The Toys That Made Us Trailer Will Make You Nostalgic And Excited

by Erik Amaya

Netflix is debuting the first four episodes of the exciting docu-series The Toys That Made Us. And as you can see from the trailer, it will tell the story of toy classics like Barbie and Masters of the Universe, and their impact on our silly little world.

Each episode will focus on a specific brand and the episode regarding Masters of the Universe cannot come soon enough. I’ll admit to one Christmas during my youth when all I cared about was He-Man. My gracious family helped by providing almost nothing but Eternian action heroes with great lats that year.

Hopefully, Netflix will commission a second season so toylines like M.A.S.K. and Robotech can get the spotlight. Which, I guess tells you the other big Christmas wish lists I had as a boy.

The Toys That Made Us debuts tomorrow on Netflix.
