Toys are a concept that will never go out of style and toy brands, especially the major long-runners that have been around for years or decades, will always be in the hearts of many grown-ups. This has been the concept of The Toys that Made Us, a miniseries on Netflix.
Created by Brian Volk-Weiss, the documentary show presents in-depth histories of some of the most iconic toy brands and lines in recent (20th Century) history. Running eight episodes total, The Toys That Made Us has already put the first four on Netflix, featuring Star Wars, He-Man, Barbie and G.I. Joe.
While a specific date for the availability of episodes 5-8 of The Toys That Made Us is yet to be announced, what is known is that the latter four documentaries will focus on LEGO, Transformers, Hello Kitty, and Star Trek. Yep, LEGO might be on for the show’s episode 5.
According to the streaming series’ official Facebook page, viewers might have to wait until about four months before The Toys That Made Us resumes with the remaining episodes. Some of the preview photos for the LEGO episode have been noted by The Brick Fan to be apparently taken from Bricks LA.
No further information about what other information or locations will be touched upon in the LEGO episode of The Toys That Made Us, but the possibility of a visit to LEGO HQ in Billund, Denmark or even one of the LEGOLAND Parks is not that remote. We’ll have to wait.
