THE TOYS THAT MADE US (SEASONS 1&2):
If you’re a 70’s, 80’s or even 90’s kid like me, then you know toys were the rage back then. Some of the all-time classic toy lines include, He-Man, G.I. Joe, LEGO, Barbie, Star Wars, Transformers and Hello Kitty. Those were the “it” toy lines to have and collect. Personally, I was big into Transformers and LEGO.
This fantastic series takes you back to the nostalgia of being a kid and being shaped by these shows and toys that preceded them. The show gives a fantastic background from the people in the know about these toy lines and the fascinating stories behind them. From near failures to massive success. It’s a fascinating watch and experience that is suited for everyone, even those that didn’t grow up collecting these toys.
P.S. The story of LEGO is one of the most compelling ones you’ll hear.
