Creation and development
Settings and Areas
The Toy Box consists of two main areas: Andy's House and Galaxy Toys.
Andy's House (アンディの家, Andi no Ie?) is a small, self-contained area where Sora's party arrives in the world, consisting solely of Andy's bedroom where Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and all the other toys normally reside, and the street directly in front of the house. The party can go out one of two windows from the bedroom: one next to the bed which leads to the garage roof, and the other over the desk which leads to the front yard. Once outside, the party can use a trampoline situated in front of the garage to return to the bedroom. Going down either side of the street leads to the next area.
Galaxy Toys (ギャラクシートイズ, Gyarakushī Toizu?) is a three-story toy store where the majority of the world is set. This area is unique in that the party will be attacked by toys possessed by the Heartless, primarily the Gigas mech toys, which can be hijacked by Sora once defeated. Inactive Gigas are also found on display podiums throughout the building to be used at any time.
Directly inside the front doors is the Main Floor: 1F (ホール：1F, Hōru: 1F?, lit. "Hall: 1F"), where access to the upper levels is available via the rails on the giant toy vending machine in the center of the room. The red rail leads to the Main Floor: 2F (ホール：2F, Hōru: 2F?, lit. "Hall: 2F"), which has two open sections: one is called Action Figures (キャラクターグッズコーナー, Kyarakutā Guzzu Kōnā?, lit. "Character Goods Corner"), where they must rescue Rex from possessed Supreme Smashers; and the other is the Rest Area (ドリンクコーナー, Dorinku Kōnā?, lit. "Drink Corner"), where they will find the Strawberry Flan. The blue rail leads to the Main Floor: 3F (ホール：3F, Hōru: 3F?, lit. "Hall: 3F"), as does the green railing, which leads to a small alcove in the ceiling. The third floor has three available sections: Babies & Toddlers: Dolls (ベビートイ:ドールズ, Bebī Toi: Dōruzu?, lit. "Baby Toy: Dolls"), a doll section where the party finds the Green Army Men and Hamm before fighting Angelic Amber; Video Games (テレビゲームコーナー, Terebi Gēmu Kōnā?, lit. "Video Game Corner"), where Sora may play the Verum Rex: Beat of Lead minigame; and a play place called Babies & Toddlers: Outdoors (ベビートイ:アウトドア, Bebī Toi: Autodoa?, lit. "Baby Toy: Outdoor"). From the play place, the party can enter an indoor playground called Kid Korral (キッズスペース, Kizzu Supēsu?, lit. "Kids' Space"), where Sora must reach a Corridor of Darkness left by Young Xehanort by building a giant Cactuar from magnetic blocks, leading to a battle against the King of Toys Heartless.
Alternatively, the second and third floors are connected via the ventilation system, which is made up of the Lower Vents (空調ダクト：下部, Kūchō Dakuto: Kabu?, lit. "Air Conditioning Duct: Lower Part") reached through Action Figures, and the Upper Vents (空調ダクト：上部, Kūchō Dakuto: Jōbu?, lit. "Air Conditioning Duct: Top Part") reached through Babies & Toddlers: Dolls.
Rex and Hamm watch a commercial of Verum Rex where Woody turns it off afterward, Heartless suddenly appear in Andy's room and the toys prepare to attack. At the same time, Sora, Donald, and Goofy arrive in their new forms and they take care of the Heartless. The toys then meet the trio and Rex mistakenly confuses Sora for Yozora from Verum Rex and talks about playing his game. After everyone introduces themselves, Woody explains that it wasn't always lonely and that there were more toys and Andy hasn't come home in ages. Sora, Donald, and Goofy decide to investigate the case and Buzz tells them that a man in a black coat also came with the Heartless. The trio decides to team up with Buzz and Woody to locate the missing toys and a pointer from Sarge leads the gang to Galaxy Toys. Before setting off, Buzz grows skeptical and suggests waiting for Andy, but Woody assures him that they tried waiting and that Sora Donald and Goofy might be of help.
Sora, Donald and Goofy turn into Toys when they visit the Toy Box.
