Ahhhh… Those sweet, sweet smells of plastic glory and nostalgia are coming back for another round of Netflix binge-worthy programming. The Toys That Made Us is officially confirmed for a second season!
My heart is so happy.
Making its debut last December on the streaming giant, the short four-episode series that featured childhood relics’ such as G.I. JOE, Star Wars, Barbie, and He-Man/ Masters of the Universe was a Christmas gift beyond expectations for us retro toy geeks. The educational trip down memory lane was glorious indeed, it left people like yours truly over here, drooling for further episodes. While we still have the second-half of season one on the way featuring stories behind LEGO, Transformers, Hello Kitty and Star Trek, (coming within the next few months) the thought of another ringing of the Liberty Bell of Nostalgia with our favorite pieces of plastic playthings, just gives me all the fuzzies. And, thanks to an interview with Den of Geek, brainchild of the series Brian Volk-Weiss speaks on what HE wants to focus on for the anticipated second season.
*Mind you, these aren’t confirmed but if that’s the man in charge, I’d expect to see at least one, or all of these in upcoming episodes!
No release date has been announced as of now, but I’ll only assume another slot around Christmas 2018, might be a good guess. In the meantime, can we get a Rainbow Brite episode, please?
