Enter a wacky 3-D world where toys come to life. As you read along, it’s up to you to help Woody and Buzz escape from bad-boy Sid, catch the moving van, and become best buddies. Every page is packed with surprises and gags, plus music and 3-D graphics just like in the movie, for a non-stop reading adventure worth getting all wound up about. Disney’s Toy Story is a condensed version of the movie, complete with the same phenomenal Pixar-produced animation, and familiar character voices. Built around ten screen shots, the Toy Story CD captures the story pretty well. Educational content? In addition to the narrator’s reading of a small piece of highlighted text on each screen, Toy Story includes five integrated activities. Unlike some previous Disney StoryBooks, these activity screens are not optional side-roads to the storyline; here, they are inserted directly between sequences in the story. The activities focus on early learning skills, like matching colors, hand eye coordination, following oral directions, and navigating mazes. The best among these were those requiring the user to follow oral directions. One favorite, for example, was a version of the “you’re getting warmer” location game.
