Sex & Nudity

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.


  • Just a couple toy/plush/game-related stand-ins involving the lines "oh, Chutes & Ladders" and "stuff *that*" respectively.

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. The film deals 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 seriously angry with Woody's plan. This is unusual for her character and may upset young children and Bo Peep fans.
  • Many dark and scary scenes eith the ventriloquist dummies. Many jumpscares.

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'.

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.
