Audience Reviews for The Toys That Made Us: Season 1

    A very thorough look at the subject matter. Very smart to start with Star Wars as the toys are iconic and the story or its merchandise so interesting. The show does a good job of showcasing the toys, the collectors, and the subject matter the toys were based on. The shows have a tinge of self deprecating humor and are visually interesting. Shows there is always a back story.

    This is a great series that should have already had a season 4 by now.

    (writing for the whole series) A fun documentary that is sure to tap into at least a couple of your childhood's icons and skillfully tell their stories.

    It was very interesting to see these stories of the businesses that brought us all of these wonderful memories. I never knew that Barbie was originally a hooker. The series makes me want to go onto E-bay and buy toys.

    Superb documentary series examining many of the great toy lines, from Transformers to Barbie. The show runners do a great job delving into each story, adding a nice bit of quick wit along with wonderful insight (for example, Barbie & Ken were named after the creator's own children, while the Transformers line were really a mix of different Japanese toy lines). Great watch for any Netflix subscriber, especially for those that actually owned a few of these classic toys.
