    It seems the manufacturers or ornament company is making a frequent error in thinking the pig sells big. No matter how popular she is on her own, when pegged with other Muppet characters she's usually the weakest seller. :mad: For some reason, that's just the way it is.

    People like Fozzie (and Gonzo for that matter). As strange as it sounds, they should have made more bears and short-packed the pig. However, that Piggy pose does look good. Can't tell from the picture - hope they didn't make her skinny!:o

    It's the same Mickey/Minnie Logic. Piggy does have fans, but she never really sells as well as the odd man out characters, like Animal or Beaker.

    That said, I wish Target carried these. Wal+marts aren't too plentiful in my area, and I doubt I'd be able to find these anywhere else.

    Thanks! It's just so cool that new Muppet stuff is trickling out on store shelves. Especially Muppet holiday stuff. The Muppets used to saturate the Christmas season.

    They do, but it's just easier to find the Sesame Street muppets nowadays. They have several items at Target. Mini orniments, large orniments, different regular sized orniments with a free miniature attatched, stockings, and Singing plush dioramas.

    Honestly, I'd be happy if someone got the hint and made a Bunsen and Beaker or a Swedish Chef orniment.

    I have not seen any of these in my local Walmart's. :mad:

    I haven't seen any at the local Walmarts by me either. I mean they don't even have a space for them. I have been to at least 4 looking. This may be a stupid question, but does anyone know if they are being sold anywhere else? I would just rather buy my own then fight it out on ebay.

    Looking at that picture, I have seen the Kermit in the assortment of small American Greetings orniments they sell at Shaws supermarkets. But just one Kermit, no Piggy, no Fozzie. I had a feeling they had those.

    Seems like those are the only 2 retailors that have them.

    Hmmm... I think I'll have to check my local grocery stores. That was the only other thing I could think of.

    I'd have to ask my boyfriend if the Wal-Mart where he works has these ornaments or not. And then I'll ask him if he's seen them. I'd like to see them since I've about them in this thread. :) :confused: :halo:
