Some Assembly Required


Now on Netflix.

When 14-year-old Jarvis Raines’ house is nearly destroyed by a defective toy, he sues the company and ends up owning it.


Kolton Stewart plays 14-year-old Jarvis Raines, an average teenager who becomes a boss overnight after he sues a toy company over a defective chemistry set that blows up his house. Kolton played Young Simba in the North American tour of Lion King, as well as appearances in TV and movies (I Declare War, The Next Step). Jarvis’s first act as CEO of Knickknack Toys is to recruit a diverse group of kids from his high school to help him run the company. His first hire is computer-savvy “hacker chick,” Piper Gray, played by singer/songwriter Charlie Storwick (winner of YTV’s The Next Star, Season 4).

Rounding out the cast is Jarvis’s best friend, Bowie, an engineering wiz played by Harrison Houde (Diary of a Wimpy Kid); Sydney Scotia (The Letter) playing the gorgeous personal assistant Geneva; Knox, an extreme sports daredevil played by Dylan Playfair (Mr. Hockey: the Gordie Howe Story), and Aster, the most fashionable guy in school, played by Travis Turner (Marley & Me: The Puppy Years).

Running a toy company is going to take more than one kid, it’s going to take all six kids. And while this group would not normally be friends, they must work together and get to know each other better as they run the world’s first teen-owned game company. The series can be seen on YTV, and is now streaming on Netflix.
