Picture it: you’re coming home from elementary school, your backpack falling off your shoulders as you step through the front door. You turn on the TV to unwind before dinner and push your day of math equations, library visits and recess games to the back of your mind. Just like that, you find yourself immersed in your favourite YTV shows, from the wacky antics on Uh Oh! to the fascinating facts from The Zone.
If there’s one thing you can say about millennials, it’s that they love their nostalgia. Now, an entire generation can revisit their fondest childhood memories by literally wearing their nostalgia. That’s right: Retrokid has teamed up with YTV to launch a throwback merch line, Keep it Weird. With fan favourites like PJ Phil and Tarzan Dan, millennials ensured that The Zone, Camp Cariboo and Uh Oh! were appointment television — and now it’s all about the must-have clothing essentials to match.
