The Disney/Pixar movie beat the previous record holder, Shrek 2, to take the top spot.

The renewed popularity of the much-loved franchise also extends to the first two movies, with combined sales of the Blu-ray and DVDs of Toy Story 1 and 2 increasing by more than 600 per cent in July.

Hamleys has also predicted that the Jetpack Buzz Lightyear toy will top its Christmas best-sellers, while most Disney Stores have sold out of the Lotso Bear Plush toy.

The film is now on course to surpass Pirates of the Caribbean 2 (£52.5m) to become the Disney's biggest film of all time in the UK.
