    Thank you!

    I haven't given him a name though. My Dad & Uncle think he looks like Johnny Fiama.

    No monsters yet? That's surprising.

    Francine was kind of a Christmas present to myself. (I didn't know about the gift cards until after I'd place my order.) I kind of imagine her as a Sesame Street monster who like both dressing up like a princess and looking at weird slimy bugs. For the time being, I'm teaching her to sing "Lydia the Tattooed Lady" (or I will be once i get over this cold.

    Is everyone happy with their whatnots? (that sounds funny)
    Are they worth the 130$

    I have been sitting on the fence for a while, but lately I have been leaning more towards a custom puppet.

    Love them all, great idea for a thread...
    Here's the one I made in NY, HERB!

    Here's a hint for saving a couple buck when you buy on in the shop... Tell them you don't want the special bag it comes in, have them just put the Muppet in a regular FAO bag... Saves you TEN BUCKS on the price.
    Yup. Ten bucks for the bag!

    Can't wait to see more Whatnots!

    My Whatnot came today. Here he is. No name yet, any ideas?

    how does the quality stack up to a professional style puppet on these?

    This is a screencapture of the WhatNot I created yesterday. He's traveling by Studebaker from the Big Apple to my house, so who knows how long it will take him to get here! :excited:

    I think I'm going to call him "Hugh Betcha"... since he kinds looks like a game show host to me. :super:

    He looks awesome! I think he'd be like a muppetized version of a game show host like Bob Barker (of course Bob Barker has white hair, but doesn't wear glasses!)

    Thread bump.

    I just got my whatnot last week when we went to New York. It was really fun and the people working there were great! They even gave me a "Kermit's 50th Anniversary" pin that you can see pinned on the jacket. :)

    I'm still trying to think of a name for her, though. (Maybe the fact that the CD just happened to be lying there on the couch in the corner of the camera frame is a sign. Maybe I'm just crazy. Eh, most likely the second one and/or both. :crazy:)

    Cool puppet....maybe it's me though...all of the whatnots i have seen seem like they are so poor quality....Muppets and whatnots are supposed to be fleece and good quality...what are they made of...and are they heavy to operate? or are they lightweight?

    The quality is very very good... It's a custom toy at the end of the day, so you're not going to get a truely professional puppet or Muppet. Overall pretty lightweight too. So as far as toy puppets go they are the greatest mouth puppets manufactured. They are fleece, but not "antron", that would probably bump the price by a hundred, hahaha...
    Highly recomended for the Muppet fan and puppet fan.
