Toy Story 2 Bookends

Right around when Toy Story 2 came out (I was nine), my parents surprised me with this great set of Toy Story bookends! I believe they were available at the Disney Store and Parks—from what I remember, I actually think they got this set for me at Disney World back in the day. Anyway, I'm so glad I kept them nice as they have become one of my favorite collectibles. These extremely well made but also fragile. 

Both of these bookends have great detail; I especially love the nods to some of Pixar's early short films like Knick Knack, Red's Dream and Tin Toy. Back when I got this, I never knew about those films and didn't realize what those "book titles" were referring to. Finding Nemo had not been released so most of the world had not seen Knick Knack yet and I didn't see the other two films mentioned until the Pixar Shorts Volume 1 DVD was released. Does anyone know if the other three book titles here are referencing anything else? 

This is an extremely rare hard to find set. I have looked everywhere online and have yet to even see an image of this. If anyone sees it somewhere, let me know! I'm just curious to see if anyone else is aware of this.

A similar bookend set was released in 2010 at the Disney Store and was based off Toy Story 3. It featured Lotso, Chunk and Stretch along with Woody, Jessie, an Alien, Buzz and Bullseye. If you're a Toy Story fan, keep a look out for either of these bookends! It's a great way to display your Pixar library or Blu-Ray/DVD collection!
