James May's Toy Stories

Has anyone been watching this show? I have seen the one about the life size model Spitfire, the Lego house, the play-do garden, and just finished watching the one on the slot car race.

I think James is he perfect person for this show. He seems to be a kid at heart and shows the ideas the respect they deserve from a kids point of view. I loved building models as a kid. Loved playing with Legos and also had a slot car system. Seeing him build the Lego house was very neat and I loved the idea of the Slot car track over the original Brooklands race track. I like how he gets the locals involved and educates them on the history as well.

I still love the smell of Play-doh
