This Kermit has poseable arms and legs. He is 18-inches. Applause's body puppet is similar to the 1993 Eden Toys Kermit body puppet, but with more stuffing in the head and poseable arms and legs. The stuffing in the puppet's head really belongs in his body. Eden got it right, Applause didn't.

Statler & Waldorf
One of the biggest highlights of the Igel line are the first ever plush dolls of Muppet hecklers, Statler & Waldorf. And they were definitely worth the wait. These are musts for your collection.
Incredible detail has been given to the beautiful craftsmanship of these dolls even down to Waldorf's triple chin and Statler's hawk-like nose. Waldorf is wearing a brown three-piece suit with a light blue shirt and a brown tie with a flowery pattern. While Statler comes in a blue pin-stripe suit with a light blue shirt and blue dotted tie. Pictured is the original release of these dolls. The box was redone in 2000 and there were slight changes to the dolls such as eye color and clothing.
Also in 2000, Igel released a red plush couch and also two red chairs for fans to pose their Statler and Waldorf dolls. There is nice detail in the red fabric and stitching on the couch and chairs. Statler and Waldorf first appeared sitting in two chairs in the 1975 pilot, "The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence".
Magic Talking Kermit Doll
This is the only Kermit doll ever produced as part of a Sesame Street doll line. It's a special doll produced for Sesame Street's 30th Anniversary, honoring Kermit as "Sesame Street's #1 Guest Star!" and honoring Henson for his contributions to educational television. This doll was produced as a one-time co-production between the Children's Television Workshop and The Jim Henson Company (which owns the rights to Kermit).
The doll is bright green, with a slightly furry texture, and his collar is made from a light green velvety fabric. A plastic "30th Anniversary" Sesame Street badge is attached into his collar, and a "Jim Henson" signature is stitched into the bottom of his left foot. When you press his stomach, he opens his mouth and says, "Hi ho, Kermit the Frog here. Everybody sing!" Then he sings the opening lines of "Caribbean Amphibian," following it with a "Ribbit ribbit!"
When you press his mouth closed, he'll hum the song, and you can alternately press his stomach and his mouth to hear bits of the song sung or hummed. If you press his foot, he'll sing the entire song. Press one hand and he'll say "Ribbit ribbit!" Press the other hand and you hear the sound of a buzzing fly - which he can "catch" with a slurping sound when you press his stomach. This doll is perfect for collectors and Kermit lovers, with lots of neat special features.
