80s babies rejoice, because this video by Micaël Reynaud is most certainly for you. If you are among the many that miss when Saturday morning cartoons were an institution and Hot Wheels and Transformers were the most coveted items around, then sit back and get ready to soak in some blissful nostalgia. Prepare to be amazed by this fast-pace version of show and tell, displaying a more-than-stellar 80s toy collection.

The video is aptly titled The King of Legoland, which is also the name of the song that serves as the video's soundtrack. The song itself is by Hunting Charlie's Band(e), and it's the perfect melody for this sweet trip down memory lane. There are LEGOs galore, a fine collection of marbles and enough NES paraphernalia to keep you busy until the end of days. The names of other featured toys escapes my memory, but I sure remember stepping on them.

While this video was a little boy-centric (Jem and those delightful Holograms were grossly underrepresented) there is an ample amount of material for any product of the 80s to relate to, miss and remember.
