Toy Story 3
- Woody: "She loved you, Lotso."
- Lotso: "She never loved me!"
- Woody: "As much as any kid ever loved a toy"
- ―Woody and Lotso arguing more[src]
When Woody stayed at Bonnie's house, Bonnie's toys directed Woody to Chuckles when Woody mentioned Sunnyside. Chuckles told Woody about how he, along with Lotso and Big Baby, was once loved by Daisy, living at her house. In a flashback, she unwrapped a Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear doll for Christmas and had a lot of fun playing with him, Big Baby, and Chuckles. Lotso was her favorite of the three, sharing a special bond with him. During a picnic, Daisy had lunch and then fell asleep. She took them on a drive with her parents, however when they stopped at a rest stop Daisy fell asleep, and her parents took her back to the car and drove way accidentally forgetting the three toys. Lotso, Big Baby and Chuckles waited day and night for her to return, before beginning the long journey back to Daisy's house. Lotso's determination to reunite with Daisy helped them make it all the way, but unfortunately Daisy's parents bought another Lotso doll in order to compensate for the original Lotso that she had accidentally lost during the picnic. Lotso was infuriated at seeing he had been replaced, his love and care for Daisy being replaced with anger and bitterness, so he stormed off with Big Baby and Chuckles, and took over Sunnyside Daycare to ruin the whole idea of the concept. Daisy was never seen again from this point on.
When Lotso and his gang corner Woody and the rest of Andy's toys at the dumpster, Woody confronts him about Daisy. Lotso instantly gets upset, and says that Daisy had thrown him out, replaced him and never loved him at all. Woody denies this, and reveals the truth: Daisy had lost her three best toys and only replaced Lotso, But Lotso, in an act of jealousy, had bitterly lied to Big Baby that Daisy had replaced all of them because if he couldn't have her, then no one could. After some more arguing, Woody throws the pendant to the other side of the dumpster where Big Baby picks it up and, remembering Daisy, sniffles, "Mama". This makes Lotso snap, as he angrily snatches the pendant away from Big Baby and smashes it into pieces with his cane, which makes Big Baby start crying. Lotso then orders Stretch to push all of Andy's toys into the dumpster, insults and hits Big Baby, and rants about the meaningless value of toys. Angry at Lotso and having become fed up with all of his lies, Big Baby finally turns on his former leader, lifts him up (which makes Lotso drop his cane), throws him into the dumpster, and closes the lid shut. Big Baby then blows a raspberry directed at Lotso.
- In the terms of a "lost toy", replacing it does not equal neglecting the original toy, but would signify the special bond between the toy and the owner. Daisy had loved Lotso so much that she couldn't accept the fact that he was lost, which is why her parents replaced him with the other toy bear. Woody seemed to be clearly aware of this when he told Lotso that Daisy had loved him. Woody also makes the point that it was in fact Lotso who abandoned Daisy, as he was really upset for losing his place in the spotlight and if he couldn't have her, then nobody could. Chuckles knew that Daisy loved Lotso, but may have never gotten the opportunity to tell him because he was silenced and possibly later imprisoned at Sunnyside. Had Lotso understood this, he could have redeemed himself.
- While similar, Jessie's backstory was indeed much more depressing. Rather than being replaced by another toy, she was replaced by adolescence, as her owner Emily had grown tired of her.
- Even in spite of this, Jessie was simply depressed over her loss, showing that she was still attached to Emily. Whereas, Lotso was jealous that he was no longer the center of attention.
