The Pop Insider and The Toy Book have your exclusive first look at the trailer for season 6!

We all love our collectibles, but behind every piece on the shelf lies a story of how it got there.

One key piece of each collectible’s journey is the store from which it was purchased, and since 2020, Nacelle — the studio behind The Toys That Made Us and The Movies That Made Us (Netflix), Behind The Attraction (Disney+), and Icons Unearthed (Vice TV, Amazon Prime Video) has been shining a light on the brick and mortar retailers that foster community among toy collectors.

Today, The Pop Insider and The Toy Book have your exclusive first look at the trailer for A Toy Store Near You Season 6, debuting Christmas Eve on Amazon Prime Video. Check it out!

“As we enter our sixth season, the show seems to be picking up momentum, which is amazing for a show that’s been on this long! From day one, It’s a dream come true to be able to help shine a spotlight on these small businesses that are so important to our communities.”

– Brian Volk-Weiss, Nacelle Founder & CEO

This season features the following stores:

Additionally, this season features appearances from YouTubers and social media personalities including Pixel Dan, Larry Bundy Jr., Andre Meadows, Shartimus Prime, Dan Larson of Toy Galaxy, Zombie Sailor Toys, and more.

Looking ahead, Nacelle continues ramping up The Nacelleverse, an interconnected realm of toys, publishing, and entertainment. The company plans to reveal more news related to the project when it hosts a panel at LA Comic Con this weekend. The Nacelleverse includes Robo Force, Sectaurs, Biker Mice from Mars, Power Lords, and other cult classic brands that have been reimagined for future generations.
