Is there a new Rowlf plush?

    I was searing the Muppet tag in Instagram tonight and found this:


    Does anyone know anything? I can't seem to find anything online. It appears to be inside of a Toys R Us.

    Dunno why, but it looks like a UK toy shop to me, or maybe a Babies-R-Us? Also, Rowlf's forehead is too big! :D But I'd still buy one. ;)

    That would be awesome if there was a new Rowlf plush! I too would buy one. Hopefully some more light can be shed on this.

    It'd be nice if there was a new Rowlf plush. I could really use a nice-sized Rowlf for my collection.

    On the other hand, I don't know if I'd even want that Rowlf judging from the picture. Though it's hard to fairly judge the coloring in that picture, the colors look way too off, plus his forehead, as mentioned, is way too big.

    Wow, Rowlf and Bunsen!!! Gotta track these down, though I reeeeeeally hope Disney Store or Toys'R'Us will just include Rowlf (and Scooter! and Dr. Teeth!) in a hopeful 2nd series of plush. :D

    I had no idea that a Rowlf was made in 2011...I really need a Rowlf plush, so even if he isn't in the greatest proportions, I'll still look out for him. :sympathy:

    This Rowlf was released earlier than 2011. From what I can recall, he first started showing up online in early 2009. He was released by a South American Department store chain called Falabella -- they're in Chile, Argentina, Peru and Columbia -- as a part of a promotion that also included plushes of Kermit, Fozzie, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and Animal (i.e. the "usuals"). I am unclear on how the promotion worked, as I don't speak a lick of Spanish, but I assume it was a purchase-with-purchase kind of thing. Each of the characters was released in a number of different sizes, and I've been hunting them down over the past 3 years.

    I actually have three Miss Piggys (18-inch, 9-inch, and a hand puppet), two Gonzos (24-inch & 18-inch), three Fozzies (24-inch, 16-inch and 9-inch), two Animals (24-inch and 13-inch), and two Rowlfs (15-inch and 8-inch) in my personal collection. And yes, a 24-inch Rowlf was on eBay a few weeks back; at the time, I did not realize that I was missing that one, or I would have bid! The only character that I am missing entirely is Kermit who was, frankly, kind of scary looking.

    So no, Rowlf is not entirely new... but he IS pretty hard to track down. Hope that helps!

    BTW, the Bunsen, Beaker & Chef in the blog that MuppetPerson linked to are NOT a part of this line -- those are Sababa Beanies. Interestingly enough, I got a few of the ones in my collection from A-na Toys!

    Travis, you really need to lock into that Muppet Collectibles Guide that you have been thinking about. If anybody was to release one, with your knowledge, you are the one to do it!:):wisdom:
