If its too freezing for you outside; head to the movies to see Disney Pixar ‘Inside Out’ and explore the emotions of the human mind. 
 To go along with the movie, the Inside Out Toy Line from TOMY hit stores on May 8th. Products include collectable movie character figures, basic plush toys and engaging interactive headsets.
Disney Pixar’s inventive new film Inside Out will take you to a place that everyone knows, but no one has ever been to: the world inside the human mind. Viewers will be led inside 11 year-old Riley’s head, through a journey of emotions felt by us all – those of fear, sadness, joy, disgust and anger. The emotions live in “Headquarters” (the control center inside Riley’s mind) where they lead Riley through everyday life.
The exciting Inside Out toy line brings to life the rich movie characters of the film and their colourful personalities, including Riley’s five emotions; Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust. The character-driven toys showcase the unique personalities and distinct qualities of the ‘Inside Out’ characters, enabling children to recreate the imaginative settings, re-enact their favourite scenes and collect each emotion.
The Inside Out Toy Line from TOMY is available at Target, Toys ‘R’ Us, Big W, Myer and Toyworld. Visit: http://movies.disney.com/inside-out/
