Summary: Toy Story 3 is definitely one of my favorites that Pixar has pulled out for theaters. While the console versions of the video game have managed to fare just fine as well, the handheld versions have had, appropriately enough, less attention. After experiencing this Nintendo DS edition one more time, I gotta say I'm sorry for having given this a 4-star review initially (This review is entirely rewritten as of 9/12/2013).
Summary: My 9 yr. old daughter conquered this game in 2 days. I was disappointed for a $40.00 game to be so easy to play. My daughter suggests this game for 4-7 yrs of age. We have the Wii Toy Story 3 and it is alot of fun for all ages.
Excerpt: We actually rented the game for the WII, which is supposed to be like the ds game. We heard it was good, were excited. But disappointed, it was a little hard for my 6 yr old and we spent so much time running around looking for things. And some rooms you have to figure it out yourself, how to finish it. It got boring after a while because some of the levels were pretty hard and we couldn't get past it. I played with him and it was hard for me too.
Story mode is too short and a poor value for young players

Summary: My sons (ages 7 & 6) finished this game in a single afternoon. Worse yet, they showed no interest in replaying it, making Toy Story 3 my most expensive DS purchase. A good game can last weeks, even months with repeated play. Geez, we still have two copies of and we purchased them nearly two years ago! The story mode mixes adventure play and mini-games. Beware though, story mode is very short. The game offers two other modes - Imaginary World and Playtime.
Summary: My son is 6 and beat this game in a matter of hours. He still goes in and plays the mini games and sometimes goes back through the real game, but it is too easy. I would still recommend this game to others just because it is cute and fun at first. Especially for a beginner learning to play games. However, it is a bit pricey when you beat it in just a few hours.
Summary: Received promptly, but packaging looks a bit DIY. Looks like someone has wrapped the box in poor quality cellophane themselves. Was expecting the real thing. My 5 year old is yet to open it so not sure what the quality of the product is but does not look like it has come direct out of the factory floor!
Summary: I was disappointed with this Nintendo game. It was bought for my 3 year old who loves his Fireman Sam and Thomas games. It offers very few games and requires adult skills to play the few that are there. Age 6/7 and up at least.
