Toy Story: MagicBandits

Toy Story MagicBandits have finally arrived! Since I started collecting these last year during our trip to Disney World (see my other posts featuring Monsters Inc., The Incredibles and Cars Bandits), I had actually hoped that Toy Story ones would come out one day. Well, that day has come!

MagicBandits are something I had a lot of fun collecting during our last Disney World visit. I had no idea about these before we arrived, but they turned out to be a really fun surprise. If you've never heard of them, they're basically just little accessories that snap into the extra holes of your magic band (seen below) to add additional pops of color and personality. At first when I saw these, I thought they were kind of a pointless way for Disney World to make extra money. I was like"these are lame, who would buy these." That thought didn't last more than ten seconds once I saw Pixar themed ones.

The first Pixar Bandits I ever saw in the parks were the Monsters Inc. ones, which sold me on the idea of these things. I thought it would be fun to add some of my love for Pixar to my magic band and my overall "ensemble". After finding those, I was hooked and looked for more Pixar related Bandits. I then found a great Cars 3-pack (featuring Lightning Mcqueen, Mater and Lightning's signature number 95 logo) and then found out there was a rare/sold out Incredibles 4-pack (which I got online once I got home). 

You may be wondering if these stay on well. Yes, once you pop them on, they're pretty secure. They can snag on things, however, and pop off (I had that happen once or twice, for example getting off of Rockin' Roller Coaster). For the most part though, you won't have to worry about them falling off. Getting these for young kids though may be a different story, since they could easily rip them off and toss them aside. I definitely wouldn't get them for kids under six or seven, but it totally depends on the kid of course. Just in case you do plan on getting these Bandits for very young kids, be aware that they can easily be snagged on something or pulled off and lost.

You can find these in Disney Parks now. They were literally just available at the last week (that's where I bought them), but looking back they seem to be already sold out there. There's always eBay though, so visit this direct link to check out current listings. Good luck on the hunt!
