Not my favorite Pixar short, but I still found it enjoyable. I liked how the tin toy faced his initial fear of the baby and chose to try to make it laugh instead of cry.... only to realize the baby was more interested in the box.

Yeah, not one of my favorites but it still made me laugh. I think if it were made more towards the present day it would've been better.

It's alright. It's not one of my favs either. I spent most of my time watching it comparing the animation of the baby to what they can do now. Just to see how far they've come.

I think it's genious! It won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short, y'know. ;) The story was really clever and if they revamped it today, that would be awesome too!

I just love watching how weird the crawling baby looks. I don't know where I remmeber hearing this comment from, but I'm sure a Pixar employee said something about the baby's nappy looking as though it was made out of concrete. :lol:

A good short, though. I love the toys in it especially, and the way Pixar manage to convey emotions even when the animation was pretty basic.

Oh tin toy, I love that little guy(= I remember the first time I watched Tin Toy was in class, and we discussed how difficult it was to animate humans and how creepy the baby was haha(= It is interesting to see how far Pixar have come in past 20 years! :D

Did anyone notice that Bass from One Man Band resembles Tinny, but in a human form.

Is that considered a sad ending?

Killler123: It depends on how you look at. I find it more ironic than sad personally.

I remember watching this short on a video I had around the release of Toy Story. It also had "Red's Dream" and "Knick Knack," I believe.

Anyway, I like "Tin Toy." It's cute and simple.
