PLYMOUTH MEETING, Penn. – August 3, 2011 – Do you have young
football fans in your family? Now they can play with their favorite

Football League Bleacher Creatures toys.
Officially licensed by NFL Properties LLC and NFL PLAYERS, the licensing and
marketing arm of the NFL Players Association, each Bleacher Creature plush character
is dressed in his team uniform.
“Now children can hang out with football stars such as Tony Romo, Adrian Peterson
and Drew Brees whenever they want,” said Matthew Hoffman of Bleacher Creatures. “Our
lineup of NFL player plush characters and hand puppets turn your favorite players
into your kids’ favorite toys, encouraging fun, inspiration and play.”
“This is a great gift for kids,” Hoffman said. “It turns some of the superstars of
the game into household favorites for young football fans.”

“We are excited about the opportunity to connect the popularity of sports to the
children’s toy market”, Hoffman said. “We look forward to creating more great
football characters as well as popular players from other sports.”

veteran who was formerly an executive with GSI Commerce and Majestic Athletic. When
his young children turned out to be sports fans, Hoffman realized that there was an

watching their favorite teams and players in action.
Hoffman created a line of cartoonish yet fully recognizable versions of today’s
biggest sports stars so kids can connect to their favorite teams and players with
