I Love Forky
I don’t know about you, but I am so excited about Forky! He is my kind of character and I think he is for kids too.
I knew when I first heard about this trashy character from Toy Story 4, we were going to be friends.
I love Forky.
If you haven’t seen Toy Story 4 you should. It tickled me to see a character made from recycled materials! The materials rescued from the trash can have become a mascot for what makes a toy a toy for a child.
Besides the physical materials that are involved in any kind of toy making, what makes Forky the toy he becomes is by intention. Bonnie, the little girl who now has Woody along with the rest of the TS gang creates Forky as part of a first day of school assignment. Though throughout the movie Bonnie isn’t asked what makes her Fork a toy, we know it’s due the spirit of her imagination and creativity that does it. After all that’s all that is really necessary when it comes to toys for a child, does it inspire their imagination.
Forky is a beacon. through this beloved movie Disney helps spread the word that a little creativity goes a long way even when you have limited resources.
I’ve always known that, it’s just so fun to see it on the big screen.
