As the 2013 MLB World Series is set to begin tomorrow, the folks at OYO Sportstoys have teamed with my friends at Sports Illustrated Kids for a special video that animates some of the best moments from the 2013 ALCS & NLCS into brick and minifigure form. Yes, bricks and minifigures… OYO makes sports-themed minifigures that could be considered the distant cousins of similar brands like MEGA Bloks and LEGO. Honestly, I wasn’t aware of them until today, but now I have my eye on a few. Check out the toy versions of the BOSTON RED SOX and ST. LOUIS CARDINALS rockin’ the bases below…
Sports Illustrated Kids is the magazine for girls and boys who love sports! Sports are presented to kids the way they want to read about them—with great action photos, easy-to-read stories about star athletes, helpful instructional tips from the pros, and humor, comics, and activities. As a bonus, each issue comes with a two-sided pull-out poster of two superstar athletes plus nine sports cards. Sports Illustrated Kids is a great way to encourage kids to read. The magazine has won highest honors from the Association of Educational Publishers and the Parents’ Choice Award. To purchase a subscription, visit SIKids.com/subscribe.
