What kind of expression is "get with someone"?
In the case of the video here, "get with a kid" just refers to Buzz Lightyear having a kid win him as a prize and getting to go home with that kid as their new toy. To "get with" someone or something can also mean to become very focused on that thing, or engaged in a conversation with that person. However, you should be careful how you use this expression because in other contexts, "get with someone" can be slang for having a romantic interaction or having sexual relations with someone. Ex: Hurry up and get with the project! Ex: He has been trying to get with her since high school.
