For anyone with even a passing interest in the history of toy collecting, Netflix show The Toys that Made Us is an absolute must with the catchiest theme tune out there. Now, the first two seasons of the show are collected on a collectors edition blu-ray, out 1st October.
OS ANGELES, CA – The Nacelle Company announced they are releasing a collector’s edition of their acclaimed Netflix docu-series, The Toys That Made Us, that includes over 15 new bonus features and a Toys That Made Us collectible designed by NECA. The Blu-ray will be released on October 1, 2019 and will be available anywhere you buy physical media.
Netflix’s The Toys That Made Us offers a deep nostalgic dive into the minds behind history’s most iconic toy franchises, as they discuss the rise (and sometimes fall) of their billion-dollar creations. The 8-episode documentary series, as it was originally touted, focuses on the history of important toy lines such as Star Wars, Masters of the Universe, Barbie and G.I. Joe, Star Trek, Transformers, Lego, and Hello Kitty.
The Guardian.com called The Toys That Made Us “A show that will make you rethink your childhood,”
Collider.com said The Toys That Made Us season 2 was “Another delightful dip into nostalgia,”
“The first two seasons of Netflix’s The Toys That Made Us gave us a fascinating look at how everything from Lego to Transformers came to be,” said Gizmodo.
“Since the show is targeted towards lovers of pop-culture and nostalgia, it seemed like a no-brainer to offer a collector’s Blu-ray of seasons 1 & 2 and with the help of our friends at NECA, we’ve produced the world’s first Toys That Made Us collectible,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of The Nacelle Company.
