A daily look back at the toys, games, and objects that captured our attention as children and continue to fascinate us today.


The 5MadMovieMakers YouTube channel showcases short videos of inventive toy car- and rail-tracks. The featured race and railway courses are built using LEGO, marbles, toy cars, and the occasional household object.

5MadMovieMakers have shared their creations on YouTube since 2010, allowing viewers to participate in the joy (and sometimes heartbreak) of creating toy tracks that zoom through backyards, beaches, and everywhere in between. From straightforward set-ups to complex configurations full of twists, turns, and ambitious loops, the videos are a joyride. Each one evokes the childhood thrill of building the perfect track and the anticipation that accompanies the pursuit. The filmmakers use close-up shots and driver’s-eye view camera angles to magnify the excitement of the ride.

5MadMovieMakers is a fun, family-friendly channel. It brings back memories of hours spent painstakingly assembling, testing, and reconfiguring race tracks for maximum thrills.
