Play Fair is a celebration of toys and games, and we’re heightening the celebration with a brand new toy created just for us! Play Fair’s official mascot figure is a collaboration among a number of amazing artists, and the result is a fun, friendly new toy fit for everyone from kids, moms, and dads to the designer toy collector!
The Play Fair mascot figure’s original design comes from artist Paul Petyo, who also created the Play Fair logo, and was modeled by Michael DeFeo, a designer who’s worked on Despicable Me, Ice Age, and more, and the process and production was overseen by Brett Klisch, a toy maker with over 20 years in the toy industry.
The final figure is super cute, posable, and expressive – and would love to call your desk, shelf, or play room home!
