Where’s the Fun from? YouTube Series


Where’s the Fun from? is a new video series offering viewers “a look at the playmakers, designers, and inventors who create fun.” Each episode runs between 4 and 8 minutes and traces the historical journey of a popular toy or game from its invention to the present day.

It’s the brainchild of author, documentary filmmaker, and toy industry veteran, Tim Walsh, whose creative and fun storytelling is based on excellent research and peppered with vintage advertising, product shots, and pop culture references.

Gateway episodes of this new series include “Who Invented Good Luck Trolls?”, “Who Invented Big Wheel?” and one of our personal favourites, “Who Invented Mr. Potato Head?

Long live Tony Starch and Darth Tater!
