James May's Toy Stories
20 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I knew instantly I would like this TV series, not just because of Top Gear presenter James May, but because it would remind of my childhood in some cases, and to see impressive toy constructions and creations. The idea was to prove that old toys were still good for something, and the premise of the programme each episode was to explore the impact the toy had in the old days, the significance in the modern world, and super-size them to show their true potential. There was a life-size Airfix model World War II Spit Fire, an award-winning garden entered into the Chelsea Flower Show made entirely of Plastercine, a life-size Meccano bridge, a Guinness World Record breaking Scalextric track set on the old Brooklands race circuit/track (the first in the world), a record-breaking Hornby train track from Barnstaple to Bideford, and a life-size Lego house in Dorking, Surrey. In the show, you could look out for David Bellamy, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley, Dame Helen Mirren, Sir Trevor McDonald, Phillip Schofield and Alan Titchmarsh. Very good!
