Episode 118 – Brian Volk-Weiss (The Toys That Made Us)

In this episode, we have a great conversation with Brian Volk-Weiss, creator and executive producer of The Toys That Made Us which debuted on Netflix on Dec. 22nd. We chat about why he decided to make this documentary, discoveries he made along the way, and a bit of his own history with toys.


The Toys That Made Us is an eight-part documentary series that will cover eight different toy lines. First four episodes covered Star Wars, Barbie, He-Man and GI Joe.  We had ana amazing time watching the series and learned a ton about these toys that we never knew before. Stay tuned for the last four episodes early 2018!
