The Story of OYO Sports
It all started at the ballpark. A father took his son to Fenway Park for a Red Sox game. Taking in the sights and sounds of the park, a true New England rite of passage, the duo would begin exploring the confines of the park in search of toys. As their searches went without results, an idea was born: Creating minifigures of athletes that kids could play baseball with at a game.
What does the OYO name stand for?
It's an OYO face! Two eyes, a nose, and a smile! Its easy to remember and easy to say for any age.
