Jim Henson "Creature Puppets" at Chick-fil-A

    I wasn't sure whether to post this here or at Family Worlds or what. Please feel free to move it!

    My friend was at Chick-fil-A with her kids today, and she said the kids' meal prize was "something Jim Hensony." I looked at their web site, and starting July 16, they have "Jim Henson Creature Puppets" listed as the prize. Right now they're officially still on the Little Critter books, but I guess some locations have moved on already. I don't have any other details, but once July 16 rolls around, there should be a picture on the CFA web site. Something to look out for.

    Thanks for pointing this out. I will have to make my whole family get kids meals next time we visit Chick-fil-A. :)

    Very cool! Wish we had more details, I'm very curious to see what it is.

    I think that's a different one--those are board books for the 3-and-under kids' meals. Although, it would be perfect if they had those at the same time as the puppets, wouldn't it? The older kids get the puppets; the wee ones get the Pajanimals books?

    Not at all. If you read the article closely, you'll see it's dated last year and the books came out last October.

    I think I actually saw them offered, but didn't get to order one, as it was a Sunday, and even in Malls, they're closed that day.

    I would respect that more if I didn't love their waffle fries.

    Cool. So do we know if these are finger puppets, bigger puppets...?

    Now I have to figure out if I have any Chick-fil-A's around me...I think there may be one about 15 0r so minutes away, but I'm not sure...

    EDIT: Pfft...my closest is more like a half hour away...which isn't bad, except I never really go to the area it's in...so I doubt I'll be getting any of these...

    Don't sweat, we will find out if the prizes are ACTUALLY WORTH driving 30 minutes away to get.

    You can ask for the toys without the meal. that's what i've done with many fast food promotions. ;)

    All I want to know is this...

    Are these going to be paper crafts? Cuz if they are, forget it.

    *Facepalm* why can't we get ACTUAL QUALITY pupets as toys. At this point, i would settle for a felt finger puppet! I really got my hopes up for this, but I am not sure I really want them anymore....:boo::grr::mad::grouchy:

    Paper crafts AREN'T toys! They aren't even prizes. They're something you can PRINT OUT at home. For free (minus the cost of ink and paper that is).

    That's like calling a sticker a "prize." It isn't. This is Cracker jack quality garbage, and a TOTAL disappointment, even looking at this from a child's angle.

    Especially since we got THIS out of McDonalds.

    Even the BOX was more of a Happy Meal prize than these are.

    So TOTALLY forget it.

    Paper puppet crafts = not worth driving 30 minutes completely out of my way to get

    The toys weren't anything to get excited about even before this whole Chick fila thing started which I'm sick and tired of hearing about on both ends now.

    Plastic tubes with cardboard cut outs to tape to them.

    Not even stickers.

    They were too cheap to even use stickers.

    I dunno... I'm loving the McDonalds 16 piece Spongebob figures that actually DO something AND look great on display. THAT is a Kid's Meal prize! Even if it wasn't for the controversy, I'd skip those "Puppets."

    Actually, there were tabs on the cardboard cut outs that fit into slots in the plastic tubes. But it was still a pretty lousy toy.
