The Toys That Made Us, an 8-part documentary exploring toy lines of the 1980s is coming to Netflix in 2018. If you grew up in the 80s, it’s easy to understand why the toys we played with are still so loved today. We had the original Star Wars toys, He-Man, Transformers, GI Joe, slime and guts gross-out toys like the Madballs and Mad Scientist, Boglins, My Pet Monster, and so many more. They were creative and innovative, there had been nothing quite like them before, and have no doubt inspired everything that has come since.
We have a while to wait, as the series is still in production, but in the meantime you can find some fun facts about your favorite toys on their Facebook page, like this one:
