Who is Toy Story’s Bonnie?

Toy Story’s Bonnie whose full name is Bonnie Anderson, is a major character in the Disney-Pixar Toy Story movie. Bonnie was first introduced in Toy Story 3, she is the young girl who becomes the owner of Woody, Buzz, and the rest of Andy’s toys when Andy was heading off to college.

How old isToy Story’s Bonnie?

In the Toy Story movie, Bonnie is a four-year-old brunette girl. She attends Sunnyside Daycare, where she is the receptionist’s daughter. Bonnie, just like Andy, has a vivid imagination when playing with her toys, but she is shy, quiet, and distant from grownups.

When the audience first met Bonnie, she was seen seated at the Sunnyside Daycare front desk, holding her toy Monkey. The little girl was curious about what Mrs. Davis (her mother’s friend and Andy’s mother) is donating. When her mother closes the box flap, however, she slumps and pouts in sadness.

Later, she discovers Woody hanging from a tree on his pull-string, and she brings him home to meet her other toys, Mr. Pricklepants, Trixie, Buttercup, Dolly, Peas-in-a-Pod, Totoro, and Chuckles the Clown. When Woody returns to save his companions, he conceals himself in Bonnie’s backpack.

Toy Story’s Bonnie did not appear again until the end of the movie when Andy goes by to donate his old toys – Jessie, Bullseye, Rex, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, Slinky Dog, Hamm, the Aliens, and Buzz Lightyear – to Bonnie, Woody having left a letter on the box holding the others.

“I’m going away now. I need someone really special to play with them,” Andy told Bonnie as he gives out his toy collection. “You’ve gotta promise to take good care of these guys. They mean a lot to me.”

When Bonnie sees Woody, who had crept into the box after Andy had packed it, she turns to grab him, but Andy snatches Woody away. Woody wasn’t supposed to be in there, and it seems as if he’s considering telling Bonnie that. 

Bonnie with a heartbroken expression, Andy takes a long moment, sighs, and then changes his mind. “Now, Woody, he’s been my pal for as long as I can remember,” Andy tells Bonnie. “He’s brave like a cowboy should be and kind and smart. But the thing that makes Woody special is that he’ll never give up on you, ever. He’ll be there for you, no matter what.”- Andy tells Bonnie about his favorite toy, Woody.

Andy relents and gives Woody to Bonnie after witnessing how much she loves Woody as much as he does, and they play with their toys before Andy leaves for college.

Bonnie also appeared in the closing credits of the Toy Story movie. It was revealed that Bonnie is actually an artist. She has been drawings for her toys, including the ones Andy gave to her before going to College. Bonnie drew Chuckles’ smile right and with that sight, it makes Chuckles smile for the first time ever since.

Bonnie made her first appearance in Toy Story 4 as she prepares to start kindergarten. Despite Bonnie’s vow to Andy that she will take good care of his toys especially woody, she has begun aggressively disregarding Woody, to the extent of removing his badge and appointing Jessie as her “sheriff.” Despite her carelessness, Woody makes every effort to keep Bonnie happy.

Bonnie is busy playing with her toys on the day of her kindergarten orientation when her father comes and instructs her to get ready for school. Bonnie is worried about leaving and asks if she can bring a toy, but her father says no. Bonnie leaves the room, but returns and begins sobbing, which Woody notices. Woody sneaks into Bonnie’s backpack to ensure she has a good time because he can’t stand seeing his new owner upset.

As said earlier, Bonnie is a shy kid. She was really shy around everyone when she first gets to kindergarten. She makes Forky, a handcrafted toy made out of a spork and craft project, with Woody’s covert assistance, who swiftly becomes her favorite toy and instantly cheers her up.

Here Are Some Things Bonnie from Toy Story has in Common with Andy

1. Andy and Bonnie from the Toy Story movie share a lot more than just a love of toys. In fact, countless scenes of the Disney movie (most notably in Toy Story 3) demonstrate how similar the two are. When college-ready Andy arrives at Bonnie’s house to drop off his toys, she is still playing with her toys but comes to a halt when she notices Andy. This might remind most audiences of a scene of Andy, where he also stops playing with his toys when he saw his mother.

Apart from that, there was also another scene where Bonnie rushes into her bed, clutching her toys, there was another scene in which a young Andy does the same thing.

2. And, perhaps one of the most touching scenes of the movie, at the end of Toy Story 3, Bonnie makes Woody and Buzz high-five each other, mimicking what we watched at the start of the Toy Story Movie in which Andy did the same thing.
