With Disney's acquisition of Pixar close to being completed, a booming market in Pixar's stock certificates, decorated with the characters in Toy Story, has been set off, the Associated Press reported today (Monday).

Nevertheless, that price has apparently not deterred souvenir hunters. Byron Beach, OneShare's vice president of marketing, told AP, "It's been like Christmas all over again for us."
