The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
The story takes place after a Christmas holiday with the regular toys finding themselves trapped in unusual territory with a group of new and delusional action figures. Together they must find their way back to their child's bedroom and to safety.Written by
In the opening seconds of this special, just after the main title, and just before Woody appears in a Santa Claus outfit, you can see the snowman and snow globe from the Pixar short Knick Knack (1989), sitting on the floor of Bonnie's room. See more »
In the beginning Bonnie pushes Buzz and Jessie down a mountain on a sled, and 6 seconds later we see Jessie is covered in Styrofoam peanuts across the room. Jessie couldn't have gotten over there without Bonnie seeing her. See more »
So, how was the playdate?
Oh, nothing much. Just a crash landing on another planet.
Reptilian people, hand to hand combat...
And I was a lumbering mindless automaton!
Mr. Potato Head:
Well, that part adds up.

During the credits, that night in Mason's room, Reptillus happily bears Mason's name on his hand and looks forward to seeing Trixie at Mason and Bonnie's next playdate, already scheduled for the following week. See more »
It's just after Christmas. Bonnie has a play date with Mason. She brings along Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Trixie the triceratops, Rex, and Angel Kitty. Mason got a new video game and he has't play with his other new toy, the Battlesaurs. Bonnie's toys meet Reptillus Maximus who is taken with Trixie. The Cleric has set up a gladiatorial world where the other toys are smashed by the Battlesaurs. Trixie explains the joys of play to Reptillus Maximus.
The central message is to play more with imagination and toys, less with the video games. Trixie is the lead in this half hour special. She's alright to lead a special and the message is passable. There are a couple of fun scenes especially when Woody and Buzz are in it. Angel Kitty speaks with a child's voice which caught me off guard. She could be funnier. The show looks good, has some good moments but isn't anything particularly special. It's a reasonable showcase for Trixie.
