It’s time to pick up your toys.

You know – Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, Bullseye, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, Rex, Hamm … They’re all back in Disney-Pixar’s “Toy Story 3,” and this time it’s in 3-D.

For fans of the original and it’s just-as-good first sequel, there’s a lot to take in: fantasy action sequences that are more over-the-top than ever, new toys and – gasp! – character development. Some have moved on and others have grown as, well, people. That’s the magic of these movies: It’s not just flashy special effects that conjure up the playthings of a bygone era for many of us. They’re portrayed as the playmates we knew and loved as kids, rather than the mere inanimate objects the jaded adult eye invariably sees.

And many viewers — young and old — will find themselves getting a little choked up by the time the credits roll. (Don’t skip the credits, by the way – they continue the story with epilogue vignettes that are as amusing as the movie itself.)

For latecomers to the world of Andy and his toys: You won’t be burdened with too much baggage, and you’ll want to see the first two installments ASAP (but you can skip the traditionally and badly animated sideshow “Buzz Lightyear of Star Command”).

“Toy Story 3” clocks in at 103 minutes and is rated G.

Grade: B+
