Pros


Price: At $26.89, Toy Story Monopoly is one of the most affordable Monopoly games for older children. Considering the Disney/Pixar copyright of the Toy Story world and its characters, getting this game for $26.89 is really a steal.

With familiar locations and characters that the kids will be sure to recognize, getting them started on Toy Story Monopoly is a great plan. While classic Monopoly may be unfamiliar and too grown-up for the children to have an interest in, the colorful locations in Toy Story Monopoly will definitely draw their attention, as well as the ability to play as their favorite characters.

Since Toy Story Monopoly mimics classic Monopoly almost exactly, it is an excellent bridging game to eventually ease the children into playing adult Monopoly. Even if you are simply playing with friends, taking a break from the usual Monopoly properties to embrace the world of magic can be a breath of fresh air.


Cons


Toy Story Monopoly is only suitable for children ages 8 and up, although younger ones may also enjoy the Toy Story movies and want in on the action. In such cases, you may have to find something else to entertain the little ones with, as they may not be able to fully understand how to play Toy Story Monopoly.

It seems that every aspect of Toy Story Monopoly is exactly the same as classic Monopoly in terms of gameplay, with the only difference being the custom locations, money, cards and pieces. In every other aspect, playing Toy Story Monopoly is probably just another game of classic Monopoly. As such, if you are looking for a slightly different edition of Monopoly that makes things more interesting, Toy Story Monopoly may not be for you.

Additionally, if you are not a fan of the Toy Story films or Disney/Pixar works, then Toy Story Monopoly may not hold much appeal for you since it does not offer anything extra other than the immersion into the Toy Story world. In such a case, you may wish to take a look at other Monopoly editions that either have a different gameplay or are more relatable.


Overall Review


We think that Toy Story Monopoly is an excellent game to add to the collection due to its very affordable price.

However, if you intend to buy the game just for the purpose of playing it, we suggest you purchase it only if you are comfortable with playing exactly the same way as classic Monopoly. This may be a non-issue for some people who simply want to enjoy classic Monopoly together with the Toy Story world.

Toy Story Monopoly seems to be a simple enough game with no added parts to it, so anyone can be able to enjoy the game especially if they love Toy Story and Disney/Pixar animations. No batteries are required for playing the game. The only thing you have to be careful of is that your game pieces may come to life when nobody is watching!
