Yes, Super Toy Club is making a comeback! As from 22 September 2017, always airing at 19:45 on Fridays and Saturdays, the cult show will be presented by Florian Ambrosius, who has been a familiar face on the channel for years (from D.I.E. Detektive im Einsatz (Detectives in Action) and Toggo United). The original version of Super Toy Club was broadcast between 1999 and 2005 and notched up more than 120 episodes. The production company in charge of the modern adaptation is UFA Show & Factual.

Super RTL Managing Director Claude Schmit says: “I’m can’t wait to see the new edition of our cult format Super Toy Club, which many parents will still remember from their own childhood. We firmly believe in the concept and will make sure it’s totally up to date. There are very few entertaining kids’ shows on television today, so we’d like to give the genre fresh impetus.”
