"Get real. We have no arms."
—The Fire Tikes in the Toy Story: Animated Storybook game

Tikes are a set of toys from the Toddle Tots line by the Little Tikes company. They appear throughout Toy Story and Toy Story 2 as a part of Andy's Toys. They are mischievous and childlike in nature. They are often seen in their own groups, and exhibit a wide variety of appearances and professions. They communicate through unintelligible high-pitched squeaks, only heard speaking English in Toy Story Animated Storybook. They reside under Andy's bed when not being played with.

Toy Story

In Toy Story, the Tikes can be seen when Andy was playing with his toys; having them play hostages to Mr. Potato Head's One-Eyed Bart. As Slinky is helping Woody gather a staff meeting, they're seen congregating by his podium and watching in the audience. After the meeting is disrupted by the surprise appearance of guests for Andy's birthday, they join a group of toys anxiously looking out the window. They're put at ease with the rest of Andy's toys when Woody agrees to send in Sergeant's Green Army Men to report back on their gifts. After Andy unexpectedly returns back to his room, the Tikes are seen frantically returning to their spots.

Upon Andy's move, a few of the Tikes are awakened by Woody looking for RC Car in the moving van. The rest of Andy's toys turn on Woody and throw him out of the van, believing him to be a killer. They change their minds when Lenny reports back that Woody was using RC to save Buzz. Months later when Andy is moved into his new house, the Toikes are seen celebrating Christmas with the other tots.

Toy Story 2

In Toy Story 2, all of the previous Tikes (save for one Fire Tike) return, along with a few others (see below). The Fire Tikes are originally looking for Woody's lost hat in the toy box along with Mr. Shark and the Green Army Men. Meanwhile, the other Tikes were listening to Mrs. Potato Head read a book to them and playing in the Lincoln Logs cabin. After the announcement of a yard sale, the Tikes were seen lining up with the other toys to be counted for Buzz Lightyear's roll call.

After Woody was kidnapped, the Shriner Tike was used in a re-enactment of the event, playing the role of his car, to help Hamm figure out which direction he went. They're distracted by Buzz in the middle of his own investigation on the other side of the room. When Woody returns with new toys, they watch as Jessie jumps through the Hotwheels track to let Buster out of the room. They are last seen when Wheezy was singing "You've Got a Friend in Me" to Andy's toys.

Toy Story 3

The Tikes and the Toddle Tots Fire Truck do not appear in Toy Story 3. It's very likely that they were sold in a yard sale, donated or given away over the years due to being the toys from when Andy was a toddler.

Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins

In Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins, five of the Tikes come over to watch the movie with all of the other toys.

Toy Story Animated Storybook

The Tikes appear in Toy Story Animated Storybook during Woody's staff meeting, Woody knocking Buzz out the window, Woody and Buzz catching up to the moving van, and Andy's toys celebrating Christmas at their new home.

Toy Story Activity Center

In the Toy Story Activity Center game, Slinky Dog watches as the Tikes face off against the Green Army Men in a game of " being used in a game against the Green Army Men called "five-in-a-row." All of the previous Tikes introduced in Toy Story are seen observing the game. The player has the option of taking either side in the game.

Another set of Tikes appears to provide options and instructions for Rex's marble art section.

Trivia

  • The real life Toddle Tots line was first introduced in the late 80s by Little Tikes. The Fire Truck was introduced in 1986, though the model used as the basis for the films was a revision from 1988 (set 0671), which substituted the original blue uniform firefighters for ones clad in black. The set came with five figures; four firefighters (two white and two black) and a dog (not seen in the films). The rest of the Tikes were not based in real life toys, with the exception of the Sailor Tike, which is a different color.
  • Although they never appear to talk in the films, two of the Fire Tikes do have speaking roles in Toy Story Animated StoryBook. When you click on them to help Woody and Buzz onto the moving van they say, "Get real, we have no arms!", and in the Christmas ending one of the Tikes gives the other one mittens for a present, who then says, "Just what I needed."
  • The Tikes appear as a mission in Toy Story 2: The Video Game. There are five of them scattered throughout a level that Buzz must find in order to earn a Pizza Planet token. This type of mission is also used for the Green Army Men, Aliens, and Bo Peep's Sheep, but is used for the Tikes more than once.
