The toys add a playful spin to some of the most popular cartoon characters and superheroes known to man.

Fools Paradise is a made-to-order art toy manufacturer that has amassed a huge following for their playful designs. Most of their toys feature famous characters like Super Mario and Popeye the Sailor Man that have either been fitted with exaggerated muscle definition or unconventional designs. For instance, one of their best sellers happens to be a Super Mario art toy that has been made to recreate classic movies such as Forrest Gump and Leon: The Professional. Other characters they have used for their toys include superheroes Batman and Superman as well as basketball legend Michael Jordan.

Their Michael Jordan figurines come in both the white and red versions of the Off White Air Jordan 1s.
