I had been meaning to watch this movie for ages so I was glad when I saw it at a really good price in marks and spencers a while back. I got the blu ray and kept it for my boys til Eid as a present. We all sat down and watched it together and it kept their attention throughout. They are 4, 2 and 1 year old so sometimes full movies can leave their attention wandering half way through but this did seem to keep them quite gripped, and not to mention I loved it myself!
As most people are probably aware, this is a sequal to the original Disney pixar Toy story movie, and also toy story 2, which feature the well known and loved characters of Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Mr Potato head and many more. In this movie there are a couple of new additions such as Lotso the purple plush teddy who is found in the day care centre. I loved this character as his lovely soft plush looks really showed juxtaposition with his bitter outlook on life - quite a nice move, and at least its not too bland a movie with everything "nice" and no 3 dimensional characters.
Some of the scenes can be a little scary for the more sensitive children, and at some points while watching my husband said are you sure this is a U rated and not PG as he found it a bit scary for the children - for example the toys being urged towards the fire in the rubbish dump.
This movie is enjoyed by adults too as it shows the boy "andy" growing up and moving to college, hence why he does not need his toys any more. Many mums I know said they have even cried during some of these scenes as it is emotional to think about, the boy growing up and leaving his toys behind. but it is all tastefully done.
The blu ray quality is second to none, very sharp picture and was great on our large screen.
I would recommend this for adults and children alike, I have watched it again since getting it and enjoyed it again each time. There are also jokes in there suited to adults humour for example the barbie doll suddenly coming out with some intellectual comments about democracy, which is of course "unexpected" so challenges stereotypes
