The Toys That Made Us: The Review!

I'm on like day 5 of Christmas vacation and the kids are starting to drive me crazy. Hats off to all you stay at home parents.

This afternoon while the kids decided to take a break from trying to kill each other (or me) I watched a couple episodes of Netflix's new documentary series The Toys That Made Us. As the title would lead you to believe it's all about toys. There's only a handful of episodes each devoted to an iconic toyline: Star Wars, He-Man, Barbie and GI Joe. I caught the GI Joe and Star Wars episodes. It had a lot of good info and was infotaining enough for me to plan on watching the next couple episodes.

The series is not without it's flaws, the historical recreations are kind of silly looking and the humor the writers try to interject through the narrator is not ideal. Still, I felt like I learned a bunch about toys that I didn't know, so mission accomplished.

On the GI Joe scale it wasn't quite a Snake-Eyes but it wasn't a Refrigerator Perry either. It's a solid Flint.
