Mattel and Disney really are taking the "Toy Story" crew to infinity and beyond with their new space-centered toy line.
With the Toy Story Buzz Lightyear Spaceship Command Center ($49.99; pictured above) and Toy Story figurines, including Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Rex and Zurg ($10.99 each), kids can have a blast using their imaginations to create fun space missions.
CC had the opportunity to check out the space station and the Woody figurine, and from the moment we unwrapped all of the twisty-ties and tape from the box, she was making up little space missions of her own. There's even a little voice amplifier that lets her order her space minions around the ship.

I received this package for review as part of the Mattel Disney Insider program that I belong to, and while I thought it was a cool toy, I wasn't sure if my princess-loving daughter would adopt it with such enthusiasm. But she did! There are lots of fun noises and compartments, and she was rolling it around our wood floors when she wasn't using it as a command center.
Mattel also created a "Toymation" stop-motion short movie that can be a jumping-off point for children's imaginations. Chances are, though, they'll know exactly what to do once they get their hands on the toys.
