Toy Story: Buzz Lightyear Lights & Sounds Keychain
This Buzz Lightyear light-up keychain was an item that I had a lot of fun tracking down last week during our visit to Walt Disney World. I had seen it on the Shop Disney Parks app and had planned on getting it, but it turned out to be pretty tough to find. It's definitely not a common item there.
The app said it was at the ImageWorks gift shop in Epcot, but when I got to the actual store, the cast members told me that the app was incorrect and that they never had any in stock. The only other two places the app indicated this was sold at were the Settlement and Meadow Trading Posts at the Fort Wilderness resort...which was pretty far out of the way.
The last morning we were there, I decided to just bite the bullet and drive over to Fort Wilderness (since we had our own car). Lo and behold, there it was at the Meadow Trading Post! I had been looking out for it in every gift shop all week, so it was nice to finally see it hanging there. Retail was $9.99.
This is a really cool and fun little keychain; and as mentioned, it even has little lights and sounds! Press the button on his back and his laser lights up with sound effects. Check out my very brief video demonstration below-
One final note, I'm not sure if this is suppose to be the Small Fry Buzz from the Toy Story Toon or just a stylized Buzz that happens to look [very] similar to that. It does have almost the exact likeness of the Small Fry character, but nothing on his tag or the Disney Parks app states it officially. The one detail that makes it confusing for me is that this Buzz has a laser and the Small Fry Buzz doesn't. So what do you think?
