All Those Wonderful Toys (Well, Their Commercials)

Perhaps it's a longing for simpler times - or maybe it's that I wasn't raised in the US and so missed out on these the first time around - but I've become obsessed with old-school television commercials for toys recently: Transformers! He-Man! Super Powers! Each one was sold separately, but seemed to promise so much happiness, it's almost painful to watch.
