In the Toy Story films it seems like nearly all toys know that they are toys meant for children to play with. However Buzz Lightyear (and other Buzz Lightyear toys like him) thinks he's a real space ranger and nothing short of his own arm breaking off convinces him otherwise.

At one point Buzz even reverts back to believing he's a space ranger, not a toy.

[Lotso] resets him to his original space ranger persona, which also resets his memory.

- Toy Story 3

How is this possible? Why is not knowing he's a toy Buzz's default setting while every other toy's default is to know they are toys? Why doesn't Buzz know he's a toy?
