The Muppets Plush Collection

Disney Store Exclusive The Muppets Plush Collection - Kermit the Frog, Walter, Miss Piggy & Fozzie Bear

What can I say, The Blot loves me some Muppets! And I especially love the new The Muppets movie (which I highly recommend everyone seeing in theaters). While Disney has done a great job promoting The Muppets, I was more than a little shocked when I realized they really didn’t release any new merchandise to tie-in with the film. I guess they didn’t have much faith that The Muppets would be a hit? I’ve been to my local Disney Store a few times in the past month and the only Muppet merchandise they have are coffee mugs and a new line of Muppet plush dolls hidden in a back corner. And when I say hidden in a back corner I’m being literal here! It was all very surprising.

Disney Store Exclusive The Muppets Plush Collection - Gonzo, Animal, Beaker & Rizzo the Rat

The Muppets Plush Collection is a Disney Store exclusive, and includes 8 characters in all: Kermit the Frog, Walter, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Animal, Beaker and Rizzo. Each plus figure is 17” tall (except Rizzo who is 12” tall), features a ''Genuine Authentic Original Disney Store'' patch and retails for $16.50 (the smaller Rizzo is $12.50). From what I’ve seen they’re actually pretty cool dolls, but what’s a guy got to do to get a sweet Dr. Teeth figure? Plus, who wants Beaker without Bunsen Honeydew? You can purchase all 8 Muppet plush dolls seen here directly from the Disney Store online store here.
