Andy's bedroom undergoes many changes throughout the Toy Story series, depending on Andy's current interests/obsession. His room begins in the first Toy Story with a Western theme because he loves Woody, then changes to an outer-space theme when he prefers Buzz. In Toy Story 3, Andy's room is cluttered with both childhood and adolescent memorabilia. He must get rid of his toys (childhood) in order to move forward into adulthood. Though Andy's early room themes might seem extreme and somewhat obsessive, they do well to illustrate the fleeting and ever-changing desires of (most) children.
