The new Polaroid Stranger Things Edition offers the perfect reminder to capture those one-off moments, turning memories into something you can hold, something to share with your friends, something real, no matter which way up your world is. Polaroid Originals is also releasing collectable special edition film, perfect for super fans to capture their stranger moments.
As a further ode to the Stranger Things universe, each pack of 8 will include 16 graphic design prints, which will transport you back to the summer of 1985 in Hawkins, discovering Scoops Ahoy at the town’s new Starcourt Mall and back to the flashing lights of Joyce Byer’s living room.
Stranger Things is renowned for re-imagining the early 80s and is infused with popular culture from the period, from walkie-talkies and Fabergé Organic big hair to Dungeons and Dragons. Retro Polaroid cameras pop up throughout the series, capturing moments from the Hawkins Middle School’s Snow Ball to the gang’s iconic Ghostbuster Halloween costumes. After all, what would the 80s be without a Polaroid snap?
Polaroid Stranger Things Camera
The new camera, like the range of Originals, is optimised for today with a fixed-focus lens, a powerful built-in flash, easy USB charging, and a self-timer. The battery lasts up to 60 days, and the high-quality lens guarantees a sharp image from as close as 2 feet to infinity – perfect for selfies. The camera works with a new generation of Polaroid Originals i-Type and 600 instant films.
The Polaroid Originals range is a quirky flashback to times long since gone, but it seems to have struck a chord with the public, and the range is find a home. Tie-ups with movie and TV launches will certainly continue to keep this cool little camera in the limelight.
Season Three of Stranger Things premieres on the 4th July 2019 on Netflix and will see the story continue in Hawkins in the summer of 1985 where things are heating up. But it’s not just the sun, fireworks or summer romances – there’s something below the surface for the teenage group that feels different than before – very different.

I love tech things, especially the way they infiltrate our lives without us even realising. I don’t like having to explain how a gadget works to every member of my family though!
