Reminds me of the Big Baby character from Toy Story 3. What happened to its fingers?!?

Quick!  Grab a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and clean that baby!!!

I hope you find out what it is.  It really does look like the baby from Toy Story 3.  I know many of the toys in Toy Story are real ones could Big Baby actually be based off a real toy.  If so I think we found what this one is lol.

it got a big clean and looks nicer now but the wife still wants another one. we found one on ebay but lost the biding and the person selling it would not tell us the type or brand which was not nice.

If you still have a link to the auction and/or saved the photo it would be useful to post that here so we know what the doll looks like when it's not been so well-loved.

I just saw the movie last night (Soooo good)!

After looking through some trivia sites, all I could find out was that Big Baby was based off of a baby doll a Pixar staff member's daughter had when she was little.

The only feature I can see that distinguishes him from other soft-bodied vinyl baby dolls is the rubber heart tag around his neck with a raised edge. He also has a yellow bonnet and romper.



 I'm still not totally convinced there's a connection, but it could be a possible lead.
