'Toy Story' Blasts Off into Space + Giveaway

CC plays with the Toy Story Buzz Lightyear Spaceship Command Center.
UPDATE: Congrats to ryanac32, who won the Buzz Lightyear Spaceship Command Center and Space Figure! (And thanks to Random.org for helping me decide.) Please email me at losangelesstory@gmail.com with your address. This was an amazing giveaway, and thanks to everyone who participated. Stay tuned for more!

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.

The Woody space figure zooms around on a rover vehicle.

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.

My nephew is in LOVE Toy Story. His favorite part of the movie is when Buzz tires to fly at Sid's house but fails and breaks his arm; his eyes always get watery.

First time I asked him he said "I don't know". Second time he said
"I have to think about it". Then he popped up and said, "Ooooohhhh the part with Woody chasing the train!"

My son walks around saying "pack your angry eyes ... just in case". I never knew what he was talking about until his caregiver told me it was from Toy Story!

Sara said...

One of the first things my son said was, "To infinity and beyond!" it took me a few days to figure out that's what he's saying, but :) anytime buzz says that is his favorite. (littlesillysally@gmail.com)
