Bonnie Anderson is a supporting character in the Disney•Pixar Toy Story franchise, first introduced in Toy Story 3. She is a young girl who becomes the owner of Woody, Buzz, and the rest of Andy's toys after Andy heads off for college.
Bonnie is a 4-year-old brunette girl who goes to Sunnyside Daycare, where her mother, Blair, is the receptionist. Although Bonnie has an active imagination when playing with her toys (similar to Andy), she is quite shy and withdrawn around grown-ups.
Bonnie is first seen sitting on the front desk at Sunnyside Daycare, holding the Monkey in her hand and shyly saving hi to Mrs. Davis, who has come to donate some toys. Later, she finds Woody hanging by his pull-string from a tree, and she takes him home to meet her very own toys: Mr. Pricklepants, Trixie, Buttercup, Dolly, Peas-in-a-Pod, Totoro, and Chuckles the Clown. When Woody goes back to rescue his friends, he stowes away in Bonnie's backpack.
Bonnie is not seen again until the film's conclusion, when she is playing with her toys in front yard and Andy stops by her house to donate his toys to her, Woody having left a note with address on the box containing the toys. He takes his toys out one by one and introduces them to her, making her promise to take good care of them. Bonnie looks into the box and is surprised to be Woody. At first, Andy is reluctant to part with his lifelong friend, but after seeing that Bonnie loves Woody as much as he does, he explains how special Woody is and gives him to her. They play with the toys for a while before Andy finally leaves for college, and Bonnie goes into her house with her mother as the toys watch Andy leave.
In the end credits, it is revealed that Bonnie has made drawings for her toys, including the ones handed over from Andy. She also has drawn Chuckles' smile right, the sight of which makes Chuckles smile for the first time ever since.
In "Hawaiian Vacation", Bonnie briefly appears in which she says, "I'm going on vacation," as she bursts into her room, quickly grabs her suitcase from the closet, and rushes out of the room, leaving behind her book bag that, unknown to her, contains Ken and Barbie. Ken despaired as Bonnie and her family drove off to Hawaii.
In "Small Fry", Bonnie and her mother eat at Poultry Palace. Bonnie was upset that she got a Zurg Belt Buckle in her Fun Meal and requested it is exchanged for a Mini-Buzz. However, the cashier explained that they are out of Mini-Buzzes and the one on display is not for sale. Bonnie then went to play in the ball pit with Buzz and Rex, imagining she was sliding into hot lava. As her mother told her they were leaving, Bonnie was unaware that Mini-Buzz had switched places with her Buzz.
In "Partysaurus Rex", Bonnie takes Rex to play in the tub with her bath toys, pretending that Rex was a vicious sea monster. But the fun did not last when her mother turned off the water, drained the tub, and wrapped her in a towel to take her to dinner at her grandmother's.
While on the road with her mother, in the center of the trip, Bonnie, who was in the car, yawns and sleepily asks her mother if they are at their destination, but Bonnie's mother said they will not be at Grandma's for a few more hours, so she says to her daughter to go back to sleep. Suddenly, one of the car's tires blowout, forcing Bonnie and her mother to pull over into the Sleep Well motel. Upon learning the tow truck will not come until morning, they are forced to stay for the night. While they slept, Bonnie's toys leave her suitcase, only to be captured one-by-one by the manager Ron's pet iguana Mr. Jones. When her toys were found, she gives Jessie a hug.
The next morning, as they were checking out, Bonnie noticed the curtain behind Ron's desk being pulled back, seeing Bonnie's missing toys. Bonnie quickly collects them and she and her mother leave the motel after her mother reports Ron to the police.
Two days after Christmas, Bonnie plays out a variety of roles with her toys, but unhappily for Trixie, does not play with her as an real dinosaur instead of choosing to play with Angel Kitty as a Kittysaurus. Afterward, she collects Woody, Buzz, Rex, Trixie, and Angel Kitty for her playdate with her friend Mason. Upon arriving, she finds Mason playing his new Optimum X game console and he invites her to play, prompting Bonnie to toss her backpack with her toys into Mason's room.
Unknown to Bonnie, her toys encounter Mason's new Battlesaurs, who are unaware they are toys because Mason was fixated on the Optimum X and thus sought to kill Woody and Buzz. Trixie goes for the Optimum X's power switch to get Bonnie and Mason's attention off of it. With the game turned off, Mason goes for the power switch, only to find Reptillus Maximus instead. Upon spotting the Battlesaur, Bonnie begins to play with him, prompting Mason to join her and they spend the rest of the afternoon playing with their toys. Afterward, Bonnie collects her toys and returns home as her mother plans on bringing her back next Tuesday at around 3:00-3:30 PM.
Bonnie appears in Toy Story 4 as she is about to enter kindergarten. By this time, despite Bonnie's promise to Andy, she has begun actively neglecting Woody, to the point where she removes his badge and appoints Jessie as her "sheriff". Despite her neglect, Woody still does his best to ensure Bonnie is happy, even to the point of following her to kindergarten orientation to ensure she has a good time. With Woody's secret help, she creates Forky, a homemade toy made out of a spork and craft projects, who quickly becomes her favorite toy and instantly cheers her up. At bedtime, after Forky once again jumps into a wastebasket near Bonnie's bed, Woody climbs up to put him back on her pillow, only to make Bonnie grab him and pull him close to her sleeping face, which makes Woody feel a bit good inside.
Bonnie brings her entire toy collection along with her on her family vacation, during which Forky, who is suffering from an existential crisis, abandons her. She ultimately cries when she finds that Forky is gone, and makes constant frantic efforts throughout the film to find him. As her and her parents' efforts to find Forky fail, Bonnie becomes increasingly inconsolable, until they finally find him along with her backpack at the Second Chance Antique Shop. Later that evening, her toys help Bonnie's father return to the park through Trixie's secret GPS to return to the carnival to rescue Woody, though he decides not to return to Bonnie.
In a mid-credits scene, Bonnie has entered first grade and Jessie introduces a crafted knife figure named Knifey, with whom Forky falls in love.
- Bonnie lives at 1225 Sycamore Street, which is right around the corner from Andy's house.
- Bonnie taking Woody to her tea party seems to echo Hannah borrowing Buzz for a tea party in the first Toy Story, except for Bonnie's toys all had their heads, as opposed to Hannah's.
- When Andy stops at her house, she is seen playing with her toys but is interrupted when she catches sight of Andy. This mirrors one of the home videos Andy's mother has made at the beginning of the film when young Andy is interrupted by her entry while playing with his toys.
- Two other instances of this are Bonnie tossing herself onto her bed and hugging her toys and Woody in her arms, and at the end of the film, when Andy plays with his toys one last time during his visit at Bonnie's, Bonnie makes Woody and Buzz high-five each other. Both of these recalls two other of the home videos of young Andy at the beginning of the film.
- Bonnie is named after U.S. actress Bonnie Hunt (which she also voiced Sally Carrera in the Cars trilogy), who voices one of her toys, and Darla K. Anderson (last name), the producer of Toy Story 3.
