The show features curious do-it-yourselfer Rusty, who is both a designer and a maker. In every episode, Rusty and his friends are faced with a challenge. Using key elements from his trial and error inventions, Rusty and his team assemble the build to help achieve their goal and save the day.

The toy line will be supported throughout Autumn/Winter 2018, and will receive PR and digital support.

Nella the Princess Knight

Eight-year-old princess Nella loves all the royal glitz and glamour that comes with her tiara. The big difference, however, is that she's also a knight that loves jousting, daring quests and going on adventures in Castlehaven.
