Continuity mistake: During Andy's daydream at the beginning of the film, Mr. Potato Head has an eye patch over his left eye. When the daydream cuts back to reality we see that Andy has removed Mr. Potato Head's left eye to symbolize the eye patch. But when Andy's mum comes in with the video camera, his left eye is suddenly back in. (00:01:15 - 00:05:25)
Continuity mistake: When Mom gives Molly the donation box she writes "Sunnyside" on one side of the corrugated box. When the Sunnyside box is in the car and also when Mom carries it to the daycare, there is printed writing at the side of the box (to the right of the "e" in Sunnyside) under the hand hole, but when Bonnie's Mom carries the box into the butterfly room that writing has vanished, then it reappears when the kids go to recess. (00:19:25)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Woody is escaping from the daycare for the first time, we see him in a hallway hiding behind a no running yellow stand up sign. He is also at the hallway corner because we can see two women talking down the other side of the corner. He then proceeds down the hallway a couple of steps, he then seeing the janitor coming and immediately falls very close to that sign, Then from a bird eye view scene next, woody is now in the middle off the hallways and the sign is nowhere to be found as the janitor rolls over woody where the sign should be.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the janitor goes into the bathroom to wash his hands, he originally, whilst entering the room pushing his cart complete in front of the stall, but when it cuts over to where woody sneaks into the stall, the cart is now moved to only halfway blocking the stall door.
Continuity mistake: When Woody and Buzz are standing on top of the cabinet looking at the photo they hear the kids and mom coming, they immediately jump down from the cabinet and land on the bottom open drawer, next to blue skateboard, then on the floor and they both run to the toy chest without looking back. Two shots later, when the door opens and the kids/mom come in, you can see that the drawer is now closed. (00:11:40)
Continuity mistake: After Chuckles tells the story of Lotso we see the gang locked up at the daycare center. Jessie comforts Bullseye and looks at the word "Andy" on her boot (with the "A" on the inner side) . Woody returns and when the bell rings for the kids to go outside, we see Jessie on the floor. Notice that the "Andy" on her boot is now different (the "A" is on the outer part of her boot). (00:52:50 - 00:57:10)
Continuity mistake: When the toys escape from the daycare, the paint on their bodies appear and disappear back and forth.
Continuity mistake: When Woody is escaping through the bathroom stall window, he climbs up the stall on the same side as the janitor's right shoulder, but he climbs out in the mirror image on the janitor's left shoulder. You can also see the smudge is on his left shoulder. He escaped on the opposite side of the stall to which he climbed up.
Continuity mistake: When the Fisher Price phone is telling Woody about the monkey, he also says the wall is eight feet tall. Security camera footage shows toys scaling the wall, almost making it to the top. When it cuts to the toys climbing, they are only about one or two feet off the ground.
