Andy's House is the name of the the Davis family residences seen in the Disney/PixarToy Story franchise. The first house appears in Toy Story up to the ending once the family moves, and the second house serves as the location onward.
By now Andy’s room has become an emblem of the Toy Story movies and of Pixar itself. The idyllic blue sky and white cloud wallpaper of Toy Story gives way to a galaxy of stars in Toy Story 2. For Toy Story 3, the artifacts on the walls, and even the more subdued sunlight streaming into the room, conveyed the realm of a teenager and the new problem facing the toys: Andy’s imminent departure for college.
Places of interest
The Living Room is where Andy Davis had his birthday party and also played with Woody. This is in the first house before the big move.
“And this is Andy's room.”
Andy's Room is where all of Andy's toys are kept and where their stories and adventures begin in the films Toy Story, Toy Story 2, and Toy Story 3. Andy's Room is often used by Woody to hold a staff meeting for toys.
In Toy Story, Andy shares a room with his baby sister Molly. A little later, a Buzz Lightyear action figure joins the toys in the room, and Buzz, unaware that he is a toy, thinks his "spaceship" has "crash-landed on a strange planet." It is later seen that Andy's room is located across the yard from Sid's room. At the end of the film, the toys settle in Andy's new room after the family moves to another house.
In Toy Story 2, at Andy's new house, Andy has his own independent room. After Woody is kidnapped, the room is transformed into a Crime Scene Investigation by the rest of Andy's toys, with Hamm and Etch A Sketch operating Exhibits A (in which Etch displays Woody, and Hamm states that Woody has been kidnapped) and B (in which Etch does, or rather attempts to do, a "roughest sketch of the kidnapper") and Mr. Potato Head running Exhibit F (in which he details the escape route of the kidnapper's vehicle) while Buzz attempts to decipher the message behind the vehicle's license plate to trace the vehicle and the kidnapper, who turns out to be Al McWhiggin of Al's Toy Barn. At the end of the film, Jessie, Bullseye, and the Aliens move to their new place in Andy's room.
In Toy Story 3, set several years since the events of the second film, the same room is shown to be littered with more posters, photos, and drawings on the walls, but by the time the toys finally return to the room, the room has been cleared. Mrs. Potato Head has also left one of her eyes in Andy's room, which helps her see what Andy is doing while preparing to depart for college. At the end of the film, the toys move out of the room and then settle at their new home at Bonnie's house.
“It's not in Molly's room. We've looked everywhere.”
Molly's Room is where Mrs. Potato Head, Barbie, Bo Peep, her sheep, and the rest of Molly's toys are kept in Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3. In Toy Story, Molly at first did not have her own room, having to share a room with Andy. It was after the Davis' moved to a new home when she got her own room. This was not revealed in Toy Story, but in Toy Story 2 by Bo Peep while all the toys were searching for Woody's hat. Her room is never seen until Toy Story 3, when Molly is rummaging through her old toys.
The highest level of the house, and a subject of dread among toys who fall into disuse. In Toy Story 3, the Attic is the place where a seventeen-year-old Andy intends to put his toys, except Woody, in before leaving for college. When Woody and Buzz hold a staff meeting days before Andy's departure, they mention the attic as a place where they can all be together, being there for Andy. The games, the books, the race-car track, and the old TV are all mentioned to be stored in the attic. However, at the end of the film, the toys end up not being stored in the attic, but at Bonnie's house, where Woody has thought it will be better for his friends.

In the first level of the Toy Story 2 video game (which takes place at and is called "Andy's House"), the setup of Andy's bedroom closely resembles that of his old house from the first film, albeit with the star wallpaper from the second movie.
Before Buzz gets knocked out of the window, he runs away from a rolling globe, a reference to the film Raiders of the Lost Ark when Indiana Jones is running away from a giant, rolling boulder that chases him out of a temple in South America. During that scene, music from Raiders of the Lost Ark can also be heard. Also, a Wilhelm scream (a scream that is heard very often throughout the Indiana Jones movies) is heard after the lamp knocks Buzz out of the window.
The cloud wallpaper of Andy's first room also appears in Monsters, Inc. when Randall is practicing his camouflaging.
The TV on Andy's desk in Toy Story 2 has a game console on top that heavily represents a Super Nintendo. The second Toy Story begins with Rex playing a game on it. The most notable difference between the movie console and the real world one is that the buttons on the controller are different in the movie.
Andy's House is also one of the locations of the "Toy Box" world in Kingdom Hearts III. The Heartless invade both inside Andy's room and outside the house. Sora, Donald, and Goofy arrive to discover that Woody, Buzz, Rex, Hamm, Sarge and three other Green Army Men, and the three Little Green Men are the only toys to be seen. Andy and his family seem to have gone missing, too.
On one of the walls in Andy's room is a banner that reads "P.U.", which stands for Pixar University, a professional-development program for Pixar employees.
One of the final shots of Toy Story 3 is a sky, which has a similar cloud pattern as the wallpaper in Andy's room in Toy Story.
