Toy Story Land features three new kids' rides:

The Toy Story Parachute Drop, with the RC Racer in the background to the left and the Slinky Dog Spin below and to the right.

The land also features an interactive Toy Soldier Boot Camp (think Jedi Training Academy, but with Andy's plastic soldiers leading the show), a meet-and-greet area with the Toy Story characters and "Cubot," which Disney describes as " a living, spinning block toy with multiple faces and voices."

Spin Cubot's blocks to make a mix-and-match, crazy character like you have never seen before. What would a toy with the head of a Princess, the body of an Astronaut and the feet of a Cowboy look and sound like? If you don't know the answer, then come and ask Cubot! He'll be waiting for you in Andy's backyard and can't wait to play a game with you.

The design is similar to Legoland. Perhaps they stumbled on to something if they know how to exploit it.
