Micro Machines were the must have toy of the late 80’s through to the mid 90’s. Lets take a look back at what made them so great.

Micro Machines – When Did They Come Out?

Micro Machines were made by Galoob, a US toy manufacturer. They first came out in 1987. The advertising for them was slick and featured the fastest speaking man in the world, Jonn Moschitta Jr., telling us as much about how cool they were in the 30 second ad spot it had and it really worked as we all went nuts for them.

Here is just one of the TV adverts that we remember seeing on Saturday morning kids TV ad breaks and after seeing it we nagged our parents from then on to get them for us.
