Storyline

Toys can be more than simply children's playthings, the biggest ones can say so much about popular culture and the generations raised in it. This series covers the history of the major toylines of the post-World War II generations, the media franchises they represented, and how they reflected their times and how they changed with them. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Nostalgia can last a lifetime

12/29/17. Maybe 3 1/2 stars! An enjoyable look at how much strategic planning goes into creating a successful toy franchises! Many times we only link toys to our childhood, but the memories of childhood can last a long time when it is associated with a toy we loved! Worth catching. A fun watch!
