What’s not to love about the Toy Story movies, and now you can have them all on DVD, Blu Ray and digital format. This Ultimate Toy Box is a great value if you have not got the Toy Story movies on Blu Ray yet as it is cheaper than buying them all separately, plus you get the DVD and digital copies as well.
You get all of the special features which are included on the movies if you buy them separately including. The quality of the Blu Ray dvds of Toy Story is excellent – it is as though the original was made only yesterday.
Whilst the Toy Story boxed set does offer a huge amount of extra features there isn’t anything exclusive to this set which is a pity as it would have been nice to have included something extra.

Reviews for the Tory Story Ultimate Toy Box are largely very positive. Buyers like the extra features and the quality of the Blu Ray DVDs. One thing that many don’t like however is the packaging. The Toy Story chest looks cute from the outside but unfortunately the dvd’s don’t have their own individual packaging and do have to be handled to get them out of the box. Most reviewers feel though that for the money they are a very good deal. Check it out for your self by clicking the links below.
