Mascot Minis were created by new parents Savannah and Patrick in 2013 when they realized that the cute animal themed toys on the market missed the mark for sports-loving families.
Patrick, a Penn State graduate and Navy Pilot from State College, Pennsylvania grew up with four brothers in a family where sports were a constant theme. His wife Savannah, an avid golfer and Gators fan from Jacksonville, Florida earned her MBA and pilots license shortly before the two met in 2009. Their first son Penn was born in 2013 and soon after, they took a leap of faith and set out on a mission to figure out a better way to connect him with their sports passions.
On a Saturday afternoon in the fall while watching college football, Patrick was enthusiastically sharing his love for the Nittany Lions with 6-month old Penn, but was bothered that he was playing with a trendy rubber giraffe. It was hardly appropriate for a young fan named Penn! Savannah searched for a similar toy made from easy to clean natural materials, age appropriate, teething-safe, and designed to show off their team pride. With no compelling options available, Savannah and Patrick realized they had hit on something that other parents were likely looking for as well.
As a result, Mascot Minis was born.
Work continues to further expand the Mascot Minis lineup by bringing the most adored college and pro team mascots to fans everywhere.
Game Day Minis Football and Baseball toys are great for fans of any team.
