The bright remote control car in Toy Story is known as RC Car or RC. He appears in all the films as a friendly, dog-like toy. I’m reminding you of who the character is because Redditor goshwinkle recently turned their daughter into RC. It’s the time of year when parents are sharing pictures of the costumes they’ve made for their kids for Halloween, and RC was made for a school assembly. Goshwinkle says:
We built it together out of insulation foam. The eyes light up and the wheels all spin. I made a little dash from an old galaxy note phone with various funny horn sounds.
