One review said: "This is the cutest Woody and very close to the real thing. I was worried about what other reviewers said about his voice, but it sounds just like Tom hanks to me. He says “you’re my favourite deputy” and “there’s a snake in my boot!” Just like in the movie. He says other things too mostly from Toy Story 3 as if he’s talking to Buzz and I read that if you also buy Buzz they talk to each other. The only phrases he does not say are “reach for the stars “ and “someone poisoned the waterhole.” Also the buttons on his shirt are sewn in so quality there not the greatest but we are overall very happy with the purchase. And the best part is my 3 year old LOVES him. Definitely worth it!"
