With only one week to go until the end of our Disney Infinity giveaway here’s another little update on our Disney Infinity journey, this time we’re talking about the Disney Infinity Toy Box. Now before I start it is important to know that we’ve only just discovered the tip of the iceberg, the options in the Toy Box are endless and it would take us a very, very, very long time to explore every aspect of it (we may even never reach that point).
The Disney Infinity Toy Box starts with an empty square of terrain, which you have to build into your own Toy Box World piece by piece. From trees to mountains, from buildings to rivers, from ramps to mazes, from characters to vehicles, from night to day, it is all up to you and you can make it as simple or detailed as you like. Obviously we are still learning and our Toy Box World is nothing special compared to the videos I’ve seen online but the kids don’t mind (they’re easily impressed), they have fun playing and we have a great time adding to the design.
The Toy Box comes with a standard selection of items and by playing the games in the Disney Infinity Play Sets you can collect loads and loads more. To ‘earn’ the extra items you don’t need to do anything fancy, they’ll automatically be added to your Toy Box inventory as you play. So the more different Play Sets you get, and the more you play them, the faster your Toy Box will get filled with exciting new components to decorate your very own Toy Box World.
Within the Toy Box you can play any character of which you own the figurine, eg. Captain Jack Sparrow and Sulley (who are both part of Starter Pack) can play together. This ability to mix and match different movies and characters is very cool, imagine Sulley driving in Mr. Incredible’s car (which you’ve ‘earnt’ by playing The Incredibles Play Set) and Captain Jack Sparrow riding Archie the Scare Pig (which you’ve earnt by playing the Monster University Play Set).
If you don’t have the time to create your own Toy Box World or if you just need some inspiration to get started you can count on your fellow Disney Infinity players to help you out in the Disney Infinity Community. You can join the forum, ask questions, send in your own Toy Box creations, check out designs made by others and even download the most popular Toy Box Toy Worlds for you to enjoy!
In my Disney Infinity introduction post I already explained a bit about the Power Discs which are available in either a hexagonal or round shape. The Hexagonal Power Discs are made to fit on the Play Set ‘spot’ on the base and add unique collectibles or design features to your Toy Box, allowing you to create an even more magical environment to explore and play in. There are currently 20 different power discs to collect as part of series 1 and series 2 and 3 are just around the corner.
Before Disney Infinity was released we looked at all the discs available, we had hoped to be able to get our hands on one the Wreck It Ralph Power Discs and were lucky enough to find one of them as part of our Disney Infinity Starter Pack. Our kids absolutely love this movie and when you use this particular Ralph disc you can change the sky of your Toy Box world to represent the Sugar Rush game which looks awesome.
Other Power Disc collectibles/design features include Cinderella’s Coach, Stitch’s Blaster, Rapunzel’s Lantern Sky, Mickey’s Jalopy Car, the Dumbo ride from Walt Disney World and many more. I can’t wait to see what special additions the next two series will bring!
