For nearly a century, preschoolers have enjoyed toys released under the Playskool brand, and chances are you were one of them.

Now, some iconic toys from that line are being reinvented for a new generation of kids beginning next year.

PlayMonster and Hasbro entered into a new deal to create new and reimagined products, including Playskool Weebles, Playskool Glo Friends, Playskool Little Wonders, and The Original MagnaTab. The new deal is the third relaunch from PlayMonster and Hasbro following Spirograph and Koosh.

Glo Friends is “a community of adorable, tiny, glow-in-the-dark bugs” inspired by the classic Glo Worm brand. Little Wonders are sensory playsets made from sustainable wood that feature pops of color, lights, sounds, and music. The Original MagnaTab is a Montessori-learning, sensory-based drawing tablet that uses magnets and a stylus to teach letters, shapes, and numbers in addition to engaging kids’ freedom of expression for open-ended freestyle drawing. Finally, the Weebles are the classic, roly-poly brand with the iconic tagline of “Weebles wobble but they won’t fall down” — character figures with kinetic action that have been around since the 1970s.

While there aren’t any pictures of the new toys just yet, keep an eye on this space! We’ll share more details as soon as we can!
