The Toys That Made Us: Why You Should Watch It

Season 1 promo.

It’s the 12 part documentary series… about the toys that we all know. Plastic creations, that last for generations, and we still cannot let goooo

Little molded figures that gave us big dreams, we’ll go back in time and behind the scenes!

This series is incredible. It came out in December of 2017, and has had 2 more seasons since then. Yeah, I know I’m late to the party, but if you’ve already watched the first two seasons, the third has JUST come out! This time, the toys of honour are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers, My Little Pony, and Wrestling Toys.

Season 3.

Why I love this show

The Toys That Made Us has not only taught me lots of stuff I previously did not know about certain toy lines, but also gave me an appreciation of the work that the creators put into the toys. The interviews are meaningful as well as hilarious, and the editing is on point. I hope that in the future they’ll do an episode on Furby or Care Bears, as those are two toys lines near and dear to my heart.

Thank you all for reading, and I’ll catch you next time!
