Overview

Lego Toy Story was based on the Disney·Pixar's Toy Story film franchise. The product line focuses on the anthropomorphic concept that all toys, unknown to humans, are secretly alive and the films focus on a diverse group of toys that feature a classic cowboy doll named Sheriff Woody and a modern spaceman action figure named Buzz Lightyear. The group unexpectedly embark on adventures that challenge and change them.
