20He loves old toys
James May is well-known for his love of all things toy. And by that, we mean the sort of things you would play with, in Britain at least, when you were a youngster. This includes Mecano, Hornby railways, and Airfix model aircraft kits. This love affair with these childhood memories
lead James to create his ‘James May’s Top Toys' shows and later spawned the rather brilliant ‘James Mays Toy Stories’ series that ran for a few years, arguably some of the best work he has done outside of Top Gear and The Grand Tour. And there were plenty of reasons that they were good as well.
