Fisher Price Imaginext Toy Story 3 Landfill Junkyard

Updated on July 4, 2017

The Fisher Price Imaginext Toy Story 3 Tri-County Landfill

Did you love Toy Story 3? It was so much fun and the Fisher Price Imaginext Toy Story 3 Tri-County Landfill toy re-lives the part of the movie when Buzz gets caught up at the Tri-City Dump and has to escape danger with the help from his friends.

It is a good addition to the Toy Story 3 toys from Imaginext and predicated to be one of the hottest toys for Christmas 2010.

The Fisher Price Imaginext Tri-County Landfill Toy Story 3 playset (yes that is a mouthful!) includes the following:

- You get Buzz Lightyear, Lotso and three of the Little Green Aliens

- The giant scoop that you can use to pick up the characters and place them on the conveyor belt that drops the figures from one level to the next.

- Don't let them fall into the incinerator at the bottom though! Use the crane and whisk them away to safely.

- You also get other accessories like a bulldozer, and some junk from the junkyard

See it in action

Our Review

This is a great little playset for fans of Toy Story 3 and like all of the Imaginext products by Fisher Price it is well made with soft corners and easy access to all the moving parts it has.

The toy itself is study and includes two conveyor belts, a crane with a grappling hook, an incinerator, trash sorter and dump basket just like in the movie where Buzz Lightyear is stuck at the junkyard.

It's best suited for children aged two and over (the manufacturer recommends ages three and up - but I think two year olds will still want to play with this - they just might not get how to pull up the crane yet).

Overall it's a great toy that would make a good gift.

Some of my observations from the manufacturers claims for this toy:

Relive one of the most fun scenes from the movie

This is actually one of the funniest claims from the manufacturer. Yes it was a good scene, but the 'most fun' one cracks me up. Seriously? I would rather surmise that it was one of the easiest scenes to recreate as a toy, and THEREFORE why it's their pick for best scene by Fisher Price. ;)

Three levels of play including giant scoop

All this is really describing is the toy itself, in that it has three floors and a big scooper thing on the end of it. Which it has. So, um, yes. All correct.

Three character figures: Lotso, Buzz & Three Little Aliens

Again yes, they were all included in the pack. So correct again Fisher Price ;) Actually I have to say, those little alien guys are my favorite - and have been from all the Toy Story movies actually. Soo cute when they go - ooooooohhh. LOL

Conveyor Belt carries junk to the furnace

Well sure, you have to 'help' it carry the junk by turning the handle knob thingy, which will then take it and drop it into the yellow bucket furnace thingy. It really would have been cooler if it had batteries and you could flick a switch. Not that the kids mind, they like turning the knob. And I guess that's the point - manual dexterity and all.

Turn figure to spin the sorter.

What this means is that you place one of the characters on the red knob at the top and twist it around so the sorter arm moves and you can place your junk (which most of the time in our house are pieces of lego or old barbie shoes) into different piles. In reality most of everything ends up jumbled together. So 'sorting' is a bit optimistic.

Another thing I wanted to take issue with before I go. On the Amazon website under product description it says: "Now boys can play out fun Disney/Pixar Toy Story 3 adventures ..."

Boys? Only boys can play with this? Hmm. I better tell that to my daughter who loves this toy. I guess because it doesn't come in pink it must only be for the opposite gender. Sigh.

Have Your Say - What's your favorite toy from the Toy Story 3 range?
