I guess it's possible that you won't be watching any NBA games this year. Maybe you'll be watching your favorite players in some Euro League or catching replays on ESPN Classic. Nonetheless, Bleacher Creatures has released six new 14" tall plush NBA superstars.
The six players are as follows (as pictured): Kobe Bryant (Los Angeles Lakers);LeBron James (Miami Heat); Carmelo Anthony (New York Knicks);Derrick Rose (Chicago Bulls);Rajon Rondo (Boston Celtics);Blake Griffin (Los Angeles Clippers). Each of these Bleacher Creatures can be purchased for $21.99.
The Bleacher Creatures line has expanded to the National Hockey League. Currently they have representatives from six different teams: Philadelphia Flyers, Detroit Red Wings, Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals, Chicago Blackhawks, Boston Bruins.
The players you can pick up are (in order of pictured here): James Van Riemsdyck, Danny Briere, Henrik Zetterberg, Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Alexander Ovechkin, Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, and Tim Thomas. All of these plush figures are available in the 14" tall variety, running $21.99 each.
The folks over at Bleacher Creatures have added on to their plush lines with a series of Wind-Up Toys using the National Football League license. They are available in wind-up up Helmets, Jerseys and Footballs for a number of NFL teams. (The jerseys feature specific player names and numbers on them) Packaged in sets of two of the above mentioned wind-ups, these retail for $11.99 for the pair.
Get ready to have that baseball sized hole in your plush heart filled. Bleacher Creatures is a new company that has introduced three lines of officially licensed Major League Baseball and National Football League plush toys. The 7” plush, 14” plush and 10” puppet plush lines feature some of today's most recognizable sports stars.
For purposes of our review, we received a 7” plush Cliff Lee, 14” plush Chase Utley, and a 10” puppet plush Troy Polamalu.
Bleacher Creatures Manufacturer: Bleacher Creatures Authorized Likeness: Chase Utley, Cliff Lee and Troy Polamalu Material: Plush Designs and Dimensions: 14” Plush; 7” Plush; 10” Puppet
Only the MLB plush characters had a tag attached to them (we received the NFL plush well before the line was released, so I'm assuming that's why it did not have one).
On the front panel, the circular swing tag features an illustrated version of the player, their name and number, and the team logo. Inside, the tag gives you some great information about your player: Name, Number, Date of birth, Hometown, Bats, Throws, Height, Weight, Debut Date.
If you follow the Plastic and Plush Twitter account, you'll get a good deal of sports talk there (predominantly Philadelphia sports talk). I am glad whenever a new sports inspired toy line is released, especially if they are able to get league licenses. Now only does Bleacher Creatures have the Major League Baseball, National Football League, National Hockey League and National Basketball Association licenses, they also have licenses with the Players Associations.
