Although it was eleven years ago when Joan Cusack first voiced the adorable cowgirl Jessie, the actress — and mom of two — still has a special place in her heart for the character and the movie.

“It’s such a great story about imagination and playing,” she says.

To help celebrate the series threequel (which hits theaters today), Cusack greeted fans at the Chicago Disney Store on Wednesday and helped unveil the limited edition Toy Story 3 Talking Jessie Doll ($79.50) — she even signed boxes for a few lucky kids.
