Marmals are a revolutionary new line of modular vinyl figurines that are designed to be a tactile launchpad for creative play and storytelling.

Each Marmal arrives as a blank slate, ready to be customized with any variety of paint, marker, and any other materials creators choose to adorn them with. The Marmal is held together with a patent-pending array of magnets that not only have the satisfying snap of the parts coming together, but also offer and endless array of poses for the Marmal that typical figurines cannot achieve.
Marmals are designed for folks aged 13 and up, and there plans to create and develop more customization options for the figurines as the company and product line grows. The hope is to create an entire ecosystem full of different storytelling and imaginative opportunities.
I was tired of toys that are too prescriptive, and wanted to create something that people could take ownership of and feel like they're building and creating a story themselves. Inspired by the toys I loved as a child, and the types of products my children enjoy, I took his decade of experience in product design to develop the figurines. The future of the product revolves around a dedicated and creative online community. Leveraging the ideas behind toy companies like Funko, I hopes to unite Marmal owners around the Instagram hashtag #lovemarmals.
