Disney reveals anticipated line of “Toy Story 3” merchandise

Our “Toy Story 3” coverage is ramping up as we rapidly approach the June 18 release date.

Late last night, Disney sent over full descriptions of the new toys kids will want to interact with once they come home from seeing the film in theaters. The movie follows Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen) and the rest of Andy’s favorite toys as they are shipped off to the Sunnyside day care. So, parents, which toys are you going to have to hunt down after the movie opens June 18?

Peas-in-a-Pod will quickly become a parent’s favorite on-the-go toy. The soft, plush pod secures the happy peas inside with a durable metal zipper, making it perfect for the car or stroller. The Peas-in-a-Pod plush toy also develops fine motor skills by catering to a child’s natural grab instinct.
