The first wave of Toy Story sets based off the first two movies came in blue packaging with clouds, mimicking the wallpaper seen in Andy’s room in Toy Story. The package design changed to an overall white scheme with the release of Toy Story 3 sets to better visually tie in all the sets together.

Pros: Lots of character, looks fun and plenty of playability. Lots of great pieces in off colors.

For older fans, there's still plenty of possibility here as it includes plenty of interesting pieces and colors.
