Besides this, for non-holders, each plush character is available for $24.44, and the toy figure’s price stands at $29.99 per piece. Moreover, the blind box figure prices stand at $9.99 per box.
Each VeeFriend character collectible has an inspirational story
Gary’s characters are linked with an inspirational story that improves people’s outlook on happiness and success.
There are a total of 283 characters in the Veefriends Collection. Gary Vaynerchuk imagined, created, and drew all of them. Moreover, he also curated 10 of them for this special limited run.
Furthermore, Toikido, a London-based entertainment company, 3D designed the characters that Vaynerchuk chose for this occasion.
In addition, each of these collectibles has a story in a 3D animated form. Users can watch the 3D animated story by scanning the QR code on the product box.
