Okay so Xboxes and PS3s and smartphones are great. We don't discount their time-stealing brilliance. But, we also can't deny that there's a large part of us that will forever be stuck in the past. The 80s to be specific.

So, we got a bit misty-eyed when watching this new video created by Micaël Reynaud for the aptly named song King of Legoland by Hunting Charlie's Band(e) Samuel Vielliard.

With an uncountable number of frames, Reynaud reminds us of pretty much every toy we ever played with, lost, found, stole or kept for longer than was necessary.

We really can't imagine a contemporary version having half as much character. Here's to living in the past...
