James May’s Toy Stories

James May, from Top Gear, has a BBC show where he revisits classic toys from our youths, and tries to do something amazing with them (with a lot of money, and a lot of help). He’s done a playdo garden, a erector set bridge, and I just watched him build a lego house. The money must be immense, but he harnesses the good will and help of so many people, architects, engineers, and designers, but also just plain ole people to do all the legwork. It’s pretty fantastic. It’s a BBC show, so you can’t really get it except nefariously, but if you can, or if it ever comes to BBC America, watch it. I just had a smile plastered on my face for a solid hour and it’s still there.
