Forky is kind of bored by himself at kindergarten with Bonnie, until the day her teacher suggests that all of the kids make their own buddies. As the kids go out to recess, the new friends start waking up, but they are having a hard time transitioning to being toys. Can Forky help them make the leap?
So freaking adorable! I am pumped to see the latest Toy Story movie and this is a great starter for any crafting class at so many ages. Of course, I can’t help you if the kids are sad when their creations don’t come to life!
