Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3....Coming to Theaters June 18th
and Toys already in Stores!

Back a month or so ago I was searching online for any new toys that may be coming out this summer.  Much to my surprise, Toy Story 3 has a garbage truck and landfill in the movie.  They have come out with many toys to go with the story.  We were anxious to find out what the story was about so we found two Toy Story 3 books.  One is entitled Toy Story 3 a Little Golden Book and the other is Set into Reading Level 2 - The Great Toy Escape.  Both books not only have the landfill and garbage truck, they have an incinerator.  David is familiar with an incinerator and what it does, but for some reason it is scary to him...perhaps the fire.  Or maybe perhaps the toys falling into the fire.  We have been reading to David for a very long time (since infancy) and we tried to explain to him that movies and books have a conflict and a resolution.  There always has be some sort of drama and then in the end, in most children's book, everyone lives happily ever after.  (I wish real life was like this!)  I guess it is a hard concept to understand when you are 5. 

Prior to knowing the whole story of the 3rd movie, I had bought some early Christmas gifts to put away.  I didn't want to wait until the last minute and not be able to find what I was looking for (Garbage Trucks of course! ). One of the gifts I picked up was the LEGO Toy Story Trash Compactor Escape .  Well David decided he was too afraid of this toy. So I trekked back to Toys R Us to return it. 

Low and behold, David, being so creative and imaginative, came up with his own Landfill, trash compactor and incinerator with toys that he already has.  We have this wonderful Lego Duplo Knight's Castle that we earned with Pampers Gifts to Grow Points back many years ago when David was a baby.  He combined the legos with k'nex, his garbage trucks, playmobile and Matchbox Rigs to create this masterpiece!

It reaches beyond the thing that is, into the conception of what can be.
Imagination gives you the picture.
Vision gives you the impulse to make the picture your own.
