THE TRIKE!" at Candace.
  • Suggested MPAA Rating: Rated PG for mild thematic elements and brief scary images


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • A cat swallows Giggle McDimples, but it throws it back up soon after.
  • Two plush toys grow huge, shooting lasers from their eyes and breathing fire, but this is revealed to be a 'dream'.


  • Woody says "oh chutes and ladders" when Forky gets into the trash can after they return from Bonnie's first day of kindergarten.
  • When the Camper RV stops working, Bonnie's father starts to shout, and Bonnie's mom says "Okay, daddy is going to use some words", though nothing explicit is said aloud. This is for comedic purposes.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Dragon the cat swallows Giggle McDimples, but it throws it back up soon after. Humorous but kind of gross.
  • Gabby Gabby wants Woody's voice-box and attempts to take it by force on numerous occasions.
  • Bunny and Ducky (played by famous comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, known as the comedy duo "Key & Peele") grow huge, shooting lasers from their eyes and breathing fire, but this is soon revealed to be a dream. This can be a little scary for some younger viewers. Played for laughs though.
  • Sad separation between Woody and Bo in the opening scene
  • Some viewers may find it quite sad when Woody gives up his voice box.
  • One of the characters, Forky, is suicidal, due to his constant attempts of trying to put himself in the trash to die, all of them failing. While this is played for laughs, the context maybe upsetting for some.
  • One of the toys, Duke Caboom is shown to have a dark and depressing backstory, since he got abandoned by his owner on the very same day he got him. Duke is shown very distraught here and briefly suffers from an emotional breakdown. This scene is emotional, and might sadden some viewers.
