OYO Sports has created sports figures that are buildable, playable and they look just like LEGO figures. I’m probably not allowed to say it but I am because it’s true. (I’m sure I’m supposed to say comparable to the leading building-block brand, but we all know who they are so I’m just going to say it like I did) We received the following sets and this is what my kids did with it:
- Seattle Mariners Robinson Cano Limited Edition Minifigure
- Seattle Mariners Kendrys Morales Limited Edition Minifigure
- Seattle Mariners Starter Practice Field Set
- Seattle Seahawks Kam Chancellor Limited Edition Minifigure
- Seattle Seahawks Marshawn Lynch Limited Edition Minifigure
Each character had to be put together and since we received a mix of Football players and Baseball players my kids turned the Seattle Seahawks into Baseball players and the Seattle Mariners into Football players. It was really cute and they played with them for hours. They had the guys running around the bases and I think they even made up their own game.
OYO Sportstoys make these figures and playsets for Football Hockey and Baseball. We’re huge baseball and football fans and were super excited when these showed up. The kids had to open them up
The Story of OYO Sportstoys!
It all started at the ballpark. Shortly after building an elaborate starship from a popular building-block brand, a father took his son to Fenway Park to take in a Red Sox game. Taking in the sights and sounds of the park, a true New England rite of passage, the duo would begin exploring the confines of the park in search of toys. As their searches went without results, an idea was born: Creating mini-figures of athletes that kids could play baseball with.
Developing figures with rotating forearms, bending knees, and complete with the equipment of a true ballplayer — a ball, bat, and glove — the dynamics of the project were born. After many late nights of extensive patent work and distribution strategies, OYO obtained licenses with Major League Baseball and the MLB Player’s Association as its first professional sport.
But an OYO goes beyond a figure capable of poses previously impossible for building-block minifigures. The OYO packaging was intricately designed to be able to fit in a kid’s pocket while looking like both a toy and 3-D baseball card. Following many colors, concepts, and logos, the final OYO package was complete and the rest is history in the making!
They really did a great job and I can see us collecting more of them because we like having the Seattle Mariners and Seattle Seahawks minifigures to play with.
