The Toys That Made Us
One of the best things most people can remember about childhood are the toys. There were so many to choose from back then, and it seems like they were always the most remarkable things since sliced bread. But not every good thing lasts forever as many of the billion-dollar franchises people were loyal to as children either went out on top or flared out into oblivion. Some of their stories are more exciting than others, but the top dogs’ travels are the ones that are truly worth hearing about in exquisite detail. Thankfully Netflix has the perfect docu-series to illustrate the historical origins and ambitious journeys prominent toy lines have taken in The Toys that Made Us.
Since 2017, The Toys That Made Us has released four enthralling and sentimental installments thoroughly chronicling some of the industry’s biggest and most iconic toy franchises. Some of these next-level action figures and dolls include Barbie, Power Rangers, Hello Kitty, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, LEGO, My Little Pony, Star Wars, G.I. Joe, and more, making this a must-watch experience for Netflix subscribers of all ages. Just don’t be surprised if any iteration heavily influences Netflix subscribers to drop everything and resume playing with their beloved totems of the past, because that is entirely possible given the enlightening circumstances.
