The Toys That Made Christmas
30 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

These kind of shows for me are a great way to remember my childhood, and when it comes to toys I really like to hear more about how they became so popular, and remind myself of the ones I may have played with, so I watched this with interest. Robert Webb hosts this show that looks back at the most popular toys that were purchased and played with during the Christmas holidays in Britain, and in some cases worldwide, whatever shape or size they come. Things talked about in the programme are toy cars from Matchbox and Scalextric, dolls and action figures (Tiny Tears, Barbie, Sindy, Daisy, Action Man), alternative and simple toys and what it is like and the importance of playing with toys i.e. how they create joy in your childhood and builds you as a person, space based toys (Johnny Astro, Millennium Falcon and other toys from Star Wars), toy guns and military toy vehicles and other war toys and games, balls (tennis, spinning top, football, football table, Subbuteo), construction toys (Meccano), durable plastic toys (Lego), toy crazes (Trolls, Cabbage Patch Dolls, Yoyo, Rubik's Cube), Christmas dinner (turkey and loads of food, crackers, Christmas pudding), television at Christmas (Muffin the Mule, advertising toys, Transformers), Fuzzy Felt, Spirograph, Stylophone, board and parlour games (Monopoly), and the Teddy Bear. With contributions from Coronation Street's Susie Blake, Alfie Boe, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, John Humphrys, Si King and Dave Myers (The Hairy Bikers), Tim Lovejoy, Richard 'Dick' McCourt and Dominic 'Dom' Wood, Deborah Meadan, Sir Sterling Moss, Trevor Nelson, Paddy O'Connell, Arlene Phillips, Mary Quant, Antony Worrall Thompson, Gregg Wallace and Don Warrington. Good!
