Toy Fair 2015- TOMY: Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur, Miles from Tomorrowland
This past weekend at Toy Fair, I was able to meet with TOMY to take a look at their latest offerings for the newest Disney properties in their wheelhouse: Disney/ Pixar’s two newest upcoming films Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur, and the new Disney Junior cartoon Miles from Tomorrowland. Unfortunately, I was not able to take photos from inside the show floor. However, TOMY was kind enough to give me some images that I can share with you, along with some product information to fill out the lines where no pictures were provided.
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
