The Nacelle Co. charts a course for fun in an effort to support independent toy stores while extending the collectible experience.
The studio behind Netflix The toys that made us and cross-platform A toy store near youhas officially launched the Toy Stores of the World Passport program. The news follows the recent opening of the company’s new publishing and toy divisions as it diversifies its offerings and finds new ways to support the toy and entertainment ecosystem.
“People follow the amusement parks they go to, they follow the wineries they go to, why not collect your travel memorabilia from the greatest vintage toy stores on the planet?” says Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of Nacelle Co.
The Toystores of the World Passport is modeled after the National Parks Passport and encourages holders to visit participating toystores to collect unique stamps on their travels. The toy book has your first exclusive look at an intro video for the program featuring actor Todd Bridges (Different shots, everybody hate Chris) on which we fired Blast from the past in Burbank, California.
World Passport toy stores began sowing last fall with activations at conventions and on Social Media when integrating the first series of stores. About 100 stores are already on the program, including Spiral Toys (Japan), Toy de Jour (Illinois), Kokomo Toys (Indiana), Billy Galaxy (Oregon), Wonder Works (South Carolina) and many others.
