Mattel Launches New "Toy Story" Stop Motion Video -- Inspired by Kids for Kids

To create the out-of-this world adventure short, Mattel invited aspiring space explorers to the Imagination Center to compose the video’s storyline. With Mattel designer Chris Downs and Disney character artist George McClements guiding them, the kids took their imaginations to infinity and beyond (literally) resulting in a story about Woody, Buzz and Rex battling the evil Dr. Zurg on an imaginary planet comprised of vegetables.
