Netflix and Target are turning your world upside down. Ahead of the release of Stranger Things season 2 later this month, Target and streaming giant Netflix have announced a unique partnership: Target stores will be your one-stop shop for all things strange.
Netflix will bring “epic, exclusive products” inspired by Stranger Things to Target stores, including apparel, toys, and — best of all — Stranger Things season 1 will be available in a retro-inspired Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.
Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack
If you’re old school — or you just like to own physical copies of your media — Target will release Stranger Things season 1 in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack in VHS-inspired packaging. Unlike other Netflix exclusive shows, like Daredevil or Jessica Jones, this Blu-ray can’t be found in most stores — it’s a Target exclusive. The throwback set will be available this Tuesday, October 17.
Starting Sunday, October 15, you’ll be able to pick up your favorite characters in the popular Funko Pop form, including Eleven with Eggos, a Demogorgon, Joyce, Barb, Mike with Walkie Talkie, Hopper with Donut, Dustin and more. Also available on store shelves will be Funko’s old school action figures, with two character packs — one featuring Eleven, Lucas and Mike and the other featuring Dustin, Will and a Demogorgon — available for purchase. The sets aren’t exclusive to Target stores, but if you’re in the market for goods you can’t get anywhere else…
Target Exclusive Apparel And Merch
The retailer will also offer mugs you can find only at Target, with designs paying tribute to the Hawkins Middle School AV Club and dear, departed Barb (Shannon Purser). The Barb love doesn’t stop there: exclusive apparel in men’s and women’s styles features all your favorite characters, with one tee asking, “What would Barb do?” (We’ll never know — she’s dead. Sorry.)
The above designs are just two of the many styles that will be available starting October 15.
Netflix dropped the Stranger Things: Vol 1 soundtrack last October, featuring original music from the show by Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein, but Stranger Things: Music From The Netflix Original Series drops October 27 (the same day you can start your unhealthy binge-watch of Stranger Things season 2). Per Target, the soundtrack is packed with music from the show and includes “80’s gems from The Police and The Bangles to Duran Duran and more.”
