Need some help putting the toys together? Check out the video for a demonstration. And please share photos of your toys on Twitter (tag @WCPO) and Facebook.

We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to the Reds for allowing WCPO to use the mascots' likeness in creating the toys. Now break out your scissors, print the designs and get crafty.

Go Reds!
