Episode 40: Toys of the ’80s and ’90s

Teddy Ruxpin and USS Flagg

Andrew Wollman (Doctor Who Live!) returns to talk with Jen about their favorite toys from the 1980s and early 1990s. From Centurions to Lite-Brite to Skip-It, some of these old favorites have been forgotten, some have been updated for today’s kids, and some, in retrospect, were maybe just invented for parents to tire their children out. Plus, Andrew reveals how he cleverly “supplemented” his allowance, and Jen realizes the stories she played out with her toys were not exactly normal.
