Netflix plans the release of new toys and merchandise that will be based on its hit TV shows. 

"Merchandise will help market hit programs to a wider audience — and generate additional revenue. Netflix has already conducted one test with Hot Topic Inc., which sold T-shirts, mugs, caps, and jewelry tied to sci-fi smash 'Stranger Things.' The company is still in an experimental phase, according to a Netflix spokeswoman.

'We are pursuing consumer products and associated promotion because we believe it will drive meaningful show awareness/buzz with more tangible, curated ways to interact with our most popular content,' Netflix says in the posting. 'We want licensed merchandise to help promote our titles so they become part of the zeitgeist for longer periods of time.'"
