Toy Story 4 Buzz & Woody's Carnival Mania! Review (LEGO)

Toy Story 4 Buzz & Woody's Carnival Mania!
What It Is

Young Toy Story fans will like building and playing out the fun from Toy Story 4 with LEGO sets designed especially for them. All of the Toy Story 4 construction sets are for ages 4 and up, perfect for the builder who has graduated from LEGO Duplo but may still be a little too young for the more sophisticated LEGO builds.

In this lineup, you can build Woody & RC. RC looks just like the remote-control racecar from the movie, complete with real-rolling wheels. With the set's 69 pieces, you also get to build a remote for the Woody minifigure to hold. And there is space in the cockpit for Woody to sit and "drive". The Woody minifigure is dressed in the character's signature cowboy outfit, complete with removable hat and hair combo. This allows you to easily rotate Woody's head to switch his facial expression. Also included in the set are traffic cones, little green LEGO Army men, and blocks for stacking and creating obstacle courses.

The 178-piece RV Vacation set lets kids build and play out a scene from the new movie, complete with Rex, Jessie, a Green Alien, and Forky figures. Rex has poseable arms and legs, Jessie's head has two facial expressions, and the Green Alien has a poseable head. Build an RV vehicle with real-rolling wheels, plus opening windows and a moving ladder. The top of the RV can be removed for easier access to the interior, which features a sink, toilet, and driver's seat. You can also remove part of the top to reveal beds. Build a picnic scene with campfire for roasting marshmallows and a picnic table. Accessories include a hot dog, a stick with marshmallow, a cup, a bowl, a camera, and a skateboard. There's also a Grand Basin sign with moving barricade.

Buzz & Woody's Carnival Mania is a 230-piece set that comes with minifigures of Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Bo Peep, Bunny, and Ducky. Woody and Bo Peep each have two facial expressions. Use the pieces to build a variety of carnival rides and games. There are two bumper cars with real-rolling wheels. Try your luck launching projectiles at the rocket targets in the Star Adventurer game. And spin around and around in the octopus-like ride. There's also an ice cream shop to sit and take a break.

Add more fun to the Carnival with the Carnival Thrill Coaster set, a 98-piece set that lets kids build an oval-shaped rollercoaster with caterpillar coaster cars. In this set, you get a Buzz Lightyear minifigure and a Green Alien figure. Place the figures in the coaster and push it around the track to start the ride. A moving camera accessory can pretend to take a picture while you ride. There's also a food/balloon cart with a balloon accessory, a pizza, and a popsicle.

Is It Fun?

These construction sets will be fun and easy for kids to build. We like the amount of detail and action in each of these sets that allow young fans to recreate favorite scenes from the movie or imagine their own stories.
