Last month, I went to San Francisco for 24 hours to visit Pixar Studios. Coming from Florida, it was a whirlwind trip. But it was worth it to see Pixar for the first time and learn all about Toy Story 4. You guys, it’s going to be everything we hoped for and more! My surprise new favorite character is Forky, and I found 15 Forky toys and accessories every Toy Story fan is going to want.
I knew I was going to love the reinvented Bo in Toy Story 4 (more about her soon), but the character who surprised me was Forky. I wasn’t sure how they were going to make a spork loveable, but Pixar worked its magic (like always), and from the short glimpses of the movie I was allowed to see Forky is awesome. He already has some great toys and accessories available, and I am sure there will be many more to come. Which one will you buy first?
15 Forky Toys For The Toy Story Fan
Forky Funko Pop – This was my #1 must, and I am happy to report I already own him thanks to my husband. Now, I feel like I need the whole Toy Story 4 set. HERE.
Forky Funko Pop Key Chain – Yes, I have the full-size one. Yes, I want this one too! I might settle for buying one for each of my big girls for their backpacks. HERE.

DIY Forky Craft
Besides taking my picture with the Luxo Ball, my favorite thing at Pixar was making my very own Forky. It was really cute to see all of the adults working so hard perfecting their Forkys. There’s something about a craft project that brings out the kid in everyone.
From traditional Forkys who look just like the movie character to your very own creation, Forky can be anything you want him (or her) to be. There was a healthy mix of both among the Forkys made during the media event. The possibilities are endless. I plan to stock up on sporks and let my kids go wild creating new characters this summer once school gets out.

Inside Pixar Studios
Is Pixar Studios really as amazing as I imagined? Nope. It is MORE amazing. I know, that sounds crazy, but it’s true. From the beautiful building to life-size Pixar characters all around you, Pixar Studios is incredible.
I spent much of my visit daydreaming about what it must be like to work at Pixar. It’s still a job, of course. And I am sure there are frustrating days, like every other job, but wow — what an environment to work in. I felt very lucky to visit and get a glimpse of what life inside the studio must be like.
I hope you are as excited as I am to meet Forky this June. I think he is an excellent addition to the Toy Story gang and I can’t wait to see how his story turns out!
Meet Forky June 21, 2019.
