On The Christmas Toy, Balthazar is mostly concerned about his feelings of stress. Being one of the older toys, he finds it hard to remember the last time the children Jamie and Jesse took him out of the playroom.
The newer Balthazar from Secret Life of Toys was larger and had a more elderly look, with a red button for a monocle. He functions as a fatherly figure for the toys. Despite his age, everybody looks up to him. He signals the toys when it's safe to move: "All clear, everyone! They're gone!"
