Actress Ally Maki is featured in Disney/Pixar’s just-released “Toy Story 4” as a new character, Giggle McDimples.

Giggle McDimples is a miniature plastic doll from the 1980s. As a toy, Officer Giggle McDimples is head of Pet Patrol for Mini-opolis, overseeing search and rescue. But out in the world, Giggle is the best friend of Bo Peep (Annie Potts). Small enough to perch on Bo’s shoulder, Giggle is Bo’s confidant, supporter and advisor.

Director Josh Cooley says, “Giggle is Bo’s Jiminy Cricket — we’re able to get insight on Bo through their relationship together. Giggle is definitely the smallest toy in the ‘Toy Story’ universe. She’s been stepped on, vacuumed up, and probably put up a kid’s nose in her time. Giggle McDimples literally pops on the screen because of Ally’s personality and infectious energy. Nobody can laugh like Ally Maki.”
