Netflix The Toys That Made Us

The Toys That Made Us is an episodic documentary series on Netflix about some of the legendary toys from our past.  If you are a toy fan, I highly recommend it!

Episode 1 - Star Wars: This episode was fantastic, and I learned a few things I didn't know about the original Star Wars toy line history. Definitely my favorite episode, even though I am not a big Star Wars toy collector, I do love Star Wars.

Episode 2 - Barbie: This episode was very interesting, even though I am not a Barbie fan.  WARNING: some of the subject matter in this episode is not appropriate for children.

Episode 3 - He-Man: Pretty good episode. Fair warning, a few F-bombs are dropped here.

Episode 4 - G.I. Joe: Can't go wrong with G.I. Joe, I enjoyed this episode

There will be 8 episodes in all.  As of now, only the first 4 episodes are available.

Have you seen the series yet?  What did you think?  Do you have a favorite episode?  What toys made you?


  1. I wonder if they consulted the National Toy Hall of Fame.

    1. I think there's a good chance they did!

      Did "stick" make it into the hall of fame one year?

    2. Found it! LOL! http://www.toyhalloffame.org/toys/stick
