    Hey guys, I just went to Hallmark and found they had some new Muppet items out.

    Here is a link to a picture of my Muppet haul:

    A lot of cool new stuff, including two new Cubeez boxes/tins of The Swedish Chef and Rowlf the Dog. I will also post a message with more information of each of the items I found. A bit over priced, but great for any Muppet lover. Something for the Christmas or Hanukah lists.

    Thanks for sharing the pics, descriptions, and prices. The desk button seems fun!

    I forgot to tell something about the 2 sound buttons. Both have an on/off switch, so that you can save the battery life.

    I wonder if there will be another wave of Muppet items from Hallmark?
    Does anyone know?

    Does your Kermit Calendar have a crease mark on Kermit's face?
    Hallmark also have Swedish Chef and Beaker figures in the style of the Take a Leap of Faith figure.

    A big thank you to Muppet Stuff for the pics.

    Thank you "Muppetperson" for posting the 2 pictures of Beaker and Swedish Chef figures! I'm now on a mission to find these 2 Muppet items. I'm calling it "Operation Hallmark Hunt".

    As for the crease mark on Kermit's face on the calendar - My Kermit doesn't have any odd creases. I do see a weird crease on the neck line, but I think that represents the authentic Kermit puppet. You know, where Jim's or Steve's hand/wrist would be bending Kermit's head. The detail in some of these Hallmark figurines is incredible.

    So your Kermit doesn't have any creases above the mouth like this one?
    There are a few that do, so it must be a fault in a limited batch.

    Still on my "Hallmark Hunt" for the Swedish Chef and Beaker figures, but no luck so far. I've now been to 8 different Hallmark stores, but nobody has these 2 figures. Has anyone seen these at a Hallmark near you? One Hallmark store told me these figures should have come out in September, but were never shipped to them. Hopefully, they will arrive soon!

    Wow, that's a lot of great stuff! The Kermit on a log calendar is SUPER COOL! I want that, I may have to invest in one of those!

    I FOUND THEM!
    After searching 14 Hallmark stores, I finally found the Beaker and Swedish Chef figurines. "Operation Hallmark Hunt" completed! Here is a picture of my set:

    http://i1303.photobucket.com/albums/ag155/muppetfan86/Beaker amp Swedish Chef_zpsv3buwlev.jpg

    I bought 3 sets. (Each figurine is priced at $16.95). One for me, one for a friend who also is a Muppet fan, and an extra set. If any one is interested and can't find these, I can put the extra set up for sale on eBay. Just post a reply or 'like' this post. If there is enough interest, I will put my extra set on eBay next week.

    As for the picture, Kermit just had to have his photo op and be included. I always have room for Kermit!

    I cant see the picture :sigh: I bet it's cool though! Good luck selling it on Ebay!

    I just listed the Beaker and Swedish Chef figurines on eBay. I listed them separately so people won't have to buy both if they don't want to. The eBay listing will end next Sunday night on November 8th, 2015.

    Anyone heard if Hallmark is producing anymore items in their Muppet line for 2016? Many Hallmark stores don't even have the Muppet line on their shelves. Very sad.

    I like all these pieces of merchandise and wish I could own them, especially the Mrs. Piggy eyemask.

    I'm a flight attendant so I always try to go to a halmark store on my layovers if I can. I was looking for the Rowlf and Chef Cubz for the longest time but got them in....lol I don't remember! but I saw them in Burbank. A lot of hallmarks stores seem to be going out of business in my area. I was hoping they would make more Muppet Cubz and itty bitty's. At least a Fozzie Cubz.

    I had to order them through a Hallmark store that is not a franchise. The franchise shops said they couldn't special order items. I don't think these 3 sets ever were put out in the stores. That was about 4 months ago. Most Hallmark stores have discontinued the Muppet line.

    I have an extra set of the Kermit, Miss Piggy, and Animal note pads.
    If anyone is interested, I can put the extra set up on e-Bay this weekend. Let me know if you would want them sold individually or as a set.
    Here is what I paid for them:

    Kermit set (3 different pads w/ Kermit pen) $12.95
    Miss Piggy set (w/ pencil) $5.95
    Animal playing the drums note pad $12.95

    I can also put up more detailed pictures if anyone wants.
