The Toys That Made Us Season 3 Plot: What is it about?
The series transports the viewers back to their childhood by featuring some of the best toy lines of the history. Season one of the series featured G.I. Joe, He-Man/ Masters of the Universe, and Star Wars. Season two showcased Hello Kitty, LEGO, Transformers, and Star Trek. The upcoming season 3 of the show is going to feature Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Wrestling, My Little Pony and Power Rangers in their series.
The show doesn’t make the viewers feel negative nostalgia because it has a lack of sentimentality for the toys showcased in the episodes. For instance, He-Man is visually beautiful wonderland full of memories, full of textures and lingering shots of colours that the viewers had forgotten were once there in their lives. The show doesn’t focus on these visual parts but rather shows the interviews with the people who were behind creating He-man. He-Man was nothing more than a day job to these people. They clustered together into an office around all the petty rivalries and annoyance of every office. With the help of a combination of carelessness, luck, and ingenuity, these people created the one and only toy of people’s childhood.
