Bunsen & Beaker Doll Set

A science experiment gone terribly wrong? No, it's just Bunsen and Beaker as plush dolls. For the first time ever you can snuggle up with your favorite scientist and his assistant Beaker. Dr. Bunsen Honeydew comes complete with his trademark glasses sans eyeballs. Beaker has that classic surprised look which will be helpful for when you come up with your own experiments in the lab. Of course, what scientist would be complete without a lab coat and saddle shoes? When asked how he felt about being portrayed in doll form, Beaker replied, "Meep, meep, meep, meeeeep!" Well that pretty much sums it up.

Kermit & Piggy Wedding Set

The wedding set features none other than Miss Piggy and Kermit all dressed up for their moment of knot tying. Miss Piggy is wearing a white lace wedding gown while carrying a bouquet of yellow and pink pastel roses that accentuate her purple gloves. A pearl necklace, pink pumps and a ribbon tiara finish off Miss Piggy's stunning look. Kermit, the dashing groom, sports a black tuxedo with a single breasted jacket and pin-striped pants. A purple vest and tie compliment the entire ensemble. With permanent grins, this happy couple will certainly become a favorite among many Muppet fans.
