In this week's TRN Time Machine segment sponsored by the RetroDaze, Jason and Mickey list their favorite toy commercials from back in the day. Whether it was toys we owned, toys we wanted but never got or just toy store commercials, so many great memories are packed into each of our lists. Plus, our listeners present a glorious list of commercials to add to the conversation. Head over YouTube and watch the TRN Podcast 055 Toy Commercial Playlist to put visuals with the podcast!
