The United States Tennis Association and the Uglydoll brand have partnered to create three limited-edition tennis-themed characters for this year’s U.S. Open.
The commemorative dolls are now available at the FAO Schwarz Fifth Avenue store in New York CIty, and will appear at U.S. Open event retail shops Aug. 23. Consumers also will be able to purchase the merchandise online at www.uglydolls.com and www.usopenshop.org.
Uglydoll characters Ox, Big Toe and Trunko will be available in three sizes and come with their own tennis-inspired narrative.
“The USTA’s partnership with Uglydoll illustrates both brands’ broad appeal among tennis fans and fun-loving consumers of all ages,” says Paul White, director of licensing at USTA. “We are pleased to be the first sports entity that Uglydoll has partnered with and look forward to offering tennis fans a fun new twist on Uglydoll characters.”
