Both movies will have robust toy lines from licensee TOMY, whose approach, strength in international markets and ability to reflect Pixar's unique storytelling in its product lines made them the ideal choice for Pixar Animation Studios' year yet. TOMY's toy line for Inside Out is inspired by the humor, visual style and whimsical elements within the film. The poseable character figures have light up features and all of the toys allow for self-expression and re-creation of key movie moments. As for The Good Dinosaur, the broad toy range could appeal to kids of all ages, for both action figure play and more sophisticated remote control walking and talking. The unique characteristics of the film's dinosaurs, such as how they move and run are reflected in the toy line, and several working models have been built and shared with filmmakers to get the movements just right. Additionally, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) allows the characters to interact as they do in the film, bringing their unique personalities and stories to life.
