Nine years earlier, following the events of Toy Story 2, Bo Peep and Woody attempt to rescue RC, Andy’s remote controlled car, from a rainstorm. Just as they finish the rescue, Woody watches as Bo is donated to a new owner, and considers going with her, but ultimately decides to remain with Andy. Years later, a teenage Andy donates them to Bonnie, a younger child, before he goes off to college. While the toys are grateful to have a new child, Woody struggles with accepting that Bonnie does not love him like Andy did, evidenced by Bonnie taking Woody’s sheriff badge and putting it on Jessie instead. In the closet, he encounters other old toys who share their experiences from what it was like being played with by Bonnie.
