Toy Story: An Interactive Pop-Up Book and BEYOND!

As mentioned before (in this Toy Story Pop-Up book post), I grew up loving pop-up books. There was always something so fun and fascinating about them to me; like how they are engineered to fit so much dimension in each page in addition to the movable features.

This "Toy Story: An Interactive Pop-Up Book and BEYOND!" book takes it to the next level with more interactivity than the standard pop-up book. When I saw it recently, I knew it was a must have for my collection!

This book was released in September 2012 with the designs and engineering by Yevgeniya Teretskaya. It's four pages long and simply goes through the story of the entire Toy Story trilogy.

Lets get to it!

When you first open the book, you'll notice nine quality "punch out" three-dimensional characters to play with alongside the 3D story: Bullseye, Jessie, Woody, Buttercup, Buzz Lightyear, Trixie and three Pizza Planet Aliens. A tenth character, Slinky, is also included, but more on that below.

 The first page, naturally, is Andy's bedroom. This one is loaded is features!

Make Woody jealous by turning Andy's cowboy themed room into Buzz Lighteyear themed! Change over the bed, the pillow and the poster.

Also, here is where we can find the Slinky 3D punch-out. He is included behind the flap on the left side of the page.

Create the scene from the film using the other included characters as seen below.

 In the second page we head to Pizza Planet for some "Rocket Ship Crane Game" action.

Use the magnetic, movable "claw" to snatch up one of the punch-out aliens and create the iconic scene from the film.

Next we head to the story of Toy Story 2 with a page dedicated to Al the toy collector's Woody's Roundup collection.

Watch out for Stinky Pete the prospector...he's up to no good!

Recreate the memorable scene when Woody finds out he's a famous character and collector's item. The record player includes spinnable record and movable tone arm.

The fourth and final page is the emotional ending scene from Toy Story 3, when Andy gives over his special toys to the adorable Bonnie.

 Put Buttercup (or any character) in Bonnie's backpack for safe keeping!

Use this tab to make Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head's eyes move from side to side.

 Rex's arms move side to side as well by sliding this tab.

The gang's all here! This is an outstanding book with fun features, intricately crafted pages and amazing (not to mention classy) illustrations. This is a must have for Toy Story fans-the young or the young at heart!

It's pretty easy to find online. If you're interested, or eBay using the link below:
