Netflix series: Toys That Made Us
« on: December 28, 2017, 03:55:22 AM »
I saw this on Netflix today and I have to say is wow!

As the title says they go way back on toys we grew up with, this show is really entertaining and informitive! Only being 4 episodes in I really hope they do more! Has anyone seen this yet?

I don't want to give away too much just in case of spoilers.

I watched all 4 episodes yesterday, I can't wait for more! It's incredibly interesting to hear how some of these iconic toy lines were created. I'm hoping there will be a pony episode, there's a glimpse of G1 flutter ponies in the cartoon intro. ^.^

I've watched all but the last one, trying to wait till there's more. It's fantastic with so much nostalgia and fascinating.

I know right! :D
I was really hoping for that myself, seeing that they go waaay back to the early 60s-70s!

Yes we have been enjoying it.  Though it has to be paused every ten minutes to go on another ramble!  ;)

I binged all 4 episodes and loved it!  I was bummed that it was only 4 episodes, but if you listen to the words in the opening theme song it says its an '8 episode docuseries' so I'm hopeful for a MLP episode when they release the next 4 episodes.

I'm also hoping for a pony episode since we saw them in the toy store in the opening animation. :) and a Jem episode.

I've had to stop numerous times each episode to track down information. These are stories I've never heard of and I love making of/behind the scenes documentaries. Ideas for more episodes:
MLP (of course)
Hot Wheels
Board Games
Video Games
Disney

It was fun to watch! I watched it on christmas eve with my mom while waiting form dad to return. MY mother was a teen in the 80's, but I knew a lot more about He-man than she did  :lol: She did tell me about the star wars and gi joe toys she and her step-siblings had growing up though, so it was really interesting.

I would have liked to see them talk about the japanese barbies (unless I was just in the bathroom for that part :lol:) and since MLP was mentioned a few times, I hope they do an episode on it. I followed the show on facebook before it hit netflix, they share collector photos which is really cool!

I haven’t seen this show, but now I have to watch it. It’s cold outside, so sounds like the time to culr up with Netflix...
Hey! Maybe for an mlp episode, they feature some of the arena and trading post members in interviews! In addition to history on ponies of course.

I found this, if its true no mlp episode. Maybe they will do a season 2?


According to their Facebook Fanpage a new 8-episode Netflix series is coming soon. They have shared a picture of their season planning board that let us know the toylines that will star each episode: Star Wars, G.I Joe, Barbie, He-Man, Star Trek, Hello Kitty, Lego and Transformers, of course.
No words on the release date yet, but you can click on the title bar to check out the images and share your thoughts on the 2005 boards

This series is fabulous! I really enjoyed the episodes on Barbie, Star Wars and He-Man / She-Ra.
