In anticipation of the release of “Toy Story 4” in 2019, the brand partnered with Disney to create a line of belts, lanyards, guitar straps, wallets, dog collars, leashes, and more – all embellished with the images of beloved Pixar characters from all three “Toy Story” movies.
Disney bloggers, Instagrammers, and YouTubers came decked out in Disneybound outfits and Buckle-Down accessories as they mingled with local families (and their dogs!) at the party.
“You’ve Got a Friend in Me” was the song of the day, as guests posed together in front of “Toy Story”-themed backdrops and a real-life Pizza Planet Truck.
There were plenty of activities to entertain the party’s youngest guests, including lawn games, giant versions of Connect Four and Jenga, sidewalk chalk, coloring pages and crayons, and even a claw machine filled with Buckle-Down accessories!
Magic Mike’s Pizza was on hand with complimentary slices of cheese pizza, while some attendees beat the SoCal heat with sno-cones. Buckle-Down even supplied refreshments for the party’s four-legged guests – bowls of water and dog biscuits.
For the “Toy Story” aficionados, there was a trivia contest created and hosted by Tiffany Mink and Sarah Sterling, popular Disney YouTubers.
Mink and Sterling, Disney superfans themselves, wore outfits inspired by Woody and Buzz Lightyear and quizzed party guests on “Toy Story” trivia questions that ranged from elementary to obscure. The winning teams were rewarded with Buckle-Down “Toy Story” accessories, and all participants were gifted Buckle-Down bracelets featuring the adorable three-eyed alien toys from the films.
The party was also a showcase for Disney-inspired fashion, with VIP guests rocking a variety of eye-catching ensembles modeled after “Toy Story” characters, enhanced by Buckle-Down cinch belts, lanyards, and the company’s signature seatbelt belts.
Even canines got in on the act, with Instagram famous pups sporting colorful leashes and collars. But it wasn’t just the VIP guests who were able to get their hands on the new collection – Buckle-Down also gave all party attendees a choice of one of their “Toy Story” products to take home!
