An inventive cricket and a big-hearted slug who cover songs made famous by The Beatles? It's real—and pretty amazing. Netflix's Beat BugsTM reimagines Beatles classics for a new generation—and teaches some life lessons along the way. Now we're turning up the beat on the popular animated kids’ show with an exclusive line of Beat Bugs gear, only at Target.

Each episode of the Emmy-award-winning series, created by Josh Wakely especially for young children, follows a cast of cute creatures through a journey inspired by a single song made famous by The Beatles. Along the way, kids learn about getting by with a little help from their friends, finding confidence and more.

And the music? Oh, the music. We'd love to be a fly on the wall as stars like The Shins, Eddie Vedder, Sia and P!nk record fab four faves like “The Word,” “Magical Mystery Tour,” “Blackbird” and “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” Alas, no impromptu concerts here at Target HQ, but we were pretty psyched for the chance to bring the show to life in another way—by creating an exclusive line of merchandise, from toys, games and electronics to apparel, bedding, back-to-school gear, DVDs and more—just for our Target guests.

Check out just a few of our favorite bug-inspired toys, debuting this weekend! And keep watching Target and Target.com for even more exclusive Beat Bugs gear!
