“As Mattel continues to pioneer bringing toy brands into the NFT space, we are thrilled to be  working with Gary and his impressive VeeFriends collectibles,” said Richard Dickson, President  and Chief Operating Officer, Mattel. “Gary’s leadership in this digital dialogue, coupled with our  #1 card game in the world UNO, is sure to create a collectible craze as we continue to redefine  the intersection between gaming, digital art and collectability.”

Each VeeFriends x UNO deck also includes a new special rule card, the Wild Sharing Squirrel  card, which requires the next player to post a selfie of themselves and all the cards in their hand  to social media with the hashtag #veefriendsuno.

“If you told 9 year old Gary that he was doing a collaboration with UNO, he would jump in the  swimming pool and swim laps for the rest of his life out of excitement,” said Gary Vaynerchuk.  “I’m so incredibly honored to take my VeeFriends intellectual property and team up with one of  the most iconic properties in the world. Not only am I honored, and little me is excited – I’m  mostly excited for all the people who are going to be able to play this game, expand the  VeeFriends universe and enjoy some of the collectibility that comes along with this  collaboration.”

The new collectible will be available exclusively on Mattel Creations, Mattel’s direct to consumer  platform that features curated items that both celebrate and expand Mattel’s intellectual

property. This collaboration with Gary Vaynerchuk and VeeFriends continues Mattel Creations’  mission of working with the greatest creatives around the world using Mattel brands as a canvas  for collaboration and expression on the cusp of pop-culture.
