Andy, now 17 years old, is leaving for college. But for years, he has never played with his toys. He decides to take Woody with him to college and put all of his other toys in a trash bag to put in the attic. Of course, his mom throws the bag away with the toys inside, but they all (including Woody) escape and climb in a donation box shipping to Sunnyside Daycare. Here, they meet Lots-O'-Huggin' Bear (or Lotso for short), Ken, and Barbie. On the night they spend their time in the daycare center, Woody and the toys execute an escape plan. Believing that toys should really be thrown away, Lotso throws the gang into the dumpster, and they eventually go to an incinerator. Luckily, the Aliens rescue them with a claw. Now Woody and his friends use another garbage truck, driven by Sid Phillips, to get back to Andy's house. Back home, Andy takes the box of his last toys and drives over to Bonnie's house. He spends his last time playing with his old toys with Bonnie, who now gets to keep the toys forever.
