Bleacher Creatures believes in the bond between fans and their heroes—and wants to make it real.
Bleacher Creatures are uniquely true-to-life plush figures that turn the greatest athletes and entertainment icons into characters, even friends, whom you can hang out with anytime, anywhere. The prime goal: to encourage fun, inspiration and, of course, play among fans of any age.
Where did this cool idea come from? Bleacher Creatures Founder Matthew Hoffman is not only a sports fanatic, he’s also a father of three. As Matthew traveled the country during his 15-year career in sports licensing, he was always on the lookout for new and unique sports toys for his children. Frustrated by the lack of options, inspired by the types of toys his kids enjoyed playing with, and grasping that children have a connection with their favorite pro players, the light bulb went on: Turn the athletes into plush, cuddly characters!
Five years later, an elite roster of athletes across five professional sports have been transformed into Bleacher Creatures plush figures. Bleacher Creatures are proud to be official partners of Major League Baseball, Major League Baseball Players Association, National Football League, National Football League Players Association, National Basketball Association, National Hockey League, National Hockey League Players Association, and Major League Soccer. In addition, Bleacher Creatures also boasts partnerships with WWE and Nascar!
Brand-new additions to the Bleacher Creatures universe take inspiration from the movies, TV, and comic books, as the brand is also official partners with Marvel and DC Comics!
