Bleacher Creatures™ was founded by Matthew Hoffman, a sports licensing industry 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 opportunity in the $20+ billion dollar US toy market to engage kids who love 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 imaginative play.
Bleacher Creatures is licensed with all the major US sports leagues and their players.
