Everybody Wants the Space Toys

2 Jan

Long before the Christmas clearance sales, this Pez dispenser display at our local supermarket was sold out of Buzz Lightyear, and had plenty of the Woody version, perfectly echoing the anxieties of our cowboy hero as he feels his place threatened in Andy’s heart, and that moment in the 1950s when space toys pushed their wild west counterparts out of the way.

Sorry, Woody. I blame Sputnik.
