It should be no surprise, that the toy industry would try to bring the world’s favorite characters alive in the form of toys that allow us to keep our “heroes” on a shelf or alive on the living room floor under a tent made out of a bed sheet, or sofa cushions made to be walls of a fort.

How Movie Toys Changed the Toy Industry Forever

It all began in 1977 with a movie called Star Wars.

George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars, saw an opportunity not only to market a new type of movie, but also to market toys directly based on his story. It was a very controversial and brilliant idea.

They can really challenge the brain and teach anyone the basics of mechanical parts, all the while keeping our imaginations running on overdrive.
