The third film in this trilogy takes place eight years after the events of the second film and the toys are dying for some attention.

But after a couple of close calls and detours the group ends up at Sunnyside Daycare where they will be seemingly be played with a revolving door of kids for years to come but Sunnyside might not be exactly as cozy as it seems.
Head here to print off your coupons which saves $5 dollars on each title for a total of $10 of savings on the two titles. But that is not all, at Target the titles are selling for $19.99 each, plus if you buy both you save another $10 so you get both Toy Story’s on Blu for $20 Dollars! That is a deal.
Also, if you have any of the old Toy Story DVD’s you might want to hold on to those and not trade them in, especially the Ultimate Toy Box Collection, as there are still a few extras not ported over to these Blu-Ray’s.
