Collecting Stamps: The Toy Store Guide & Hunting Nostalgia can now stamp your Passport!

With Nacelle’s “The Passport to the Toy Stores of the World”
you can collect stamps when you visit different toy stores.
Now you can add to your Passport if you run into
Hunting Nostalgia or the Toy Store Guide!

While standing outside of a boarded up Toys ‘R Us in New Jersey, Nick Bartley talked about The Nacelle Company’s Passport to the Toy Stores of the World. Recording a segment for the television show Hunting Nostalgia, Nick stood in front of a 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 he had hoped could take him back to when the popular toy store chain was still open.

We have covered The Nacelle Company in the past but for anyone still in the dark… 

The Nacelle Company is known throughout the toy world for their Netflix documentary series “The Toys That Made Us” and for the show “A Toy Store Near You” which highlights family owned toy stores, much like Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives highlights eateries. Currently the show has five seasons and counting on Amazon Prime. 

Recently The Nacelle Company has made waves by rebooting nostalgic toy lines like RoboForce, Sectaurs, and Biker Mice From Mars. With cartoon series for these properties and more on the way! See our coverage of the NacelleVerse HERE!

A few years back The Nacelle Company’s founder and CEO, Brian Volk-Weiss, had the idea of making Toy Store Passports. A book that you can bring to Toy Stores around the globe and collect different stamps. Just like how you get different stamps on your real passport when you visit different countries. Best part is the team at Nacelle will set up a toy store with everything they need to participate, sending them the Passports, the stamp, and store display. It is just another way that they help promote local independent toy stores and do their part to keep them open.

We talked to Volk-Weiss about the passport program. “The same idea is used for National Parks, I thought we should do something like this…” He let us know the program has been very successful. He stated that they have done multiple printings of the book with each printing being double in size to the prior.

Nick Bartley was excited to announce that the Nacelle Company is now including both Hunting Nostalgia and the Toy Store Guide in the passport program!

They have sent us our own stamps… So now whenever you see that toy siffin’ weirdo digging through bins at a toy show he can stamp your passport. Respectively, if you ever see anyone from the Toy Store Guide crew at a toy store, toy show, or event we can also stamp your passport. I have been collecting toy store stamps for a few years now and am personally excited to add the Toy Store Guide stamp to other toy store hunters’ passports and even to the stores I visit. 

“You can take this all across the country and get it stamped, from the different vintage toy stores. It is incredible, it’s your own personal history.”

 – Nick Bartley

You can get your own Passport to the Toy Stores of the World at any participating toy store or directly from Nacelle at (where you can also preorder the new Biker Mice From Mars figures).

A huge thank you to everyone at The Nacelle Company for including us!
