We all know that Woody and the other Toy Story toys can move and walk, but they usually do it when no humans are around to see. Kids can finally see the toys moving around with their own two eyes with Disney‘s new Toy Story Marionettes.

A marionette is a puppet that you can control using strings or wires that are attached to the character. The Toy Story Marionettes are available in Woody, Jessie, and Bullseye. Recommended for kids ages 5 and up, each marionette comes in “Budtone TV” packaging and black-and-white styles inspired by the cowboy-themed TV series that Woody starred in before he became famous enough to get made into a toy in the Disney and Pixar film. That toy eventually found its way to Andy and the rest is history.

The marionettes have strings attached to the heads and bodies that kids can move around using the control bar on top to make them walk, run, play, and act out scenes. The Woody marionette comes with Crazy Critters tortoise and beaver figures, while the Jessie marionette comes with beaver and deer figures.

The Toy Story Marionettes are available on for $49.99 each.
