  • Keds for “Double Dare” sneakers;

  • Leeloo Soaps for soap bars including a Slime green bar and Wallaby Wash;

  • Mi Cielo for “Rugrats”-inspired onesies;

  • WattzUp for 3D-molded power charger in the shape of Nick characters.

Additionally, select “Ren & Stimpy” pieces from the fall 2016 Jeremy Scott collection will be available.

Furthermore, the retailer will also highlight five fan-favorite Nickelodeon shows in “clubs” including Homeroom, which features a mash-up of ‘90s characters with brands like State Bags and Out of Print; Besties, which remembers Nick’s iconic duos; Double Dare, which includes prints and patterns from Crshr and Boardies; City Kids, which features “Hey Arnold!”-inspired pieces; and Yearbookers, which features must-have nostalgic picks.

Story will also extend the “Remember When” experience outside of its walls through additional brick-and-mortar and online retail partnerships with Los Angeles-based retailer Ron Robinson, as well as NeimanMarcus.com.

From Aug. 18 to Sept. 18, Ron Robinson will host a Story “Remember When”-themed shop-in-shop in its Santa Monica, Calif., location and will feature an edited selection of the limited edition merchandise.

Meanwhile on NeimanMarcus.com, “Remember When” will be available for a limited time beginning Aug. 24 through Sept. 18.

Finally, Story will also host a number of activations including photo opportunities, physical challenges on the hamster wheel from “Double Dare,” behind-the-scenes interview with many of the creators of Nick’s animated series and happy hours with ‘90s-inspired food, drinks and music.

“Consumer demand for ‘90s Nickelodeon is off the charts and we are excited to introduce an exclusive new line of products based on our most popular shows to celebrate this iconic chapter of our history,” says Pam Kaufman, chief marketing officer and president, consumer products, Nickelodeon. “We think Story is the perfect partner to kick off our new consumer products program and Nickelodeon fans are really going to love it.”
