Without a doubt this is The Blot’s favorite time of year…the start of football season! Since we’re just a week away from kickoff of the NFL’s 2012-2013 regular season, I wanted to get everyone into the mood for football by featuring a cute new line of NFL figures entitled TeenyMates. Created by Party Animal Toys, TeenyMates are 1” tall officially licensed NFL figures sold blind bag style in the same manner as LEGO’s immensely pop mini figure series. The Blot’s a big fan of Party Animal Toys’ popular line of 3” Lil’ Teammates (I’ve got a Texas Longhorns Lil’ Teammates running back on my desk at work), and I'm excited to check out this new NFL mini figure toy line.
NFL TeenyMates are great for kids (ages 4 and up) and collectors alike, and actually feature some amazing details for such tiny figures. Each foil bag pack comes with 2 random quarterbacks and 2 puzzle pieces. Once you’ve collected all 35 double-sided puzzle pieces they combine to form a puzzle that allows you to build a collector mini-poster featuring all 32 QBs on one side and a football field display set on the other. There are 32 quarterbacks in the NFL TeenyMates, 1 for each team in the league, plus 3 hard-to-find rare chases: a Throwback QB, a Metallic Gold QB, and a Glow-in-the Dark QB!
Now available at Target, team shops, and sporting goods, gift and toy stores across the nation, NFL TeenyMates can be purchased for just $3.99 per blind bag. These fun little toys are also available through Amazon as a four bag bundle (that’s 8 figures in all) for $19.95 here. Look for additional TeenyMates leagues to be released soon!
