Brian Volk-Weiss brings us Season 3 of ‘A Toy Store Near You’ and a New Disney+ Series with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

One of the most fun people I ever get a chance to speak with is Brian Volk-Weiss, the man who has more plastic and resin in his home office than a recycling plant. It’s not an insult, you need to see this guy’s toy collection!

What would you expect when you talk to the guy who created the series, The Toys That Made Us?

Volk-Weiss has returned with the third season of, A Toy Store Near You, streaming on Amazon Prime and this time, as he puts it himself, is far more uplifting than season one where he primarily focused on dealing with the world falling apart.

On top of all that, he has created a new series with the most electrifying man in sports entertainment and the owner of the relaunched XFL, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on Disney+ entitled, Behind the Attractions. The series is quite similar to The Wonderful World of Disney from the 1950s where Walt Disney himself would show us the behind the scenes making of Disneyland, that he got ABC to pay for in the process.

A Toy Store Near You, is now streaming on Amazon Prime.

Official Press Release:

LOS ANGELES, CA – The Nacelle Company, the people behind Netflix’s The Movies That Made Us, The Toys That Made Us, Disney+’s Behind The Attraction, and Down To Earth with Zac Efron have announced that season 3 of A Toy Store Near You will premiere on June 23, 2021.

The series takes us across the world to visit some of our favorite toy stores and meet the incredible small business owners that keep the vintage toy community running.

“Hard work, resiliency and passion are terms forever synonymous with the toy industry because of the wonderful people who help the industry thrive. We’ve truly loved making this series, and we’re excited to hear what everybody thinks of season 3,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, Founder and CEO of The Nacelle Company.

Season 301 – Jayden’s Toys – Frisco, Texas

They say everything is bigger in Texas, and it goes without saying that also applies to the personality and perseverance of Jayden’s Toys owner, Jayden Frost. When he’s not entertaining fans with his George Michael cover-band, Freedom, or being a superhero dad to his daughter, Emmy, Jayden is constantly striving to provide an incredible toy store experience.

Season 302 – S.M.A.S.H. Toys – Chicago, Illinois

In 2016, Chicago-native Jonathan Schoonveld found himself at a professional crossroads. A former ad-man inspired by the Cubs World Series win (and realizing his neighborhood Edison Park was in need of a toy shop) he decided to use his nest-egg to open S.M.A.S.H. Toys. Located just a quick 15 mins from O’Hare International Airport, attracting curious customers from all over the world, S.M.A.S.H. Toys is living proof of one man’s passion and determination.

Season 303 – de ToyBoys – TB Haarlem, Netherlands

Nestled above a charming neighborhood in the North Holland city of Haarlem you’ll find de Toyboys; an aptly named toy store owned and operated by age-old friends Pieter and Michel. Tracing the store’s origins back to Pieter’s workplace desk toys and Michel’s web-design savvy, they soon realized their destiny as purveyors of pop-culture gold. The next time you take a whole vacation to the Netherlands, make sure to visit de Toyboys!

Season 304 – Toy Fusion – Sacramento, California

For over 20 years, Andrew Leung has made Toy Fusion a cornerstone of the toys & collectibles scene in Sacramento, CA! The namesake of Andrew’s store isn’t simply a Dragon Ball homage, it’s a business model, fusing the items for sale in his store with toy art from local artists, movie and wrestling props and even aerospace collaborations with a local private space company! Any visit to Toy Fusion is an experience worth treasuring!

Season 305 – WonderWorks – Charleston, South Carolina

Christine Osborne and co-owner Dan Morrisey opened the doors to the very first Wonder Works on August 10, 1990. Their mission was to create a toy store aimed squarely at kids, one that inspired the magic and wonder of fun. Two generations in, Wonderworks is still a place where children can play, grow, and experience the wonder of a new toy sparking creativity and joy.

The first two seasons featured episodes from stores across the world, including Billy Galaxy Toys and Collectibles in Portland, Oregon. Spiral Toys in Shibuya City, Japan, Leicester Vintage and Old Toy Shop in Leicester, England, 1313 Mockingbird Lane in Lawrence, Kansas and Cherry Bomb Toys in Victoria, British Columbia, Kokomo Toys in Kokomo, Indiana, Farpoint Toys in Mays Landing, New Jersey, Super7 in San Francisco, California, Bric-A-Brac Records in Chicago, Illinois and Batcave Comics and Collectibles in Santa Rosa, California.

A Toy Store Near You is sponsored by eBay, Death Wish Coffee, Super7 and Tribeca Film Festival. The complete first and second seasons are available to watch on Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, YouTube, Vimeo and more. A majority of the proceeds from the show will go back to each store that is featured.
