I LOVED it! I hope for more as well! I would be extremely surprised if they didnt do a MLP series, especially since its a toy thats still very much alive today (like barbie)
hotwheels sounds really likely as well, and possibly lego, BUT lego already has quite a lot of documentaries so they might pass on that.

But wow I love the history! I was never much of a He-Man fan, but now that I know how it started, I find that so cool!

I've only watched the first two episodes so far but I'm hooked! I really hope they get more seasons. There's so many fascinating stories hidden in the toy industry.

If anyone really loved the Barbie episode, I highly suggest tracking down a copy of Forever Barbie: The Unauthorized Autobiography of a Real Doll. The author was one of the people interviewed so a lot of the same points were brought up but the book goes into a lot more detail. I've wanted an updated version since I read it and I'm so stoked this show came out and covered some of that.

Aside from the obvious MLP choice, I'd love to see them talk about something like Mickey Mouse or Colorforms. Literally only because it would be the perfect excuse to interview Mel Birnkrant, my favorite toy designer.

Me and my family watched this recently and it was amazing! I loved seeing how the toys came about, learning about their designers, etc, but some parts made me either creeped out or mad. In the G.I. Joe episode, the designer that said things like "She is my favorite character because she is sexy" and "I sculpted that so that button was lower" (in this case making the woman toy more revealing) majorly creeped me out, and I think you can guess why. The only parts that made me mad were in the Barbie episode. The first was when one of the ladies was all for destroying companies if it meant Barbie being the only doll like that in the toy aisle. All I could think of was how evil it was to make Barbie and the Rockers before Jem came out! I love Jem, darn it! And all I could think about in the Barbie episode, especially when they were trying to say her proportions were fine because that was the only way clothes would look good, was that girls who played with Barbie have shown they have low body confidence and want to be thinner instead of girls who didn't play with Barbie, who don't really strive to be thinner and are confident in their body. But aside from these details, the overall show was amazing! And I want a pony episode soooo badly!

Mum and me liked these episodes, watching the last one now this one doesn't really relate to us here in the UK, don't think it ever made it big here.

Apparently transformers & lego will be in the second half of this season.

They have also said if they get a second season My little pony is top of their list  :blink: :frolic: really hope they get a second season.

I have seen two episodes and I really love it so far! It's nice to see behind the scenes and hear from the people who were there and made it happen.

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

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

This also really disappointed me.

The next four episodes are apparently  LEGO, Transformers, Hello Kitty, and Star Trek.

Kinda disappointed there is no mention (yet) of MLP, Rainbow Brite or Strawberry Shortcake-  seems like they are doing one "girls line" for every three "boys lines"

I was mad about that too-  but then the narrators (who are quite good) get to the REAL reason why the line failed-
