After buying my four-year-old son multiple sets of cheap toy soldiers, I found this one that just came out. What a great set! There are ten different poses of soldiers, plus two parachuting soldiers, the soldiers have sturdy bases so they aren't hard for little fingers to set up and it comes in a nice big tub with a handle, perfect for taking along to Grandpa's house! The figures themselves are nicely made and detailed, without any molding edges that could scratch little ones. The only knock would be that the parachutes get easily tangled, but I really don't know how you could avoid that problem in any set. I would highly recommend this to any parent looking for a toy to stimulate the imagination.

I have to say that overall my kids and I liked the soldiers, as others have noted it is made of a softer plastic that seems more durable and cleaner. Far better than any of the cheap bagged sets you often find in the toy or grocery store. The highlight of the collection by far are the parachuters and while they do get tangled up they have held up well. So why the four star versus a five? The fact that there are ten of each figure, yes ten mine sweepers, ten bazooka, ten mortar, ten rifle men and so on, but you also get ten commanding officers in each of the two stances. In other words you get twenty sergeants. Something not apparent in the pictures or on the container. I would have liked two or three extra of each of the other five figures and less sergeants.

The 72-piece "Bucket O Soldiers", a part of the Toy Story collector's edition, captures the fun of little green army men at a great price. My sons are too young to have experienced Toy Story (1995) and Toy Story 2 (1999) in the theaters. They only recently experienced Woody, Buzz and the rest of the toys on DVD, so I was unsure how they would like greet a bucket of plastic army men under the Christmas tree.

I sat on the couch, watching my sons set up soldiers on the wood floor. Inspiration took hold. Soon, they added a couple Matchbox cars; then, a multi-colored wall of Legos and, finally, four glow-in-the-dark super balls (which rolled through the soldiers with dramatic effect). I could no longer sit idly by and watch. Nostalgia had me on the floor, reliving my childhood with my sons.

Waaaaaaahooooooooooooooooooo!!!

Great features:

Value - you get 72 soldiers (includes 2 airborne soldiers with parachutes) in each bucket.

Portability - the toy soldiers easily fit inside, making this a great travel toy.

Quality - I noted the bucket was made in China but the molds are fantastic and clean; I haven't come across a bad edge yet.

In summary, this is a good, introductory collection at a great value. Don't choose the flimsy, inferior quality toy soldiers sold at dollar stores and discount warehouses. Your children will love appreciate the quality provided by Disney & Pixar.

Rating: Five stars.

My son like numerous other children loves the Toy Story movies. He loves these little guys they are exactly like the movie, except they don't come to life. However, you will come to life when you step on one of these at 5:00 AM in the morning!!

My son is into playing army so I picked these up for Christmas, the bucket is sturdy and the lid stays on well so they are easy to keep in one place, much better than the zip lock bag method we were using and the army guys are just hands above better than any I have ever seen. Check out the Toy Story tank, it is equally as good in quality!

My son loved this set (as a huge Toy Story fan), the pieces are durable and it comes with two parachuted soldiers. I bought it for about eight bucks but would have spent twenty. My daughter loves it too. I should have bought two more sets for my nephews.

Your child will love these army guys. We have tons of other types but these are the best made and larger in size than average. They are still overpriced but it is official Toy Story toys.

These toy soldiers were absolutely wonderful for my 5 year old son! They look JUST like the ones in the movie!! And I love the fact that there's no sharp edges to cut his little fingers on. Like someone above me said - the only bad thing is that the parachutes do get tangled up very easily, but I really don't think there is any that can be done about that. We LOVE these & have TONS of fun playing with them! Would definately recommend them! :)

The Bucket o Soldiers was purchased for Christmas after not being able to find it in any of the local stores. The fact that it was delivered within two days was fantastic. They were exactly what my son wanted and it was even shipped to another state where we traveled for our holiday. Great service and he loves them!!

Grandson and great-nephew show their imagination playing with these. As I imagined they spread them out all over and make up the battle. Fun toy to encourage their imagination.
