Lin-Manuel Miranda and his dog Tobi are getting Pin Mates figures. Entertainment Earth has joined up with Miranda's imprint TeeRico to make toys and the first offering is an adorable pair of Pin Mates figures. The wooden figure line has really taken off the past couple years, and these will probably prove to be just as popular. Plus, a portion of each sale will be donated to charity. You can order one here.
Entertainment Earth – a popular worldwide toys and collectibles destination – is thrilled to announce the signing of a license with TeeRico by Lin-Manuel Miranda (the Hamiltoncreator's merchandise brand) to create a toy and collectible product line.
