From Transformers to marbles to floppy disks to simple wooden blocks, this stop motion video is a fast-paced two-minute tour of children's toys from the 1980s. Created by Micael Reynaud, a web designer, animator and illustrator who lives in France, and with music by 'Hunting Charlie's Band(e)', the vid includes hundreds of toys and objects.
