Sales of Bleacher Creatures’ Incredibly True-to-Life Puig Plush Figure via Facebook and Instagram Will Send a Portion of Each Sale to Puig’s Charitable Wild Horse Fund

Yasiel Puig with his Mini-Me

We were thrilled to see how much Yasiel liked his Bleacher Creatures plush, and we’re delighted to work with him and our partner Soldsie to make it easy for Yasiel’s fans to get their ‘mitts’ on the plush as well!

In the midst of his physical therapy for the hamstring tear that kept him off the field for more than a month, Los Angeles Dodgers right-fielder Yasiel Puig got support from an unexpected source: his 10-inch-tall Mini Me. “Rehab with my twin by my side,” Puig tweeted, posting a photo of himself with the incredibly true-to-life Yasiel Puig plush figure from Bleacher Creatures.

Now Puig and Bleacher Creatures, the innovative licensing manufacturer known for faithfully rendered plush figures of pro-sports stars and entertainment characters, are partnering with online marketing firm Soldsie to make the adorable plush easily available to Puig’s legions of fans.

Through his officially verified Facebook and Instagram pages, Puig will post a photo hanging out with his Bleacher Creatures plush. When fans simply comment with the word “Sold” on the Facebook post or comment with the word “Sold” plus their email address on Instagram, they will automatically be sent the invoice to complete their purchase for Puig’s 10” Bleacher Creature plush. It is that simple.

Puig’s Facebook and Instagram posts about the Bleacher Creatures plush sale will appear on August 24. A portion of each sale will go directly to Puig’s charitable Wild Horse Fund (the title comes from the nickname given to Puig by legendary Dodgers announcer Vin Scully). The Wild Horse Fund provides contributions to a variety of nonprofit organizations.

“We were thrilled to see how much Yasiel liked his Bleacher Creatures plush, and we’re delighted to work with him and our partner Soldsie to make it easy for Yasiel’s fans to get their ‘mitts’ on the plush as well,” says Matthew Hoffman, founder and CEO of Bleacher Creatures. “It’s a win-win-win opportunity, with terrific benefits to the charitable organizations served by the Wild Horse Fund.”
