Sports entertainment company Nitro Circus is teaming up with yet-to-be launched mobile streamer Quibi to create Life-Size Toys, hosted by Nitro Circus co-founder Travis Pastrana.

In Life-Size Toys, Pastrana and the “Nitro crew” will build giant versions of treasured millennial toys. At the end of each episode, the team will attempt a stunt using the custom-made toy — from a toy car taking on a professional rallycross course to an air rocket that can launch a grown man into the sky.

“From the beginning, Nitro Circus has been a group of friends who let their imaginations run wild with the craziest stunts possible, and then have the can-do spirit to make them happen,” Trip Taylor, senior vice president of media for Nitro Circus said in a statement. “Now we are set to deliver our most ridiculous moments yet, and our partnership with Quibi will let us reach fans in an entirely new way.”

Life-Size Toys is produced by Nitro Circus. Taylor and Nitro Circus CEO Andy Edwards are the executive producers for Nitro Circus Media Productions.
