Discussion in 'Muppet Merchandise' started by DannyRWW, Jul 11, 2012.
If Danny just saw the stuff yesterday maybe all the stores haven't gotten their inventory in.
My sister lives 1 1/2 hours away from me so I had here check her target since I will be seeing her tomorrow! They had muppets pencil case, magnets, notebooks, and pencils. A target 15 mins from me had the muppets cards with envelopes, pencils, and socks. Since everything was just $1 each I was able to buy a couple duplicates for myself!!!! I took pictures on my iphone however, I cannot figure out how to upload them onto the site
The problem is target has different desinations for their stores (Like SUper Target, Hometown stores I think, and some other things)...what happens is they only do certain items at certain types of stores...so I have maybe four targets all with in 20 minutes of me...the one that is the closest does not have the Muppet items. The one a little further away does.... so Happy hunting...I did check the tag underneath and it said something along the lines that they were to put out the items July 8th so yes they are new so some stores may not have put them out....I have not had an opportunity to load pictures as my computer has been giving me trouble...but I do want to say this...while the items are kermit and piggy heavy they do show all the muppets (I think scooter is in group shot on the magnets) these are some of the best cheap products I've seen in a while...why they did not have something like this when the movie came out...yes I know they are school supplies but Target has stuff like that in the dollar bin all year
I guess they're selling well.
I only found note cards/invitations when I went.
Same with me!
I'm heading to Target today!!!! Wish me luck!!!
Finally got some pictures to post. Yes, all items were a dollar and they were all found in the Dollar Spot at Target. I think the only thing we didn't get were socks.
Pencils and set of 8 notecards
Back of package showing all four designs of notecards (sorry it's blurry)
Journals/notepads - I think there were 4 different designs. One had just poser Kermit with green background and the other was Kermit, Fozzie, and Piggy
Pencil case - same design on both sides
2 different sets of magnets
I got some good finds!!! They didn't have the pencils or the little 4 pack of magnets but I'm gonna go to another Target tomorrow and see if I can find them! But everything else in Cindy's pictures I did get! I didn't get the socks either. I wanted too but maybe I'll get them next week.
I wish they would have also made muppets pencil sharpeners to go with the pencils, muppets ink pens, and muppets stickers for $1. I do love Thoth everything that was made muppets by innovative designs for $1 and am very happy they made the items!! I hope they continue!!
I'm gonna post pictures of my finds tomorrow once I've gotten everything!! I hope the other Target has the pencils and I didn't see that one notebook Cindy has. I think they are selling well though there wasn't many notebooks left.
Just an FYI, there are 2 different muppets pencil packs at target where each pack has different muppets pencil designs so good luck searching
Oh, I either missed that or our store didn't have the other pack. Someone needs to post a pic of the other set. At first I thought our store had different pencils and then I just realized that they're the same pencils just in a different order in the pack. Almost tricked me though. LOL
Now Cindy is forcing me to buy them with her pictures...hopefully I'll be able to get some in August on a small trip I'm going on, hopefully thee Target there will have them...
But...I'm loving the inclusion of Rizzo on them, yet that sort of cancels out with the inclusion of some stock photos...but it's still nice to see Rizzo making a bit of a comeback.
I went to Target this morning feeling hopeful, but there was nothing. I'll have to try the Target on the other side of town.
Muppet School items misson completed!!! I will give some advice for anyone wanting to go. You do have to rummage through the bins. At least I did. A lot of the stuff is mixed in with other things. It's a little disorganized if you ask me but I guess that's why they call it the 1.00 bins. Lol! I had to literally move stuff over in one bin just to get to the pencils. And there is two different designs. Also on the small magnets look carefully because I found one pack has Kermit in his tux with the pink background the other one had 2 of the same one so...just some advice when you go hunting. I will say the other Target I went to today had a little more to give then the one I was at yesterday. But they didn't have any pencil cases so either they didn't get any or they were already sold out. So different stores are gonna carry different items. I didn't buy the socks because I really can't afford to buy anymore this weekend. Lol! But I do plan on getting them next week!
And yes the cashier looked at me like I was nuts.
Was that travel mug in the dollar bin???
Oh that's not from Target that's from tervis. Unfortunately I didn't pay 1.00 for it more like 25.00. Lol! I just got it yesterday in the mail and I LOVE it!!! They have other Muppet ones though Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, they might've had Gonzo but don't quote me on that. I just bought that one cause it has everyone and The Muppets logo on it. Sorry I should've moved it before I took the picture I had water in it and just set it down. Didn't think to move it out of the shot. :/
I see what you did there. Lol!
Definately gonna check my Target Tuesday!!! Really want all of these!
