So, expect everything original (the toys) but been played in bigger, longer, heavier scale. They are just adult, who finally achieve their childhood dreams playing with their toys eg: build a house from a container of small lego bricks, a 10 mile long train set, a scalextric race cars with real life length of track, creating a garden 100% from plasticine etc. Since their toys are special, one of its kind in the world, most of the episodes are also about making or breaking the record for Guinness World Records.
