Our family is sort of split when it comes to MLB. I’m a Cubs fan, I have been since I was a little girl. I married a Canadian who is a Blue Jays fan and now our kids are Blue Jays fans. I was excited to hear of a new building blocks toy by OYO SportsToys. They have sets and mini figures for almost any MLB team, NFL team and NHL team.
For my review I recieved the Infield Set, Chicago Cubs, 84pc Building Block Set. It comes with a field, two players and an umpire, as well as a baseball, glove and hats.The set comes with easy to follow instructions. Once the field is built it has a 3D look to it.The field also features the Cubs logo on it, letting you know it’s the Cubs home field.
I also received a #20 Josh Donaldson, Toronto Blue Jays, Third Baseman mini figure. He comes with a hat, bat, glove, baseball and headphones, as well as a Blue Jays logo base. My girls loved having him be the batter and play against the Chicago Cubs, In their world, he was winning. It was cute to watch.
Something unique about these mini figures are the bendable arms. They have an extra piece to make them have elbows. This allows them to be more realistic when holding a ball and glove or a bat. Their knees also bend to allow one of the players to be the catcher and it looks like he’s kneeling.
For the most part I’d say these would be used as collector’s pieces, but kids can have fun with them too. We all want to add to our collections and create the ultimate teams to play against each other. We also want to get an NFL set of the Greenbay Packers, this is a team we all can agree on.
