Some classic toys are about to go big for the short-form content platform, Quibi.

Originally slated to debut in May, Life-Size Toys will premiere July 6 with Nitro Circus ringleader Travis Pastrana playing host as iconic toys are transformed for epic stunts.

“At Nitro Circus, you’re never too old for toys. Tricycles and rocking horses all get pushed to the limit on our tour, but Life-Size Toys definitely raises the game,” says Pastrana. “In this show, we have the chance to take some of our favorite childhood toys, make larger-than-life-versions of them and go for the most insane stunts we can think of. We can’t wait for viewers to see what we’ve dreamed up.”

Pastrana and adrenaline-fueled daredevils at Nitro Circus have cooked-up stunts that involve life-sized versions of toys from Radio Flyer, LEGO, Mattel, and more, including the Stomp Rocket,  a Barbie car, Thomas the Tank Engine, a rubber duck, Toss & Catch, and a Duncan Yo-Yo.

The stunts include an air rocket that can launch a grown man into the sky, a toy car navigating a professional rallycross course, and a high-flying motocross jump above Thomas.
