If this review was based solely on my opinion, I would have given the book 3 stars, but if my 4yr old had his way, he would give it 5 stars...hence, the 4-star split.

We loved Toy Story and Toy Story 2, so I thought my son would enjoy the book with Woody. The story is great (Andy goes to college & the toys want to stay together, even if it's in the attic), and my son loved the pictures so much that he actually told me exactly that. Also, he has been playing non-stop with the magnetic Woody.

The problem is that Woody isn't really magnetic. He only has two tiny magnets in his hands, and he didn't work at all with the book. There is a flap attached to the back of the book that you are expected to tuck behind each picture page, so Woody looks like he is part of the picture. The flap didn't fit well behind any page, and even when I tried to "stick" Woody directly on the flap, the magnets weren't strong enough, so Woody didn't work at all with the book. Also, I would put this book at the reading level of at least 7 yrs old, which I thought was a bit odd considering that it came with a toy.

However, I chose this product to review for my son, and he's been carrying the book & Woody everywhere. Woody even takes naps with him, and plays with the other toys too. I haven't seen the movie yet, so I can't compare the two, but I am really looking forward to the movie after reading this book.

The CD Toy Story Favorites will soon be available, but I recommend getting the compilation Disney Pixar Greatest instead.

.....and that's pretty bad considering that the same 4 year old is completely obsessed with all things Toy Story. I thought for sure that she'd leap for joy at this. She spotted it on the table at breakfast and pulled the woody doll out immediately and progressed to playing with it. But lost interest quickly.

I feel like they were trying to make this toy too many things to too many people. Perhaps it was meant to be baby friendly. That would explain why the doll is made of a very soft fabric material (almost like a little pillow doll) and the woody character is simply ink-screened onto the fabric. (The effect is pretty poor. The photo from Amazon makes him look better than he does in real life.) They also put VERY small magnets into each of Woody's two hands. So small, it's not so easy to get him to stick to anything unless both hands are very deliberately placed. I guess this is because of all the press that Earth magnets have been getting, so they decided that weaker ones would be safer.

Then again, if it were targeted to such a young subset, why would they make it so difficult to use? I mean, a baby or small toddler isn't going to be able to deliberately place both hands of the doll onto the book, the fridge, or whatever it needs to stick to. (I'm sort of annoyed that they didn't at least add some magnets to the feet or the head so that a kid could get a better chance of success of making it stick.) Also, the way the book is to be read: the very last page is magnetic and is to be inserted after EACH page of the story so that Woody can take part in the storytelling action. Again, this is not something many young toddlers will be able to do on their own. Besides, the story has up to 3 paragraphs (with up to 4 sentences each) on a page!

The "Toy Story 3 Best Friends Book with Magnetic Buddy" is decent, but has a few problems.

The movie adaption follows Woody, Buzz, and the gang as they prepare for their owner Andy's first of of college. The adaptation reads smoothly enough, but there are some rough spots within it. The images in this book are very pretty, very Pixar. The images are actually the best thing about this book.

The book itself doesn't have magnetic pages. It has a fold out magnet page that you insert behind the page you are currently reading.

The problems... Well, there are a few. The main problem is the magnet Woody doll. Woody is printed on thin fabric, is stuffed, and has a magnet in each hand. The magnets aren't very strong and he doesn't stay very well. A magnet in his torso or cap would have been nice.

Also, the fact that you need to to put the magnetic page under each page you're reading its a bit of a hassle. It takes a lot of work to read this book!

I would recommend looking at the other Toy Story 3 books out there before picking this one up.

My kids were so excited to get this book/toy combo. This is excitement however did not last long. The book was fun enough to read but this did not get many repeat request from my girls. The toy was filled with a few weak magnets and really was like a extra in the packet. We thought that Woody could be players with within the pages of the story, this was not true.

I hate to be so harsh in a review, but my kids (both 3.5) did not really enjoy this book. They've got quite a large book collection and they LOVE to get new books and go back to them time and time again.

However, this book was read once and then tossed aside ... same with the Woody doll.
