"Welcome to Sunnyside, folks!"
Lotso greets Andy's toys

Sunnyside Daycare is a preschool/daycare center where Andy's toys get accidentally donated to in Toy Story 3.

"Sunnyside is a place of ruin and despair, ruled by an evil bear who smells of strawberries!"
Mr. Pricklepants

Sunnyside Daycare was once a great place for toys to be played with until Lotso arrived after being replaced by his original owner, Daisy. He took over Sunnyside, turning it into a place where only some toys got the privilege of being played with by nicer kids in the Butterfly Room while the rest, such as Andy's toys, were subjected to being abused, kicked, and beaten up by toddlers in the Caterpillar Room. He only let toys that he thought were special into the better part of Sunnyside, which was almost a paradise for toys. He also established his gang of toys who would patrol around Sunnyside to ensure that all toys assigned to the Caterpillar Room wouldn't escape. Finally, Andy's toys, led by the wise cowboy doll Woody, proved to be the first to breach the guards and escape. Sometime after Lotso was done away with, Barbie and Ken revolutionized Sunnyside and became its new leaders. They restored the daycare to its original greatness, and warmly welcomed toys such as Emperor Zurg and Sarge and the Army Men to their happy home. 



Sunnyside was a bright building with a rainbow in the doorway that was made up of many different rooms, dividing the different aged kids. The Butterfly Room was where the older kids being taken care of. They were civilized and knew how to play peacefully with their toys. This is where most donated toys were dropped off originally. The Butterfly Room had boxes full of scraps and spare parts in case any toys were broken and was also the room where Ken's Dream House was. Younger children and toddlers were kept in the Caterpillar Room, and this is where Lotso and his gang brought new toys so they themselves wouldn't have to be mishandled by the toddlers. There was also a Vending Machine down the hall from the Caterpillar Room where Lotso and his gang would have secret meetings at night and gamble. Sunnyside Daycare was complete with a playground, a sandbox, and a garden, as well as a garbage chute that led to a dumpster outside of the facility.



"New Toys!"

"Daycare is a sad, lonely place for washed up old toys who have no owners."

Sunnyside is home to hundreds of toys. Some of the most prominent are named below.
