A new documentary series will focus on vintage toy stores and how they cater to the toy collecting community.
The Nacelle Company, the production house behind The Toys That Made Us, is putting together a documentary series about vintage toy stores, looking at the history of these stores, what they sell, how they keep their shelves stocked with unique items as well as the trials and tribulations of dealing in a niche market.
Given the economic impact that small businesses are facing as a result of the coronavirus and restrictions to limit its impact, the Nacelle Company will donate proceeds from the series to the stores that are featured in it.
“The Nacelle Company has taken a personal interest in the livelihoods of toy dealers across the globe,” Billy Galaxy, Owner of Billy Galaxy Vintage Toys and Collectibles, told Deadline. “This shows the genuineness of the enthusiasm and respect for the topic that made their Toys That Made Us series such a hit. I am honoured to be a part of this show.”
“We wanted to do something that was entertaining, but also helpful for these wonderful stores who have brought so much joy to our lives, and supported our show from the beginning,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of The Nacelle Company.
The series will launch on Amazon Prime Video, Vimeo and YouTube in mid-April.
