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 expands on what I consider to be the most unique and influential toy era in history. In-depth look at the creative process, business decisions, culture, and child perspectives. Most importantly, another look at the TOYS that played such a fleeting (but impactful) role in our lives.

Looking forward to additional installments... I can only imagine that Transformers and Care Bears may be on the brink.
