    Eh, the Spam line is clearly going to be fodder by Hipster college students that only buy them ironically.

    But the fact that Muppet stuff is selling like crazy is a very good sign indeed. Still completely flabbergasted that they just don't make more Muppet stuff if it sells that well.

    I was hoping I'd see a backpack and lunchbox but no such luck. :(

    Major score for me yesterday! I got everything (Even the socks) except for the note cards, which I have purchased on eBay, and the notebook with just Kermit and Piggy. SO happy to have been able to get the majority in one trip! :)

    Yeah, they could have made a lot more stuff along these lines, but I'm glad we got this. And who knows, maybe the powers that be have noticed that this stuff is flying off shelves, and will take note. We can hope anyway.

    SO, if anyone has an extra notebook with Kermit and Piggy, I'd gladly coompensate you for it! :)

    That is the ONLY thing left I need to get is the socks! I was going to get them today but didn't feel like going back up to Target. Lol! And I'm guessing most people went for the Kermit & Piggy notebook? :):mad: I'm sure you can get the notebook on Ebay as well though?

    You would think so, but eBay has all BUT the one I'm looking for. Hahaha. ALL the other 3. I'll keep looking though. And yeah, the socks are cool, gave 'em to my sister 'cause 1.) My foot is way to big. And B.) Imma dude, so... the only ones I may be able to pull off would be the Animal ones. Haha.

    Earlier this week my husband was able to find me the note cards, pencil case, 3 pairs of socks and magnets... but no notebooks, which I was bummed about. No pencils, either. Only 1 of the 2 Targets here had any Muppets stuff.

    I know I went back to the school section of Target hoping I'd stumble upon a Muppet backpack or lunch box. But ehh no such luck...I knew they didn't have any but still didn't hurt to look! Although there wasn't a shortage on CARS or Disney Princess' :p

    Yeah, I keep hoping to see a muppets school bag. I know Disney pack pact made muppets school bags in 2012 but I have no idea where they are sold.

    Concerning the $1 muppets items at target, the two closest stores by me never received the products and when I call the stores to see if they are instock yet then the people act like I crazy. A store 30 mins from me had the muppets merchandise, but never received the notebooks (since the items are only $1 each, I bought a couple for present use, future use, and display purposes). I still have no idea how target determines what goes in what store bc recently I noticed no two stores carry the same merchandise.

    I know I had to go to two Targets to get my stuff. Was kind of a pain but I'm lucky I don't live too far from either. If it makes you feel better the two by me never got the bedding in.

    I had to drive about 1 1/2 hrs from me to a target for the muppets bedding. On a positive note, u r able now to buy some of the bedding online

    Oh that's great! Cause I wanted to get the pillow cases. I can't buy the bedding itself cause I have a queen size bed but I really wanted the throw and the pillow cases. Thanks!

    Also if it makes you feel better the cashier at the first Target I went to looked at me like I was nuts checking out. :p

    I got the socks!!! All my dollar buys at Target are now complete!!! I still might go back at some point though and get another set of notecards. :)

    That's awesome!!! I recieved my note cards from eBay, but went back to Target Friday and picked up another set, as well as the elusive notebook I'd been looking hard and heavy for. So, I too, have the completed set!!! :)

    Haha. Yeah, when I went by there, there was more than a handful. Patience is always a virtue. :)

    Lol! I never said it was, trust me. I was willing to pay all kinds of money, just to have that notebook. But I'm so glad I didn't!!! Lol.
