Like every other kid on Earth, we loved toys growing up, so Netflix’s The Toys That Made Us was, well, made for us. The series covers the biggest toy franchises of the past 100 years, and to supplement we’ve provided insight on a few of our own favorite toys. Then, we take a wee trip over to Derry, Northern Ireland and watch Derry Girls, a comedy about high school girls growing up in The Troubles.
