Fantastic. This was so much fun.
23 August 2010 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

I cant' help but love this show. Brought back so many memories of the toys I had growing up. It was just so much fun.

I have to say my favourite show was the house made out of Lego. That was just brill to see a whole life sized house made out of Lego bricks and using construction techniques based on Lego.

Second favourite was the train where they tried to get the longest model train line going and just nearly made it but the train died.... And the Scalextric car setup was fantastic. with the slot car track going down roads and stuff, and across a river.

I'd recommend this show to anyone that wants a fantastic light hearted look at the toys we grew up with.

8/10
